Two months after losing her beloved fox terrier in an apartment fire, Twilight's Ashley Greene has found a surefire way to move forward with her loss: shifting her focus to helping others.
"Obviously, I've had a rough few months, but I'm doing okay," she tells PEOPLE. "I'm exploring new opportunities, and I try to participate in charity events as much as possible."
"It's very important to me to focus on others, not just myself. You look at children with cancer and you think, 'Wow, it really puts my own problems into perspective.' Not to say that what we all go through isn't important, but there are people who have much greater problems that they deal with every day."

Kristen Stewart let loose with pals on Friday night in Los Angeles.
Hitting up El Arco Iris restaurant for some Mexican food and fun, the former Twilight star was joined by a group of male and female friends, and they ordered a big bowl of chicken soup, a pitcher of the strawberry margarita and a pitcher of the house special margarita.
"Kristen and her friends did a tequila shot," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "The staff said that Kristen was super sweet and was very thankful and even took photos with them."
Dressed casually in jeans and a white T-shirt, the actress wore her hair wavy and down and flashed a peace sign in a photo that was taken at the eatery.

When Breaking Dawn: Part 2 opens this week, Ashley Greene hopes fans can concentrate on the big screen action – and forget about the off-screen drama surrounding the film's two main stars.
Of course, over the last several months Twi-hards have been enthralled with the ups and downs of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's all-too-real breakup due to her cheating scandal and eventual reconciliation.
Asked if she thinks audiences will be affected by the couple's issues, Greene, 25, tells Seventeen, "I don’t know. Hopefully, it won’t taint it and people will still be able to enjoy the movie. I think a lot of people see us as our characters; I really want them to still be able to do that."

Kristen Stewart is not particularly sentimental about wrapping up years of playing Bella Swan in the Twilight series – but she is saving a few souvenir items from the films.
"I kept the rings. The rings are really important to me," Stewart said in Beverly Hills at Thursday's press day for Breaking Dawn: Part 2, which opens Nov. 16.
One of the baubles comes from when Bella's "mother gives her a moon ring in the beginning," says Stewart. "It fully and completely reminds me of [Twilight director] Catherine Hardwicke."

They're back on! Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have gotten back together, several sources confirm to PEOPLE.
The Twilight pair – who play Edward Cullen and Bella Swan – broke up after Stewart admitted in July to having a brief fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.
After some time apart, Stewart, 22, and Pattinson, 26, met up in Los Angeles over the weekend of Sept. 15 in L.A., and began spending more and more time together.
Now they are officially a couple again. And Pattinson has decided not to sell the L.A. home that he and Stewart shared, according to a source.

Robert Pattinson stepped out with friends to see The Black Keys perform at The Sayers Club in Hollywood on Sunday.
Dressed casually in a blue button-down, short-sleeved shirt and a backwards baseball cap, Pattinson arrived just before the show started at 9 p.m.
Despite the drama surrounding his relationship with Twilight costar Kristen Stewart, Pattinson couldn't have looked happier as he chatted with male pals including The Master actor Rami Malek, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
"He had a smile plastered across his face during the entire show," the source adds. "He bobbed his head to almost every song. When he wasn't rocking out he sipped on beer and spent time texting."
After the show ended at 10 p.m., the Cosmopolis star stayed at the club, enjoying beers and posed for photos with 98.7 deejay Kennedy.
"Pattinson seemed amused by her and was laughing a lot throughout their conversation," the source says.
