All anyone is thinking about today is when and where they can watch the heavily anticipated Friendsreunion. But if you’re one of the many who haven’t been able to watch it yet, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. As cast members have been drowning in nostalgia, they’ve also been revealing secrets that will blow your mind. The biggest bomb? Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer almost got together in real life!
The impalpable chemistry between Ross and Rachel was unparalleled, and now we know why! A huge part of it was actually real. During the Friends reunion, James Cordon asked the cast whether there were any romantic connections between the members, to which both Aniston and Schwimmer looked at each other, and confessed that there actually was something going on behind the scenes. Schwimmer revealed:
The first season I had a major crush on Jen—we were both crushing hard on one another, but it was like two ships passing ‘cause one of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary.
Aniston also admitted to catching a few feelings, she said:
And I remember saying one time to David: 'It's going to be such a bummer if the first time you and I actually kiss is going to be on national television.
The pair divulged that they would often cuddle on the couch during their breaks and while they thought that no one would notice their innermost desires, boy were they wrong. It seems all the cast members knew that they had a thing for each other.
Despite all the hidden feelings and ‘platonic’ cuddling sessions, the two stars saved their romance for the big screen. Instead they channelled all of that pent up energy into their fictional personas. That explains why we could feel their sexual tension even through the television screen.
