Wheeler had the fondest memories of working alongside Perry on the show.

"I think we both, at some point, we both were crushing hard on each other," he said. "But it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary. You know, we respected that."
When Friends started filming, Aniston was dating actor Tate Donovan before she married Brad Pitt in 2000. Meanwhile, Schwimmer was linked to actresses like Carla Alapont, Mili Avital and Aussie singer Natalie Imbruglia.
