The rumors began in May after the 54-year-old Emmy nominee confessed on HBO Max’s Friends reunion: ‘I had a major crush on Jen. It was 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.’

Jennifer and David portrayed fashionista Rachel Green and paleontologist-turned-professor Dr. Ross Geller for 10 seasons on the NBC ensemble sitcom, which concluded in 2004.

For producing the reunion, the duo will compete for the variety special (pre-recorded) trophy at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards, which air next Sunday on CBS.

‘It’s very exciting, and it was, kind of, not even expected,’ Jennifer gushed to ET.

‘We’re in the same category as Hamilton, so that’s the closest I’ll get to a Broadway show. But yes, that was a nice surprise.’
