Brad Pitt made a rare appearance this last Saturday, attending the fourth annual charity ROCK4EB! event at a private home in Malibu, California. The charity event benefited the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation. Pitt, who’s on the group’s board of directors, posed for pictures with children being treated for skin disease.

The event also featured stars like Sting and Chris Cornell, singer for rock band Soundgarden. Sting and Cornell are both good friends of Pitt, and Pitt appeared on stage to introduce both artists.

“I get to introduce a very, very good friend of mine,” Pitt said of Cornell, and called the night a “really special night.”

Pitt appeared to be in great spirits, smiling as he posed for photos with Cornell and Zach Galifianakis.

Pitt’s night out comes four months after he and Angelina Jolie announced their divorce, after having been married for two years, and together for 12. Since the divorce, Pitt attended few events, with the exception of a surprise appearance at the 2017 Golden Globes.

The relationship between the former pair seems a tenuous one; after the divorce, Jolie and Pitt began a custody battle over their six kids. They settled on a temporary solution — she has physical custody of the children, while he has supervised visitation rights.

Just last week, the two released a joint statement stating they “signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues” and “are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”

Last September, when Jolie had filed for divorce, Pitt was accused of child abuse — both physical and verbal — of one of this children. In November, he was cleared of these charges, though the accusations have undoubtedly tainted his reputation.

This appearance at the charity event with old friends seemed to have boosted Pitt’s mood, and may be just what the doctor ordered.
