A Star Is Reborn: Jennifer Aniston Recreates Barbra Streisand Looks

August 4th, 2010 // 3 Comments

In the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands August 17, Jennifer Aniston recreates some of the most iconic images of Barbra Streisand‘s career, portraying scenes from Funny Girl, What’s Up, Doc?, and more. Here are the highlights:
On being a funny girl:
“People laugh at me. Sometimes I know why, and sometimes I don’t. But I can pretty much find humor in anything. That is a necessary part of life. I don’t want to say laughter is healing, because it sounds corny, but it’s a release.”
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.”
Check out the gallery of the images and a behind the scenes video after the jump!

    NOT EVEN CLOSE. Jenn always tries TOO HARD and once again she fails. Always the victim. Always the whiner.
