Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Liberty Ross stepped out on Wednesday night to attend the Los Angeles premiere of Lawless starring Shia LaBeouf.
Dressed in a silky green top, black leggings and ankle boots, the former model glowed as she posed for photos on the red carpet.
"Liberty was in a great mood," a source tells PEOPLE. "She was there to support her friend, [screenwriter] Nick Cave."
Following the screening, Ross attended the afterparty at Eden nightclub presented by DeLeón tequila, where she stayed until about 11:30 PM, having a great time.
Upon leaving the party, Ross was mobbed by paparazzi, eager to get a shot of her enjoying a night out following her husband Rupert Sanders's recent cheating scandal with Kristen Stewart.

Don't believe everything you read.
Following a new report in British newspaper The People (which is owned by the Mirror and not related to PEOPLE magazine) that director Rupert Sanders's affair with Kristen Stewart was more than a one-time fling, a source very close to his wife Liberty Ross and her family tells PEOPLE all quotes from that story are false.
"Contrary to inaccurate reports, neither Liberty Ross nor any member of her family has spoken to the media," the source tells PEOPLE. "Quotes that are being attributed to the Ross family have been completely fabricated."
The People report quotes a man purporting to be Liberty's brother, Leopold Ross, who says, "[Rupert and Kristen's affair took place] from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week."
Editors at The People stand by their story. Sources have maintained to PEOPLE that the fling between the actress and director was not drawn out.

After their smoldering chemistry in the Twilight films, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson confounded their fans and bewildered prying reporters by keeping their real-life relationship cloaked in secrecy for as long as possible.
So it was Stewart's gut-wrenching apology to Pattinson, punctuated by her double "I love him, I love him," that shocked in its bare expression of emotion nearly as much as her admission of a fling with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman.
So how did Stewart, 22, go from private love to public pain? And were there any signs along the way? Here's a timeline of the key events leading up to the cheating scandal:

Just two weeks before news broke of Kristen Stewart's fling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, his wife spoke of early troubles in their marriage.
"I romanticized domesticity for a while, and loved having a shopping list of groceries stuck to the fridge," actress Liberty Ross told YOU magazine.
"But moving [from London to Los Angeles] and starting a life all over again was a lot harder than I had anticipated. I just didn’t think it would be as isolating and daunting as it turned out to be."

Robert Pattinson has packed his bags.
Following Kristen Stewart's public apology for having a fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, the 26-year-old actor has left the Los Angeles home he shared with Stewart, PEOPLE has confirmed.
"I'm not sure they'll be able to recover from this," a source says of the couple of three years, who met making the Twilight trilogy.
In seclusion and not in contact with Stewart, 22, the British star "is heartbroken and angry," says the source.

Before a cheating scandal rocked the lives of both Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders, the pair spent months together on the sets of Snow White and the Huntsman.
While filming SWATH, Sanders, 41, seemed infatuated with Stewart, 22, but it never went any further, a source tells PEOPLE. One of the reasons could be that Sanders's wife, actress-model Liberty Ross, starred alongside Stewart in the film, playing Snow White's mother. Sanders even cast the couple's two children, Skyla, 7, and Tennyson, 5, as extras in the film's final scene.
But a photo unearthed from May shows Stewart and Sanders enjoying dinner with a small group, which included fellow castmember Charlize Theron, at Berlin's Monsieur Vuong Vietnamese restaurant.

Before Rupert Sanders was the man at the heart of a cheating scandal with Kristen Stewart, he was known in Hollywood as an up and coming British director.
Says one insider, "He is a guy people have been clamoring to work with."
While Sanders's collaboration with Stewart, Snow White and the Huntsman, was his first feature film, chances are you've been watching his work for a long time.
Sanders, 41, made his name in the entertainment industry by directing elaborate big budget commercials. He's created award-winning advertisements for everything from Halo 3 to Monster.com.
Prior to the scandal, he was also known as a family man who fawned over his wife, model Liberty Ross, 33, and their two young children.
