Jennifer Aniston has been in showbiz for nearly 30 years. Throughout her career she has always looked radiant, whether she’s on the big screen, attending red-carpet events, or enjoying downtime at home. The actress first charmed the world with her beauty and talent when she stepped into the role of Rachel Green. One little heart was more impacted by her beauty than the rest, and that was of Cole Sprouse.

Not only did Sprouse get to work with Aniston as a guest star on the phenomenal sitcom, but the actress also reacted to his confession.

In May 2022, Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler sat down with Access Hollywood to promote their film Murder Mystery 2. During the conversation, Kit Hoover told the Emmy winner her costar Cole Sprouse, who played Ross’ son Ben Geller in Friends, liked her. “Cole had said he had the biggest crush on you shooting friends,” said the host. The 54-year-old found herself in complete surprise and responded, “he was so little”.

Sprouse, who has become famous for Riverdale these days, was only seven years old when he starred in the show. So when the interviewer dropped another bomb and revealed his age, Aniston was left speechless. The 54-year-old and her friend claimed in shock, “What?” failing to believe that he had turned 30. The Los Angeles native even raised her hands above her head in disbelief.

Speaking on the Drew Barrymore Show in 2021, Cole Sprouse explained his massive crush on Jennifer Aniston. He said he was so charmed that it became difficult to act in front of her. Even so, he used to stammer a lot and forgot his line when she was around. Given that the person in question is the Jennifer Aniston, who has also been declared the ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ for consecutive years, we do not blame Sprouse.

Cole Sprouse, however, was not the first person who had a crush on her during the show. His on-screen dad, Ross Geller, liked her the most when they met on the sets. The feelings were mutual, but both the actors never confessed it until decades later during their reunion for the show.
