Diane Lane once auditioned for a part in the film Yentl - which would have seen her kissing her future mother-in-law Barbra Streisand.

The Unfaithful star auditioned for the part in 1983, with husband Josh Brolin's step-mother. Brolin's father James has been married to Streisand since 1998.

She explains: "I auditioned for Yentl. She's got an audition tape somewhere of me. Amy Irving got the job. It's OK, we're still friends."

In the film, Streisand plays a Jewish girl who disguises herself as a boy in order to enter religious training.

Lane's character in the film would have been required to kiss Streisand on screen.

She adds: "It would have been interesting to make out with her. Can you imagine?"
