<p><span></span><strong>Brad Pitt</strong> and <strong>Angelina Jolie</strong> hadn't appeared in public since the British newspaper News of the World announced on Jan. 24 that they were splitting up. But the duo, who had skipped such esteemed awards shows as the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January, apparently felt they couldn't afford to lie low and ignore the split rumors anymore. </p>
So on Jan. 30, they decided to attend the 62nd Annual Director's Guild of America Awards to send a message: We are definitely still a couple. Sitting at a table with Brad's Inglourious Basterds director, Quentin Tarantino, Brad and Angie cuddled their way through the ceremony at LA's Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. "They laughed and joked," a fellow guest tells Life & Style. "There was plenty of affection and physical intimacy -- pats on the back, rubbing each other's arms. They seemed in good form."
And they got dolled up. Angelina wore a green Elie Saab gown and a partial updo by hairstylist David Babaii, while Brad sported a two-piece Tom Ford suit. But they didn't hit the red carpet together or pose for pictures as a couple, presumably to keep attention focused on the directors being honored.
