The 39-year-old former Friends actress – whose father John was born on the island of Crete – will travel to Greece this summer in a bid to get in touch with her roots.

A source said: “She can’t wait to go back and see where her ancestors lived, and learn about her heritage.

“She has always wanted to go on the trip and wants to do it before she turns 40 next year.”

Jennifer – whose family name is Anastassakis – is even believed to have bought a DVD to help her learn the language before she travels to the European country.

The Hollywood star has previously credited her family with helping her deal with fame.

She said: “There’s a warmth to my family and Greeks in general. They have always helped me to keep things real.

“My grandmother was always the centre of the family. I would love to be that figure. The grandmother of the family, the godfather of the clan.”
