The actress (with Friends with Money costar Frances McDormand) "is not working full-steam ahead," says an industry source. "Her schedule is civil." Pitt (at the Jan. 15 tsunami-relief telethon) "is doing great. [Jennifer] is doing great. That's the truth," says producer pal Jerry Weintraub. "I talk to them all the time."

No midnight ice cream runs. No post-breakup sweatpants. No puffy eyes – at least not in front of the cameras. Rather, in the wake of their Jan. 7 separation shocker, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have proceeded to act a lot like they did while they were married: They've each been working (on different continents) and even wearing their respective wedding bands. There was Pitt – wedding ring on display – doing his rat-pack shtick with pal George Clooney while promoting Ocean's Twelve
in Japan on Jan. 13.
And there was Aniston, smiling broadly – ring also on hand – as she left the Los Angeles set of her new gal-pal comedy-drama Friends with Money
on Jan. 12. "She was very up and almost bubbly," says a source who spotted her during shooting. That's a dramatic difference, though, from the last time the former superweds were seen together in public. On Jan. 8, the day after announcing their split, they grimly departed the St. Maarten airport at the conclusion of a Caribbean getaway. Preparing to return to L.A., a visibly distraught Aniston "was wiping tears from her face," says an observer.
