Streisand responded to Aniston's photo shoot on her website BarbraStreisand.com, writing: "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."

Aniston told Harper's Bazaar, "[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."

Aniston also relates to the comedy. "People laugh at me. Sometimes I know why, and sometimes I don't. But I can pretty much find humor in anything," she told the magazine. "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."
