Jennifer Aniston wants to open a restaurant. The “Marley and Me” actress has wowed friends with her culinary skills and they are now encouraging her to launch a new business venture so she can share her skills with others. A source said, “Jennifer is really passionate about cooking. She recently had a new kitchen fitted and she has been using it to the max. She is an awesome cook. She does everything from Mexican meals to cute cupcakes and delicious pasta. She does use cookbooks but mainly they are her own creations. There’s never been a mediocre meal and everyone says she should open her own restaurant. She said she would love to.”

Jennifer would not be the first celebrity to launch her own eatery. In 2008, Eva Longoria launched Beso, a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles which has become a hit with other famous faces, including pal Victoria Beckham. Jennifer Lopez opened Madres in California in 2002, but it closed down last summer.

“SexyBack” singer Justin Timberlake owns two New York eateries, Southern Hospitality, featuring food inspired by his Tennessee childhood, and upmarket Italian restaurant Destino. He also previously owned Chi, a dim sum bar in Hollywood. Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, and Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, are among other stars who have also ventured into the restaurant business.
