During the “Friends” reunion special on May 27, the main cast — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer — sat down and discussed some of their best moments from the sitcom’s 10-year-history. In particular, the cast members sat down with host James Corden and dished out some never-before-heard information about what went down behind the scenes.
Schwimmer, for example, shocked viewers by revealing that he had the biggest crush on a fellow “Friends” cast member: Aniston. And, apparently, the feeling was mutual. “The first season, I had a major crush on Jen,” Schwimmer admitted, per BuzzFeed News. “It was reciprocated,” Aniston swiftly responded. At the time, Aniston was in a relationship with Brad Pitt, while Schwimmer was dating Natalie Imbruglia … so nothing ever happened.
“At one point we were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like ships passing because we were both in relationships when the other wasn’t and we really respected that,” Schwimmer said. Aniston then recalled their first kiss … which wasn’t a real one. “I remember saying to you [Schwimmer], ‘It’s going to be such a bummer if the first time we kiss is on national television…’ And sure enough, we did.”
Elsewhere in the reunion, the cast also looked back at some of their favorite celebrity cameos on “Friends,” and things got pretty hilarious.
David Schwimmer teased Jennifer Aniston over Brad Pitt's cameo
On the May 27 “Friends” reunion, the sitcom’s cast discussed some of their favorite cameos ever. “We had amazing guest stars,” David Schwimmer admitted (via ET Online). “Couldn’t believe all these people, who we were massive fans of, were on our show.” And, more often than not, special guests include some of the cast’s real-life love interests, such as David Arquette, Courteney Cox’s now ex-husband, and Julia Roberts, Matthew Perry’s former girlfriend.
“And your fella,” Schwimmer jokingly told Jennifer Aniston, referencing her ex Brad Pitt. “Pitt came and did one,” Aniston replied. During his 2002 “Friends” guest appearance, Pitt played Ross’ (Schwimmer) old friend from school, who hated Rachel (Aniston) for no logical reason. And, apparently, Pitt’s cameo is still one of Aniston’s favorites.
In a May 25 interview with Hollywood Access, Lisa Kudrow, Cox, and Aniston revealed their favorite celebrity appearances, including Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, Charlie Sheen, Reese Witherspoon, and Tom Selleck. “And Mr. Pitt was wonderful,” Aniston chimed in … to which Kudrow agreed: “He was fantastic.”
