They had a break – or were they? Even though the sitcom Friends ended 17 years ago, it feels like the 90s were just yesterday, thanks to the special Friends reunion and the various BTS photos the actors have shared.
David Schwimmer, who played Ross in Friends, shared a ‘Part-2’ set of photos on Instagram, including shots of the table read with reunion episode director Ben Winston and the iconic cast huddle. He captioned the post, “Reunion Snaps Part Two. 1. Our Reunion Director & EP, the inspired and insanely talented Ben Winston. 2. Table read. 3. On the couch with the best possible host we could have wished for, Mr. James Corden 4. Unexpected reunion with our brilliant and generous 1st AD Thank you for all these years Ben Weiss 5. Cast huddle right in front of the live audience of the Reunion 6. After a very long day, last hug of the night Thank you HBO max to bring us back together.”
Friends: The Reunion saw Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, Aniston, Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc, along with their co-creators Marta Kauffman, David Crane and executive producer Kevin Bright, take a trip down memory lane. During the special, Schwimmer revealed that he had a huge crush on Aniston during the first season of Friends. “At one point we were crushing hard on each other,” he said. “But it was always like two ships passing, because one of us was always in a relationship and none of us crossed that line. We respected that.” To which Matt LeBlanc coughed quite loudly, leading many fans to think there was more between the two actors.
“Honestly, I remember once saying to David, ‘It will be such a shame when the first time you and I actually kiss comes on national television,'” Aniston recalled. She went on to say, “Yeah, the first time we kissed was at the coffee shop. We just channeled all that love and adoration into Ross and Rachel.”
