Love lost between Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter? No way.
Hall, 41, clutched Carpenter’s arm as the pair grabbed coffee before heading to the beach to watch the sun set. Once there, the actor pulled his ex-wife in for an embrace.
“He is and always will be one of my best friends in the world. Just because the marriage ended doesn’t mean the love isn’t still there,” Carpenter, 32, told Today last October. “We take very good care of each other … we always have. I’m just really lucky.”
This isn’t the first time the former lovebirds have been spotted looking especially sweet post-split. At the PEOPLE/Entertainment Industry Foundation SAG Awards Bash last month, the seemingly upbeat pair was by each other’s side throughout the night while mingling with mutual pals.
But don’t get your hopes up for a reconciliation – after another java fix was caught on camera in January, a source told PEOPLE, “Jennifer and Michael are friends. They spend time together. They work together. It was not romantic.”
