When it comes to fashion, I love skinny jeans, a simple top, and a great handbag.— Ashley Greene
The most glamorous Ashley Greene quotes that are little-known but priceless
When girls come up and say, "You're my role model," it's really flattering, but it's also really scary because I'm not perfect and I'm going to make mistakes.
Comedy is something that I'm definitely looking to get into.
I had a little taste of it and I do intend on going to classes for it because I think it's a different muscle, and it's hard to find female comedians.
You know, my brother won't walk out of a restaurant with me anymore because he doesn't want to be linked to me as my new 'mystery man.' Same with my close guy friends.
If you are going to be with someone all the time, they need to be your best friend.
I want to play a role of a 24-year-old woman, not 17-year-old girls.
So I have picked a couple of films like 'Butter' to show that. And it's perfectly fine not to do anything for a year if I don't find the right thing.
Alice Cullen had more vampire interaction, for sure, than human interaction.
I think she was kind of amped to finally get to play a vampire, so she was good to go.
I have a martial arts background and I'm very athletic.
So I think if I can find a film where a female is a badass in it - that would just be amazing. They are sometimes hard to find, but I definitely want to do something like that.
[Alice Cullen] disappears for a little bit to go gather some people to help the cause, but when she comes back she is definitely very present and, yeah, I had a lot of fun doing that.
I feel like Alice Cullen probably could do it in her sleep, because she was always surrounded by a vampire.
I feel like, after Renesmee, Alice cullen would want to go get her own baby - her and Jasper. And I definitely think that she would be constantly with Renesmee, and taking her out shopping and dressing her up and that whole thing. But I think, maybe, it would give her the itch to wanna find a baby.
That was an amazing time period [ CBGB filming] to transport to during filming - the clothes, the music, the lifestyle - it really helps to get into character when there's so much that changes from the moment you step onto the set.
When it comes to beauty, I'm all about lashes right now.
I feel like there is never enough, and it's interesting to me because I don't think I'm that interesting. I can definitely bring something to the table, but it's just always incredible our fans are so dedicated and interested in what we are doing.
I feel like everyone kind of knew someone, like 6 degrees of separation.
In Hollywood that is very common.
Honestly, I just try to drink lots of water and get a decent amount of sleep!
Skinny jeans are usually my go to jean.
I do bootleg every once in a while, boyfriend jeans I feel like are so hard to pull off! Skinny jeans are very easy and you can kind of pair anything with them and it will work: heels and boots or nice top or flouncy top.
I worked with and became close with these characters [in Twilight] and the people who are portraying them and it's kind of, I think, a safety net that we had, and it's going to be kind of strange not going back to set with these people that I've become so familiar with.
I think exercising and eating fairly clean does wonders for your skin.
You never know, when you're going in to work with people if they're gonna be friendly or judgmental, or what have you. There's a ton of insecurities that go into my head, before I start working with someone.
I'm not going to get drunk at a bar. There are younger girls who look up to me. So I do my best not to stray too far.
Why do people care what I'm wearing or what I'm eating, and why are people looking down on me because I'm not wearing high heels? That's the downside to being in the public eye.
I don't like watching myself. That's kind of weird but you know it's not me really, it's this character, which I think might make it a little easier.
At some point if you had gone into all of our stories in depth that would've just kind of been all over the place.
I love Cate Blanchett. She's extremely classy and has this knack for taking on roles and being very, very strong, but also embedding vulnerability. She has this relatable quality. I like the path she chose.
We are so used to not having kids around [on Twilight] that we had to really make an effort to try and edit our language.
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.
I think the rapid rate at which people started caring and paying attention, because it's just something that I don't think you can really prepare for - there's no textbook on it. Just the amount of interest that people have in me and Alice and the "Twilight" series and the rest of my cast.
If you ever, ever, ever want to complain about what's going on in the U.
S., you should vote because then you have a right to. If you want to complain, you should vote.
[Mackenzie Foy] is really a fantastic actress and she's very professional, but she is still a kid and that's really nice to see, whenever there is a balance and they're able to have fun and play on set, but still go home and hang out with friends her age. I was really impressed with her. I think the biggest change for us is that we had a "swear jar." And she was rich - she made more money than us.
I travel a lot so I do everything I can to keep my skin fresh and hydrated.
Whenever I fly, I make sure I have a clean face so I can give my skin a break.
Except, I think, it's more about me growing up and becoming an adult that I have this new best-friend type of relationship with my mom.
I always liked performing. I always liked being in front of people. That's one of the things I loved about law; we had mock trials, and I got to go up and state my case. But I took an acting class, and after my first class, I was hooked.
But I don't do the diet thing anymore.
I'm a big believer in feeding your body what it needs. Deny yourself something and you're going to end up shoving your face full of it.
It's exciting to kind of move forward and take hold of the opportunity that "Twilight's" afforded us, but it's also kind of sad.
You do a movie and, even if it's not a comedy or it's not an action film, you get a little taste of it, and then I want to do it full force.
I did side planks for my obliques, which are one of my trouble areas.
And traditional planks tone your back so you don't have that little bit of fat hanging over your bra. Ugh!
When I was growing up, I cheered and danced and ran and stuff like that.
I'm probably thinner now than I was in high school. I had a lot of muscle - a LOT of muscle in high school. When I was a kid I did marshal arts, and then I did all-star crazy competitive cheer and dance, and then I swam so I was very muscular. You know, healthy, but not quite as thin as I am.
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 have a certain way of thinking where I see something, and I know that I want it and I make up my mind - and that's pretty much all there is to it. It was like, This is what I want to do, and I'm going, and everything's going to work out. I'm going to be an actress. There was no way around it.
I've definitely learned more about myself through experimentation over the years - which products work best for my skin and tricks from various makeup artists I've been lucky enough to work with.
But as far as the fame goes, my parents make sure they keep me grounded, for sure. They make me wash dishes still.
There's a pretty epic battle "Part 2" of Twilight.
It's really involved and it took us a few weeks to film it, because there was so many of us and it was such a large, massive war. I think they're really gonna love that. I feel like we've been working up to this the whole series and there was a bit of confrontation, but you never really got to see all the vampires go full force.
I think my mom gets weirded out, sometimes, by people knowing so much about me or people always asking questions.
I think everyone kind of knows and makes the effort to see each other and invites people to barbecues and whatnot. I think it was harder, probably, saying goodbye to Alice Cullen. That was probably the hardest, because that's the only person that I'm not gonna see again.
I'm an actor, so sometimes there are moments where I think about everything that's happening and I want to cry. I'm doing what I love and I will be doing it for a very, very long time - and it's amazing. A lot of people don't get to do that.
I've just decided that I have to continue to live my life and do what I do.
Hopefully, people love me because of who I am, not who I pretend to be.
Throughout the course [of Twilight], you get to see a little more of her vampiric side, because I think she's this vampire with a heart of gold and so that was kind of fun - to show her be a little tough and a little fierce, and to show that she has a little bit of a sassy side when she's dealing with the wolves or with Jacob. So I feel like I got to really round [Alice Cullen] out quite nicely.
I would spar with the boys at school.
This guy I had a crush on, we called him Spitfire -- I gave him a bloody nose and lip, so needless to say the romance did not work out!
As a Mark brand ambassador, I became extremely cognizant of the devastating statistics about dating abuse and partner violence via the mPowerment campaign and knew I wanted to help change those statistics. mPowerment by Mark and the Avon Foundation for Women funded the No More study, which explored dating abuse, partner violence, and sexual assault. I was honored to be part of it and report the results of the survey in a Capitol Hill briefing.
