Aniston channels her inner Streisand

There are Barbra Streisand fans, and then there's Jennifer Aniston .

Aniston re-creates iconic portraits of Streisand in a lavish Mark Seliger photo spread in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar. The magazine is on newsstands this week.

"The shoot was just fun," the 41-year-old actress said Saturday while promoting her new film, "The Switch."

"Look, you're dressing up in wigs and costumes and going into this beautiful theater in downtown Los Angeles, and her voice is booming through the speakers," she said. "And you get chills."

Her fascination reaches beyond Streisand's look.

"I want to sing like Barbra!" she joked.

And like Streisand, Aniston wants to direct. She got a taste of behind-the-camera work directing the 2006 short "Room 10."

"I really am champing at the bit to do that next. It was so creatively fulfilling. And I'm ready to do something else. It's time to sort of explore, and I love this (acting). I'll never stop doing this until people say, 'Stop!' And maybe even then I won't stop," she said with a laugh.

Stewart, 65, to be a dad again

Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster have announced they are expecting their second child — and the 65-year-old rocker's seventh.

The couple said in a statement Monday that they learned the "happy news" in June as they celebrated their third wedding anniversary.

Stewart and 39-year-old Lancaster have been a couple for a decade and have a 4-year-old son, Alastair.

The Rock and Rock Hall of Famer also has five children from previous relationships.

The couple said they were "thrilled and delighted to be able to tell Alastair that he was going to be the big brother to a little baby, expected just before Mummy's 40th birthday."
