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 has an uglyyyyyyyyyyy face…her old movies r better than anything she done in the past few years…1 red box is all willing to pay to watch them stop trying to hard, you aint got it woman.

  • poor haters

    they are so desperate and ridiculous… poor angie… what a pathetic fans she has… fortunately not all are haters!

  • Change

    She looks more like Celine Dionne. Barbara never had a nose job – Jennifer is ashamed of her ethnicity.

    Why isn’t she shouting and supporting the Mexicans now when they need her in Arizona. Or helping the Greeks who are losing their jobs.

    I wish someone would give her a real interview ask about her plastic surgery and botox – she is never ever honest about herself in interviews – they would not get an interview if they asked her real questions.

  • poor haters

    @Change: she always is honesty about plastic surgery!! your hate makes you delusional!!! why dont you support those people you mentioned???? stop saying what jen has to do and do it yourself!!! people dont ask for others clebrities to do charity, why they command jen to do??? charity is something you give or receive, not something you compel!!! FYI jolie also did a plastic surgery on her nose!!!! is she ashamed of her ethnicity???

  • poor haters

    @WOW: thanks!!! =)

  • Change

    She actually went to Mexico with Gerard a few months ago to support Mexico and gave interviews about it. Now she is silent – why doesn’t she support mexicans now! She always says how she loves mexican food and supports tourism in the country (she own property there) but does not seem to care for the people.

    I do not hate her I think she is good at making the most of what she has. What I hate is her insecurity and self-obession and refuses to to be open and honest in interviews unlike Courtney Cox. Why doesn’t she invite her mother to her film premiere. Why doesn’t anyone ask her when she last saw her mother. She always gets an easy ride by the press.

    This has nothing to do with Angelina Jolie who is very open about her past and her life since her childhood. As for her nose it looks the same to me from Hackers film when did she have surgery – her nose looks just like her dads. If Angelina was so vain she would never have those awful tattoos.

    @poor haters: NO HONNEY, WE ARE HERE BECOUSE IS SO FUN READ “YOUR” COMMENTS AND HOW DESPERATE AND RIDICULOUS THEY ARE, AND OF CURSE WE WANT TO PAY THE VISIT YOU GUYS MAKE TO BRAD AND ANGELINA TREATS.

    @Reality Check: for sure! it is ok the loons have stop their idol from having a number 1 movie – not even for a day in over 2 weeks! with their hate – in order to make the same percentage that jen made in the us with bounty hunter jolie will need to make 175 million – in the us let’s keep watching. they love to hate – however the bottom $ line – is different! i don’t go on angelina site because i don’t have anything to say – sometimes i comment on her children positive. i had my sister visit this site a couple months ago and after that she has really become a jen fan – her daughter in law wanted her to go see salt – she told her she would go see inceptions, toystore or the dinner with the schmucks – but wouldn’t go support jolie – and that is the truth. that is what the loons hate is doing! i wish both ladies well and would hate for anything to happen to them. we are accountable for our words. most people on this site are adults and it is really sad at how spiteful and hateful they can be. i understand supporting your star/idol however hating and being mean to another human being because you are behind a computer? taking and twisting words that are written in the article to satisfy you hate. reeven, no it is sad that we have so much hate and nasty comments to say about a person we have never had a conversation with. why? i don’t understand – i don’t believe we were taught that it is ok or that we would want our love one to hear or be written about the way some have.

  • for real

    @well: Jen didn’t insult Barb or Judy fans! it is a honor when some one plays homage to you – not an insult.

  • for real

    @Change: jennifer was opened a about her nose jobs! lots of people have things done and don’t want to talk about it – that doesn’t make them bad – jolie had two nose jobs – that doesn’t make her bad that she hasn’t had an interview about her nose job or does it in your book? not in mine. share what you want and keep what you don’t want to share however must likely the media will take a part of a story and run with it. or haters will find another way to hate.

  • veronica

    she looks great! jen is a nice artist! the pics are wonderful! I don’t know why people say her chin is ugly. I think his beautiful! actually jen’s face is gorgeous!

  • ellie’

    Not one person made Jennifer Aniston a rich star …she did it all on her own…and it seems all these magazines love this A-List actress or she wouldn’t be on one cover..

  • tasha munro

    This just proves that without all that hair she is just UGLY!!! She also has really ugly hands!!!!!

  • nexttry

    Don’t try so hard. Try Iggy Pop, Jen. At least he’s one at your same level in the look department.

  • dd

    Okay – gotta tell all the Aniston & Jolie fans that there is comparison between the two. Aniston has beauty with the help of stylists (have we seen her without makeup? NO!) and is a B-list actress who has been promoted to A-list by the tabloids and because she was once married to Brad Pitt. Now Angie has beauty and brain. We’ve seen her without makeup and she is quite a natural beauty–in fact–breathtaking beauty. She is an A-list star with her work and has awards to show for it. It doesn’t matter if her movies shot up to number 1 or 2 or 3, but what matters is that her movies have substance. She is not married to Brad Pitt, but they proved that 5 years and so later they are still together with 3 biological children and 3 adopted. Go figure.

