Brad Pitt and Jen Aniston were ‘nervous’ to read Fast Times steamy sex scenes as Angelina Jolie custody battle drags on

BRAD Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's on-screen reunion was one of the highlights of the Fast Times at Ridgmont High table read - but the pair were reportedly both "a little nervous."

The former flames paired up with the likes of Sean Penn, Shia Labeouf, Morgan Freeman and Julia Roberts for the virtual table read of the 1982 film, and took on the characters of Linda and Brad.

In one scene Brad and Jen had to act out a romantic moment, narrated by Morgan, and which saw Jen's Linda tell Brad that she found him "cute" and Brad then "lusting" after Linda.

But sources close to the pair have now admitted they "were a little nervous going into" the table read, knowing everyone's eyes were on them.

Speaking to Us Weekly, the insider added: "It used to bug them how everyone pulls for them to get back together, but now they laugh it off.

"The truth is they have each other’s backs. They constantly bounce ideas off each other and share happy news when they have it. They have such a natural, easy energy together."

The duo - who have become close friends in recent years after their bitter divorce in 2005 - both took part in the virtual table read of the film, organized by Dane Cook.

But amid Brad's dragged-out divorce with Angelina Jolie, it was revealed that he was quick to sign on once his ex-wife Jen said yes.

Brad and Jen famously worked together in 2001 when he joined her award-winning sitcom Friends for the episode titled The One With The Rumor in season eight.

The read of the 80s romcom - directed by Amy Hecklerling and written by Cameron Crowe - will be unrehearsed.
