Single hunk Ethan Hawke proved he's getting over his split from Uma Thurman by partying it up in Los Angeles with a mystery brunette.

The Before Sunset actor - who separated from Thurman in September last year (03) - flew out of the movie capital to attend a script reading but was soon at the city's SUNSET MARQUIS HOTEL with DEAD POET'S SOCIETY pal JOSH CHARLES.

And, as the two men enjoyed a boozy night out together, they were joined by two mystery brunettes who accompanied them back to Hawke's one-bedroom bungalow after the bar closed.

The party finally broke up at 5am when the two women were spotted leaving Hawke's property before he headed back to New York to watch a performance of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING in Central Park.
