Courteney Cox and estranged husband David Arquette embraced on the red carpet at the premiere of Scream 4 in Los Angeles and happily posed for pictures together.
The couple, who have a six-year-old daughter Coco, fell in love filming the first Scream film almost 15 years ago but last October announced they were separating after 11 years of marriage.
Wes Craven's fourth instalment in the Scream franchise premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood with Courteney, David and co-star Neve Campbell attending, along with the new young cast of the sequel - Anna Paquin, Hayden Panettiere, Kristen Bell, Mary Shelton and Sheae Grimes.
David, 39, told a US radio show his relationship with Courteney, 46, was "better than ever" despite the split.
He said: "It was shot during the summer and yes we were together but there were talks of a separation. But she was only filming for the first few weeks and then I stayed for a lot longer.
"We both took a moment to look at our relationship and if we were happy and what was going on. It was time for us to ask some questions. And for me I used it in a bad way to act out and shake my world up - because I was heartbroken.
"I believe in learning from your mistakes and I had to go there to come back and look at my self and look at my life."
He added: "We're not together, we're still separated and there's horrible articles about us right now. There's no scandal, we're really honest and open with each other. We care about each other.
"Our relationship right now is actually better than ever."
