While it sounds like they’re not each other’s real lobsters, the confirmation that they really were in love was a big enough bomb for 2021. “The first season,” Schwimmer said during the meeting, “I was very much in love with Jen.”
Aniston added, “It was reciprocity.”
So why didn’t they just meet? “At one point we both put a lot of pressure on each other, but it was like two ships,” the actor recalled, “because one of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that line.”
Aniston and Brad Pitt divorced in 2005, a year later Friends the finale aired. After less than three years of marriage she and Justin Theroux announced their separation in 2018. As for Schwimmer, he is also an ex-wife Zoe Buckman broke up in 2017.
