It is not an expensive make-up artist or the best Hollywood stylists that make Jennifer Aniston look young at 45. As the Friends star admitted in her recent interview – it is her Greek heritage to blame.

Jennifer Aniston revealed a lot in her interview with Yahoo Beauty editor Bobbi Brown – including her weight, and secrets about her hair, staying youthful looking and even what she’s eating.

The actress, daughter of the 81-year-old John Aniston, best known for his long-running role of Victor Kiriakis on the soap Days of Our Lives, revealed that her Greek DNA is a big part of the secret.

Revealing her secret of young looks, Aniston said:

“My dad is 100 per cent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither did my grandmother, who was 95 when she died.”

Taking a page from the well-known Greek expression “everything in moderation”, Aniston also added, regarding a question about her eating habits, “I have a Greek salad in front of me, but I also indulge. Oh my god, there’s a balance.”
