Brad Pitt smiled for photographers and signed autographs during his first red carpet event since his split from Angelina Jolie in September.

Pitt attended a fan screening of his new World War II thriller, Allied, at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday, where he walked the red carpet, sans wedding ring, looking happy and healthy in a crisp, black suit jacket with a white button down and no tie.

The 52-year-old star also stopped for a Facebook Live interview, streamed on the Allied Facebook page, where he opened up about appearing in the action-packed film, which is modeled visually on the style of classic Hollywood films, and which iconic Tinseltown star inspired his character the most.

"I found myself watching a lot of Joseph Cotton," said Pitt, referring to the iconic leading man of the 1940s, who starred in the post-World War II noir drama The Third Man and the legendary Citizen Kane.

Pitt's co-star, Marion Cotillard, also walked the red carpet at the fan event, and had an equally iconic source of inspiration: four-time Oscar nominee Greta Garbo.

However, the 41-year-old French actress also credited Hollywood royalty like Ingrid Bergman, Katherine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn, calling them "amazing, strong powerful women [who were] also very sensitive and [who gave] amazing performances."

Cotillard rocked her baby bump while smiling for her fans, wearing a chic, flowing dark blue sleeveless gown. The actress and her longtime partner, French filmmaker Guillaume Canet, announced they were expecting their second child in September.
