Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, who played the characters of Rachel and Ross in the hit TV sitcom Friends, are reportedly dating according to some news. The duo played love interest in the show and garnered a huge amount of love for their onscreen chemistry. After nearly 17 years of the show ending, it is reported that Aniston, 52, and Schwimmer, 54, are together.
Just three months ago in May, the show Friends had a Reunion special episode titled “The One Where They Get Back Together.” For the first time after seventeen years, the six main cast members: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, were together in the same room. The episode was hosted by James Corden and featured a lot of guest members like BTS, David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Kit Harrington, Malala Yousafzai, Lady Gaga, etc.
In the episode, we got to know a lot of things that happened during those days. One of the main highlights of the episode was David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston confessing that they had a crush on each other, but as they both were in a relationship at that time, they couldn’t cross their boundary.
When James Corden said to all the six cast members, “It’s impossible not to realize and see that you were all young, hot, good-looking, successful actors, and it’s inconceivable to me that there weren’t perhaps off-screen romances”, Jennifer turns her head towards David and says, “Well, I mean, David?”
The 54 year old actor then says, “The first season, I had a major crush on Jen. I was reciprocated. And I think we both at some point, we were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship.” He adds, “So we never crossed that boundary. You know, we respected that.” Matt LeBlanc hilariously interrupts saying, “Bullshit” sipping his coffee
Aniston accepted and confirmed that it was true. She said, “Honestly, I remember saying one time to David, it’s going to be such a bummer if the first time you and I actually kiss is gonna be on national television.” She adds, “Sure enough, the first time we kissed was in that coffee shop. But so we just channeled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel.”
Everyone was shocked when both of them revealed this thing, including James, who went on to ask, “Is this blowing anyone else’s mind?”
Courteney Cox, who plays Monica in the show, also told how she wept while watching the episode where Ross and Rachel kissed for the first time. She says, “The tension, it was just palpable. It was perfect. I’m so glad you guys didn’t because I don’t know well, you would’ve just been great actors. But man that was something.”
David and Jennifer also recreated that scene in their table reading, while the original playing was playing over them. At the end, they held hands instead of kissing and everyone felt that they both really have an amazing chemistry.
They explained how during the shoot breaks they would cuddle and spoon each other on the couch. David also questions how nobody knew they were crushing on each other. He says, “It was a situation that we couldn’t do anything about it.” Cox then says, “How great, though, ultimately, cause if you had and it didn’t work out, it would not have probably been as great.”
But it really looks like David and Jennifer are each other’s lobsters. According to a source for Closer Magazine, “After the reunion, it became clear that reminiscing over the past had stirred up feelings for both of them and that chemistry they’d always had to bury was still there. They began texting immediately after filming and, just last month, David flew from his home in New York to see Jen in LA.”
Allegedly, “They’ve been spending time at Jen’s home, where she’s cooked dinners in the evenings, and have enjoyed quality time together, chatting and laughing. They were also spotted drinking wine, deep in conversation, as they walked around one of Jen’s favorite vineyards in Santa Barbara, where it was clear there was lots of chemistry between them.”
Since this rumor broke out, fans have been really excited on Twitter.
“Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer are rumoured to be dating and we actually can’t cope”
“Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer dating is the real life ending of Ross Geller and Rachel Green.
He’s her lobster.”
“I thought Jennifer Aniston and Brad Bitt getting back together was the only way I’d truly feel happiness but finding out she’s probably finally dating David Schwimmer is making me question this for the very first time.”
Nothing has been confirmed till now from both sides. In the past, Jennifer has dated Tate Donovan, John Mayer and Justin Theroux. Brad Pitt and Jennifer were also married for five years from 2000 to 2005. Also, David was married to Zoe Buckman in 2010 but separated in 2017. Together they have a daughter Cleo Buckman Schwimmer.
