On Tuesday night “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1” stars Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone and Charlie Bewley, plus soundtrack contributor Christina Perri walked a red carpet inside the House of Blues. Read below for my interviews:
Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen
Alice is Bella’s maid of honor. What’s something people shouldn’t do in a maid of honor speech?
Oh, the maid of honor I think should never really poke fun at either the groom or the bride, without their consent. I’ve been to some weddings where they say some kind of inappropriate things and everyone’s just like, (groans).
What do they say?
Oh, I can’t share that.
[Laughs] Just embarrassing stories about maybe the groom or the bride. And I think they should never drink before their speech. That’d be a good thing.
Soon you’ll be seen in “Butter,” in which people devote their lives to carving butter. Tell me about your own butter-carving skills, and a hidden talent of yours that might surprise people.
You know what, I didn’t actually get to carve butter—
I know, I know, it’s so sad! It was an extra skill I could have picked up that would have helped me in my life. My character is a very rebellious teenager–kind of can’t stand her dad or her step mom, and that’s what they live for so she’s just not interested at all. As far as a hidden talent, I have no idea. I’m not that talented. [Laughs]
You’ve said vampires are seductive. What makes them seductive?
I think it’s one that they’re very mysterious. There’s a lot that we don’t know about them. And they’re kind of menacing creatures but there’s something very sensual about them and for some reason you’re kind of drawn to them. I think just the whole unknown about them is very seductive.
Moody and pale skin; what’s not to like, right?
I know, right?!

Short interview with Chicago Tribune :
Ashley Greene: “I feel like not much hasn’t changed. I think the only thing that hasn’t changed are my core friends and family. I worked in a restaurant before I became part of ‘The Twilight Saga.’ I was trying to get a job, and landing one like this is crazy. To go from working at a restaurant to having an incredible fan base and doing press tours all over the world, it’s been amazing.”
Ashley wore four different wigs — one for each installment — beginning with her Dido-like chopped hair in the original “Twilight.” She didn’t seem to mind them, but she also had input on her short-hair wig in the upcoming “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” films.
“This last (wig) was a collaboration with (director) Bill Condon,” Greene said. “Luckily he had the same vision I had for Alice (Cullen). This was a good way to end.”
