Jennifer Aniston Channels Barbra Streisand For Harper's Bazaar

Jennifer Aniston Channels Barbra Streisand For Harper's Bazaar

Jennifer Aniston pays homage to legendary entertainer Barbra Streisand in the September 2010 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on stands August 17.

The 41-year-old actress, who wears Versace on the mag cover, channeled Barbra in Funny Girl and and What’s Up, Doc? in a series of shots by Mark Seliger.

Here’s what Jen had to share:

On what she’s learned from Barbra Streisand: “You don’t have to stop at one thing. You can do it all if you want to.”

On being in the spotlight: “[Barbra and I] are people who have been put in the spotlight, for better or for worse, and you just keep riding, and you keep overcoming.”

On looking up to Streisand: “Barbra inspires me because there isn’t anything she hasn’t done that she wanted to do, especially as a female in the time when her generation was prime. She’s a true renais­sance woman. . . I had a long conversation with Barbra about directing because I directed a short a couple years ago, and if I don’t do it again soon, I’m going to burst out of my skin. And we also love interior design.”

    she is nowhere near the same calibre as Streisand. so now, to hawk her movie, she has to compare herself to the great Barbra. this woman-girl is delusional.

    Streisand looks great, Aniston looks like she is gasping for air.

    @grow up: “why do you think life revolves around brad – jennifer has moved on! she has a personal life that we don’t know! could be from being called so many names by loons! of course words hurt and are powerful! your hate is at this point uncalled for! jennifer hasn’t mentioned brad or angelina in years! you have a tunnel vision that doesn’t allow you to realize that both women jennifer and angelina can both be successful and that doesn’t mean the other failed. which makes one wonder are you the other woman? in real life!”
    Oh my god, settle down. I DON”T think her life revolves around Brad, that was my point, that it was one bad thing that happened a long time ago, and clearly she HAS moved on. She has a great life, that’s why I don’t understand her complaining and saying how much she has to overcome.
    And I didn’t call her any names. I don’t hate her. I never mentioned Angelina, you did.
    And my post about how Jen has a great life makes you wonder if I am “the other woman” in real life? That’s quite a leap. I don’t see any connection, but for the record I have never been and will never be anyone’s “other woman”. I’m either number one or nothing. I have never cheated on anyone and I would never be with someone who wanted to use me as the other woman.
    By the way, you spewed much more hate at me than I did at JA. In fact, what I said wasn’t hateful at all. The difference is that I actually read your post, while JA will never read what’s written about her in the comments of a JJ post. Just something to think about.

    She says her and Barbra are people who have been “put in the spotlight.” No, they’re both actors, which means they want attention and a spotlight. If she wanted to be a successful actor, and of course she did, then of course that means having at least a bit of a spotlight on you. But they chose their careers, which means they chose to be in the spotlight, nobody ‘put’ them there.

    @honestly…: Her life isn’t defined by a relationship that ended 5 years ago. You don’t know what she has had to deal with or overcome in her lifetime.

    Nope Says:

    Love Streisand – on her ‘ballsy’ has always looked good. Not so Jennifer. There’s something about this chick I’ve NEVER liked, even when she was married to Brad. I think she tries WAY too hard.

    uff Says:

