Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, and More Reunited For a Fast Times at Ridgemont High Table Read
Class is in session! A star-studded cast that even had Chrissy Teigen shook got together for a virtual table read of the 1982 comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High on Thursday night, and it was totally awesome, as Jeff Spicoli would say. The fundraising event featured a reunion between Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, as well as stars Julia Roberts, Dane Cook, Sean Penn, Morgan Freeman, Henry Golding, Jimmy Kimmel, Shia LaBeouf, John Legend, Ray Liotta, and Matthew McConaughey, who sat down to act out iconic scenes from the movie, which Penn originally starred in.
The virtual special featured a series of memorable moments, including LaBeouf's hilariously accurate portrayal of Jeff Spicoli enjoyed by Penn himself, Morgan Freeman's dramatic narration, Julia Roberts (Stacy Hamilton) and Aniston's (Linda Barrett) adorable friendship, and a comical reenactment between Aniston (Linda) and Pitt (Brad Hamilton) as their characters shared a flirtatious scene in a daydream sequence.
Fans were excited to see Aniston and Pitt reunite once again, albeit virtually, after the two crossed paths backstage and were photographed sharing a hug at the SAG Awards earlier this year. The pair, who were married from 2000 to 2005, delivered an amusing scene that did not disappoint, in which Brad Hamilton imagined hooking up with Linda, made even funnier by Freeman's thrilling storytelling. Hosted by Cook (Mark Ratner), the event celebrated the coming-of-age film's 38th anniversary and raised money for COVID-19 relief and criminal justice reform through CORE and Reform Alliance.
