Ashley Greene is becoming a permanent fixture on Hollywood’s best-dressed lists as she jetsets around the world promoting “Breaking Dawn: Part 1,” and since the vampire vixen broke into the business as a model she definitely knows how to pop a perfect red carpet pose. We caught up with Ashley at the Avon Foundation for Women Global Voices for Change Gala in NYC last week to talk about beauty and her biggest idols!
The 24-year-old plays the fashion-loving vampire Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” series, so it should come as no surprise that her biggest idol is none other than “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” star and clothes horse Audrey Hepburn.
“Audrey Hepburn, I’ve always been a huge fan of because I think that she is all encompassing and she had it all,” shares Ashley. “She was beautiful, elegant, a huge philanthropist, and an amazing actress and so I really respect her for everything that she did.”
But the Florida born actress says the one person who can top Holly Golightly is her Mom. “My Mom is certainly one of [my idols]. I think she is an amazing role model.”
Ashley credits her Mom for teaching her to dream big. “‘You can change the world’ is something that my mother has told me since I was a very small child and I think that is one of the driving forces in what I do today,” Ashley noted.
And now that she is a major role model for thousands of teenage fans of the Stephenie Meyer series, Ashley says she wants her fans to know, “You can do anything you want, and you can make a difference.”
It is actually the huge number of teenage fans that landed Ash a job as a brand representative for mark. the teen-centric line for Avon. But despite the glitz and glamour of her Hollywood life, she wants her fans to know that beauty is more than skin deep. “Make sure that you are as beautiful inside as you are out, because that is a very important thing.”
With beauty, brains, and one of Hollywood’s most coveted roles it seems like Ashley is well on her way to becoming an idol all her own. Catch her in “Breaking Dawn: Part 1” hitting theaters Nov. 18, or head to Yahoo! Movies for a sneak peek of Ash playing bridesmaid to Kristen Stewart.
