Is Diane Lane feeling sad after her split from husband Josh Brolin? Neigh! On Tuesday, Feb. 27, the Oscar-nominated actress resurfaced for the first time since Us Weekly broke news of her plans to divorce Brolin last week. Her big night out was spent with Hollywood pals Laura Dern and Mary Steenburgen -- and horses!

In an unusual ladies' night, the three actresses were in Burbank, Calif. for the red carpet opening of Cavalia's Odysseo, a $30 million equestrian and acrobatics spectacular. In one hilarious photo, Lane, 48, LOLs alongside Dern, 46, and Steenburgen, 60, as they hang backstage with rider Lara Gabin and horse star Indigo.

Although breaking up is always hard to do, Lane's split with 45-year-old Brolin -- they wed in 2004 after being introduced by his stepmother Barbra Streisand -- was "not ugly," a source told Us Weekly. "They had separate lives," the source says of the pair, kept apart by breakneck shooting schedules. ("He's basically had two weeks off since 2011," the pal says of the Gangster Squad actor.) "They weren't together much."

Indeed, the Man of Steel actress filed her divorce papers on Valentine's Day of this year, but the pal notes that they quietly split in late 2012.
