Justin Theroux Attends Met Gala Solo Nearly Three Months After Split from Jennifer Aniston

The actor stepped out in a classic tuxedo for his second Met Gala appearance

Justin Theroux stepped out solo at Monday night’s Met Gala in N.Y.C., his first red carpet appearance since his split from Jennifer Aniston nearly three months ago.

The actor, 46, hit the carpet in black tux with a leather lapel and white button-down tuxedo shirt worn with the collar up. Theroux last attended the Met Gala in 2010 before he started dating Aniston, who has never attended the event. His first Met Gala appearance was in 2004.

Leading up to the star-studded carpet, Theroux was photographed this weekend with artist-photographer Petra Collins, 25, along with actor Paul Rudd, 49, actress Rooney Mara, 33, and singer Selena Gomez, 25. Although Collins and Theroux have been linked since his split from Aniston, a source tells PEOPLE the two “are friends.”
