Demi Moore is doing better than most people think.

At least so says one of her good pals...

"I just saw her and she's doing great," director Patty Jenkins just told me at the Directors Guild Awards in Hollywood. "I think she's doing much better than it's made out to be."

Jenkins continued, "Demi is awesome and so strong. I also hate when people make it a bigger drama than what is going on. She's great."

Moore and Jenkins are nominated along with Jennifer Aniston, Penelope Spheeris and Alicia Keys for their Lifetime movie Five, an anthology film of women coping with breast cancer.

"Demi blew me away," Jenkins said. "She has the chops to be a real director...I said to her, 'You're a director, my friend.'"
