The Internet nearly BROKE earlier this week when rumors that “Friends” co-stars David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston might be more than… well, just friends.
Their names began trending on Twitter on Tuesday, August 10, and every internet sleuth had their magnifying glass polished and detective cap pulled tightly on trying to decode what’s going on between the two.
The reason for the, let’s call it ‘Schwaniston’, craze is due in part to both Anison and Schwimmer admitting they had crushes on each other during the very early seasons of the hit NBC sitcom.
News of their lust for one another was revealed in May during the “Friends: The Reunion” special.
“I mean, the first season, I had a major crush on Jen. At some point, we were crushing hard on each other,” Schwimmer admitted.
He continued, “One of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary. We respected that.”
However, Matt LeBlanc literally called bull**** on the claims to their face! The cast then recalled that Aniston and Schwimmer would cuddle up and fall asleep on the couch between takes!
Aniston also chimed in saying, “I remember saying at one point to David, ‘It’s going to be such a bummer if the first time you and I actually kiss is … on national television!’ Sure enough, the first time we kissed was in that coffee shop.”
Lucky for them, their characters were romantically involved on-and-off throughout the entire 10-series run.
After the reunion special, the “Cake” actress was asked by Howard Stern during an interview if she’d “bang” her co-star crush.
Her response: “I would proudly say I banged Schwimmer if that happened, but no.”
I’d Bang Him!
More fuel was added to the fire when a source told Closer the reunion special “stirred up” feelings between the two.
“They began texting immediately after filming and, just last month, David flew from his home in New York to see Jen in LA,” the insider claimed.
So, after all of these years did their dream of getting together become a reality?!?
A rep for Schwimmer told The Sun UK there is “no truth” to the dating rumors.
So technically, they’re still “ON A BREAK!”
However, if you still want to bask in all of the “Friends” glory you can cop some limited-edition merchandise! Proceeds from sales will go to charities near and dear to the cast’s hearts.
So, what are you waiting for?
