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.
13 additional outtakes from the photoshoot Ashley did earlier this year for Lucky Magazine are up in the gallery. Definitely one of my favorite shots of hers! Will update with clearer and bigger version once they become available.
She is a party girl. She’s not a party girl. She is a workaholic. She’s a free spirit. Now that Twilight is ending, she can take her career any way she pleases. She is smart, and she is a woman we love.
She’s telling a story with a punchline, building up to something. But I stop her. It only seems right. Ashley Greene is about to make a joke about the setting of the movie Butter, an indie comedy she stars in with Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman, a film at least tangentially about competitive butter-carving, set in Iowa but filmed for some (visually unjustifiable) reason in Shreveport, Louisiana. She’s leading up to an anywhere-but-here joke about the Midwest. Her teeth shine, her hair falls straight and true on the nape of her neck, her glance tilts a bit downward. She knows people in Los Angeles regularly pleasure themselves with dopey jokes about flyover states. It feels like she’s about to let herself be just a little bit mean. And she wants to tell a story.
Added three new outtakes from the shoot. Click on the photos below to view them!
I put up my hand to stop her. “Listen, I should be fair,” I say. “Before you go any further: I live in the Midwest. I flew in from Indiana last night.”
With that, Ashley Greene flops her long, fragile-looking hand over her mouth and gently barks out a laugh at herself. “Oh, my God,” she says. “That’s great.” She tilts a finger, pointing to me then to her, back and forth, laughing at the look-what-I-almost-got-us-into thing. “Me, too,” she says. “I’m from Florida!”
What the? “No, no,” I clarify. “I said Indiana. Green-castle. Twenty-five years.”
“Well, I’m from Florida!” she declares. And, truth is, somehow the simple joyous force of this incongruous assertion makes us peas in a pod in that moment. She drops her anecdote, leans against the table, gets just a little closer, and I can smell her shampoo. She has her finger twirling the inside rail of her large hoop earring. She left Jacksonville when she was seventeen. A year later, she had a leading role in Twilight, traveling enough that she can now say pretty clearly “I don’t really live here.” Again with the finger, pointing this way and that, meaning: this place, this neighborhood, this city, Los Angeles. She touches the end of her hair, flicks the silky weight of it over her shoulder, and looks in like she’s sharing a secret.
The gorgeous Ashley Greene has been seen in several new ads for DKNY. The photos are all part of DKNY’s Fall 2012 ad campaign and taken by photographer Peter Lindebergh. According to the brand, the inspiration for the shoot
“is a collection made for a true city girl who has places to go and people to see. Sweet and strong, pretty and tough, smart and street, this season’s campaign voyeuristically and and strikingly documents a slice of Ashley Greene’s life in the city.”
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.
