Diane Lane:  Streisand Is 'An Amazing Woman'
Diane Lane may have the world’s most intimidating stepmother-in-law, but the star has nothing but good things to say about Barbra Streisand.

"[She] is an amazing woman," Lane tells Redbook magazine in its October issue. "I especially admire her gift for listening to people. If you go out for dinner with her, she'll interview everyone in the restaurant."

Lane, who wed Josh Brolin in 2004, says that the marriage is still going strong. "It's just invigorating to be around him," she says. "Josh completes me because I'm so attracted to his otherness."

Lane, 43, will co-star with Richard Gere for the third time in Nights in Rodanthe. "I feel like Richard is my witness," she says. "He's seen me grow so much. He saw through my walls."

Despite her career, Lane is happiest when she's at home. "To me, there's no greater reward than being around people you care about," she says. "to be at home doing the crossword puzzle cheek to cheek with my daughter – that's a moment."
