- David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston swore on their lives that they didn’t get together while they filmed Friends. If that had taken place, she would have admitted it proudly.
While working on Friends, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer admitted to having feelings for each other, but never acted on them. During a recent reunion episode, the actors who starred as Rachel and Ross spoke about how they got along on the sitcom.
The New York Post reported that Jennifer Aniston explained that she would ‘proudly’ admit that she ‘banged’ David Schwimmer if it had happened.
The Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox were guests on The Howard Stern Show when she said this. Whenever the right time came, it was never right, and it would not have worked,” she said. “We literally channeled everything we were feeling into Ross and Rachel, and that’s one of the reasons why it resonated so much.”
However, we have never, ever, on my life before [gotten together]. And Courteney and Lisa would know that because they have heard of it. They can vouch for me,” she added, as Courteney Cox stood behind her. Howard won’t believe me, said the Morning Show star. If that happened, I would be proud to say that I hit Schwimmer. But no.”
During the production of Friends, both actors confessed to having crushed on each other. The first time Aniston and David kissed was in that coffee shop, Aniston said at the time. “It’s going to be a bummer if that happens on national television,” Aniston said. Schwimmer noted the two of them were deeply in love, but their relationship was as if they were on two separate ships. “We respected their relationship, you know,” adds Schwimmer.
