Friends: two actors admit to having been very attracted to each other in reality
So there you have it, the world now knows a little more about the Friends series, nearly 25 years later after the special aired on HBO Max. British host James Corden, who hosted the special, managed to unmask a little-known fact about the fans by asking the actors a prying question: It's impossible not to realize and see that you were all young, sexy, beautiful actors. It's inconceivable to me that there may not have been any off-screen romances?
Looking awkward, Jennifer Aniston then coughed before answering: Well I mean, David? Can you answer?
In the first season, I had a crush on Jen, admits David Schwimmer, with Jennifer agreeing that the feelings were mutual. At one point we had a big crush on each other, but it was like two ships passing each other because one of us was still in a relationship. So we never crossed that boundary, you know we respected that.
The couple insists they were nothing more than friends, with Jennifer Aniston admitting:
I remember once saying to David, 'It's going to be really disappointing if the first time you and I kiss is going to be on national television. And indeed, the first time we kissed was in this café (Central Perk) for this scene. So we just channeled all our adoration and love for each other as Ross and Rachel.
So Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer confessed that they almost became real Ross and Rachel during this special Friends reunion.
