New York: Jennifer Aniston has been unlucky in love so far and the Hollywood star`s father has now come up with some advice, asking her to date Greek men.

The elder Aniston, who was born Yannis Anastassakis in Crete, has asked his daughter to go back to her roots to find love, reported People magazine.

"Greek men are sexier and make better boyfriends," the 77-year-old said at the Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund`s 20th Anniversary Gala in New York.

Asked if he`d be happy if Jennifer, 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 does that entail? "Honesty," he replied. Aniston, who has played Victor Kiriakis on NBC`s `Days of Our Lives` since 1985, was honored at Saturday`s gala along with Gilles Marini, star of the ABC drama `Brothers & Sisters`.
