Brad Pitt Looks Awkward As He And Jennifer Aniston Recreate Risqué Scene During Table Read
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt reunited on screen as they reenacted the risqué topless daydream scene from Fast Times At Ridgemont High - and Pitt looked somewhat awkward while they did so. You can watch a clip here:
The pair, who were married from 2000 to 2005, were reading the script from the 1982 film alongside a star-studded line-up of fellow actors - all of whom were struggling to keep straight faces.
Pitt, 56, took on the role of Brad Hamilton while ex-wife Aniston portrayed high school 'sex queen' Linda Barrett. In the original movie, the two characters were played by Judge Reinhold and Phoebe Cates, respectively.
The well-known daydream scene was narrated by movie legend Morgan Freeman, 83, for the table read. He read: "Her eyes filled with desire as she says..."
Cue Aniston as Linda, saying: "Hi Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were. I think you're so sexy. Will you come to me?"
Pitt laughed awkwardly, looking down at the script as Freeman continued: "She reaches out and grabs him for a kiss, pulling him close... then she pushes him away, so he can watch as she carefully unstraps the top of her bathing suit...
"They're just about to fall into passionate lovemaking when we hear..."
Aniston then butts in, as Linda does in the film, bringing Brad (played by Pitt) out of the daze, asking: "Hey Brad, do you have any Q-tips?"

Also involved in the charitable table read were: Sean Penn, Julia Roberts and Matthew McConaughey, among others.
The table read took place to raise money for CORE, a charitable organisation providing emergency relief amid the coronavirus pandemic, and the Reform Alliance, which aims to 'dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system' in the US.
In a statement, host Dane Cook said: "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.
"This amazing group of performers were absolutely committed to supporting two vital organisations - CORE and Reform Alliance - and we're thrilled to share ridiculously fun scenes from our little class project."
Penn - who founded CORE and appeared in the original movie - said: "On behalf of our dedicated team at CORE, I'm so appreciative of the support Dane has given and continues to give to our work.
"I'm always game for a giggle. So to gather remotely for a night of laughs with so many talented folks while providing CORE with much-needed resources to continue our vital work - then consider us fully onboard to play!"