    All right:
    1) “Barbra and I are people who have been put in the spotlight”. uahahahahahahaua! Have been put? Barbra and I?. This lady is ridiculously pathetic. She is trying hard any kind of BS to be put in the spotlight. She stages any possible event, from fake dates to private dinners, lauching cheap perfumes, calling paps when she is on vacation abroad or leaving / arriving. Any sort of possible chance to be in the spotlight is carefully organized to be in the spotlight. Really, Jen, the world is not needing you in the spotlight, take a some days off, better some years off, but this time, please, dont call the papz.
    2) Barbra and I. What a courage. Isn’t she ashamed? She is not a singer. She is not a director. She will never be a director. She is not an actress (just a sitcom celeb). She will never be an actress. But she has the nose. She shouldnt say Barbra and I but Her nose and my nose. Period.
    3) There is nothing in Jen’s life than can put her in the cathegory of Reinassance women. Why is her mentioning it? Wake up, Jen, you are a pathetic middle aged body with a scaring face, you have no professional achievement in your resume, you have a private life that no normal woman would like to experience, you are a role model just for workout fanatics and greedy people that think that a rich bank acc and a nice as. are enough to be happy and fulfilled..
    4) being director and interior designer are serious jobs. No kidding. You cannot define yourself a director just because you have met some during your not enviable acting career. And you cannot define yourself an interior designer just because once you had been mariied to a wannabe architect. It’s offensive for all the talented directors and designers who are spending their entire life trying to be professional and prepared
    in their job. It’s like calling yourself an actress when you are just a d-list sitcom celeb.
    5) finelly, don’t even try to pretend this homage to Barbra its your own idea. You have been asked by the magazine. And this just because of you nose. End of the story.

    Amazing interpretation! Aniston captured well the essence of Barbra Streisand. I agree that they two are forefront women of their time. Aniston’s hair and face are very pretty! Her face is gorgeous!

    @pattycakes: Hey you, fake Pattycakes. STFU. Get your own moniker.

    Jennifer looks awful here. She couldn’t have picked a better person to make her look more pathetic.

    Marie Says:

    Wow, Jennifer finally takes a risk and breaks out of her Rachel/ California girl branding she’s so carefully fed and protected. Im REALLY IMPRESSED. Why didnt she do this along time ago? The pictures are stunning but in a very unique way. Big Kudos to Jen and her team for doing this type of photo shoot…and please do more!

    Melissa Says:

    Lover her. I hate that ppl don’t have a good view of her anymore and she did absolutely nothing wrong. Nothing. She is beautiful and sweet and funny. She seems to be a very graceful woman who has handled the past 5/6 years…well gracefully. I would have had a nervous breakdown already. Go Jen!

    this is the first time i have ever left comment about anyone on this site…i had to rub my eyes in disbelief..Jennifer Aniston talking as if she has so much in common with Barbra Striesand..the delusion and lack of humility is breathtaking..never in a million years, a million lifetimes could these two be mentioned in the same breath as being similar in any way shape or form… the things that she said and the position she alludes to are embarrassing her beyond anything she has ever said and done before. I’m actually cringing for with a shred of humility would compare themselves in any way to someone of Striesands calibre.

    Marie Says:

    BTW not everyone’s idea of beauty is the blond, stick thin, showing off her practiced poses and smile showing off her teeth whitening, botox, cheek and breast implants etc. Im glad there are still actresses who are not giving into this look a like craze and maintaining the integrity of thier unique looks as they get older. I think Babs is still one of the most beautiful women, and yes, not to mention insanely talented and intelligent!

    African Girl Says:

    Lmao @ JA’s reasons for looking up to BS. . .
    “She talked to me about directing, we both like interior designs”
    Rotflmao. . . .How old is this woman? Seriously, I half expect her to continue with “And we both walk walks, think thoughts, take breaths but most importantly we both eat.”
    My God! She is DENSE!!!
    And what is with the bursting if she doesn’t direct another movie soon crap? She co-directed a 15 minute movie for Avon and she’s acts like it was an Epic movie. Silly twit….Lol.

    Beth Says:

    Oh brother, I used to like this woman but I am so tired of her and am over it. I have friends who feel the same way. First, the pic goes to show that without her signature look (Rachel hair, anyone?) she is ordinary, I always wondered why she can’t change her stupid hair style. Second, she has been “put” into the spotlight? She has to “overcome”? WHAT???? She loves the spotlight, why else would she be NAKED every other week? If you are avoiding the spotlight, you don’t pose naked for the entire world to see. Is anyone really buying this? And what has she overcome, the $30m she makes every year? What a bunch of crap. I have gone from thinking she was cute and fun to thinking she is a manipulative complainer. UGH.
