According to Matt’s dad Paul, Jen, 51, often shared cheeky make-out sessions with Matt – who turns 53 today.
Jen found fame playing Rachel Green in the hit US sitcom alongside Matt, who played the role of Joey Tribbiani.
And while Jen and Matt’s reps have denied such claims, Matt’s dad Paul insists that Matt bragged about the snogs to him.
Speaking to OK! USA, Paul claimed: “[Matt] got on good with Jen. They would make out in the dressing rooms. He told me about it – it was when she was married to Brad Pitt.”
He continued: “He was as good looking as anyone in Hollywood. But he isn’t going to age well. It’s the high life – I’ll see him with his gut hanging over his belt.
“He’s not someone who keeps himself toned when he’s not in front of the cameras.”
