Twilight's Ashley Greene: I'm Fit Enough for Action Movies

Not surprisingly, Greene says working on “Twilight” with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner was an amazing experience.

“To work with incredible directors is like a crash course for acting,” she gushes.

“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,” she says.

Ashley has parlayed her athletic good looks into a lucrative modeling career, and loves fashion.
She was recently named a rep for DKNY jeans and for Mark Cosmetics.

She posed naked in body paint for Sobe fitness water last year and the campaign was featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

“I like to shop; I like fashion,” says Greene. “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.”

The actress is currently dating Broadway’s Reeve Carney, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. Carney, who currently stars in Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

She previously dated Jonas Brothers band member Joe Jonas.
The “Twilight” franchise gave Greene the kind of exposure young actors dream about in Hollywood but quality roles for women are still in short supply, especially as the industry struggles with low theater attendance.

“It has always been hard, but it is now very competitive,” says Ashley. “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.”

Ashley has two films coming out, “LOL: Laughing Out Loud” with Miley Cyrus and “The Boom Boom Room.”

She’s also appear in a three-episode guest starring role in TV’s dramedy “Pan Am” with Christina Ricci.
