We may have a naughty ticking clock here at the A.T., counting down to when we think Brangelina will call it quits, but that's not happening anytime soon.
Either way, the superstar couple managed to keep all eyes on them as they attended the UNICEF Snowflake Ball honoring producer Jerry Weintraub last night at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel here in Los Angeles.
Angelina Jolie, stunning in a slightly embellished cream gown (really, Ange, way to bring it) was accompanied by life partner Brad Pitt, who was looking a little worse for wear.
So how was the couple interacting? 'Cause, you know, according to the tabs, Brad's thisclose to grabbing the kids and running...
They were "very together," a fellow ball attendee tells us.
"They were holding hands throughout the sit-down dinner, and at one point [Angelina] even sat on [Brad's] lap," a source tells E! The couple was seated at a table with George Clooney, Matt Damon and Bruce Willis, and "they mingled with the crowd but never left each other's sides."
Nothing gets the Brange happier than a good cause. The couple was "all smiles" throughout the evening as they gave several standing ovations after Tony Bennett performed, as Weintraub accepted his Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award and while Muhammad Ali appeared onstage.
But the party didn't stop there for the parents of six.
After dinner, the couple braved the rain to attend an afterparty at Il Piccolino in Beverly Hills.
"They were extremely affectionate with each other, even when nobody was looking," an insider dishes. "Brad kept caressing her back and she kept him very close to her."
Look, for all of you who think we detest Brangelina, you're wrong. They really aren't in a fauxmance like, say, Gyllenspoon, who are only that affectionate for the cameras or Starbucks employees.
We just know Jolie's ways, and don't think B.P. can hold her interest forever. There's a reason they haven't walked down the aisle, you know, which by the way, is the best decision they could ever make. That's why their relaysh is still working.
Even though Brad and Angie were the center of attention, they were surrounded by a good gaggle of A-listers.
Clooney and girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, Damon and wife Luciana, Cindy Crawford and husband Randy Gerber, and Willis and new wife Emma Heming also attended the private party at the small Italian restaurant.
The bash continued until around 2 a.m., when all of the celeb guests had personal umbrella-holders walk them to their waiting cars.
