Jennifer Aniston as Babra StreisandJennifer Aniston poses as Barbra Streisand from 'Funny Girl' in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Aniston, who stars in the upcoming comedy 'The Switch,' talks about idolizing Streisand and meeting the legendary singer.

"I've loved her since I was a kid, and all of a sudden there she is, and she's just like someone you've always known," the former 'Friends' star says.

"You know when you meet people you idolize and then you walk away from the conversation thinking, 'Well, that was a disappointment; they were kinder and more fabulous in my mind'? Well, she was wonderful, and you could talk to her about anything."

Of what she's learned from Barbra, Aniston adds, "You don't have to stop at one thing. You can do it all if you want to."

And being a funny girl in her own right, Jen takes the good with the bad. "People laugh at me. Sometimes I know why, and sometimes I don't. But I can pretty much find humor in anything. That is a necessary part of life. I don't want to say laughter is healing, because it sounds corny, but it's a release."
