Cook also gushed over Aniston and Pitt by calling the A-listers charming, beautiful, and talented.
“Some people just have that thing. That moment they got on-screen, I immediately felt like I was back in junior high school like I was a wallflower. They are the cool people and I’m over here. We capture that moment. You get to see the script read but see all the stuff that happens that’s unrehearsed… It just feels good,” he said.
Cook also called his work on the production team as a highlight moment during a lowlight year.
Other celebrities that took part in the table read include Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, John Legend, Henry Golding, Jimmy Kimmel, Shia LaBeouf, and Ray Liotta.
