Barbra Streisand Flattered by Jennifer Aniston's Transformation

Originally posted 08/05/2010 06:40PM

Jennifer Aniston's amazing transformation into Barbra Streisand has caught the attention of none other than the Funny Girl herself.

"I was very flattered that Jennifer Aniston chose to interpret my style with the photos in Harper's Bazaar," Streisand, 68, says on her Web site.

So much so that the Oscar winner and Grammy-winning singer posted her own set of look-alike photos of the two stars, which shows them each lying on their sides with their heads resting on their left hand.

Aniston, 41, who paid homage to her idol in the fashion magazine's September issue, is "a delightful person," says Streisand. "I think she did a wonderful job."

Jennifer Aniston's Amazing Transformation into Barbra Streisand

Jennifer Aniston is one funny lady – but in a new photo shoot she's channeling Funny Girl star Barbra Streisand.

Aniston, who is a Streisand superfan, didn't need much convincing to dress up like one of her idols for the September issue of Harper's Bazaar.

In fact, San Fernando Valley-born Aniston, 41, who stars in the Aug. 20 movie release The Switch, was already intimately acquainted with the Brooklyn-born Oscar-, Grammy-, Emmy- and Tony-winning superstar, 68.

"[Barbra] was wonderful, and you could talk to her about anything," Aniston tells the magazine about meeting Streisand at a Hollywood party on New Year's Eve a few years ago.

Barbra Streisand Didn't Have a Doll, Couch Growing Up

Barbra Streisand is counted among Hollywood's royalty – but the singer is opening up about her humble beginnings.

"We never had a couch. We never had a living room," the singer/actress, who grew up living in a Brooklyn housing project, says in an interview set to air on CBS's Early Show Tuesday.

"We only had a dining room and then my grandmother and grandfather lived in one bedroom. My mother, my brother and I slept in another bedroom … Now, I love couches," says the star.

Another thing she lived without: "You know, I never had a doll – I had a hot water bottle," says Streisand.
