David Schwimmer is celebrating a sweet milestone!

The Friends star, 57, made a rare public appearance on Friday night to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Raf's Italian & French Bakery in New York City.

The star-studded cocktail party — hosted by founders Jennifer and Nicole Vitagliano, alongside their partners Executive Chef Mary Attea and Executive Pastry Chef Carmari Mick — was also attended by celebrities including Olivia Wilde and Dianna Agron.

Schwimmer was all smiles on Friday night, wearing a black jacket and shirt with dark pants as he posed at a table with Jennifer and another guest in one photo and alongside another guest in a second photo.

Black appeared to be a theme of the night.

Wilde, 40, wore a sheer black top with black pants as she laughed with Agron, 37 — also wearing black — and other party guests in a photo.

Although Schwimmer has an Instagram account and posted his Uber Eats commercial with Friends costar Jennifer Aniston when the spot premiered last month, he leads a relatively private life.

In 2016, he explained that the level of fame he achieved on Friends impacted him in a significant way.

“It was pretty jarring and it messed with my relationship to other people in a way that took years, I think, for me to adjust to and become comfortable with,” he said on The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast at the time.

"As an actor, the way I was trained, my job was to observe life and to observe other people, so I used to walk around with my head up, really engaged and watching people," he added. "The effect of celebrity was the absolute opposite: It made me want to hide under a baseball cap and not be seen."

Weeks after his Friends costar Matthew Perry's death in October 2023, Schwimmer shared a tribute to his friend on Instagram.

"Thank you for ten incredible years of laughter and creativity," he wrote alongside a photo of him posing with Perry on set.

"I will never forget your impeccable comic timing and delivery," he continued. "You could take a straight line of dialogue and bend it to your will, resulting in something so entirely original and unexpectedly funny it still astonishes."
