“That was bizarre,” Aniston said of the rumors.

“I could not believe that, actually. Like, really? That’s my brother,” she told the outlet. “But I understand it, though. It just shows you how hopeful people are for fantasies, for dreams to come true.”

“The first season, I had a major crush on Jen,” he said. “At some point we were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing, because one of us was always in a relationship.”

Aniston also chimed in during the cast’s sit-down with James Corden, confirming that she felt the same way at the time.

“I remember saying at one point to David, ‘It’s going to be such a bummer if the first time we actually kiss is...on national television!' Sure enough, the first time we kissed was in that coffee shop,” she revealed, referring to Central Perk.
