How Did Dane Cook Pull Off The Brad And Jen Reunion? The Comedian Reveals All
A reunion that will go down in history. Hollywood legends Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston sent the internet ablaze last week after reuniting — virtually, of course — for Dane Cook’s table reading of the classic film Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
Cook was talking to entertainment reporter Maria Menounos on her podcast, "Better Together," and revealed how the iconic reunion happened.
"When I text Jennifer, she was — I’m not trying to make it more fluffy — she could not have been more delightful, game, excited," he told Menounos. "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.'"

The Good Luck Chuck star confirmed that Aniston signed on to do the table read before Pitt.
"Once his team talked to him, I’m sure it was just like, 'Here’s already in there so far.' There was no hesitation, there was no rules, there was no, nothing," Cook told the host. "There wasn’t anything like … were they not allowed … No! Zero. No drama."
"They both locked in. What you saw was absolutely what we had hoped," he added. "Which was just nice engagement between two massive, incredibly talented people!"

Other A-listers who took part in the table read included Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, Morgan Freeman and many others.
Cook also revealed that although the table read appeared to go smoothly, there were some hiccups along the way.
"The dilemma was we wanted to do this back like in April, and I think it fell apart completely at least five times," Cook said. "There were life things happening in the world, and the protests started, and that put the pause on it. And then it just stopped."
Aniston and Pitt were married for five years before divorcing in January 2005, but the famous exes have remained friendly ever since. The two set the internet on fire when they reunited for the first time in January at the 2020 SAG Awards.

While most people were elated to watch Aniston and Pitt reunite via Zoom, Riverdale star Lili Reinhart took to Twitter to share her disapproval of the whole ordeal.
"Unpopular opinion: can we just leave Jennifer and Brad alone? Stop analyzing their every move and facial expression whenever they’re involved in something together," the actress wrote. "Let them live their lives in peace."
