Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston received flirty throughout ‘Fast Times’ learn


Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston received down and soiled Thursday night time — on Zoom.

During the star-studded charity “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” table read, Pitt performed Brad Hamilton, the position originated by a younger Judge Reinhold within the 1982 cult teen comedy, and Aniston took on the a part of Linda, the woman a drooling Brad lusts after.

The former married couple, who’ve virtually gone on tour since their warmhearted reunion at the SAG Awards in January, needed to act out one of the vital embarrassing scenes within the movie.

You may recall when Brad takes an, ahem, personal second in his lavatory, or as narrator Morgan Freeman stated with blunt authority: “Brad is j–king off.”

“Hi Brad, you understand how cute I all the time thought you have been,” Pitt’s ex, whom he divorced in 2005, stated in his character’s fantasy. “You’re so horny.” Unlike actress Phoebe Cates, Aniston didn’t go topless. But it was a enjoyable bit that was certainly negotiated by brokers and publicists for weeks.

The occasion, held for a coronavirus charity known as CORE, managed to carry onto about 40K viewers on Facebook for an hour, and was filled with celebs: Shia LaBeouf, Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, Jimmy Kimmel, John Legend, Henry Golding, Dane Cook and the unique movie’s star Sean Penn have been all readily available. A couple of of these freeloaders barely turned a web page.

LaBeouf was finest as lovable stoner Jeff Spicoli, the position that made Penn well-known. While the remainder of the actors lounged of their costly properties glued to scripts, LaBeouf was principally off-book, sitting within the driver’s seat of his parked automobile whereas carrying a tank high and smoking what gave the impression to be a joint. Method performing, or a standard night time at residence, Shia?

Roberts additionally charmed as Stacy, the Jennifer Jason Leigh position, with an easygoing naiveté and that very same large ‘ol smile that hasn’t dulled a watt.

“Fast Times” was launched throughout extra freewheeling occasions, and the script positive ain’t PC. Roberts and Aniston —a finest actress in a drama nominee at Sunday’s 2020 Emmy Awards for “The Morning Show” — carried out the long-lasting carrot scene, which entails a graphic demonstration within the cafeteria. It scandalized poor Freeman.

“She takes out a carrot stick and eases it down her throat,” he stated, earlier than muttering, “Holy cow!”

Cute although the occasion was — and clocking in below an hour it didn’t even make it via the whole script — ever since Zoomtertainment took off throughout the pandemic, digital exhibits have develop into much less and fewer dwell. This is an annoying development. Indeed, whereas the night time was marketed as dwell, it was all pre-taped. Without sincere spontaneity, these occasions can fall flat. After a couple of minutes Thursday, blandness ensued.

But there was one pleasant consequence of getting A-listers act from their dwelling rooms: dangerous Wi-Fi. It was warmly reassuring to know that celebs should deal, not with a dear concierge internet service, however the identical crummy web suppliers you and I hate. Roberts and McConaughey, who appropriately performed women man Mike Damone, have been blurry on and off for a lot of the night time.

That was nice. This was, in spite of everything, a desk learn of a script based mostly on author Cameron Crowe’s precise expertise enrolling in — and spying on — a California highschool. The sensible Crowe is aware of that actuality is extra relatable — and funnier.
