The Guilt Trip Interview, 2012.
Interviewer: When you accept his offer to go on a road trip with him, you call him Tatala, which is a Yiddish term of endearment that I think is mostly…
Streisand: That wasn’t in the script.
Interviewer: I figured, I figured, and my other guess is that your mother called you Tatala.
Streisand: I wish she did call me Tatala. No, I don’t think so. It’s just, you know, it’s the way I feel about my son, I guess.
Interviewer: Did you call him Tatala?
Streisand: Well, when that - you know, it comes out at moments of endearment, and just they’re like babies. Some part of them always remains a baby to you.
