Watch: Is David Schwimmer Up to Do a "Friends" Reboot?

Were David Schwimmer, 54, and Jennifer Aniston, 52, as hush-hush about their crushes on each other during Friends production as they thought? Turns out, more people responded to their reunion revelation with a big Chandler-style, "I knew it!" 

After Schwimmer and Aniston revealed that they had feelings for each other while filming Friends, one of Schwimmer's exes, Natalie Imbruglia, 46, shared how she felt—and what she knew—about the situation.

Asked about Schwimmer and his feelings for Aniston during a recent appearance on KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show, she jokingly asked the hosts, per the Daily Mail, "Were you wondering if there was a crossover?" 

Imbruglia continued, "I thought that too. No, I'm joking." 

The "Torn" singer then replied more seriously, "It was such a long time ago, I don't remember."

"I do remember being on the set and I remember everybody being lovely and really, really nice," the star continued. "I wasn't paying attention to whether they were giving each other ‘little looks' over my shoulder. I don't know if that was happening. I'm OK with whatever happened back then. It was a long time ago."

Friends Real-Life Loves

During the Friends reunion, Schwimmer revealed, "The first season, I had a major crush on Jen. At some point, we were crushing hard on each other."


But unfortunately the timing didn't work out for them. (For what it's worth, Schwimmer and Imbruglia's 1996-1997 romance would have put them in the series' third season.)

"It was like two ships passing," Schwimmer explained, "because one of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary."

But now that both of the actors are currently single… who knows, maybe they are each others' lobsters.
