The stars of the upcoming film ‘The Guilt Trip,’ Barbra & Seth bonded like mother and son during filming! Find out what made this unlikely pair become the perfect duo with their uncanny on screen chemistry!

Barbra Streisand picks the films she does carefully, but she had some help when selecting to work on The Guilt Trip with Seth Rogen. See what made these two a perfect mother and son on film

“It was interesting, I was talking to a friend that said to me that, ‘You are an actress, and you should act!’ That was interesting but then I read the script out loud with my son, and he thought I should do it. So I decided, what the hell and do it!” Barbra gushed candidly after a screening of her new film The Guilt Trip at AMC Theaters in Century City on Dec. 2.

But another reason could have been the chemistry she had with her co-star Seth, who was quick to add his thoughts on the similarities between Barbra and his own mother saying, “Barbra met my mother because she came to set, and she went to Barbra’s concert. There are similarities, they are both Jewish ladies, so they have a lot of common ground I would say! They are not that different, my mom was a hippy, my mom is more like her character in Meet the Fockers. My mom was a social worker and talks about sex way too much. she will literally post on her Facebook about Paps smears she has just got!”

So HollywoodLifers, will you be going to see The Guilt Trip when it comes out in theaters on Dec. 19?
