Jennifer Aniston loves knitting.

The 'Switch' actress was gifted a basket of wool and some special needles recently and is now making the most of her new hobby to create new items for her wardrobe.

She said: "I've been knitting a lot lately. My make-up artist gave me a basket of needles and yarn as a present and I just said, 'Alright, I can do this. I did it in school.' Now, I'm loving it.

"I've knitted a couple of hats and a couple of scarves and I'm starting on my first poncho."

As well as knitting, Jennifer, 41, also enjoys cooking and admits she feels insulted if people don't finish her culinary creations.

She added: "I'm half Greek, so I'm partial to Greek food.

"I remember the first time I was going to make my first Spanakopita - spinach pie - for Thanksgiving. My dad gave me my grandmother's recipe and eight hours later I was still baking! It was exhausting and then nobody ate it!

"Usually, if I serve people food, I make them finish it. That's a Greek characteristic."
