Don't bother asking Barbra Streisand if she's Team Edward or Team Jacob. Babs isn't a big Twilight fan…

"We never read the books but we saw two of the movies," Streisand's husband, James Brolin, told us at the VIP screening of The Tillman Story at L.A.'s Pacific Design Center. "It's not like we didn't like it. It's just we didn't get into it.

"And it's not like we're sophisticated," Brolin continued. "Like everybody else we're glued to 24 every week and all that. It's just a matter of personal taste."

Why on earth did we even talk to Brolin about our favorite vampire movie franchise? Well, he just wrapped Love, Wedding, Marriage with Twi-star Kellan Lutz.

But maybe Mr. Streisand can be converted to come over to the Twi-hard side. "I would love to give it another chance and sit one afternoon and watch them together, one after the other and really, really concentrate," Brolin said. ‘But I want to do that with Inception too because I don't quite understand it."

The Tillman Story is a documentary about Pat Tillman, the former NFL player who was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004 after giving up his football career to join the Army.

Brolin's son, Josh, narrates the film.

"Once I saw [the movie], I was so moved, so moved by the story and by Pat and by Pat's family that I said, ‘I'll do whatever you want me to do. Anytime, anywhere and I will create a space to be totally available to you any way that I can,'" Josh told us. "It's something that happened to our fellow man that was covered up and that's extremely disrespectful to all the soldiers out there. It's that simple. It's a very human story about one of our peers and we want to look out for each other."
