In May, Aniston, 52, and Schwimmer, 54, admitted they both had feelings for each other while filming the popular sitcom, but nothing had ever come of it. Rumours began to circulate that they were actually dating years later, shortly after their admission.
“That is really funny,” Aniston said to Marie Claire Australia during a Wednesday interview. I was just saying that I hadn’t heard of it. It’s true. “
” I was receiving a few texts from people saying that they thought you were taking a vacation, LOL. “

During the popular reunion special, Schwimmer admitted he “had a major crush on Jen” while Aniston also told late-night host James Corden “it was reciprocated” during the show’s run from 1994 to 2004.
“We were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing,” Schwimmer, who shares a 10-year-old daughter with ex-wife Zoe Buckman, added of his attraction to Aniston. One of us had been in a relationship for a long time and never crossed the line. The actress reflected on their frequent interactions and the flirting they engaged in, while acting opposite each other.
“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,” Aniston said in the special. We just turned all our love and adoration for one another into Ross and Rachel. “
Representatives for both Schwimmer and Aniston denied the rumors to Fox News last month.
