Way back in January 2020, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt reunited on the red carpet for the SAG Awards, to everyone's delight, and now it appears the former golden couple are going one step further and working together again for the first time in 19 years.
The actors, who famously divorced in 2005, will appear together at a virtual live table read of the 1982 film Fast Times at Ridgemont High later this month. It'll be the first time the pair will have been seen on screen together since 2001, when Pitt made a guest appearance as Will Colbert on Aniston's long-running series Friends, while the two were still married.
Just four years later the pair divorced. Pitt then got together with his Mr and Mrs Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, but the former spouses have famously managed to remain good friends (with Pitt even attending his ex-wife's 50th birthday and Christmas party last year), which this latest professional venture is further proof of.
The live table read of Fast Times at Ridgemont High will see A-listers like Dane Cook, Morgan Freeman, Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, Shia LaBeouf and Sean Penn coming together for a good cause, with all money raised going towards Penn's charity CORE Response.
Speaking about the event, the 60 year old actor - who originally starred in the 1982 film as stoner Jeff Spicoli - said:
'On behalf of our dedicated team at CORE, I’m so appreciative of the support Dane [Cook, who's appearing in the read and will also help present the reading] 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!'
CORE Response is a charity that 'saves lives and strengthens communities impacted by or vulnerable to crisis,' according to their mission statement. The live event will be streamed on their Facebook and TikTok channels at 5pm PST on 21st August (1am BST, Saturday 22nd August).
