Is it true that Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer dated?

Everyone wanted Rachel Green and Ross Geller to be together on the sitcom, and their fans want them to date in real life.

Fans of the hit 1990s program have followed the on-and-off relationship of their favorite characters, with the season culminating with an episode dedicated to whether or not they were together in the end.

But, spoiler alert, Rachel disembarked from the plane.

Not only were viewers sensing the initial spark between the two actors seventeen years later. But both Jennifer and David stated that they had a spark in real life, particularly during the early episodes of "Friends."

The two stars admitted that they had feelings for each other even before their characters Rachel and Ross started dating in the highly awaited HBO Max episode for "Friends: The Reunion."

David told James Corden, the show's host, he had "a major crush on Jen" in the first season.

"It was reciprocated," Jennifer Aniston added afterwards.

Later, David Schwimmer elaborated on the nature of their relationship, insisting that they never crossed the friendship line.

He explained they were both crushing on each other. "But it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship," he said.

He added, "We respect that."

Meanwhile, Matt LeBlanc retorted, "Bull----!" because he was only kidding and then was met with laughter.

The "Morning Show" actress, who was married to Brad Pitt and dated him, then voiced her relief that she and Schwimmer were never more than pals.

She told Corden, "I remember saying one time to David, 'It's going to be such a bummer if the first time you and I kiss is on national television.' And sure enough, the first time we kissed was in that coffee shop."

Jen recalled, "We channeled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel."

Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer joined the rest of the original "Friends" group for "Friends: The Reunion," a much-anticipated event.

Following their most recent disclosure, the two performed a table read of their first kiss scene, which was even spliced with a clip from that episode.

The "Since You've Been Gone" star even went on to reveal that he and Jennifer would "cuddle on the couch" during filming breaks.

"And I'm thinking, how did not everyone know we were crushing on each other?" David continued.

The surprise, however, was not spoiled in the least because both Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox were supposedly aware. Courteney, along with Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow, was relieved Jennifer and David didn't work out.

"How great though, ultimately, because if you had and it didn't work out," she said, "it probably wouldn't have been as great."

"Friends: The Reunion" is already on HBO Max.
