Washington, Jun 4 : Cocktail waitress Sarah Larson is definitely "moving forward" after her split from George Clooney, says a pal.
Clooney, 47, split up with 29-year-old Larson last month after dating her for about a year.
"From what we've talked about she's doing well," People mag quoted Jennifer Morss, executive director of Aid for AIDS of Nevada and a friend of Larson's, as telling.
"You just move forward. She's a strong, very smart girl who I think will make it through pretty much anything," Morss said.
Morss said that what was making it easier for Larson was that she had never let life in the limelight affect her.
"Your whole life changes overnight, but she maintained that down-to-earth [quality]. She as a person never changed - she would say, 'Yes, I'm dating George, but I want to be known for Sarah'," Morss stated.
Morss praised Larson, for being involved with the Aid for AIDS of Nevada charity for about four years.
"This past AIDS walk held in April, she raised over ,000 for the event through friends ... It's hard in this world to find people who are so authentic," she added.
Regarding Larson's future, Morss says her friend will be just fine even after she has split from Clooney.
"She's still Sarah, and she maintained all of her relationships with friends and family. When you don't change to go into something like that, there's not a whole lot of change to come out of it," Morss said.
