Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, Sean Penn and many more A-list actors have taken part in a virtual  script read for 1982 film classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Former husband and wife Pitt and Aniston were joined by the stellar line-up for the "table reading", which also included Henry Golding, Shia LaBeouf, Jimmy Kimmel, John Legend and Ray Liotta along with host Dane Cook.

Over $50,000 (€42,000) was raised during the reading for charity CORE, a relief fund for community organised efforts against Covid-19, and reform group Reform Alliance.

Certain scenes throughout the read, which was broadcast on Facebook and viewed by over 2.2 million users, left the cast members giggling, including a moment in which Aniston and Pitt had to read a dream sequence together.

The Hollywood stars - who were married for five years from 2000 - recreated a risque scene between Linda Barrett and Brad Hamilton from the 1982 film.



Pitt's character has a daydream about Aniston's Linda making an advance on him. Roberts, voicing Stacy Hamilton, burst into a fit of giggles while Freeman - reading the racy scene in his distinctive deep voice - paused and said, "Lord, have mercy".

"Hi, Brad," Aniston read. "You know how cute I always thought you were. I think you're so sexy. Will you come to me?"

Former Hollywood golden couple Pitt, 56, and Aniston, 51, have rekindled their friendship in the years following their split and in January shared a touching moment backstage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where they were both winners.

Elsewhere in the table read, LaBeouf threw himself into the part of perpetually stoned surfer Jeff Spicoli, spending the table read seated in the front of his parked truck while smoking a rolled-up cigarette.

His intense reading of the lines was met with hilarity from Penn, who played Spicoli in the film but had to settle for a small role as a pizza delivery worker in the live-streamed event.

Goodfellas star Liotta played the part of strict history teacher Mr Hand, Golding played Mr Vargas and McConaughey read the lines of Mike Damone.

Kimmel played several roles while Legend voiced student-athlete Charles Jefferson.
