Barbra Comments on Jennifer Aniston Photo Shoot

Jennifer Aniston paid homage to Barbra in a photo shoot that is featured in this month's Harper's Bazaar magazine -- and here's what Barbra said about the photos:

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.

Comments for this News article

one of my favorite stills of this special lady...

Don't understand the negative comments regarding this. If Jennifer wants to look like Barbra I believe she did a good job.

All the best!

okay look at both pictures. lets just point out that first of all, Barbra is the most beautiful person on planet earth and then i'll say my opinion, which is, that Jennifer Aniston is ugly, sure she has a good body, but she's had plastic surgerey. she's been pulled and stitched like a quilt. Barbra is a natural beauty. i think it was kind of pathetic that Jennifer did it. why even try to compare to a legend. and it's creepy that you would do it while the person is still living!
that's my opinion.

Jen looks ok, but then look at Barbra's picture....no comparison. There is No substitute. Barbra has that "it" factor whatever that is. Barbra's picture moves you, whereas Jen's doesn't. I have always thought she (Barbra) was, and is still beautiful. Plus, the whole "homage" thing when I saw it then just seemed a little creepy- I don't know why. I mean, I understand why they did it, but it just felt a little creepy looking at it. Like someone said.."Barbra is STILL here!"
(and will be for a long time!)

I think Jennifer Aniston's copy of Barbra Streisand's attire and pose only show the beauty of both women. My favorite Streisand photos are on her CLASSICAL BARBRA album because it demonstrates her exotic beauty and classical features. I would love to see Ms. Stresand wearing some of the similar makeup and style she displayed in her earlier career because I find her to be one of the most beautiful women in the world. She's not just a FUNNY GIRL, but BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS LADY! Love to you Barbara!

Ms. Aniston did do a beautiful job portraying the classic elegance of Ms. Streisand. The cover and first article photo are my personal favorites...they are without a doubt pure Streisand!

You, Barbra are uniquely beautiful! No one can compare.

I just can't wait to purchase this album! I have been waiting and waiting and now the album is out! I am going to one of LIGHTS shows so I hope she plays all my favorite songs... This album is gonna be amazing! I have listened to some of the songs from this album on YouTube... I was seriously impressed!

Barbra, I have been a sincere fan of yours for as long as I can remember. There was always something about you that touched my heart so. I could always see the vulnerability in your eyes shining through your incredible talent. I've saw you in concert several years ago in Anaheim, Ca. When the overture started I remember that the place was vibrating with excitement and when you walked out tears of emotion fell from eyes. I've always felt that I knew you somehow. I too am a Brooklyn girl. I understood your childhood, I just never had either the talent or the drive you had. And thank God you had it! I've never had the chance or the place to say it, and I suppose it's kind of silly coming from someone 66 years old but I just want to say I absolutely love you. Funny Girl, The Owl and the Pussycat, Hello Dolly, What's Up Doc and so many more movies that I watch over and over. THere is no one else like you. No one. So while it may be Jennifer Aniston's way of paying tribute to you, I think it's pretty silly and lackluster. There is only one Barbra Streisand, just like there is only one Frank Sinatra, one Cary Grant, one Judy Garland. I think Jennifer's pictures are a very poor imitation. I don't see that they look like you at all but I am not a Jennifer Aniston fan to begin with. Thank you for all the wonderful, funny, emotional, heartwrenching, unique and absolutely heartfelt entertainment you given to all of us who love you. I hope you will make some more comedies. No one is funny in the same way you are. I never miss an interview you are doing (caught you on Sunday morning) and everytime I see you, I think I wish I could tell you that I see how special you are. I wish I had the opportunity to meet you.
So, no I'm not at all interested in the Jennifer's "look a like" pictures. There is only one you - poor substitutions just won't do. I wish you all the best always Natasha.

I don't understand this kind of homage.

It's as if you are walking thirsty through a desert, suddenly you see an oasis in the distance and when you are reaching it you discover that it was just a hallucination.

Years ago when I first saw Jennifer on "Friends" -- I thought for sure she could play Barbra in a bio as she had the "look" -- no one believed me -- Jennifer did a wonderful job portraying her idol -- Barbra must be proud!

It scares me to say this but I have been a Streisand fan for nearly 50 years. My dear lady, you have held up much better than I have. Early in my career as a commercial artist I sent you a drawing I did of you and your new baby, Jason. You sent me a gracious letter thanking me and encouraging me to stick with it. I did and have had a great ride in the Art field. I love Jennifer Aniston and think she is a wonderful actress but there is no comparison. Your youthful beauty was special and timeless and there will never be anyone with those incredible eyes. I first saw you in person at the Central Park Concert and I have to say that my friends had to drag me out of the park hours after it was over because I was mesmerized by the sounds I heard. I saw you again in Las Vegas with Il Divo and the concert that many years later was still fantastic!
This is a fan just saying thank you for opening up a whole new sound to my ears and for
all the wonderful movies. From Funny Girl to Mirror has Two Faces, you have entertained us with your singing and great acting. Thanks for the ride, Babs!

I have been a fan of yours since I was a little girl looking and listening to you on a newly acquired TV singing 'I'm 5, I'm 5 ...' and immediately fell in love with the beauty of your voice. I have followed your career since then, loving the way you take words and mould them into pictures with such mastery like plasticine.Loved the contentious issues you took a stance on in such films as 'Nuts' and 'Yentl' (Papa can your hear me .... the forest ...my goodness, unforgettable. Your comedic roleseg. 'On A Clear Day' Romantic 'Funny Girl' and 'Funny Lady'. I think my favourite of all was 'A Star is Born'. Every single song in that movie was a showstopper. 'With one more look at you' slowly sliding into 'Are you watching me know!' The moment when you are straddling Kris Kristofferson's character insisting that you hate him ,,, quite stunning! Favourite song of all. Hmmm, difficult to answer, but 'People' probably wins out!

To Jennifer Anniston. Always thought she had a look of you. And as lovely as she is, I'm afraid she doesn't possess your magnetism or depth. (And of course, that is only my personal opinion!) Women should never be afraid to tell other women how wonderful they are, beautiful, sexy, intelligent etc ...etc. Everyone possesses a gift. It could be their voice, the fact that they bake just about the best darn chocolate cake ever, or perhaps more importantly, the gift of just making another human being feel 10 feet tall. I think you are inspirational in so many ways! Thank you for the beauty of your artistry, the stance you take on matters that are important to you.

I am just so excited and delighted to e able to comment on your blog. This is amazing for. fans like me. I have a blogspot and don't for one moment think you would have time to check it out, but going to include on the off chance. I am also going to attach a short story that I am turning into a movie - 'The Alchemist of Allihies'. Allihies is a relatively small place in South West of Ireland. Wishing you continued success and good health. Thanks again for so many years of pleasure and spine-tingling moments!

Maureen.

Strange that Harpers did not want to put me on the cover when I tried my very best to look like Barbra from 1962-1970! Even went to NY to get my hair cut like like this cut!Hair cuts, make up, vintage clothes...... loved that Funny Girl. lololol I even invited you to my high school graduation! I still know the words, inflection and tunes to all your songs. No one sings Happy Days or When the Sun Comes Out like you. Thank you for the joy you gave to me as a young woman and that you continue to give to me and the world. You are a great role model for women.

I just can't wait to purchase this album! I have been waiting and waiting and now the album is out! I am going to one of LIGHTS shows so I hope she plays all my favorite songs... This album is gonna be amazing! I have listened to some of the songs from this album on YouTube... I was seriously impressed!

When I first started watching Friends I thought, "That girl could play Barbra in a bio-pic!" How great would it be to see Barbra's early career and behind the scenes brought to life?

Jennifer's photo is nice, but there is a depth, power, beauty, and soul in Barbra's photo that cannot be matched. Every time I look at this photo of Barbra her eyes seem to tell a different story, which is just a part of the magic that is Barbra Streisand. Barbra you are entrancing and you had me at "Hello Gorgeous"

I am not sure if this is the right place to talk about this, but....
my mom Pattie Pecikonis and my Aunt Margey Pecikonis would wait at a bus stop in Brooklyn to go to school and Barbra was one of the people they would talk to everyday and get on the bus with (sorry for the poor grammar). Mom and Aunt Margey are gone now, but I always wanted to know if Barbra remembered this? I am including a pic from about that time to maybe spark her memory. Mom is in the lower right hand corner and Aunt Margey is just above her.

Barbra, Dear

They may try to dress up and look like you, but there is only one you! The others need to stop while they are ahead, but it does cause us to look back and remember how special your were when you first came on the scene. No one like you then and no one like you now; in a class all your own.

Jennifer has pretty legs and that's it, no talent, plain looks, horsey face and can't act, if I were Barbara I would be insulted. I definately will not be buying the mag this month if that's all you can come with. Barbara is a one of a kind beauty that is not replaceable or reproducible by anyone especially not Aniston. Needless to say the pictures of her do not look anything like Barbara.

Doesn't this seem a little blasphemous to anyone else? Nothing against Jennifer Aniston- it's just that NOBODY should play homage to Babs by imitating her still shots. Like hello, it's okay with Marilyn Monroe or something b/c she's deceased. But Barbra's still HERE so it seems odd. Could Harper's please just photograph Herself instead of imitations?

This is the longest love affair I've ever had- 19 years and counting... and I'm only 31. I think I watch Yentl like once a month. I LOVE THIS WOMAN!!!!!

That What's Up Doc? scene is one of my favorite Barbra moments of all time- I still get chills!

Jennifer Aniston looked amazing in these photos and I was happy to see she paid homage to you Barbara because your my idol, I love your music and love watching movies your in.

You truly are an idol Smiling

Jennifer is a beautiful woman, but she just can't top you. You have a very exotic look and you also have beautiful eyes. I have liked you since I was 16 when I heard you for the very first time singing "People", I've bought every album you made and if I didn't buy it my daughter would give me one for birthdays or the holidays.
You are still beautiful and I will always be a devoted fan.

What an honor for Jennifer Aniston. Barbra is the best! However, I've seen other pictures and often thought wow does she resemble Barbra. Beautiful and I'm buying that issue!

Beautiful shot of Jennifer and love her, she is great, but...... there is only one "Barbara" and no one can compare.... Love you Barbra.

But what a bump.
