Cast member Brad Pitt poses on the red carpet after the screening of the film "Killing Them Softly", in competition at the 65th Cannes Film Festival, May 22, 2012.

The 52-year-old actor attended his first public red carpet event since splitting from wife Angelina Jolie in September alongside co-star Marion Cotillard - at the premiere of his new movie 'Allied' in Los Angeles on Wednesday (09.11.16).

And Brad - who wasn't wearing his wedding ring - spent a lot of time signing autographs for fans, and was grateful for their “kindness” as he spoke with them.

He told E! News: “It's really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here.

“It's really nice to have all the support.”

Brad's appearance came the same day the Los Angeles County Department Of Children And Family Services (DCFS) cleared him of child abuse allegations following weeks of extensive investigations into claims he had struck his 15-year-old son Maddox on board a private jet in late September while under the influence of alcohol.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that it has been decided the 'Fury' star had not physically or emotionally harmed Maddox when they allegedly got into a war of words on their private jet.

Now that the investigation has been closed and he has been cleared of the allegations, Brad should have a better chance in his bitter custody war with estranged wife Angelina Jolie, 41.

The actress - who married the hunk two years ago - filed for divorce from Brad just days after the jet incident and asked for sole physical custody of their children Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

The premiere was the actor's second public appearance this week, as he also attended a private screening of 'Moonlight' - which is produced by his Plan B company - alongside his friend Julia Roberts on Tuesday November 08.
