TALK TALK: Barneys New York is loving Jerry Weintraub these days, and the affection seems to be mutual. To celebrate the uberproducer’s “When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead” book, the store just unveiled three windows at its Beverly Hills unit devoted to Weintraub, whose credits include flicks such as “Ocean’s Eleven,” “Nashville” and “Diner.” “I think that it’s one of the greatest and most important and exciting things that’s ever happened to me,” Weintraub told WWD. One of the windows features quotes from the Hollywood legend, such as “If a bunch of men are discussing you, meeting about you, and scheming to destroy you, it probably means you’re doing something right” and “If I had been around with Van Gogh or Melville, they would not have had to wait so long for fame.” The 72-year-old producer, who is doing a book signing at the store Tuesday, had just one problem with the windows — he wished his parents, who always kept a book of all his hits, were still alive to see them. “It would have made my mother smile ear to ear, and I would have liked that,” he said.
