David Schwimmer has responded to the rumor that he and Jennifer Aniston are dating after reports said they had been growing closer since the Friends reunion.
Rumors began circulating earlier this week that Schwimmer and Aniston have grown close again with a magazine insider suggesting the reunion had “stirred up feelings” for the pair, who portrayed Ross and Rachel, an iconic on-off couple in Friends.
In this week’s edition of Closer, the magazine claimed that the recent Friends reunion special, which took place earlier this year, brought them closer and that they have since been spending time together at Aniston’s LA home.
A source said: “After the reunion, it became clear that reminiscing over the past had stirred up feelings for both of them and that chemistry they’d always had to bury was still there. They began texting immediately after filming and, just last month, David flew from his home in New York to see Jen in LA.
“They’ve been spending time at Jen’s home, where she’s cooked dinners in the evenings, and have enjoyed quality time together, chatting and laughing,” the source continued. “They were also spotted drinking wine, deep in conversation, as they walked around one of Jen’s favorite vineyards in Santa Barbara, where it was clear there was lots of chemistry between them.”
However, after a little excitement, it seems that Friends fans are going to be very disappointed as a representative for Schwimmer has denied the rumors.
The representative told The HuffPost UK that the reports of a romance between Schwimmer and his former co-star are not true.
Back in May, Schwimmer and Aniston revealed during the Friends reunion show that they had a mutual crush on one another when the iconic sitcom was filmed.
Host James Corden said it was “inconceivable” there were no off-screen romances during the show’s, to which Schwimmer admitted: “I had a major crush on Jen.” Aniston then revealed that the crush was “reciprocated.”
“I think we both, at some point, were 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,” Schwimmer added.
Well, we’re safe in saying that we think everyone is hoping this dating rumor to be true! Because after all, they are eachother’s lobsters…
