“You and David in the early years had a crush on each other,” host Kelly Ripa said to which Aniston responded, “Yes, we did. We just let it play out on TV.”

“Sure enough, the first time we kissed was in that coffee shop,” the Hollywood beauty added. “So, we just channeled all of our love and adoration for each other into [their characters] Ross and Rachel.”
