Jennifer Aniston might be one of Hollywood’s most popular leading women. But she will always be remembered for her role as Rachel Green on the sitcom, Friends. While the show may have ended back in 2004, it is still one of the most-watched series in the world. However, when the show was wrapping up its final season, the cast decided to get candid in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that left everyone, tearing up a little.

But although the interview may have been running high with emotions, Jennifer Aniston surprised fans with the kiss from the series that had left its mark on her.

Back in 2003, the Friends cast sat down for their first farewell interview with Oprah Winfrey. They opened up about how they were feeling about the series reaching its end after running for a decade. However, it was Jennifer Aniston’s answer to Winfrey’s “favorite French moment” question that stole the show. The 54-year-old recalled her first kiss with David Schwimmer’s character Ross on the show and declared that kiss as her favorite.

While Schwimmer agreed with her, it was hard to miss the tears in their eyes. Both the stars agreed that it was the history between the characters and their chemistry that made that first kiss so memorable. It also proved that it was not just the fans that seemed to love the on-screen couple, but the stars as well. While it should not come as a surprise that Jennifer Aniston picked her first kiss with Ross as her favorite, fans only later understood the reason behind it.

Back in 2021, the whole Friends cast got together again for their first televised reunion since after the show ended in 2004. While fans were excited about their favorite cast coming together after nearly a decade, it was the confession from Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer that threw everyone. During the reunion, Aniston revealed that Ross and Rachel could have been a real-life item as both of them had crushes on each other. But she also went on to say that she and Schwimmer never crossed those boundaries.

While that sent fans spiraling wondering what could have been, David Schwimmer also chimed in and revealed that he had “a major crush” on the Just Go With It actress. In fact, the two of them channeled their mutual adoration into their characters. Though years have passed and their crushes have since faded, it is evident that the two are still good friends and are glad they kept things that way.
