On Monday, fans of the former couple — nicknamed "Bennifer" — were thrilled to see Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston in a virtual call together. It has been years since the pair have been on any screen at the same time. 

Both of them will be part of a table read of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." The event was supposed to air a month ago but was delayed due to the coronavirus effects. The post is found below.

ANISTON & PITT ON-SCREEN AGAIN

In the shot shared on The Playlist's Twitter account, we see Aniston with a close-mouthed smile and both her hands rested near her chin. Her box is in the top left corner of the screen. 

Aniston remains single in the public eye as she continues to build her career. Meanwhile, her ex Pitt was recently connected to a new lady named Nicole Poturalski.

At the bottom is her ex-husband, Pitt, whose smile is more toothy but just as relaxed. The handsome actor wore a bright green t-shirt as he spoke to his colleagues.

The other big names present were Dane Cook, Morgan Freeman, Henry Golding, Jimmy Kimmel, Shia LaBeouf, John Legend, Ray Liotta, Matthew McConaughey, Sean Penn, and Julia Roberts. 

Penn is the only one who was in the original 1982 teen comedy, while Cook is the one who put the star-studded read together. Pitt and Aniston agreed to be part of things, much to fans' delight.

HELPING THOSE IN NEED

Aniston and Pitt have reportedly restored their friendship after their five-year marriage ended in 2005. They are now working together for the cause amid the COVID-19 crisis. 

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards Penn's non-profit organizations Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE) and REFORM Alliance. Both aim towards assisting those in need due to the pandemic. 

The table read will stream on LiveXLive, CORE's TikTok page, and their official Facebook page on September 17 at 9 pm ET and 6 pm PT. As for the upcoming movie, actor-character placements remain unknown.

"FRIENDS" REUNION STILL TO FILM

The benefit follows a delay of the planned "Friends" reunion, which was supposed to be filmed earlier this year. Aniston commented on the postponement with an optimistic viewpoint, saying

"This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been. So I choose to see it as the glass is half-full that it got postponed. Look, we're not going anywhere."

PITT'S RUMORED NEW GIRLFRIEND

Aniston remains single in the public eye as she continues to build her career. Meanwhile, her ex Pitt was recently connected to a new lady named Nicole Poturalski. 

Poturalski, a German model, was spotted driving in the same vehicle as Pitt as they went from one airport to another in France's south. It would not be the first woman Pitt has dated since Aniston, of course. 

THEIR FIRST PUBLIC REUNION

In 2005, the pair announced their separation. Later on, they dismissed rumors that Pitt and Angeline Jolie had gotten together during his relationship with Aniston.

However, Pitt and Aniston seemingly stopped speaking for years. Then, in January 2020, the two appeared friendly backstage at the SAG Awards. Their smiles and touches caused somewhat of a frenzy.

THERAPY FROM WORK

Elsewhere, Aniston pointed to her new Apple TV+ series as a therapeutical outlet last month. "The Morning Show," she says, was like having 20 years' worth of therapy put into 10 episodes. 

Following her role as co-anchor on the series, Aniston earned a Screen Actors Guild award. Aniston cited her own experiences as the main reason she could relate to her character.
