We all love Ross and Rachel together on Friends - their on-screen chemistry was on-point. But it turns out that Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer did actually have real life crushes on each other in the early days of filming the television show.

During Friends: The Reunion, host James Corden asked: "Will you allow me to ask what I would consider to be a cheeky question? It’s impossible not to realize and see that you are all young, hot, good-looking, successful actors. It’s inconceivable to me that there weren’t, perhaps, off-screen romances."

At that point, Jen goes wide-eyed and David Schwimmer glances over at her before breaking the silence.

"The first season I had a major crush on Jen,” he revealed, with Jennifer adding that the feelings were reciprocated.

"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." David continued.

"When we had breaks from rehearsal, there were moments we would cuddle on the couch," he adds.

"We would spoon and fall asleep on the couch... and I kept thinking, how did not everyone know we were crushing on each other?"

Matthew LeBlanc, who played Joey on the show, affirms, "We knew. We knew for sure."

So cute!
