Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer’s camaraderie has been impeccable with their on-screen romance, which has time and again ignited dating rumours among the two. Just recently, during Friends: The Reunion, the duo had revealed about having a crush on each other during the early days of shooting the sitcom. And well, they are rekindling their romance in real life as per reports.
Are Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer dating?
During the reunion episode, Jennifer Aniston, 52, and David Schwimmer, 54, openly professed their feelings for one another. According to new reports by Closer magazine, the duo has been spending time together lately.
The report read, “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 where she’s cooked dinners in the evenings, and have enjoyed quality time together, chatting and laughing.”
The report further suggested, “They were also spotted drinking wine, deep in conversation, as they walked around one of Jen’s favourite vineyards in Santa Barbara, where it was clear there was lots of chemistry between them.”
Schwimmer admitted he “had a major crush on Jen” during the popular reunion special in May and Aniston told 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 Zoë Buckman, added of his attraction to Aniston. “One of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary.” That’s when Aniston also played along confessing that the attraction was mutual.
“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, “We just channeled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel.”
Most recently, David Schwimmer posted a picture on Instagram of himself donning a “lobsters” t-shirt that featured a sketched-out silhouette of the beloved TV exes and Aniston responded in her own Instagram post, writing, “For the record… we were SO not on a break,” that added fuel to the dating rumours.
Both the actors are single right now – Jennifer Aniston, 52, and actor-writer Justin Theroux divorced in 2017, as did David Schwimmer and artist Zoe Buckman the same year. While the banter between the two continues, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer are yet to respond to the reports claiming them to be dating, and we can’t help but feel excited.
Apart from their massive success on F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer followed up their chemistry with films like Marley & Me, Office Space, The Break-Up and Horrible Bosses (Jennifer) and Six Days Seven Nights, the Madagascar series and The Laundromat (David).
