Of all the celebs Streisand called on to join her on the album, McCarthy might have been the most starstruck

"I heard you had a Starbucks in your house," McCarthy joked in a clip. "And all the employees have to wear cashmere."

While McCarthy shines under Streisand's direction, the Ghostbusters star was a bit out of her element in the recording booth.
