Jennifer Aniston stole money from her mother as a kid

Jennifer Aniston stole money from her mother's purse as a child.

The 47-year-old beauty has revealed she used to steal cash from her actress mother Nancy Dow to spend on video games and at the local arcade with her friends.

Asked to name the worst thing she did as a child that she hid from her parents, Jennifer shared: "I don't know ... taking money from her purse, maybe a dollar. I don't think I would steal large sums of cash.

"A dollar went a long way when we were kids. It was for video games, the arcade, nothing serious."

Meanwhile, Jennifer claimed to have inherited her sense of humour from Nancy and her dad John, who was also an actor.

She told HELLO! magazine: "She had a great sense of humour. And my dad."

However, Jennifer also admitted to inheriting one less-then-helpful trait from her mother.

The 'Friends' actress - who married the movie director Justin Theroux last year - shared: "I'm a nervous driver. When I would drive she would always scream ... maybe because I wasn't a good driver."

Jennifer's confession comes shortly after she was crowned the World's Most Beautiful Woman of 2016 by PEOPLE magazine, beating off competition from previous winners Julia Roberts, Cindy Crawford and Courteney Cox to claim the accolade.

On her win, Jennifer said: "It's funny, it's a really quick transition from not a care and now all of a sudden, we've got to really be mindful of what we put inside our bodies.

"And how we sleep and take care of ourselves. You can get away with a lot in your 20s."
