Hanks a lot!

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson enjoyed a live performance of Room 105 – The Highs and Lows of Janis Joplin at the MACHA Theater in West Hollywood on Sunday.

Sporting a mustache, Hanks and Wilson entered the theater from the parking lot side entrance just before the show began, avoiding the lobby, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

The couple then took their seats – stopping to chat with the older couple sitting behind them.

"Wilson clapped vigorously after each song but Hanks was much more reserved with his applause," the source adds. "There was no hand holding or major interaction between the two during the show."

But "both took part in the standing ovation" and as the couple left the theater, an elderly woman told Hanks "I love you." "He gave her a hug and spoke with her briefly before leaving," the source says.

Pink took a break from mommy duties to perform at Sony Studios in Culver City,Calif., benefitting the Margie Petersen Breast Center at Saint John's Health Center on Monday.

The "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" singer wore a black long-sleeved top and a black leather skirt to perform an 11-song set. The star-studded audience included Heather Locklear, Valerie Bertinelli, Melanie Griffith and Rita Wilson.

"It's been a while since I sang. I'm usually in sweatpants singing 'Shoo Fly, Don't Bother Me,'" joked the mother of 17-month-old old Willow.

Earlier in the night, Locklear and Bertinelli were seen sitting together and chatting in the VIP area close to the stage.

Guests at the event enjoyed hors d'oeuvres by Wolfgang Puck, including tuna tartare, crab cakes, mini sliders, and fire-roasted eggplant tarts, as well as cocktails and Stella Artois.

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my Friends!

Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux stepped out for a cozy dinner with Courteney Cox at the Sunset Tower Hotel's Tower Bar on Monday.

"Jennifer looked adorable!" an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked so pulled together and very chic. She was dressed casually, but in heels."

Aniston recently returned to L.A. during a break from filming We're the Millers in North Carolina with Jason Sudeikis.

"They were very calm and carrying on a regular dinner conversation," the source adds. "Jennifer had a big smile on her face. She and Justin both looked very happy."

It was the first time Aniston and Theroux have been seen out together since their Aug. 12 engagement.

The Sunset Tower holds fond memories for the couple. It's where Aniston and Theroux were first spotted out together publicly when they shared a three-hour casual dinner back in May 2011.

After dinner, the trio greeted designer Tom Ford, seated at a nearby table with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson – who double dated with Aniston and Theroux last April – and several others. Ford was celebrating his 51st birthday.
