Barbra Streisand has revealed that she once refused advances of legendary actor Marlon Brando after she agreed to join him on a drive in the 1970s.

“He wanted to go to the desert to see the wildflowers,” the New York Post quoted her as saying after an advance screening of The Guilt Trip on Sunday.

But The Godfather star apparently wanted to see more than local flora.

“He wanted to stay overnight,” she said.

“I said, ‘No, I don’t know you well enough.’

The adventure, disappointing to Brando, remained a “daytime trip to see the sagebrush and the wildflowers,” she said.

“We went into a little hamburger joint with a creaky screen door. I remember sitting there at the counter ordering hamburgers and thinking, ‘This is Marlon Brando!’” she added.
