Brad Pitt accompanies Marion Cotillard on red carpet

The recently single actor attended a film premiere alongside Marion Cotillard

Brad Pitt is officially out of hiding.
The actor was all smiles as he walked the red carpet with his Allied co-star, Marion Cotillard, in LA on Wednesday evening.
The 52-year-old, who looked noticeably slimmer, opted for a simple black suit, a white shirt and sported grey stubble.
A pregnant Marion oozed style in a chic, floor-length navy dress and a slick of red lipstick. Her brunette locks were left out with a romantic wave and she finished off her look with a pair of statement earrings.
Brad happily posed up for selfies with fans and admitted he was blown away by the love and support he's received since his divorce new broke.
"It's really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here. It's really nice to have all the support," Brad told E! News.
This marks Brad's first red carpet event since his divorce from Angelina Jolie was announced back in September.
On Tuesday, Brad made his first outing since the split news as he attended the private screening for Moonlight alongside his good friend, Julia Roberts.
The father-of-six's latest outing comes as he was officially cleared of child abuse allegations against his 15-year-old son Maddox.
Sources speaking to ET revealed there was insufficient evidence to proceed with a case. "It wasn't clearly founded that there was any abuse by Pitt," an insider told the publication.
The duo were rumoured to have had an affair, but Marion vehemently denied the shock allegations.
Marion, who is pregnant with her second child, looked stunning in a navy gown.
Supportive fans were thrilled to see Brad back!
The incident reportedly occurred on a private jet in September. Angelina's team have released a statement to ET over the matter.
"The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children," her statement explained.
"Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal."

In the film, Marion and Brad play a husband and wife in the '40s.
Now and then: The stress of the past few months have clearly taken their toll on Brad, pictured on the right in June this year.
The Paramount Pictures film Allied is set in 1942 and follows intelligence officer Max Vatan, played by Brad, who falls in love French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour, played by Marion, during a dangerous mission to North Africa.
They marry but their relationship is tested when Max realises his wife could be a Nazi spy.
While critics have praised the pair’s on-screen chemistry, last month their bond was thrown into the limelight after reports alleged Brad and Marion had an affair, which promoted Angelina Jolie to file for divorce.
At the time French actress Marion, who is pregnant with her second child to partner Guillaume Canet, vehemently denied the allegations via social media.
"This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up," the actress posted to Instagram.
"Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need."
Marion and Guillaume already share a five-year-old son called Marcel.
Brad happily took selfies with fans.
This marks his first red carpet event since splitting with Angie.
