She and a bunch of friends were out at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont Saturday night, and insiders say she seemed distant and sad. Understandable, really.

One onlooker said: "She wasn't her feisty little self. If I could describe her energy in one word, I would say 'defeated.' Eva was smiling and even laughing at times, but it was so apparent that underneath it all she was sad and hurt. It was very obvious. She had a grin on her face, but every so often she would stare off into space and looked very sad and somber.”
Despite her sadness, Eva and Tony – who married in July 2007 – are attempting to keep their divorce civil and were even spotted having lunch together last week, with pals saying they met to “work out the details” of their split.
It was recently claimed that the 35-year-old star’s close pal Victoria Beckham had urged all their friends to rally round and support the actress through her heartbreak. A source said: "Victoria has rounded all the girl troops in their inner clique so they can have some girly time and relax. She has given her some sexy VB dresses to cheer her up and is planning a night out for Eva with all their celeb friends."
