“At some point, we were both crushing hard on each other,” Schwimmer said during the special. “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.”

“The beauty of that was that whatever feelings we had we just literally channeled everything into Ross and Rachel,” Jen said. “And I think that’s maybe why it resonated the way it did.”

Anyway, soon after, rumors sprang up that the two were ACTUALLY dating. An “insider” told Closer magazine that Jen and David had been “getting close” since the Friends reunion.

“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,” the source said.

But David’s rep shut it down, telling BuzzFeed News that reports of a romance between him and Jen were not true. (Boo.)
