Jen and Justin showed the world they're still going strong when they packed on the PDA at an event Monday night in New York City.

Although Jennifer Aniston, 45, and Justin Theroux, 42, are constantly bedeviled by break-up rumors, the couple looked very much in love when they stepped out publically together for the first time in nine months at the premiere of his latest project, the HBO series The Leftovers.

The duo, who have been engaged for nearly two years, have shied away from the limelight lately. However, the usually private Theroux gave his real life leading lady a sweet shout out on the red carpet. The Leftovers takes place in the wake of a Rapture-like event, and Aniston’s fiancé was asked what he would hate to leave behind if he was involved in a similar situation. His answer: Jennifer.

"That's who I'd want to bring back. That's who I'd want to bring with me," he said of his longtime love. Theroux also told reporters that "it's great" to have her as such a supportive partner.

Aniston appeared in one of her beloved LBDs — a shirt and skirt ensemble that came down mid-thigh and allowed her to flaunt her gorgeous gams. She accessorized the outfit with a black velvet belt, a gold watch, gold hoop diamond earrings, studded heels, and her stunning engagement ring. She also sported just the right amount of cleavage to keep things classy and yet show the photographers that she's still got it.

The simple yet elegant look allowed Theroux to shine as the star of the night. He looked dapper in a Dior Homme navy wool two-button slim-lapel suit and white button down shirt, sans tie. He topped off the look with a gold clip at his shirt top while sporting his signature scruff and slicked back hair.

The engaged pair haven't been seen together often as of late, but they made it clear that they're still an item by acting extremely affectionately towards one another. She posted on the red carpet with her arms tightly around his waist and touching him affectionately. They arrived to the event hand-in-hand.

Aniston and Theroux began dating in May 2011 and announced their engagement in August 2012. Their last carpet appearance was at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2013. They were last photographed together in L.A. in April.

Fans can expect to see Jen back on the big screen — and presumably her and Theroux on the red carpet — when she reprises one of her more outrageous roles, that of sex-crazed dentist Julia for Horrible Bosses 2 in November.
