Ashleys intervju med Lucky Magazine
Since landing a major role in that vampire movie series, Ashley Greene has mastered the red carpet, battled paparazzi and become a DKNY muse and Mark makeup icon. But she’s still got something to prove.
“I won’t lie, there are times when I’m like, ‘Why is this so hard?’ ” Ashley Greene is saying. “You come off a high like Twilight and then you get dropped back down to reality.”
We’re sitting in a cozy Italian restaurant near Times Square on a rainy winter evening, and Greene—who is best known for playing Alice Cullen, the cheeriest vampire in the Twilight saga movies—is laying out her game plan for making it even bigger in Hollywood.
“Twilight has given me something to skyrocket off of,” Greene says. “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.”
Greene is dressed in all black, including a sleek, faux-fur Marc Jacobs vest, plus shadowy eye makeup—but somehow she doesn’t look at all goth. Instead she almost sparkles, like the moon or stars or werewolf eyes or something. Nonetheless, as she speaks, it becomes apparent that having a cult-like following at just 25 may not be quite as cool as it sounds. On the one hand, the throngs of obsessed fans make her feel like a superstar.
They build adoring websites dedicated to her and fixate on every single thing she does (this category includes certain creepy folks who staked out her parents’ house in Florida and a paparazzo who once drove directly into her garage in L.A.). On the other hand, she still has to prove herself as a leading actress and audition for people who may not be Twilight fans—only now her competition is often big-time celebrities. “Basically I went from ‘dying to get a gig’ to ‘dying to get the gig that everyone wants,’ ” she says. “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.”
Greene is moving like mad to get what she wants: The fourth Twilight movie came out in November and grossed $138 million over the opening weekend; soon after that she shot four episodes of ABC’s Pan Am; this month she’ll costar in the quirky film Butter and appear in ad campaigns for DKNY and DKNY Jeans (“I love how Donna Karan designs for real women with curves,” Greene says); later this year she’ll appear in the final Twilight movie, take her first lead role, in a summer horror flick called The Apparition, as well as costar in LOL with Demi Moore and continue her gig as the global ambassador for Mark cosmetics. “I mean, I think I’m doing all right,” Greene says as raindrops pelt the restaurant’s windows. “But the main focus is trying to solidify my spot in Hollywood because, you know, I’m not there yet.”
This sense of insecurity has driven Greene—with good results—since childhood. “My mother put me in modeling classes because I had low self-esteem,” Greene says. “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.” Läs resten av intervjun här.

The vampire bites back: Coming off the fourth installment of The Twilight Saga, in which she plays V.F.F. to Kristen Stewart’s Bella, Ashley Greene has experienced her fair share of Twilightfandom: “People ask me to bite them, and I’m just like, You know it’s a movie, right?”>
Give me a V! Before landing on the big screen, Greene was a competitive cheerleader. “I’ve fallen, I’ve gotten dropped—people have just not caught me. My bones crack now in ways that a 24-year-old’s bones should probably not crack!”
Bright lights, big city: As the new face of DKNY, Greene has been spending a lot of time in the Big Apple, taking a break from fame. “There’s something about New York that I absolutely love. You know, no one in New York cares about me. It’s great. Everyone has their own business to attend to. Everyone’s got somewhere to be.”
Going places: The year ahead will be a busy one for Greene, who will be appearing alongside Jennifer Garner and Olivia Wilde in this month’sButter and starring in the upcoming thriller The Apparition—oh, and did we mention the finale of theTwilight franchise,Breaking Dawn: Part 2? >
Tripple threat: Her charmed acting career has already stoked further moviemaking ambitions in the young actress and model: “I think it’s a really nice kind of segue into possibly producing in the future and developing films,” she says.

"Having a close friend with a parent battling this disease made me jump at the opportunity to participate in this book. I hope it can raise much-needed awareness and funds to take us one step closer to finding a cure for brain cancer."

The Apparition & Butter på The Notable Films of 2012
Opens: August 24th 2012
Cast: Tom Felton, Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Julianna Guill, Luke Pasqualino
Director: Todd Lincoln
Analysis: Dark Castle’s horror entry for this past September, this PG-13 sci-fi meets haunted house tale was delayed a full year – so something could well be reshot. It was filmed in Berlin, but set in a part of the San Fernando Valley where houses go unfinished though with no obvious reason, unlike say Réunion Island where it’s for tax purposes.
The obvious influence here is “Paranormal Activity” but with a proper budget and a desire to beef up the number of scares, yet Twilight scene-stealer Ashley Greene and the still under-rated but always fun Sebastian Stan probably won’t be able to salvage the material.
Opens: March 16th 2012
Cast: Jennifer Garner, Ashley Greene, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Hugh Jackman
Director: Director: Jim Field Smith
Analysis: Jason Micallef’s debut script landed him right onto the 2008 Black List which saw this comedy quickly head into production. The story follows an adopted teen who discovers her talent for butter carving and finds herself pitted against an ambitious local woman (Garner) in their small Iowan town’s annual contest.
Screened at Telluride, reviews for this Midwest satire were quite strong saying that while it does pander to crowd pleasing conventions at the end, much of the runtime is wickedly edgy with a mean streak recalling Alexander Payne’s earliest efforts like “Election” and “Citizen Ruth”. The cast is very strong and Garner looks to deliver her best work in the genre in years, hopefully this will be an indie that can break through ala “Little Miss Sunshine”.

Ashley lämnar Trader Joe’s i West Hollywood - 5 januari
She's been keeping herself mostly out of the paparazzi spotlight as of late, but Ashley Greene was spotted by the shutterbugs as she ran errands in West Hollywood, California on Thursday afternoon (January 5).
The "Twilight" hottie looked cute and casual in a blue top and denim short-shorts as she and a male companion hit up the local Trader Joe's to stock up on a few household needs.
Meanwhile, fans of Miss Greene can look forward to seeing her back on the small screen as her TV series Pan-Am will be returning with an all-new episode titled "Secrets and Lies" on January 8, 2012 at 10/9c on ABC.
A synopsis of the program's latest installment via the show's website reads: "Dean and Colette's budding romance suffers a blow; Maggie falls for the congressman she wrote a story about; Kate's last assignment haunts her; Ted thinks he has found the love of his life."

US Weekly; Ny exklusiv DKNY Spring 2012 annons med Ashley
Last month, DKNY unveiled Ashley Greene's DKNY Jeans billboard over Times Square in NYC. The black-and-white ad showed her in hip-hugging flares and a tight, low-cut white tank top.
And now, the star's campaign photo for DKNY has been revealed -- in color -- where she is dressed in a much edgier and fashion-forward ensemble.
"I love wedges right now," the star told Us Weekly in NYC December 22. "They're really comfortable and, especially when you're running around New York, it's nice to have a shoe that you can walk in."
The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn: Part 1 actress signed on to serve as the brand-ambassador for DKNY and DKNY Jeans in October.
