A source revealed to a news outlet recently that the pair started hanging out after their reunion that took place a few weeks ago. Since the cast was now free from the promise they made to each other when they wanted to start filming “Friends,” Aniston and Schwimmer seized the opportunity ti get closer, and eventually start dating.
What several tabloids reported as a mere fling between old-time friends, has now reportedly turned into a full-blown relationship, and it’s uncertain if fans are here for it.
Over the years, Aniston and Schwimmer had a very close bond that stemmed from the time they acted as love interests in the iconic comedy series, however, it apparently took years for the pair to finally see each other as more than friends on the show, thereby taking their romance off-screen.
Did this relationship kick-off after confessions were made on the Friends HBO reunion special in May 2021? Who knows. Keep reading below to find out more details.
The Reunion Highlight

For a show like “Friends,” the reunion special was not only anticipated by the cast, but also by fans worldwide, who watched for years how this group of special friends went about their daily lives that intertwined with one another at some points.

When the reunion show came 0n-board, everyone was excited to see and hear what the amazing group of friends had to say to one another. Of course, they all missed their time on the show, and wished they could go back in time to do it all over again.
However, there was one lingering secret within the group that had been keep for so long, and the reunion was a perfect time to reveal it. One of the highlights of the reunion revealed Aniston and Schwimmer talking about how they were attracted to each other all those years, but could not do anything about it due to a friendship pact that they made.
When the group of friends were selected to star in the series, they made a pact with one another that they would later honor for years. The friends decided that they would never act on any feelings that they have towards one another, as long as they are on the show.
Prior to the reunion show, Mathew Perry, who played Chandler Bing on the show, disclosed to Access that he and the other main cast of the show made a promise not to be sexually involved with one another for the duration of the show.
He went on to say that they made this promise in the hopes that it would keep them from jeopardizing the show and their friendship.

“There was a rule that we had, it was really important to the six of us, that we kept a friendship; that we were friends. Hooking up could have caused a strangeness that might mess with things. So we kept a friendship, and we did become really good friends to this day,” he said.
For a few weeks now, speculations have been spreading like wildfire on social media platforms that Aniston and Schwimmer are in a romantic relationship. But these rumors intensified when a tabloid noted in its headline that the pair are indeed involved.
Apparently, the body of the article on the tabloid only hinted that the possibility of a romantic relationship between the duo cannot be overlooked. The tabloid also made reference to the fact that they revealed on the reunion show that they had a crush on one another.
Fans on the other hand, are swayed by the possibility of a romantic relationship between the two, as they fully endorsed it online. Aniston is an incredible actress who deserves the best in the world. According to her fans, if she believes that Schwimmer is the best person for her, then she definitely deserves him as a partner.
Aniston’s Rep Shuts Down Rumors
In the celebrity world, when a rumor spirals out of control, it is difficult for fans to change their opinions, however, that’s why these famous people have reps to debunk or approve speculations that go out of hand on social media platforms.
If anything, the hearsay online that Schwimmer and Aniston are now in a serious relationship that they want to go far, has spiraled out of control. Thanks to the actor’s representative, the word on the street has toned down a little.
The rep called out Closer magazine— the original perpetrator for spreading false rumors and trying to sway fans in that direction for a different agenda. Although this has helped to reduce public opinion a little, many fans are still adamant, as they want to see the actors mingle soon.
While it is understandable these supporters want to see Ross and Rachel from the show, continue their love story in real life, the real truth is that Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer have never been romantic partners.
