Seventeen Magazine has released an exclusive interview with Ashley Greene, in which she dishes on dating, her famous exes and ‘Breaking Dawn’.
The Funniest Part Of Filming The Final Movie
“We secretly coordinated a dance-off during a scene! We were all in on it, but [director] Bill Condon didn’t know. [All the vampires] were supposed to charge at each other and destroy each other, but instead we just started dancing! Everyone did it—the Cullen clan and probably 20 vampire extras! It was such an amazing way to end it all.”
On Her Famous Exes
“I certainly have [been in love]. I can still love an ex as a person, regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well.”
Her Thoughts On Rob & Kristen
“Hopefully it won’t taint [the movie] and people will still be able to enjoy it. I think a lot of people see us as our characters. I really want them to still be able to do that.”
Where She Worked As A Teen
“When I was 15, I worked at a dry cleaner because I wanted Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. My mom told me I could have $20 jeans, not $70 jeans, unless I was willing to work for them. So I did! I got a job so I could buy the clothes that I wanted. I also worked in a corporate office as a phone operator—I’ve worked literally everywhere in Jacksonville, FL and L.A. One of the places I worked in L.A. was the Roosevelt Hotel!”
How She Describes Her Style
“I have a very classic take on fashion. I like my accessories to pop, but in general, my style is pretty classic.”
Her Thoughts On Dating
“I’ve definitely been in relationships where I’ve given too much, and I’ve been in relationships where I haven’t given enough. I think it’s a work in progress. I have to find that person where it clicks.”
With her new movie “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ set to hit theaters on November 16th, Ashley Greene pitched in on promotions by covering the December 2012 issue of British GQ magazine. The 25-year-old actress put her assets on display by donning a black bikini top for the Benny Horne shot front page while opening up about missing her hometown boyfriend to her current dating situation.
On missing her hometown boyfriend:
Dating is a hard, hard thing when you have this job. Sometimes I wish I could just go back to Florida and, like, date my home-town boyfriend.
On why dating in Hollywood is complicated:
When I’m dating a guy and he says, ‘I don’t want press’, and then says, ‘Let’s go to Katana for dinner’ – I’m like, ‘Really? You don’t want to just walk down the street to some dive? You don’t want to get photographed but you want to go to a place where you know there’s paparazzi?’

With her new movie “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ set to hit theaters on November 16th, Ashley Greene garnered herself a little early exposure by covering the November 2012 issue of Marie Claire magazine.
The 25-year-old actress looked gorgeous in Dolce & Gabbana for the Tesh shot front page while dishing about everything from balancing work and play and how “Twilight” catapulted her career. Highlights from Miss Greene’s interview are as follows.
On being on the celebrity fast track:
It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day. But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk. After the movie [Twilight] came out, some people said, ‘You changed.’ And I said, ‘I haven’t changed, dude. Your opinion of me has changed because I’m working on this film.’ Trust me, my parents would let me know.
On the challenge of focusing on both career and personal life:
I’m always here and there – everyone in my industry is – and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting. I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish. You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.
On traveling first-class for Twilight and being a working actress:
Twilight has ruined me. When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost. I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.
With just over a month remaining until the November “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ theatrical debut, Ashley Greene garnered herself a little overseas exposure by covering the October 2012 issue of Women’s Health South Africa. Highlights from Miss Greene’s interview are as follows.
On getting her start in acting:
I knew I was never going to make a big as a model, so acting was something I thought I should try. I made a deal with my parents that if I stayed out of trouble and didn’t have to borrow too much money, they’d let me keep auditioning instead of coming back to Florida to go to college.
On “Twilight” coming to an end:
I have a lot of mixed emotions. This has been a huge chunk of the past five years of my life and it’s given me an incredible platform and fan base. It’s also scary to realize that I have to make the most my opportunity so I can make my mark in other films. So there’s that kind of anxiety, but also the sadness and nostalgia that comes with knowing I’m going to miss all the actors and crew.
On her career of evolvement:
I’m at the point where I’m able to go for the big roles every top actress wants to play. It’s a whole other level for me now, but I’m ambitious and I think I have the talent to make it. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else can make it happen for you.
I’ve been really busy with my personal life the last few weeks and in a mean time Ashley has been busy as well gracing covers and getting features in magazines including Esquire, Cosmopolitan and Nylon.
Bringing her stylish ways to another front page, Ashley Greene adorns the cover of the March 2012 issue of Lucky.
The 24-year-old Alice Cullen cutie posed for a playful spread shot by Ruven Afanador while talking with the magazine about getting her start in Tinseltown and life after “Twilight”.
