In February 2004, Aniston spoke about being ready to start a family with Pitt in her Interview with the Guardian:

“Because of the film we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened,” she told the publication. “I think a few months in I realized, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.'”
“We just became kind of a pair. And it took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realize that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe.”, she added.
