Barbra Streisand regrets wasting time fretting over her looks because she has realized she was "quite beautiful" as a young woman.
The star battled feelings of insecurity over her unconventional appearance growing up and admits she feared rejection after shooting to fame.
But now Streisand insists she has grown to appreciate her "strange face".
She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "Recently, doing DVDs, I've had to look at myself in old movies or on album covers...I thought, I really looked good there. Why didn't I know that then?
"But I do have a strange face. It changes so much from angle to angle. Sometimes I think I really did look quite beautiful and a lot of times I looked really bad. It's a shame. But I'm not going to cry over it. I'm trying to be in the moment, I'm enjoying my life."
