Greene ‘doing okay’ after house fire

Ashley Greene reveals she has immersed herself in charity work after her apartment was destroyed in a fire nearly two months ago.

Ashley Greene is “exploring new opportunities” following her devastating house fire.

The Twilight star’s Los Angeles apartment was destroyed in an inferno in March.

Ashley takes her mind off the tragedy by immersing herself in charity work.

During the Runway to Hope Spring Fashion Soiree, an event that benefits pediatric cancer research, Ashley reveals why philanthropy is so important to her.

“Obviously, I’ve had a rough few months, but I’m doing okay,” she told People magazine. "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.”

Professionally Ashley is ready to move on from her supernatural past.

Ashley is unlikely to be sucking blood onscreen as a vampire in the future.

“If I’ve been getting vampire offers, my management hasn’t been sending them to me,” she laughed. “We agreed that, unless a vampire role is spectacular, I just can’t do it.”

Ashley reveals she and the rest of the Twilight cast see each other on red carpets most of the time.

She attempts to communicate with her pals as often as possible.

“I still try to keep up with everyone, but we don’t see each other as much as we’d like to,” Ashley explained.

“And then there’s always Skype! I chatted with Kellan Lutz the other day and he was in Bulgaria!"
