According to multiple sources, after filming the Friends Reunion special, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer listened to their hearts and finally started dating. For real this time.
In the special episode, one of the questions pertained to off-screen flings between the cast members, and Jenn told the story of her having a crush on David. This is exactly like it was written in the show, but the roles were reversed. You heard it right: Aniston and Schwimmer were in love with each other, as were their characters Rachel and Ross. However, the couple decided not to cross the line and poured all those suppressed feelings into their on-screen characters.
Despite keeping the feelings at bay for years, the actors assured that they remained friends on the set, but who would want their first kiss to be on national TV? Apparently, these two didn’t mind. Instead of doing a few practice runs in a nice secluded spot behind the set, their first kiss was the one we all saw in the show. They just channeled all their adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel.
And now, after 20-something years have passed, former on-screen lovers decide to spend time together at the Aniston’s house in Los Angeles. The paparazzi saw them drinking wine while talking about something, probably reminiscing about the good old days, as they walked through one of Jen’s favorite vineyards in Santa Barbara. The sparkles between them were flying in every direction!
And last week, the actors even managed to flirt on social media. So, David Schwimmer published a picture in a T-shirt with a couple going in for the smooch and the text saying “Lobsters,” referencing the quote from episode “The One with the Prom Video.” And in addition to that bombshell, he tags Jenn Aniston’s Instagram page.
Let’s look back at some of their romantic ventures and see how compatible they are.
Jennifer Aniston has been married twice. First time to Brad Pitt in 2000, a total catch, and the second one to Justin Theroux in 2011, whom she met on the set of “Wanderlust.” In addition to the marriages, the actress had affairs with John Mayer, Gerard Butler, and Paul Rudd. She’s definitely choosing quality over quantity! But what about David?
In 2010, Schwimmer married photographer Zoey Buckman, and the following year their daughter, Cleo Backman Schwimmer, was born. In 2017, the couple announced that they had decided to take a break from their relationship and divorced soon after.
So if David did not forget to file the divorce papers, and if Jennifer is not “on a break” with one of her flings, there should be no reason why these two lobsters should not be together. We’re looking forward to seeing news about them calling their daughter Ruth, but for now, we’re just happy to see them happy.
