Jennifer Aniston's dad offers her dating advice: Go Greek!



John Aniston’s advice for daughter Jennifer when it comes to love? Go back to your roots.
Greek men are sexier and make better boyfriends, the elder Aniston, 77, who was born Yannis Anastassakis in Crete, joked to People last weekend at the Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund's 20th Anniversary Gala in New York.

Asked if he'd be happy if Jen, 42, ended up with a Greek man, he replied, “Yes, I would be glad about that.” But he’d have to be a “good Greek man, Aniston added.

And what, exactly, does that entail? “Honesty,” he said.

We’re no matchmakers, but here are a few eligible Greek stars that might make papa Aniston a proud father-in-law.
John Stamos, 47
The most obvious choice. In fact, we’re kinda surprised the two never dated before.
Zach Galifinakis, 41
He’s a little goofy, but Jen did date Vince Vaughn once upon a time ...
Constantine Maroulis, 35
Yeah, the “Rock of Ages” star just became a dad, but he and his GF haven’t tied the knot ...
Mark Ballas, 24

The well-rounded “Dancing With the Stars” pro and singer is of partial Greek descent. And really cute.
