Dane Cook has said Brad Pitt had ''no hesitation'' about reuniting with Jennifer Aniston for a recent virtual  script read of the 1982 film classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

The 48-year-old comedian and man behind the Facebook broadcast, which was viewed by over 2.2 million users and raised over $50,000 (€42,000) for the charity CORE, revealed how he managed to unite the former couple for their first on screen outing in 20 years.

Speaking on the Better Together with Maria Menounos podcast,  the funnyman said: ''When I text [Jennifer], she was -- I'm not trying to make it more fluffy -- she could not have been more delightful, game, excited.

''Again, I knew once those first few names were in there, when Brad Pitt... started coming in, I was like, 'Yes! This is gonna happen.'

''Once his team talked to him, I'm sure it was just like, 'Here's who's already in there so far.'

"There was no hesitation, there was no rules, there was no, nothing.''

Cook said there was ''no drama'' between the former couples, and  insists their involvement was ''absolutely'' what the team "had hoped".

''There wasn't anything like... were they not allowed... No! Zero. No drama," he said.

''They both locked in. What you saw was absolutely what we had hoped. Which was just nice engagement between two massive, incredibly talented people!''

Julia Roberts, Morgan Freeman, Henry Golding, Jimmy Kimmell, Matthew McConaughey and original star Sean Penn had all signed up for the virtual event raising money for Penn's humanitarian charity CORE and the REFORM Alliance.