On life after Twilight: Twilight has given me something to skyrocket off of. But now that it’s ending, there’s so much work to be done. And if I don’t do it, then Twilight’s all I’m ever going to be known for, as great as it is… Basically I went from ‘dying to get a gig’ to ‘dying to get the gig that everyone wants.’ So now I’m in this realm with a lot of highly respected actresses, which is an amazing place to be, but also kind of terrifying.
On getting her start in acting: My mother put me in modeling classes because I had low self-esteem. I was friends with older people, so I was always around someone more mature who boys responded to. I think that kind of messed with me… She never actually wanted me to be a model; she just wanted me to feel good about myself. But then there was a chain reaction. All of a sudden I wanted to be an actor, and of course, my mother was like, ‘Oh, great, what did I do?’
On her type of guy: What’s most attractive to me is someone who has the same amount of drive as I do, someone who’s equally passionate about what they do, and equally busy. But I think that would be a tall order.
Garnering a feature in yet another publication, Ashley Greene adorns the pages of the year-ending December 2011 issue of Company Magazine UK.
The Alice Cullen actress opened up with the magazine about a range of topics including the “Twilight” experience, making it in Tinseltown and how she likes to spend her free time.
Highlights from Ashley’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Company!
On the best thing about the “Twilight” experience: To work with incredible directors is like a crash course for acting. And we [the cast] have all become a family so it has been nice, personally and as an actor, to learn and grow with these people, and to have someone to relate to who is in the same circumstances. The amount of attention and insanity surrounding those films changed all our lives. But it happened to us together and it’s had a tremendous effect on how close we are now.
On the difficulty of making it in Hollywood: It has always been hard, but it is now very competitive. It’s hard to break out, and it is still hard for me – I am fighting for my next job. Nothing is set in stone. So you have to really love acting to go through that grind every day. But once you get a role, it’s worth it.
On her dream role: A couple of projects have caught my eye. I want to do another action film because I had a ton of fun when we did stunt work [on Breaking Dawn]. We did fight training and personal training – we worked our butts off and pretty much did every stunt we possibly could ourselves.
On what she does for fun: I like to shop; I like fashion. I like things that are not too super-girly but have a feminine twist. And I’m excited by amazing dresses! It’s nice because, in everyday life, I like to be comfortable and put together, but on the red carpet, I love being glamorous. The whole dressing up thing is every girl’s fantasy.
Adding to her numerous current cover gigs, Ashley Greene brightens up the front page of Flare magazine’s December 2011 issue.
The “Twilight” actress looks radiant in a dress by Marchesa and earrings and a ring by Laruicci as she posed for a spread shot by Max Abadian while poolside at a private residence in Beverly Hills.

On wearing trends: “I think trends are dangerous. Just because it’s a trend doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work on you, and I think that’s where a lot of fashion mistakes are made. People just go with what’s hot and what’s hip. And for me, things overwhelm me easily so I have to be really specific about what I wear.”
On the Canadian impact on her wardrobe: “In Vancouver, I found my favorite store on the face of the planet – Aritzia. Every time I filmed there, I’d basically clean out the store. It was a nice thing because they only had it in Canada, but now it’s also in New York. I feel that’s going to get me into a lot of trouble.”
On fashion tips she’s learned along the way: “I’ve certainly learned that every woman has a different body type so you have to learn to love yourself and work with what you have. If you were born with an athletic figure, you’re never going to have Scarlett Johansson’s body. Once you get past that, you become a lot happier in your clothes decisions and with yourself.”
On Alice’s (of the Twilight saga) clairvoyant powers: “It sounds really cool but I think it would drive me crazy, honestly. It kind of takes away the mystery of life a little bit. I think I would just drive myself absolutely insane trying to stop things from happening.”
On a favorite red carpet moment: “Prabal Gurung had a red dress that I wore to the New Moon premiere, and it was floor length, a very simple silhouette, had a tiny bit of a train in the back. When I wore that, I think I felt, for the first time, like a movie star.”
On her next move: “Right now I’m just reading a lot [of scripts], trying to figure out what the next move is going to be. I feel like everyone’s kind of watching and waiting saying ‘What are these kids going to do?’ So I’m just taking full advantage of being able to take things at a very steady pace and figure them out as I go.”
On her off-camera style: “I’m obviously a really huge fan of showing off your figure, but still being feminine and classy. I think there’s something to be said for keeping something to the imagination.”
On helping the costume designers with Alice’s bridesmaid dress: “I wanted Alice’s past incorporated into her dress a little bit. She’s from the 1920s and 1930s, so we kind of kept that in mind.”
