Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt acting together again onscreen for the first time since 2001.
The exes were both taking part in a celebrity Zoom event Thursday night. For a table reading of teen classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Aniston took on the role of Linda Barret and Pitt played Brad Hamilton.
The table read included Sean Penn (who played a delivery driver), Julia Roberts (Stacy Hamilton), Morgan Freeman (who read the stage directions/acted as narrator), Cook (Mark “Rat” Ratner), Ray Liotta (Mr. Hand), John Legend (Charles Jefferson), Henry Golding (Mr. Vargas), Shia LaBeouf (Spicoli), Matthew McConaughey (Mike Damone), and Jimmy Kimmel.
The reading was set up to support charities Core and Reform Alliance. Providing relief for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
During the performance, there’s one scene, in particular, that has everyone talking. In it. Where Brad imagines a bikini-clad Linda seducing him as she climbs out of the swimming pool at his house, which led to some sexy lines between the former couple. Aniston literally says the words, “Hey, Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were. I think you’re so sexy. Will you come to me?”
The rest of the cast were laughing and giggling during the scene. Morgan Freeman who played the narrator, came in to describe the scene: “He walks to Linda, then she reaches out and grabs him for a kiss, pulling him close.’’ Freeman continues: “Then she pushes him away so he can watch as she carefully unstraps the top of bathing suit.”
“The incredible Linda Barrett’s breasts fall loose, lord have mercy, she takes Brad’s hands and places them on her as she begins unbuttoning his shirt, they’re just about to fall into passionate lovemaking when…”
During what could’ve been an embarrassing scene, Aniston and Pitt never broke character.
Despite a very public break up. The exes have rekindled their friendship over recent years and were pictured together in January 2020. at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Pitt and Aniston were married from 2000 to 2005, before an acrimonious split after which he got together with Angelina Jolie.
