Originally starring Sean Penn, Phoebe Cates, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the raunchy high school comedy directed by Heckerling (who later on directed another iconic movie for the next generation: Clueless) is a quintessential teen movie of any 80s kid.
Celebrating its 38th anniversary this year, the 1982 coming-of-age movie signed on a star studded cast for a charity table reading. The event was held to raise money for disaster relief in respond to COVID-19 (CORE) and to support the passing of laws that will reform the criminal justice system for the benefit of the unjustly incarcerated (REFORM Alliance).
Brad and Jen are joined by other A-listers—Matthew McConaughey, John Legend, Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, Dane Cook, Henry Golding, Morgan Freeman, Jimmy Kimmel, and Shia LaBeouf. The table read garnered 4 million views on its showing across multiple social media platforms.
You may donate and sign petitions to their beneficiaries through Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE) and REFORM Alliance.
