Jake Gyllenhaal remembers his first meeting with Brad Pitt It’s all just too good.

While working in 2002 on The Good GirlPitt was then married to the actor, and they had many “racy scenes.” Jennifer AnistonW Magazine asked him to recall this. “I can remember reaching out my hand to shake his and then accidentally striking the door. His confident and friendly response was, “Well, I have another one.” It is all fine. It was a lovely exchange. But, yeah—I was starstruck.” Who wouldn’t?

Though just about anyone living on this planet knows Pitt and Aniston have since split, they’ve defied the odds and remained good friends, supporting one another at award shows, celebrating birthdays together and even reuniting for that Ridgemont High: Fast Times virtual table read.

Brad and me are best friends. Like, we’re friends and we speak,” Aniston said on a June episode of Howard Stern Show when asked about the table read. There is no strangeness, except that everyone who probably saw it was looking for it.”
