Jennifer Aniston received Friends-inspired jokes after rumours of her dating co-star David Schwimmer first emerged.
When the gossip broke, the star’s friends in real life couldn’t resist texting her famous lines from the sitcom.
In a recent interview, the 52-year old revealed what kind of messages she received.
Despite the fact that the news was in the media and the outrage from Friends fans who wanted to see Aniston & Schwimmer together, she found it ‘funny.
She told Marie Claire Australia: “Honestly. I was getting a couple of texts from people saying, ‘I thought you were on a break, LOL.
“And I kept saying, ‘What are you talking about?'”
She continued: “And then I went online to see what was happening and I was like, ‘That is the funniest rumour that I never heard that got shot down in the quickest amount of time’.”
In the third season of the hilarious show, David’s character Ross says the infamous line “We were on a break!” for the first time after he sleeps with another woman following a fight with Rachel (Aniston).
It becomes a running joke in the series and is often said by the main characters.
Both Rachel Green and Ross Gellar played the role of Rachel Green in the comedy sitcom. They admitted that they had a crush upon each other while filming Friends Reunion.
Fans were thrilled to learn that they shared real feelings for one another while filming, and had hoped for a real Rachel-Ross moment.
But while the chemistry was real off-set, they declared nothing happened outside of filming and said the ‘timing’ was never right.
There were rumors that the duo became close again after the reunion special aired in August.
According to insiders, the pair had been visiting Jennifer’s LA home together.
A source claimed to Closer magazine: “After the reunion, it became clear that reminiscing over the past had stirred up feelings for both of them and that chemistry they’d always had to bury was still there.
“They began texting immediately after filming and, just last month, David flew from his home in New York to see Jen in LA.”
A representative for the actor later released a statement saying that there is “no truth” to the rumours of a romance.
