Angelina Jolie had lunch – sans Brad Pitt or their children – at Public at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Tuesday afternoon.
While the actress recently spoke about her "very grounded home," she "beamed" as she joined four women and one man at a corner booth near the bar for a mid-day meal.
The actress-turned-director looked "stunning in a long black fitted coat, a Louis Vuitton tote and her hair down," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked breathtaking with no makeup on."
As the group enjoyed a "carefree" lunch, Jolie was smiling and "seemed really comfortable and totally peaceful. Just having a nice lunch," the source adds.

Cecconi's in West Hollywood was the site of a celebrity date night as Audi kicked off Golden Globes week with a star-studded bash on Sunday.
Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts arrived holding hands and spent the evening cozied up in one corner of the restaurant's covered patio, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
With Schreiber sipping on a glass of red wine with one arm draped adoringly around the beaming Watts's waist, the duo couldn't look any more in love.
The couple later caught up with actress Kate Bosworth and her fiancé, director Michael Polish, with Schreiber only breaking away to cross the crowded room and greet a late-arriving, Connie Britton, who was resplendent in an off-the-shoulder floor-length red gown.

Who knew Neil Patrick Harris and Barney Stinson had so much in common?
The actor got in touch with his magical side (just like his How I Met Your Mother alter ego) at the Academy of Magical Arts's 50th anniversary celebration at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. Harris, who presides over the organization's board of directors, rushed back from vacation in Montana just to be in town for the festivities.
While toasting the organization, the actor mingled with other guests and magicians, including Siegfried Fischbacher of Siegfried & Roy, and talked about how much he loved magic as a kid, a source tells PEOPLE.
"He wanted to know the secrets that no one would share with him, so he became a magician himself," the source adds. Indeed; Harris joined AMA's junior academy as a child (he even had to audition!) and often performs at the Magic Castle. – Melody Chiu

After celebrating at the GQ Men of the Year bash in Hollywood on Tuesday, Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul hit up hotspot Bootsy Bellows with a group of guy friends.
The actor and his pals arrived around 1:30 a.m. and hung out in the back VIP room, opting to party on the dance floor instead of at a table. Paul got "incredibly excited" when the DJ spun Michael Jackson's "Thiller," a source tells PEOPLE, and afterward, ran out of the VIP room, returning soon after with Pat Benatar's daughter, Haley Giraldo. The two seemed like old friends and danced to Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" before Paul, who sipped on vodka cocktails throughout the evening, rocked out to the Four Tops hit "It's the Same Old Song."
Though Paul was without his fiancée, Lauren Parsekian, he "seemed really jovial and excited to be out with his boys all night," the source says. The guys had so much fun that they stayed until the lights came on and the club was closing.

While walking the red carpet, Cannon was anything but shy about answering questions about his wife Mariah Carey's feud with American Idol co-judge Nicki Minaj.
"He kept using her full name when he referenced Mariah," the source adds. "It was almost like he was a fan as opposed to her husband."

Miley Cyrus made a return to one of her favorite spots, Beacher's Madhouse at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, with a group of friends on Wednesday.
The starlet arrived around 11:30 p.m., wearing distressed high-waisted jeans and a crop top, and grabbed her usual front-row table. Even though fiancé Liam Hemsworth wasn't with her (he's currently away filming the next installment of The Hunger Games), Cyrus managed to have fun, smiling and laughing with her pals and hitting the dance floor for songs like "Don't You (Forget About Me)" and "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang."
When she wasn't dancing, Cyrus was enjoying the action on stage, which included a man in a bubble and a performance by a mini Nicki Minaj. She eventually closed down the hotspot with her pals.

Dancing – and gaming? – with the stars?
Bristol Palin, Gilles Marini, Karina Smirnoff, Jef Holm, Holly Madison and more celebrated the launch of Ubisoft's Just Dance 4 at Lexington Social House in Hollywood on Tuesday.
Fresh off the set of Dancing with the Stars , Marini challenged fellow all-stars contestant Palin to a dance off, but she refused.
"No! He'll beat me! Gilles has the best moves!" she said.
Bachelorette winner Holm was more than up for a challenge! He took on both DWTS' Karina Smirnoff and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson.
Although he attended the event without fiancé Emily Maynard, he assured everyone their relationship remains strong despite breakup rumors.
"Jef said he and Emily are extremely happy and the rumors are false," an onlooker said.
A pregnant Madison also got in on the fun and was overheard talking about possible baby names.
"The names she and boyfriend Pasquale Rotella are debating are definitely unconventional," a source says. "But they're straying away from anything trendy or common most people would choose."
