Barbra and Robert both agree that seeing each other instantly transports them to the time they spent together filming. "I remember the fun we had," Robert says. "I remember liking her energy and her spirit; it was wonderful to play off of. I also really enjoyed kidding her. She was fun to kid."
Unlike millions of moviegoers, Robert says he never saw the finished cut of The Way We Were. "I was in another country when the film came out," he says. "I wasn't prepared for its success. Not that I thought it was a failure, I just wasn't prepared for the impact."
Barbra says she's always wanted to do a sequel to The Way We Were, but Robert wasn't interested. "There was a great story with our daughter, who would have become a political activist as well, at Berkeley in 1968, the year of the Democratic Convention," she says. "There was a very interesting story there."
