“Never,” she replied when asked if she had been sexually mistreated. “I wasn’t like those pretty girls with those nice little noses. Maybe that’s why.”

Okay? Was there a point to highlighting that particular quote from the interview?

Babs seems to hold a lot of bitterness for pretty girls with nice little noses

She's giving credit to her appearance for saving her from sexual harassment.

She was still a sexy knock out in her own way, and deep down she knew/ knows it.

But I think what kept her safe, and males in check, was that she was a real pistol.

They knew better than to mess with her; no doubt she would have won every fight.

^^^
Not to mention her unapproachable, chip on shoulder, Brooklyn, New Yorker personality probably kept even the nice/ benign males at bay.

She's mellowed some in her elder years. James marrying her is testimony to that.

Tell it to Babs. She apparently thinks otherwise.

True, but talented and smart.
And at one time, a real looker.

I think that Barbra was talented enough and well known enough to have made a big stink at the time if she had been sexually harassed and people would have listened to her. She was beautiful when she was young and very talented. Her nose made her unique and I respect her for not changing it to look like someone else's standard of beauty.

She seemed feisty enough to have kicked some ass if someone tried to hassle her and they probably knew better than to mess with her.
