The `Switch` actress was gifted a basket of wool and some special needles recently and is now making the most of her new hobby to create new items for her wardrobe.
She said: "I`ve been knitting a lot lately. My make-up artist gave me a basket of needles and yarn as a present and I just said, `Alright, I can do this. I did it in school.` Now, I-m loving it.
"I`ve knitted a couple of hats and a couple of scarves and I-m starting on my first poncho."
As well as knitting, Jennifer, 41, also enjoys cooking and admits she feels insulted if people don-t finish her culinary creations.
She added: "I`m half Greek, so I`m partial to Greek food.
"I remember the first time I was going to make my first Spanakopita - spinach pie - for Thanksgiving. My dad gave me my grandmother`s recipe and eight hours later I was still baking! It was exhausting and then nobody ate it!
"Usually, if I serve people food, I make them finish it. That`s a Greek characteristic."
