  • Matthew McConaughey joked that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's sexual tension was 'palpable' during the Fast Times at Ridgemont High table read.

  • The couple recreated the movie's iconic Brad Hamilton / Linda Barrett scene, causing the internet to completely melt down.

Remember when Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reunited for a celeb-packed table read of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, causing the internet to implode? To be specific, these two recreated the scene where Brad Hamilton fantasizes about Linda Barrett emerging from the water in a red bikini top, and not to be dramatic with the all-caps but THE TENSION. It was SIMPLY NEXT LEVEL.

Here's the scene in case you're one of the .0001 percent of society who somehow missed it:

Kay, so anyway, that brings us to Matthew McConaughey, who showed up on Thursday's episode of Watch What Happens Live and was immediately asked whether he could sense the former couple's 'sexual tension.'

'Could I feel the heat through the screen of Brad? So palpable. Yeah, it was so palpable,' he joked. 'No, it was—I noticed that after—that's what a lot of the topics were about that, or about them. No, I actually didn't notice anything through the screen, but that made for a good topic the next day.'

Sure, Jan.
