I like it, but it would have been more convincing with her old nose... ; )

Overreach. They should have just redone the "What's Up, Doc?" shots and left it at that.
Aniston can almost pull off those looks.

I do NOT like it at all. What's the point? It is obvious she lacks (totally) Barbra's attitude. There is no charisma, strengh, power in these pics. No point at all.

They are OK, but she really needs a prosthetic nose to pull it off.

Aniston is attractive, but has NONE of Streisands gravitas..Especially in the photo remakes here of the early years... I'm not feeling it.

This succeeds completely... at proving just how brilliant and impeccable Barbra actually was at handling her own unique aesthetic appeal. Aniston, an obviously more conventional beauty, fails utterly. It's an embarrassment.

so a woman who remade her nose to appeal to a conventional concept of beauty is trying to pass as a woman who stood her ground and became famous for NOT changing her nose. WTF? I think Gaga wouldve been a better Barbra. Her looks are unconventional, the gays love her and she's her own woman.

All success is always limited.

would've been better with her old nose, but i think she pulls it off well. i almost did a double-take with the cover picture.

Cover picture is better than inside shot but distracting nose is distracting.
I'm so tired of Jennifer Peniston! She's not hot and she has no talent. Why do people like her?

There have been many times when I have glanced Jennifer Aniston on the cover of magazines and have had to do a double-take because I thought it was Barbra. I think she looks less like Barbra here than when she wasn't doing it intentionally. No, she doesn't have Barbra's je ne sais quoi; but, I think it's cool nonetheless. And it's okay to pay tribute to someone even if it is not a perfect likeness.

I think it's a beautiful photo.

Dizzy Spins makes a good point, but I like the photos. And I DID do a double-take on the cover. As far as Jack M's question, as a film actress she hasn't offered anything but serviceable rom-com's. However, as a TV actress, she has been an adept comedienne. And, somehow, people have confused her small screen abilities with whatever she does on film. It's easy to tear her down as talentless, because she's conventionally pretty to most, she can't sing or dance and she hasn't displayed any major dramatic talent. But, the fact of the matter is, for whatever reason, she can open a film. And that's rare for a female actor, as well as any actor these days. So, it's not like she doesn't earn her keep in Hollywood.

I love both women and frankly they both pull off the looks in my opinion.

this is a long time coming -- it would be a great bio pic -- with someone to sing her vocal parts -- a better photog/DP would have worked out the problems here (some are styling) --- I think people want a Barbra bio pic -- but not directed by her and hopefully with a long legal battle (which is why most producers have stayed away from it) -- might need to wait til BS is planted!

I'll probably be in the minority here, but I like Jennifer Aniston
I think the cover shot is the better of the two - I like it

She looks like Arlene Martel from the 'Star Trek' episode, "Amok Time".
She was Spock's pon farr mate.
LOVE the pics! Jennifer Aniston rocks. I love her (even if she is an uber bitch).

there is something so appealing about jennifer aniston. i'm sorry, but her delivery of certain lines in 'friends' is still too good to this day. her "rachel" is as good as meryl streep's "miranda priestly". and yes, she can open a film -- that's a big deal in and of itself.
