Jennifer Aniston has revealed a surprising taste in comedy – naming Benny Hill among her favourites.

The former Friends star said she was a big fan of British comedians including 1970s icon Hill.

“I so love the British sense of humour – I was obsessed with Benny Hill and Monty Python as a child. Oh my God, and I am so hooked on Ricky Gervais,” she told Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

Jen also insisted she kept her looks without the help of surgery or Botox.

“I could do it (Botox), and I mean these lines are getting deeper every day, but when I tell you what’s happened to me – these lines are just about living,” she said.

Jennifer joked she would be ‘devastated’ if someone told her to stop drinking coffee and wine.

She said: “Look, I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don’t starve myself in an extremist way. You’re not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I’d be devastated.”