  • arie

    very ugly…………………..yes as usual

  • pommes frites

    @OLYMPIA DUKAKIS LOOKALIKE: She did not alter her nose because she was afraid it would affect her voice and has admitted as much.

  • charlaine

    @Reality Check:

    PLease Stop..YOu making a fool of yourself like your loony idol Jen.
    Jen isn’t babs..
    IS Jen an Oscar winner?
    NO..
    Is Jen a talented singer?
    NO
    Jen is a wanna be..Soon fading from whatever fame she has..She is more famous for her flops than hits..
    Work harder..And ask jen for more pay..Cause you fail..
    You fail to make Jen some big star that she isn’t.
    Jen and her fake ass barren self is Over..
    The reason why people laugh at Jen is because she is a JOKE!
    Babs is a star..A real Star worthy of the fame she has..
    Please do not compare your whorey idol Jen to a classy woman as Babs..
    Babs don’t need to get naked to get attention of for Money..
    One concert and Babs is rich for life..Unlike Jen..who has to sell perfume and Water to live.

  • WHY?

    why can’t jen make headlines on her own? why does she have to be connected to someone famous in order to get any notice? so instead of posing naked on a beach somewhere cuz people are finally catching onto this fraud, she pulls this? this is the new strategy…pose like an a-list and maybe get a-list attention? is this the best she can do? i smell desperation…

  • because

    She should have named her perfume “Desperation”.

  • Iris

    i lover her

  • itziar

  • Barbra Streisand responds!

    “I was very flattered that Jennifer Aniston chose to interpret my style with the photos in Harper’s Bazaar. She’s a delightful person, and I think she did a wonderful job. If only she had a bump on her nose.”

  • Maddox

    @Barbra Streisand responds!:

    what she really means “if only she hadn’t gotten her nose fixed Twice to blame it on a “deviated septum” and accepted herself for who she was”

  • true

    Who she will clinge to next? Man can’t get attention with the things that is his. He has to clinge to somone A lister.

  • annieisnotokaymichael

    This woman is not pretty and anyone who says she is a a liar

  • Marieme

    Thank you for the link, Maddox! #178

    That was thoroughly enjoyable!

  • ellie’

    @delusionalCHINnifer:
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I really don’t care what you say about Jennifer.. but i must say.how childish you can’t even write her name…but you probably are a child..

  • truth is

    base on the pictures above, you can tell who has the longer chin. Yep! Jen is the winner. Before, i thought it was Barbara, now it’s obvious it’s Jen.

  • trinilady

    why the ‘pained’ look ?

  • Potira

    Fabulous!!!

  • Fan

    do you think that becuse the other woman’s name been attached to cleopatra or liz taylor, the jen has to attach hers to barbara, man so soo soo predictable – grow up

  • Fan

    surprisingly, no n-ude pics, what did you have for b/fast when you did the shooting. keep it up

  • for sure

    way to think outside the box Jen! beautiful! sweet to pay homage to Babs!

  • hate never wins

    @gem15: to bad you can’t read and comprehend! homage isn’t the same as i am this person – it is honoring. loons need to go back to school and start with reading 101. also, to wrote, i’ll give jennifer her money – no you didn’t she earned her money! you gave nothing – she doesn’t need your credit to say that she earned her money! lol! the reason loons keep bringing up the divorce is why? jennifer hasn’t – that is the only reason you can hate and that reason isn’t even real – jen was the wife! loons are so into hate they don’t see how their hate hurts their own idol. barbara thought so much of the photos that she put them on HER site. – if she wasn’t honored she would have acknowledged and moved on – however Barbara put them on her SITE – SIDE BY SIDE! – two classy ladies!

  • town pump

    @Change: lol! having tats has nothing to do with being vain or not! are you for real! it is a where you are at in your own head! like sandra’s ex jesse and his girls! a lot of time it has to do with rebelling! angelina comes across as being vain, fake, having to be #1 even when is comes to promoting her movies – making her children go to asia where all they did was fly, walk through the airport for mom’s image, go to the hotel, swim while mom was out at premiers and the next day do the same thing! all for their mother’s image. that is a vain person! the last day shiloh looked exhausted no 4 and 5 year olds should have to work like that! bet she didn’t even pay them.

  • move on

    @dd: we don’t care about angelina! don’t care that angelina and brad are together! move on is a hard thing for loons to do! this article is about jennifer paying a homage – and you are too immature to move forward and see the beautiful art!

  • sad

    @Fan: i sure hope brangelina is paying you! lamo! you spend your life on these threads hating!

  • mY TURN

    Jen needs to get a life and get over it!! well I guess I wouldn’t either i fail to give my own husband a kid that he wanted and he was an A list actor wait a minute she was stupid ass hell LOL

  • Fan

    @sad:
