If you ever wondered about Jennifer Anistons Jewish connection, alas, here it is: The sitcom star turned screen queen portrays Barbra Streisand in a special photo tribute to the legendary diva in the September issue of Harpers Bazaar.
If, like me, youre thinking, wow, those brilliant magazine editors couldnt possibly have chosen anyone better to represent the original Funny Girl, youll be glad to know that Babs herself agrees. In a statement on her Web site, Streisand pointed out how apt the choice was:
I was very flattered that Jennifer Aniston chose to interpret my style with the photos in Harpers Bazaar. Shes a delightful person, and I think she did a wonderful job, Streisand wrote. If only she had a bump on her nose.
