Mel B appeared to have put her differences with Eddie Murphy behind her as she supported him at the world premiere of his latest film.

The pair split four months before the birth of Mel's daughter Angel Iris, three, and the situation worsened when Eddie publicly denied being the father, even though a paternity test later showed the contrary.

Mel raised eyebrows when she arrived with the star to attend the Los Angeles screening of Shrek Forever After, the fourth and final film in the animated series.

However she kept a low-profile on the ogre-green carpet, and ignored waiting reporters, preferring instead to hug and chat with members of Eddie's family.

"It's crowded in the limo!" Eddie joked about the huge family turnout which came to support him.

Despite the fun family atmosphere, co-stars Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz admitted they were emotional about the movie being the last outing for Shrek.

Mike confessed: "We're getting sadder and sadder as we go down the carpet, truthfully."

Cameron too was disappointed that the series had come to its conclusion. "I am sad it's the end," she admitted.

Before being whisked into the screening, Cameron ordered her cast mates to autograph her copy of the script as a lasting reminder of her time on the franchise. "Sign, sign!" she demanded.
