Russell Crowe and his wife Danielle Spencer have been spotted enjoying a cosy dinner date, months after it was reported that they were separating.
Rumours of the Aussie couple's split first surfaced last October when the Sydney Morning Herald reported that their nine year marriage was over, with the break up said to be amicable.
It looks like things are more than amicable though as the 49-year-old Oscar winner and his wife were spotted enjoying a relaxing evening with their sons, Charles, 8 and Tennyson, 6. and some friends in the US last Thursday.
The group were spotted sharing a meal at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills outside in the restaurant's courtyard. According to fellow restaurant-goers, Russell and Danielle "were both talking to their kids and being attentive."

The onlooker added to Us Weekly that despite the cosy atmosphere Russell and his wife refrained from any PDA. The couple "were sitting next to each other and seemed to get along well -- but were never affectionate."
Later in the evening, after the children had left the table, the pair were spotted chatting with another couple in a "loud conversation," with Crowe "smoking a cigarette and talking very animatedly, [seemingly] about politics."
Russell and Danille never actually addressed the 2012 split rumours, but a telling tweet from the Les Miserables star in December seemed to hint at problems, bought on by Russell's hectic career.
"As soon as I finish this job and can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together," the Man of Steel actor wrote, referring to shooting Winter's Tale in New York City and traveling to promote Les Mis.
"I need to go home & be with my children. Cannot believe how f--ked up my schedule has become this year."
As well as long distance woes, the split rumours were fuelled after speculation that Danielle had grown close with her Dancing With The Stars partner Damien Whitewood.
The latest sighting of the pair comes as the family enjoy a family holiday in LA, giving Russell a break from his Man of Steel duties which have taken up his time in recent weeks.
The family were spotted jetting out of Sydney on Thursday, with Russell and Danielle later spotted at Bloomingdale's in LA, getting stuck into a spot of shopping before their dinner.
