Babs likes it! She really likes it!
Here's what Barbra Streisand had to say about Jennifer Aniston's pictorial homage:
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.
And, speaking of Barbra, here's what playwright/activist Larry Kramer has to say about her recent statement on the overturn of Prop 8:
Barbra Streisand is a hypocrite. If she had made my play about aids, The Normal Heart, in 1976, when she first acquired the rights, only to sit on them for a full ten years without filming it, she could have done something for gay rights when we were really in the sewer of death. But no, she chose to go off and make such vitally important and classic movies as Nuts and The Mirror Has Two Faces. Barbra Streisand cares about gay rights as much as i care about spending a zillion dollars decorating a colony of houses in Malibu. As the mother of a son who is not only gay but hiv positive, she should be ashamed of herself.
Fortunately and at last, an exciting movie version is now being prepared by openly gay director-producer Ryan Murphy to star Mark Ruffalo. i hope it will prove that the best thing that happened for The Normal Heart is that Barbra Streisand didn't make it.
I think it is important for all her many gay fans around the world, which certainly had once included me, to know the above.
Hmmm... Is this considered blasphemous in the gay religion? Jennifer Aniston (who you might remember from a 90s TV show called Friends) has channeled Barbra Streisand for a Harper's Bizarre photo editorial.
Lea Michele, possibly, but Jennifer Aniston?
