The actress says "things would literally fall off the shelves" and "the televisions and stereo system would all of a sudden blast."

Little did we know America's favorite girl next door once lived in a haunted house.

Jennifer Aniston revealed that she had to de-spook one of the first Los Angeles houses she ever rented in Laurel Canyon.

"Things would literally fall off the shelves, the televisions and stereo system would all of a sudden blast, and the coffeemaker would start making coffee," Aniston said in Harper's Bazaar's October's cover story, conducted by her close friend and best man to Justin Theroux at their wedding, Amy Sedaris.

"My roommate at the time, who talked to dead people, if that doesn't sound too crazy, did a little ceremony, and that freaked me out," she said. "I was new to Los Angeles and the spirit, past lives, New Age thing."

Aniston revealed she now has a healer or medium come through every one of her homes.

"This makes me sound like an absolute insane human being," she said laughing.

Aside from de-spooking houses, Aniston also loves home renovation -- so much so that she'd actually take it up as a career if she weren't an actress.

"It's a hell of an expensive hobby, though," she said. "If I wasn't acting, I would do that full-time: the process of seeing it, having the vision, then collecting the team of people who will execute that vision. I enjoy walking into a house that's been taken down to the studs."

Aniston confessed she had to "retool [her] attitude" when it came time to demo her husband's New York apartment.

"They say building houses can make or break a couple. I was so used to doing it on my own, and there were moments when I was like, 'Don't say no so fast.' I have this dialogue with my interior designer where I'll go: 'No. Hate it. Move. Next.' That can sound a little abrupt, so I had to retool my attitude a bit. It wasn't very hard because he loved whatever I brought to him."

Even as a "struggling waitress," though, Aniston always made sure she had a "pretty home."

"We were broke, so my mom and dad would go to thrift places and antiques stores and find these jewels," she explained. "My dad would strip the paint, and underneath would be a gorgeous old wooden cabinet with leaded glass. It was important for my mom aesthetically to have a beautiful space even though we couldn't afford expensive furniture. Even in my 20s as a struggling waitress, I knew how to make whatever rental I was in into a pretty home."

Aniston also spoke about her highly anticipated return to TV. Though little details are known about the show she will produce and appear in alongside "Friends" sister Reese Witherspoon, Aniston said she's thrilled.

"Lately, all the great work has been on television," she said. "Reese was my little sister on 'Friends.' She had just given birth to Ava, who's 18 now, so it was like, 'Oh, my God, a baby with a baby!'"
