Los Angeles There are Barbra Streisand fans, and then there’s Jennifer Aniston.
Aniston recreates iconic portraits of Streisand in a lavish Mark Seliger photo spread in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The magazine is on newsstands this week.
“The shoot was just fun,” the 41-year-old actress said Saturday while promoting her new film, “The Switch.”
“Look, you’re dressing up in wigs and costumes and going into this beautiful theater in downtown Los Angeles, and her voice is booming through the speakers,” she said. “And you get chills. It was almost like ... ’cause photo shoots I’m always uncomfortable in, because that sort of thing is not my career, it’s not my profession. So, it was sort of fun to kind of play a character like that.”
Her fascination reaches beyond Streisand’s look.
“I want to sing like Barbra!” she joked.
And like Streisand, Aniston wants to direct. She got a taste of behind-the-camera work directing the 2006 short “Room 10.”
“The Switch” will be released Aug. 20.
