No, they’re not back together. But they did share a suggestive exchange or two during a celebrity table read of the classic 1980s movie “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” and people on social media can’t get enough of it.
Aniston read the lines of Linda Barrett, while her ex-husband Pitt played the part of popular high school student Brad Hamilton. In the 1982 film, the parts were played by Phoebe Cates and Judge Reinhold.
During the reading, Brad has a daydream about Linda coming on to him.
“Hi, Brad,” Aniston read. “You know how cute I always thought you were. I think you’re so sexy. Will you come to me?”
The exchange was posted by viewer Chris Evans at @notcapnamerica, remarking on fellow participant Julia Roberts’ reaction to the scene — a big smile.
There was also the somewhat flirty greeting Aniston and Pitt exchanged at the beginning, which was posted to Twitter by @vtusx with the comment, “Not me freaking out.”
“Can these two get back together already?” wrote Twitter user @pallaviibhatia.
Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, Sean Penn (who played Jeff Spicoli in the movie), Henry Golding, Shia LaBeouf, Jimmy Kimmel, John Legend and Ray Liotta also took part in the virtual event, along with host Dane Cook and narrator Morgan Freeman.
The inclusion of both Aniston and Pitt created a huge buzz, especially following their January 2020 interaction at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. However, every other A-list reader got plenty of praise as well.
“Seeing @SeanPenn reactions to this table read have been the highlight for me,” wrote Twitter user @jordanhembrough. “I mean, this dude LIVED the movie years ago. This must have been a total trip seeing this again…”
The table read was to support charities CORE and Reform Alliance in their efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. CORE was one of the first non-profit organizations to provide free COVID-19 testing to the public; to date, they’ve tested more than 1.5 million people across the country. Reform Alliance works to decrease the spread of COVID-19 in prison populations.
If you missed the live reading, you can watch it on-demand on the CORE Facebook or YouTube page, according to this post from @CoreResponse.
