A Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reunion—virtual or not—never gets old.
The former spouses reunited for a celeb-studded digital table read of the classic '80s film Fast Times at Ridgemont High in an effort to fundraise with Sean Penn's foundation, CORE, for COVID-19 relief. Other famous faces who contributed to the virtual reading included Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Henry Golding, Morgan Freeman, John Legend, and Shia LaBeouf.
During the read, Aniston and Pitt reenacted one of the film's most iconic scenes, in which the character of Brad Hamilton (originally played by Judge Reinhold) imagines his dream girl, Linda Barrett (portrayed by Phoebe Cates), stepping out of a pool soaking wet, as he, well, eagerly pleases himself.
Aniston portrayed her role perfectly, of course, but the rest of the cast couldn't help but break character and giggle while all eyes were on Aniston and Pitt reciting the steamy scene. Pitt for one, blushed throughout its entirety and also couldn't help but crack a stifled laugh.
The reenactment quickly took over Twitter, with longtime fans of Pitt and Aniston losing their minds over the hilariously awkward clip. And it actually wasn't the first time a brief reunion between the former pair set off social media. Back in January, both Pitt and Aniston won 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards for their respective roles in Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood and The Morning Show, which resulted in a single backstage photo of a gentle wrist hold that nearly broke the Internet.
