The inspiration to pay homage to Streisand, whose songs Aniston sings in the shower, came from her longtime “hairstylist and friend.” (Is anyone’s hairstylist not her friend? That would be so sad.)

Jen and Babs have in common because they both love directing and interior decorating. “Also, we are people who have been put in the spotlight, for better or for worse, and you just keep riding, and you keep overcoming, and you just stay true to what you love to do,” said Aniston. SACRILEGE ALERT: Aniston would like to outfit Barbra Streisand in “jeans and a great wedge.”

Is Jen a better Babs than Lindsay was a Marilyn? And is anyone else getting more of a Julie Cooper/Jane in Mad Men vibe than either Barbra Streisand or Jennifer Aniston in the cover shot? There are so many first names in this paragraph I may pass out. Allow me to fan myself with my fingernails.
