Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston in the past have been one of the most iconic couples of Hollywood. Everyone in the world adored them together and couldn’t get enough of them. Brad Pitt’s cameo in the hit TV show FRIENDS is still considered one of the best cameos in the history of television. An old video has been going around social media. It is from Brad Pitt’s interview with Oprah Winfrey from back in 1998. He was asked the question about his favourite TV couple, and his answer was Ross and Rachel, played by David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston in the hit show FRIENDS.
While answering the question, Brad Pitt blushed and that’s what went viral. In the show Oprah played the Rapid Fire round with him, when she asked him about his favourite TV couple. Brad did not instantly answer, and was seen thinking for a minute. He was all smiles and he blushed as he said his favorite TV couple was Ross and Rachel. “Ahh… favourite TV couple…. favourite TV couple…let me see…Oh geez, Ross and Rachel!” which also made Oprah go, “Oh geez!”
The video is once again going viral on Instagram, and fans got nostalgic. While one social media user wrote, “Roschel club,” while another fan wrote, “He and Jennifer Aniston were an amazing couple.”
TV shows may come and go, but FRIENDS is for life! After making us wait for over two decades, the reunion episode of the sitcom was finally announced last year and is going to air on the 27th May 2021 on HBO Max.
Talking about memories and nostalgia, remember when was asked the one TV couple he shipped and he also picked a duo from Friends? Yeah, that happened!
In 1998, Pitt appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show where she asked him his favourite onscreen couple. Any guesses, who could it be. Hint: they might or might not be on a break!
Pitt took some time to answer. He said, “Ahh...favourite TV couple...favourite TV couple...ahh…” and after thinking a little bit, he blurted out, “oh geez, Ross and Rachel!”
So, yeah he was a Roschel shipper way before he got married to Jennifer Aniston who played Rachel Green on the show. The question to ask here is if he thought they were on a break or not?
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reportedly started dating the same year as this interview and married two years later in 2000. They later got divorced in 2005, a year after the show ended.
However, Pitt had appeared as the guest star on the show in 2001 as Will Colbert, Monica and Ross’s friend from high school who hated Rachel because she was mean and popular.
Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing Brad Pitt reprising his role in Friends: The Reunion but it will feature the main cast Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer along with a few other characters like Janice and Richard who will on the show.
