Their reunion will help to raise money for CORE, a charitable organization providing emergency relief amid the coronavirus pandemic, as well as Reform Alliance, which is focused on criminal justice reform.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt may have called things off in 2005, but they are reuniting online for a table read of the 1982 teen comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High, reports Good Morning America. Along with Brad and Jen, there's also Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, John Legend, Matthew McConaughey, making it quite literally a star-studded cast. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston got married in 2000, but headed their separate ways five years later. The last time they shared screen space together was in 2001, when Pitt made a guest appearance as Will Colbert on Friends alongside Jen's Rachel Green, as per Cosmopolitan.
While they were married, fans lovingly called them "Bennifer." Earlier this year, Pitt and Aniston were seen together at the 2020 SAG Awards. They seemed happy in each other's company while they exchanged pleasantries backstage during the award show. Now, their reunion will help to raise money for CORE, a charitable organization providing emergency relief amid the coronavirus pandemic, as well as Reform Alliance, which is focused on criminal justice reform. Presenter Dane Cook said in a statement: "We're so excited to finally bring you our Fast Times table read in what I must say is the coolest virtual classroom I've ever been in."

The event is scheduled to stream on Facebook Live, TikTok, and LIVEXLIVE on Thursday, (September 17), to mark the 38th anniversary of the iconic movie. According to The Sun, rumor has it that Angelina Jolie was the reason Pitt and Aniston split in the first place. There was a lot of speculation, but Jennifer tried to silence speculation once and for all in 2015, when she said, "Nobody did anything wrong...it was just like, sometimes things [happen]." However, helping the needy isn't something new for Aniston, as we reported earlier. According to LookToTheStars, which collates 'celebrity charity news and information', throughout her career, Aniston has supported several charity foundations and causes.

The actress has attached her name with several foundations like Stand Up To Cancer, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, the Luke Neuhedel Foundation, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In addition to these, she has also shown her support towards children's and youth charities such as Urban Arts Partnership, Friends of El Faro, and Clothes Off Our Back, along with human rights charities like the US Campaign for Burma, OmniPeace, AmeriCares, and Habitat for Humanity. Aniston does not usually publicly speak about her charity works, she likes to keep it quiet. There really is no point in publicizing the work that she does because the reason behind the donations is not to look good in the eyes of the people, it is to genuinely help the ones in need.
