Lili Reinhart has an “unpopular opinion” about audiences swooning over Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s recent online reunion.
“Can we just leave Jennifer and Brad alone?” she appealed on Twitter yesterday, Sept. 19 after clips of their reunion were widely shared online.
Some of Hollywood’s biggest names gathered for a virtual table read of the 1980s classic “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, including original cast member Sean Penn.
Even with a star-studded cast, audiences could not help notice the chemistry between former spouses Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston during the virtual event on Thursday, Sept. 17.
Other stars who joined the read were Julia Roberts, Morgan Freeman, Matthew McConaughey, Shia LaBeouf, John Legend, Henry Golding, Dane Cook and Ray Liotta.
Just the moment of Pitt and Aniston greeting each other by their last names drew fans’ attention on social media.

A popular clip involved their respective high school characters, Brad Hamilton and Linda Barrett, particularly when Brad daydreams about Linda while masturbating, and Linda catches him in the act.
This is the best thing I’ve seen today!

The actors could be seen appearing amused and awkward at the scene — Roberts for her part was grinning.
But Reinhart was not onboard with fans shipping the exes.
“Stop analyzing their every move and facial expression whenever they’re involved in something together,” she said. “Let them live their lives in peace.”
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. Let them live their lives in peace.

Pitt and Aniston were married from 2000 to 2005, and though they have been friendly with one another post-split, it seems they are remaining just friends. Pitt has been recently linked to German model Nicole Poturalski. JB
