Hoffman v. Streisand...

Hee. I have no idea how true this is, but according to a blogger who seems to have at least some inside info, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand are fighting on the set of the aptly-named Meet The Fockers.

My favorite part:

Populist Streisand even insisted everyone on the set call her Barbra and not "Miss Streisand." When AD Josh King made the mistake of calling her "Barb," however, the creature awakened. "Don't call me that!" Streisand snarled.

Hoffman then made a point to refer to Streisand as "Barb" continuously thereafter. Is Barb in this shot? Should I stand next to Barb? What's my line after Barb's?

Later, after a lunch break, Streisand recoiled in horror when she saw the camera crew all sporting "Bush 2004" buttons. Withering under the diva's stare, DP John Schwartzman admitted sheepishly that Hoffman had put them up to the stunt and passed out the buttons.

At that point, Streisand wheeled around to Hoffman and bellowed, "Dustin, you putz!" and stormed off the set.
