“We were both hitting each other hard, 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 was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary.”
The actress played together and reflected on the pair’s repeated flirtations while acting opposite each other.
“I remember I once said to David, ‘It would be very disappointing if you and I were actually kissing on national television for the first time.’ And of course, it was,” Aniston said in the special. “We’ve just channeled all our love and affection for each other into Ross and Rachel.”
Representatives for both Schwimmer and Aniston denied the rumors to Granthshala News last month.
