5 OCTOBER 2007

There was an easy harmony in evidence as on-screen couples enjoyed red carpet reunions on both US coasts this week. Joaquin Phoenix and Jamie Foxx received a warm reception from the leading ladies of their respective flicks.

At the LA premiere of Reservation Road, Joaquin came in for an embrace from a satin-clad Jennifer Connelly, who looked thrilled to be back in her hunky co-star's company. The pair play husband and wife in the new drama which follows the tale of two families whose worlds are turned upside down by a tragic accident.

On the other side of the continent, Jennifer Garner was giving an equally enthusiastic reception to screen pal Jamie at a New York screening of action thriller The Kingdom. In the flick, the actress - a vision in purple on the night - plays a member of Jamie's elite FBI squad. Together they travel to Saudi Arabia on a secret mission to catch a terrorist bomber.
