Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reuniting on-screen is exactly what we need in 2020

September 20th, 2020

Fans of the former power couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston went crazy on social media after they saw the two together in a virtual table read for Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Titled, “Dane Cook presents Feelin’ A-live: Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” the table read last September 17 featured a hefty ensemble of Hollywood stars aside from Pitt and Aniston, including Julia Roberts, Morgan Freeman, Shia LaBeouf, Jimmy Kimmel, John Legend, Ray Liotta, and Henry Golding.

It’s the first time in almost two decades that fans saw Pitt and Aniston on the same screen, albeit virtually together, but it was enough to make everyone swoon and hopeful that they can get back together in real life.

In one scene, Aniston’s character Linda Barrett talks to Pitt’s character, which coincidentally is named Brad Hamilton, and it was a steamy scene about sexual fantasies that the rest of the cast found amusing and incited a hearty laugh.

Fans were quick to ship the former flames.

I could write 10,000 words on this video. Jennifer Aniston is playing it so fucking cool but Brad Pitt is clearly embarrassed. I LOVE MY DIVORCED PARENTS.pic.twitter.com/C6RP8D68Xr

Aside from the scene-stealing moments of Pitt and Aniston, LaBeouf also gave a very genuine performance as the lead character, Jeff Spicoli, as he sat shirtless in his car wearing a pair of reflective sunglasses and smoking the whole time.

Not to be outdone, Freeman was hilarious as the show’s narrator who gives a blow-by-blow account of the funniest scenes on the script.

The table read for the 1982 coming-of-age film was organized by Dane Cook who emceed the event, and it was able to garner 4 million views across different platforms.

“We’re so excited to finally bring you our Fast Times table read in what I must say is the coolest virtual classroom I’ve ever been in,” Cook said in a statement. “This amazing group of performers were absolutely committed to supporting two vital organizations—CORE and Reform Alliance—and we’re thrilled to share ridiculously fun scenes from our little class project. We hope everyone who tunes in will Click ‘Donate’ and give what they can—no amount is too small (or big!).”

The virtual event was able to raise more than $50,000 in donations coming from different parts of the world.
