Barbra Streisand still wants more.

The EGOT-winner revealed at an Emmy Awards For Your Consideration screening of her recent Netflix concert documentary The Music…The Mem’ries…The Magic! that’s she not slowing down after her famed six-decade career — and she’s starting by doubling-down on her partnership with Netflix.

Streisand revealed that a new cut of her 1976 Oscar-winning film A Star Is Born is headed to Netflix (just in time for the highly anticipated remake), and the re-edit will feature never-before-seen footage.

The re-edit will include a previously unaired scene of Streisand playing the guitar. She spent over a year learning how to play the instrument for the film, but she cut the scene last-minute to streamline the plot.

Streisand also announced that several previously aired TV specials are headed to the streaming service: My Name Is Barbra, Color Me Barbra, A Happening in Central Park, Barbra Streisand…And Other Musical Instruments, Barbra Streisand: The Concert, and Barbra Streisand: Timeless.

Fellow multi-talented performer Jamie Foxx sat down with Streisand Sunday night, where the recorded conversation quickly veered toward the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. Streisand called the ongoing discussions a “sensitivity thing,” and she expressed her dismay at lack of female directors in Hollywood. In 1984, she won the Golden Globe for best director for Yentl. Thirty-five years later, she is still the only female to win the coveted award.

When asked what part of her illustrious career she enjoys the most, Streisand settled on movie-making. She has a particular fondness for lighting and cinematography—and being in charge.

“It’s wonderful you don’t have to raise your voice because everyone is finally listening,” Streisand said of directing. Though she didn’t direct, Streisand served as an executive producer for A Star Is Born and had final say on the cut. The news surprised Foxx, who told audiences it’s rare for stars to have the final say on their film.

Streisand said she has a desire to be in control—and it’s why she rarely tours anymore. The tension of routinely performing makes her voice tight and raspy, she said. Plus, there’s still the fear of forgetting her lines. She described herself as “insecure,” feeling insufficient compared to fellow 1970s singers like Joni Mitchell and Carole King, who wrote their own songs.

But it’s an insecurity that isn’t outwardly apparent; few stars have successfully transitioned between Broadway to pop music to acting and directing and, soon, to writing. Streisand continuously alluded to her upcoming memoir, which she said she was partly inspired by her desire to correct a lifetime of false tabloid stories. She’s spent three years writing, but she said she doesn’t see a publication date in the near future.

“I get tired reliving my life,” she said. “In other words, I need to go on with other things.”
