David Schwimmer, allegedly, texted and called Jennifer Aniston shortly after she divorced Justin Theroux.
Two years ago, New Idea published a shocking story about the Friends co-stars. The tabloid claimed that Schwimmer wanted to get back together with Jennifer Aniston.
David Schwimmer always had feelings for Jennifer Aniston
A source claimed that Schwimmer never really stopped loving his co-star, and he’s always held a candle for Aniston. As such, when Schwimmer learned that Aniston and Theroux were no longer together, he, allegedly, started talking to the actress.
A year later, the same tabloid claimed that Schwimmer and Aniston developed feelings for each other after they confirmed that they’re joining the Friends reunion.
David Schwimmer thinks Jennifer Aniston is the one
Aniston shared a cast photo on her Instagram account after the announcement. And fans of the actress claimed that a spark went off between her and Schwimmer.
Another source claimed that Schwimmer also told his American Crime Story co-stars that Aniston is the one for him. And their other co-stars, allegedly, encouraged Schwimmer to finally tell Aniston how he really feels about her.
And months later, Woman’s Day also alleged that Aniston and Schwimmer dated each other in secret while on the set of Friends.
A source claimed that Jennifer Aniston and Schwimmer decided their relationship as low-key as possible for fear that it would affect their roles in Friends.
However, none of the tabloids’ claims are true. According to Gossip Cop, it is unlikely for Aniston and Schwimmer to have dated while on the set of Friends.
After all, Aniston was already dating Brad Pitt in 1998 and they tied the knot in 2000. This means that the actress was married to Pitt for almost the entire duration of Friends.
And if Aniston and Schwimmer secretly dated each other then, this means that the former cheated on Pitt with her co-star.
It is also unclear what made Friends fans think that there was something going on between Aniston and Schwimmer after the actress shared a group photo on Instagram.
Gossip Cop also noticed how the tabloid’s claims that Schwimmer professed his love for Aniston was similar to the finale episode of Friends. And just like the storyline in the sitcom, the tabloid’s claim is also made-up.
Jennifer Aniston and Schwimmer didn’t date decades ago. And they never had feelings for each other. The Friends co-stars are nothing more than friends. And for the tabloid to say that Schwimmer wanted to get back together with Aniston means that they were together before when they’re not.
