The former Friends actress has been desperate to step behind the camera ever since she directed low-key short film Room 10 in 2006.
Aniston, who has posed as Streisand for a new magazine shoot, admits she has always looked up to the Funny Girl star, and she took the chance to talk to her about her own career when they last met.
She tells Harper's Bazaar magazine, "(Streisand) was wonderful, and you could talk to her about anything... I had a long conversation with Barbra about directing because I directed a short a couple (of) years ago, and if I don't do it again soon, I'm going to burst out of my skin."
Aniston said: "I have a project in development I'm going to direct. After you get enough movies under your belt you sit back and go, 'What's next?' It's getting to a time where creatively I want to turn in a different direction." This isn't her first buzzed-about stab at directing.

It was a decent piece, and definitely preferable to many of Aniston's big-screen choices.
The former Friends star is hoping for a career "rebirth" in Hollywood, inspired by Drew Barrymore's directorial efforts - and she is already working on a top secret movie.
She says, "I have a project in development I'm going to direct. After you get enough movies under your belt you sit back and go, 'What's next?' It's getting to a time where creatively I want to turn in a different direction."
The project won't be Aniston's first shot at moviemaking - she co-directed 2006 short film Room 10, which starred Robin Wright and Kris Kristofferson.
The sentencing of Gerald and Patricia Green for bribing a Thai government official, in exchange for lucrative Bangkok International Film Festival business contracts, was postponed Thursday. The next hearing date is March 11.
Room 10 of the Federal Courthouse had filled early this morning with the Greens’ supporters, who had possibly glimpsed an omen when three shackled prisoners were brought in for another case’s hearing, their chains clanking, Jacob Marley-style. The t...
