Are David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston dating? Fans demand 'worldwide street parties' if true
Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer are allegedly dating, news outlets revealed on Tuesday, August 10. The duo appeared as Ross and Rachel in the smash sitcom 'Friends', creating one of the most iconic on-screen couples of all time.
Aniston was recently in the news for dating Gabriel Aubry, who incidentally is also Halle Berry's ex-boyfriend, three years after divorcing her second husband, Justin Theroux. Aubry had been slammed for being 'racist' and was accused of incest. Ross was reported last May to have been single and co-parenting with his wife Zoe Buckman.

Fans went crazy when Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer finally disclosed their hidden emotions for one other at the 'Friends' 25th anniversary special in May. According to new rumors, the two are actually dating in real life after rekindling their 'spark' during the reunion. The duo, during the reunion, admitted to having hidden love for one other in real life, which they had to "channel" via their characters, Ross and Rachel, because they were constantly in other relationships off-screen.
"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. And we never crossed that boundary. We respected that," Schwimmer said at the time. Aniston added, "We just channeled all of our adoration and love for each other into Ross and Rachel."

Former co-stars David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston are now dating in real life, according to Closer. A close friend claimed to the website that they only got together recently and things are moving well so far. The cast reunited for the reunion to reminisce about their time on set, discuss whether Ross and Rachel were actually on a break and confessed they shared a mutual "crush" on one other.
"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," the confidante said. "They began texting immediately after filming and, just last month, David flew from his home in New York to see Jen in LA," the source said.
"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. They were also spotted drinking wine, deep in conversation, as they walked around one of Jen’s favorite vineyards in Santa Barbara, where it was clear there was lots of chemistry between them," the source added.
Last week, the two appeared to flirt with one other online while promoting concert goods. David tagged Jen in a photo wearing a "lobsters" T-shirt with a silhouette print of their characters. In response, she said on Instagram, "For the record... we were SO not on a break," referring to their on-screen romance.
Fans, understandably went into a meltdown after the news came out. "The world collectively losing their s**t over Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer is honestly the best thing that’s happened all year," said a fan. "Petition to have worldwide street parties if it’s confirmed that Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer are actually dating manifesting," said another.
"I thought Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt getting back together was the only way I'd truly feel happiness but finding out she's probably finally dating David Schwimmer is making me question this for the very first time," a third chipped in. "If David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston are legit dating I think this is the one chance we have as a planet for world peace," another added.
