Harry Styles showed up on The Ellen Show to discuss everything from his biggest fear to his love life. In the beloved segment, Burning Questions, Ellen DeGeneres tossed questions as Styles in a rapid-fire format. Fans learned that his biggest fear is dying and that he’s a briefs man. While he dodged a question about his current love life, he was happy to share who his first celebrity crush was, and while Styles is just 25-years-old, his answer is unsurprising.
Harry Styles had a huge crush on Jennifer Aniston
Styles might not have been willing to tell DeGeneres a ton about his current dating life, but he was happy to share his childhood crush with the talk show host. Styles admitted that he had a massive crush on Jennifer Aniston when he was growing up. Styles was actually born the same year that Friends premiered. Styles was born in February 1994, and the Friends pilot aired in September of the same year.
Styles isn’t alone in that, plenty of young men had and still have a massive crush on America’s sweetheart. According to Access, Ashton Kutcher also admitted to crushing on the Friends star. Kutcher used a photo of Aniston as his screensaver, and allegedly bet a pal $1,000 that he would eventually go on a date with Aniston. That date never happened, but it’s unknown if Kutcher ever made good on the bet.
Jennifer Aniston hasn’t commented, but it seems like she has plenty of dating options
Aniston, 50, is one of the most iconic stars of the 1990s and early 2000s. Her role on Friends quickly made her a household name. Her good looks, easy-going nature, and quick wit further endeared her to a massive fan base. Celebrities are not immune to being fans either, and Aniston has dated a bevy of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors.
Aside from her two marriages to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux, respectively, Aniston has dated several big names. Before marrying Pitt in 2000, she was linked to Tate Donovan. Donovan appeared on Friends as the object of Rachel Green’s affection. According to The Sun, the pair were in the process of breaking up when Donovan performed on the show. Before Donovan, Aniston dated Adam Duritz, famed for his work with Counting Crows.
After her divorce from Pitt, Aniston hooked up with John Mayer and Vince Vaughn. Mayer made some comments about Aniston that rubbed her fans the wrong way, namely that he made it known that he was the one to end the relationship and that Aniston’s age might have played a role. Aniston, however, still has great things to say about the “Gravity” singer, according to Marie Claire.
Fans want Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt to be a thing again
Ever since Aniston split from Theroux in 2017, followers have been desperate to see her rekindle her relationship with Pitt. Pitt split from Angelina Jolie in 2016 after four years of marriage. Every time the former pair are spotted in the same room, rumors begin to swirl that they are rekindling their romance, which ended in divorce in 2005. A shot of Aniston looking lovingly at Pitt during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes further fueled the rumor mill.
Pitt was a guest at Aniston’s 50th birthday party, and he also attended a tree-trimming party the star threw. That doesn’t mean they are getting together for one-on-one dates, though. It would seem that the former flames are nothing more than friends, and, unfortunately for fans, they are never going to be a thing again, or so it seems for now. That hasn’t stopped the obsession with their relationship. Neither Aniston nor Pitt has admitted to seeing anyone right now, so their single statuses do lend a bit of hope. A commitment between the pair seems unlikely, and it’s doubtful Aniston will start seeing Styles, either.
