“Uh, well. I mean… David?” Jennifer replied.
“Yeah,” Schwimmer answered, before she confirmed from the “first season.”
“Yeah, the first season we – I had a major crush on Jen,” the 54-year-old actor explained.
“It was reciprocated,” the actress shared.
“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,” David shared.
A rep for Schwimmer has since shared that dating rumors between him and Aniston are simply “not true,” Huffington Post UK noted. A rep for Jennifer also denied the rumors.
