Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer dropped a major Friends bombshell about their romance

Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer revealed the bombshell during the HBO Max reunion, saying they almost got together during season one of the sitcom, which premiered in 1994. In the words of Monica Geller: I KNOW! Jen admitted, "Uh, well. I mean... David?" He said before she confirmed, "The first season." As David explained, "Yeah, the first season – I had a major crush on Jen." The Morning Show actress revealed, "It was reciprocated." David continued, "At some point, we were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship, and we never crossed that boundary. We respected that." She added, "So, we just channelled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel." According to his fellow friends, their low-key love wasn't so secretive. Courteney Cox added, "We knew for sure." And she seems to think it worked out for the best that Ross and Rachel's romance remained on-screen, for the most part.
