Veteran singer-actor Barbra Streisand shared her views on the current fight against sexual harassment and #MeToo movement during the the 35th annual PaleyFest, saying that "we are in a strange time".

The Hollywood legend, who was presented with the Icon Tribute during the kickoff to the PaleyFest, commented on how the fight for gender equality is currently at a fever pitch, reported Billboard.

 

"Were in a strange time now in terms of men and women and the pendulum swinging this way and that way but its going to have to come to the center," Streisand told Ryan Murphy in a Q&A.

The 75-year-old star, however, said she was not the target of sexual harassment maybe because she "wasn't like those pretty girls with those nice little noses".

The first event of PaleyFests also saw many clips of Streisand's TV work dating back to her first appearance on TV in 1963 on "The Jack Paar Show".

Streisand also revealed that she did not perform on TV for many years until resurfacing on HBO in 1994 because of crippling stage fright. It was only after "a lot of work on myself" that she overcame her phobia, with some help from a "a little pill called Inderal. 10 milligrams."
