Jennifer Aniston & Jon Stewart Laugh About Their Awkward First Date

08/20/2010 at 12:45 PM EDT



Before Pitt, Vaughn and Mayer, there was Stewart – Jon Stewart, that is.

When Jennifer Aniston visited The Daily Show Thursday night, the talk-show host reminded her that they'd shared a romantic Italian meal in New York City more than a decade ago. But their recollections of the evening were, to say the least, somewhat conflicting.





"I asked you out," Stewart said. "And it was lovely. I remember you brought so many of your friends. And I remember thinking, 'She's so excited to be on a date with me, she wants me to get to know her posse.' "

Aniston saw things differently. "If I remember correctly, wasn't it sort of like, 'Hey, a group of us are going out, do you want to join?' " she asked.

Regardless of who possesses the better memory, Stewart still has fond feelings for his would-be flame. "You were lovely then and lovely now," he said.
