(CNN)Brad Pitt appears to be fully back.

The star has been mostly MIA since his announced split from wife Angelina Jolie in September.
    On Tuesday he made an appearance in Los Angeles at a screening for the film "Moonlight" and Wednesday attended an event for his new film, "Allied."

    For the film, Pitt said he struggled to learn French, his co-star's native language.
    "According to Marion, not so good," he said about his linguistic skills. "I say I'm going to get this language, but it may take a lifetime.
    The movie premiere occurred the same day Pitt was cleared of any wrongdoing in a child abuse investigation regarding an alleged incident involving one of his six children with Jolie.
    "Allied" is set to open in theaters November 23.
