Jennifer Aniston admits she's often the butt of jokes.

"People laugh at me. Sometimes I know why, and sometimes I don't," the 41-year-old actress tells the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, in which she channels 68-year-old Barbra Streisand's iconic poses from "Funny Girl" and "What's Up, Doc?"

Continues Aniston, "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.”

Aniston compares herself to Streisand.

"[Barbra and I] are people who have been put in the spotlight, for better or for worse, and you just keep riding, and you keep overcoming," she says.

"Barbra inspires me because there isn't anything she hasn't done that she wanted to do, especially as a female in the time when her generation was prime. She's a true renais­sance woman... I had a long conversation with Barbra about directing because I directed a short a couple years ago, and if I don't do it again soon, I'm going to burst out of my skin. And we also love interior design."

"You don't have to stop at one thing. You can do it all if you want to," Aniston goes on.
