David Schwimmer, 56, and Jennifer Aniston, 54, had one of the most iconic on-screen relationships of the 1990s, but it took both actors decades to admit they had a mutual crush on each other in real life. Unlike his Friends character, David has had a few long-term successful relationships over his time in the public eye and is taking part in Celebrity Bake Off to raise awareness for breast cancer, which his ex-wife’s mother tragically died from.
David and Jennifer enjoyed a decade portraying the constant on-and-off-again relationship between their Friends characters, Rachel Green and Ross Gellar.
However, at the show’s reunion, David revealed: “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.”
For the first few years of Friends, Jennifer was in a long-term relationship with Daniel McDonald while David’s first high-profile relationship started in 1997 with his Kissing A Fool co-star.
Israeli actress Mili Avital, 50, dated David for four years before the Madagascar star proposed to her in early 2001, with many seeing a dream wedding lying ahead.
Unfortunately, the couple called off the engagement eight months later, and the actor has often lamented parting ways with “the one I really fell for”, as he said in 2005 interview with the Irish Examiner.
In August 2002 David found love again in Spanish actress Carla Alapont but their relationship was short-lived as they split in November 2003.
Following this break-up David turned fom actresses to musicians, first having another short-lived relationship with Gina Lee of the punk band Unisex Salon in 2004.
That same year the actor dated S Club 7 singer Tina Barrett, 46, but only for a few brief months.
Testament to David’s “two passing ships” comment, now that he was single Jennifer was one part of Hollywood’s hottest couple.
Jennifer had been dating film heartthrob Brad Pitt since 1998 and the couple had tied the knot in 2000.
In 2007, David became part of his own Hollywood hit couple with English artist Zoe Buckman.
The pair met in 2007 and almost instantly became an iconic couple in Hollywood before marrying in 2010 in a private ceremony.

In 2011 they welcomed their daughter Cleo, 12, but six years later fans were devastated to hear the couple were splitting.
David and Zoe are still on good terms, parenting their daughter together and the actor now honouring the memory of his former mother-in-law on Celebrity Bake-Off.
Following David and Jennifer’s candid comments at the 2021 reunion, with both stars now single, fans frenzied over a potential relationship in the works.
While representatives for both actors have repeatedly noted that there’s no truth behind any romance rumours, Jennifer and David continue to incite their fanbase over social media.
In late 2022, Jennifer posted a sultry snap on Instagram of herself in the shower, caption: “Something’s coming.”
David was quick to post his own shower pics, although far less elegant than his former co-star.
He captioned the post, following on from Jennifer’s statement: “A towel I hope??”
Rather anti-climatically, the actress was actually referring to a new shampoo and conditioner by her haircare company LolaVie.
