On October 18, Elliott Gould told CBS Sunday Morning that he and Barbra Streisand grew in different ways during their relationship. He told the outlet that at one point, Streisand asked him why they grew apart.

"And I said my question would be, 'How could we have grown apart?'" Gould added. "The answer to that is that we didn't grow together, and the reason for that was because she became more important than us."

The actor went on to say that he told Streisand they did great in their relationship and that they made it very fast. Nobody had what they had, he told her.

In a 2017 interview with PEOPLE, Jason, who co-starred with his famous mother in 1991's "The Prince of Tides," said he is not thirsty for fame. According to him, he sort of like being out of the spotlight.

Jason has figured out how to distance himself from even the most widespread pop culture moments. In 2017, he released a full-length music album called "Dangerous Man."

Meanwhile, Jason's father still considers Streisand family. In 2017, Gould told Closer Weekly that the award-winning singer is a very important part of his life.
