Jennifer Aniston's love life is typically strewn across the headlines but did you know she dated actor Charlie Schlatter back in the day?
According to GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson, who was a comedy writer's assistant and worked on a show with the actors, Aniston and Schlatter had a brief romance off screen when they starred in the 1990 TV show Ferris Bueller.
The show that was "based way too loosely on the classic John Hughes film [Ferris Bueller's Day Off]," with Schlatter portraying Ferris and, "in her first major role," Aniston played 17-year-old Jeannie Bueller.
"To Aniston worshipers, I can offer little dirt. She was lovely, kept to herself on the set, smoldering a bit like her outraged character," Nelson begins. "She was a brunette then, with none of Rachel Green’s bob or self-possession. Oh, and there's this. GQ can exclusively report that everyone on set thought she was hot, including Schlatter, with whom she had a brief, torrid romance--while playing, it must be said, his older sister. To we immaturions on the show, this seemed extra-hot. Like performative incest.
Ferris Bueller aired from 1990-1991. Aniston, now age 45, is currently engaged to Justin Theroux, while Schlatter, 47, has been married to Colleen Gunderson since 1994.
