The Viper Room is famous for a number of things, including being the location where River Phoenix died of a drug overdose in 1993. Back in the day, it was owned by a young Kate Moss-dating Johnny Depp, and served as the exclusive hangout for the entertainment industry’s biggest names and faces, including Leo Dicaprio. In spite of this, though, Duritz knew neither Aniston’s name nor face when they first crossed paths. “I had been on the road during all of Friends,” he said. “I had never seen it, I don’t think.”
The two only dated for a very brief period of time, as confirmed by Duritz, who said, “It didn’t last very long, but she’s a nice girl.”
Since then, Jen has starred in much bigger projects, Counting Crows has put out several albums (including 2021 release Butter Miracle Suite One), and The Viper Room is now a grunge rock music venue rather than a second home for Hollywood’s elite.
