Barbra Streisand has our attention!

At age 74, the triple-threat star poses for the December issue of W magazine in a series of seriously sexy photos. On the cover of the publication, Streisand wears only a white button-down shirt, black tie, sheer black pantyhose and high heels, while seated on the edge of a stool with her legs crossed.

In another image, the two-time Oscar winner sports a short shirt and long jacket -- sans pants -- that she pairs with thigh-high boots and a cowboy hat. Needless to say, Streisand pulls off both these jaw-dropping looks.

In addition to the striking photos, Streisand also opens up to W about the men in her life, including her Hollywood crush and her husband of 18 years, James Brolin.

Even after all these years, she admits that her Hollywood crush is still Marlon Brando, who's been her "favorite" actor since she was 13, when she saw him in Guys and Dolls. "Interestingly, there was a period of 27 years when I didn't sing in public, because of stage fright, and when I finally did, I created a scenario in which I sang 'I'll Know' with Marlon Brando in Guys and Dolls," she recalls. "I put myself in his movie!"

Streisand even spent some time with her crush before he died in 2004. "I invited Brando to my house to see the piece, and he made me take him through my entire show.We then watched a movie together," she notes. "It was wonderful: He was my idol, my biggest crush."

As for her main man, Streisand says there was a "certain amount of intimidation and fear" when men used to ask her out, and that even goes for Brolin. "My husband and I were set up on a blind date. I met him at a dinner and expected a bearded mountain-man type, and he had cut off all his hair and was clean-shaven," she says. "I asked him, 'Who screwed up your hair?' He later told me that's when he fell in love with me. My fella likes to hear the truth, which is unusual."

From The Way We Were to Funny Girl, Streisand says she always thought it was "more interesting" to play strong female roles. "Strong women are, simply, women with opinions. And they have always been treated with suspicion," she explains. "Sadly, the strong women usually don't get the guy at the end of the film."

Streisand set out to change that when she directed the 1996 film, The Mirror Has Two Faces. "I thought, 'Hmm, I've been alone too long. I think I'll do this movie.' And then, in real life, I also got the guy at the end! I wound up getting married," she exclaims. "In a sense, I believe you can manifest your reality."
