Jennifer Aniston has finally broken her silence on rumours she’s dating her former Friends co-star David Schwimmer.
Last month, Closer magazine reported that Jennifer and David had grown close since filming the Friends reunion special earlier this year.
The report sent fans into a frenzy, but a rep for David Schwimmer later confirmed the story was false.
Speaking out about the rumours for the first time, Jennifer told Entertainment Tonight: “That was bizarre. I could not believe that, actually. Like, really? That’s my brother!”
“But I understand it, though. It just shows you how hopeful people are for fantasies for dreams to come true.”
Jennifer and David played on-screen lovers Rachel Green and Ross Geller in Friends, which aired from 1994 until 2004.
During the reunion special, which aired in May, the former co-stars admitted they had a connection off-screen during the early years of filming.
David told host James Corden, “I had a major crush on Jen,” before Jennifer confessed, “It was reciprocated.”
David then said: “We were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing. One of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary.”
Jennifer added: “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 on national television.’ And sure enough, it was.”
“We just channelled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel.”
