Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have reunited for the first time in months, for a live read of Fast Times at Ridgmont High.

The virtual reading was postponed in August due to technical difficulties, and now a new promo spot for the video has launched, showing the former flames laughing together.

Jen, 50, has her famous locks down as she wears a simple blue sleeveless top for the recording while 56-year-old Brad keeps his long hair loose and paired it with a scruffy grey beard.

The duo – who have become close friends in recent years after their bitter divorce in 2005 – will both take part in a virtual table read of the film, organised by Dane Cook.

The read will also feature original star Sean Penn, Brad and Jen – who were married from 2001 to 2005 – as well as Julia Roberts, Morgan Freeman, Shia LaBeouf, Matthew McConaughey, Jimmy Kimmel and Henry Golding.

But amid Brad’s dragged-out divorce with Angelina Jolie, it was revealed that he was quick to sign on once his ex-wife Jen said yes.

Dane has opened up on the casting, admitting former Friends star Jen was the first person to say yes.

“I think Jennifer Aniston was lovely and the first person to say, ‘I’m in,’ and then it just started to rocket after that,” he said.

Brad and Jen famously worked together in 2001 when he joined her award-winning sitcom Friends for the episode titled The One With The Rumour in season eight.

The read of the 80s rom-com – directed by Amy Hecklerling and written by Cameron Crowe – will be unrehearsed and fan donations will go towards the emergency relief non-profit CORE and the REFORM Alliance, which is focused on passing laws to reform the criminal justice system and protecting the incarcerated population from the spread of COVID-19.

Speaking to Extra, Dane added: “I wanted to do something that lightens the mood, can help people, and at the same time, I wanted to do something that felt celebratory, because we don’t have movies.”

It will be available on Facebook and TikTok.
