Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer had almost a love affair since the beginning of filming the series “Friends”, where they played the legendary couple Rachel and Ross, and the two comedians revealed in the special show dedicated to the series and their download Thursday.
“In Season 1, I was very attracted to Jane,” David Schwimmer said in a panel discussion for the six main casts, to which Jennifer Aniston replied, “It was reciprocal.” An attraction did not escape other “friends”, revealed by Matthew Perry (Chandler) and Courtney Cox (Monica).
The New Yorker said, “But it was like two boats crossing each other because one of us was still in a relationship.” “And we never got over her. We respected that.”
The Emmy-winning actress said for her interpretation of Rachel in 2002, “I remember saying to David,” It would be a shame if it was the first time we’d kissed on TV. “
“And of course it was the first time we were accepted in this cafe,” the now famous Jennifer Aniston continued, in the seventh episode of the second season, the seventh episode of the second season. “So we invested our love and affection in Ross and Rachel.”
The “Friends” special, which was shown online Thursday on HBO Max in the US and Salto in France, was an occasion to present a host of other anecdotes, particularly about the relationship between Monica and Chandler.
“Originally, they were to sleep together in London,” but this is a “short story,” according to David Crane, the program’s creator. He refers to the episode “The One Who Marries,” the final episode of Season 4, in which Monica and Chandler end up in the same bed.
But the audience’s reaction (the series was filmed in front of the spectators), jubilant for more than 20 seconds when Monica stepped out from under the sheets, stunned the book. “We realized that maybe there was more to exploit there and that we should pay attention to it,” recalls Marta Kaufman, co-creator of the series.
On a more serious note, Matthew Perry opens up, in a very brief sequence, about the difficulties he encountered while filming. “I felt like I would die if they didn’t laugh,” he told the crowd in the room. “This is unhealthy, it is clear.”
Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe) replied in astonishment, “She never told us.” “It felt like every day” of filming, insisted the actor, who has long suffered from opioid and alcohol addiction, and who he says is now being released.
