Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Recreated the Masturbation Scene in Fast Times. Fans Lost It
"Hi, Brad," Aniston as Linda said. "You know how cute I always thought you were. I think you're so sexy. Will you come to me?"
Pitt glances at the camera and gives a sly smirk.
Perhaps the best part, however, is Morgan Freeman's narration of the scene, avoiding any confusion over what Brad is doing in the bathroom when Linda walks in for a Q-Tip: “Brad is jacking off,” Freeman says as the narrator.
Meanwhile, LaBeouf not only memorized his lines for Spicoli, but got really method with his acting and smoked in the back of a van through the whole thing.
The masturbation scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High ranks among the most-referenced moments in raunchy teen comedy cinema. Brad, who's played by Judge Reinhold, gets home from his shitty job at a fast-food restaurant to find Linda, played by Phoebe Cates, hanging out at their backyard pool with his sister. Dressed in a ridiculous pirate costume from Captain Hook Fish & Chips, and feeling bummed-out after a breakup, Brad goes into the bathroom, where he imagines Linda slipping out of the pool in slow motion set to The Cars' "Moving in Stereo."
"Hi, Brad. You know how cute I always thought you were," she says before unhooking her bikini top and sharing a steamy kiss with him. The daydream quickly evaporates when Linda walks in on Brad sitting on the toilet, masturbating.
"Doesn't anyone fuckin' knock anymore?!" Brad yells, penis in hand.
It's an unforgettable movie moment. But it might be overshadowed by another meta-movie moment, in which famous exes Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston recreate the scene over a Zoom table read for charity.
On Thursday night, Pitt and Aniston joined Julia Roberts, Shia LaBeouf (as Jeff Spicoli!), Matthew McConaughey, and narrator Morgan Freeman in a Fast Times at Ridgemont High table read to raise money for Sean Penn's organization CORE. Penn, of course, played Spicoli in the 1982 original.
And fans lost their minds over Pitt and Aniston reading that scene.
