Jennifer Aniston wants to move to New York.

The 'Just Go With It' actress - who has recently been spotted looking at a $15 million West Village condominium apartment - misses the city where she spent a lot of her childhood and attended acting school and has decided the time is right for her to return.

In an interview on TV show 'Good Morning America', she said: "I've been looking and looking and looking. I grew up here (New York City). I miss it."

"There is nothing like being in the city that is just the city of Everyman. It's all walks of life - I love that!"

The 41-year-old former 'Friends' star - who currently lives in Beverley Hills, California - has revealed her decision to move "back home" came to her in the middle of a night, when she woke up and decided she needs to "simplify" her life.

She said: "This summer I woke up in the middle of the night in London, and I couldn't sleep, and I knew I really needed to simplify my life. And along with that came the thought, 'I should sell my house'. I was like, 'Wait, I just built it; it was like my heart, my project, my love,' but I had the realisation that it is just too much for me. I'm not this person.

"I'm looking for little spots in New York City to go back home. There are all sorts of things that are going to be happening in the near future, so I'm excited. I don't know what they are, but that's the fun part."
