Are David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston more than just friends? (See what we did there?)

According to several rumors, Friends actors David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston – who played on/off lovers Ross and Rachel on the show – are actually dating in real life. And as you can imagine, this rumor has sent the internet into a huge, excited frenzy!

According to the rumors, the actors started spending more time together following the reunion…

“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,” a source reportedly told Closer magazine.

“They’ve been spending time at Jen’s home, where she’s cooked dinners in the evenings, and have enjoyed quality time together, chatting and laughing.”

We would give anything for this to be true…

However, David Schwimmer has burst our bubble by breaking his silence on the rumors, with his reps reportedly telling The Huffington Post that there was “no truth” in the rumors of a potential romance.

So how did this speculation actually come about?

The rumors initially started shortly after the Friends reunion aired, when both David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston confessed that they were “crushing hard” on each other during the first few seasons of the show.

On the reunion, David confessed that he had a “major crush” on his co-star, and Jennifer immediately chimed in saying it was “reciprocated”.

And just a few months after the reunion and this mind-blowing confession, the rumors about the co-stars spending quite a bit of time with each other began.

If Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck getting back together has taught us anything, it’s that anything can happen in Hollywood!

We think there’s still time for this to become a reality if we manifest hard enough…
