Richard E. Grant’s Fan Letter As A 14 Year Old To Barbra Streisand! The Oscar Nominee’s Holiday Offer Finally Acknowledged By Babs!

A Boy’s Fan Letter To Barbra Streisand Gets A Response – Thanks To Oscar!

I love this story!

After receiving his first ever Oscar nomination for his role in film “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”, 62-year-old Richard E. Grant has just shared a sweet note he received from screen legend Barbra Streisand – after he shared on Twitter a letter that he’d sent to her at just 14.

The Oscar nominee, who is terrific by the way posted a picture of himself outside Streisand’s Hollywood estate. Grant also posted the 47-year-old fan letter that had he sent her = which was never answered until now! In the letter, notice how he offers a holiday in then Swaziland, the African country where he grew up!

Well, he had to wait a while, but the legendary Actress/Director/Singer finally got back to Grant, and congratulated him on his nomination.

As the Daily Mail reported:

For the second time in two weeks, Grant was left in floods of tears when Streisand told him: ‘Look at you now!’ and saying: ‘you’re terrific in your latest movie’.

She wrote on Twitter: ‘Dear Richard What a wonderful letter you wrote me when u were 14 ! and look at u now! You’re terrific in your latest movie with Melissa congratulations and love Barbra.’

As always, The Daily Mail had this great Hollywood story – thanks as always and everyone should check out their website now!

Richard E. Grant is a terrific Actor, and his autobiography, “With Nails” is a hilarious look at life in Hollywood…it’s a play on the film that made him a star:

“Withnail & I” is a brilliant British black comedy – the story of two struggling Actors who make a disastrous trip to the english countryside to visit “Uncle Monty”!

Here is a look at the film, and the cult following that led to a book all about it:

Bravo to Richard E. Grant for a fanboy’s dream finally coming true!

  1. Aw, sweet indeed.
    “In anticipation of a hasty reply”, well, I guess decades later is better than never! He wrote incredibly proficiently for a 14 year old… And then Twitter comes along and Streisand replies with ‘look at u now’. This is brilliant, thanks for sharing as I hadn’t read this anywhere in the news! 🙂
