    Brad Pitt And Jennifer Aniston Reunited For A Good Cause And It Was Really Memorable

    "Hi Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were."

    Even though they've now been divorced for 15 years, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are still incredibly chill. Their recent participation in a Fast Times at Ridgemont High table read wouldn't have been possible were that not the case.

    That's because Brad and Jen ended up taking on one of the most, um, awkward β€” and memorable β€” scenes in the film: The one where Linda Barrett, played by Phoebe Cates, walks in on Brad Hamilton (Judge Reinhold), imagining her topless and more.

    After Jen, Brad, and Dane Cook playing Mark "Rat" Ratner, Morgan Freeman delivered the stage directions, Henry Goulding was Mr. Vargas, Jimmy Kimmel played "30 different characters, many of them teenage girls," as he put it, Shia LaBeouf was an almost too-believable Jeff Spicoli, John Legend was Charles Jefferson and his little brother, Ray Liotta was Mr. Hand, Matthew McConaughey was Mike Damone, Sean Penn was "the early '80s equivalent of Uber Eats," and Julia Roberts was Stacy Hamilton.

    The table read wasn't the whole script, but instead some "classic scenes" β€” like the one Brad and Jen did.

    Tag yourself, I'm Julia.

    While Brad and Jen's exchange was definitely the evening's climax (sorry), Shia LaBeouf deserves some kind of award for his performance.

    Brad was really in awe of Shia's Spicoli.
