MYSPACE Interview with Ashley Greene!

Fri, 11.18.11 | 7:37:56 am

Interview: ‘Breaking Dawn’s’ Ashley Greene on Bella’s wedding (beautiful), avoiding craft service (impossible), and why filming the birth scene was ‘unintentionally funny’

Sorry girls, not only is Ashley Greene super pretty, but she has to go and be a total sweetheart. Don’t you just hate that? The vampire best friend every ‘Twilight‘ fan wishes she had (or could be) was every bit as sunny and sweet as her onscreen counterpart, Alice Cullen, and just as gorgeous to boot. Below, we chat about some good old girly stuff like Bella’s wedding fashion, plus, she dishes on the cast being “like family,” and reveals why filming the infamous birth scene was “unintentionally funny.” But first, girl talk:

ASHLEY GREENE: I love your hair!
.
MYSPACE: Well, thank you, it’s very easy to do, just pin it all up! I really like your red blouse, it’s pretty.
.
ASHLEY GREENE: (She’s shyly tugging at her shirt) Thank you. Sometimes, I don’t know who they make these things for. Supermodels with longer torsos apparently!

MYSPACE: (laughing – she looks fantastic) No! It looks great! Speaking of fashion, this film had a lot of anticipation around the wedding, and especially the wedding dress. How did you feel seeing the wedding scene for the first time or seeing Kristen in her wedding dress?
.
ASHLEY GREENE: It was very exciting, and, extremely realistic. Honestly, I think part of it is that we’ve become his family and so you know, I do have a relationship with these people and these characters. So you try as an actor, to make it as real as possible and, I mean, it was beautiful and it was very intimate. They kept it, you know, it was kind of a closed set. It definitely affected most of the actors who play the Cullens. So it was kind of a beautiful thing. And seeing Kristen, or Bella, walk down this aisle in this beautiful gown and I mean, she’s stunning, that was a really cool thing to be a part of.
You know, I read the books. I was very excited to see how they did it as well. I didn’t really get to see much of the actual aesthetic of the wedding early. I got to see the dresses beforehand, so I kind of knew about that. But it was all kind of a surprise.
.
MYSPACE: Do you consider yourself more like a girly-girl? Were you really excited about the clothes? I mean, I know you’re a red carpet stunner, but is that a part of your personality?
.
ASHLEY GREENE: I do love fashion – I have an appreciation of it. It’s something that I’ve learned a lot about over the past probably four years, five years, because I grew up in Florida, and wore like jeans and flip flops. But once I was introduced to fashion and different designers and kind of learned and was schooled on fashion, then I became a big fan of it and appreciate it more, because I think that these designers are artists in their right. I love Donna Karan and I just got named the face of DKNY so that’s a good relationship – I went to a couple of fashion shows and started talking and this came out of it, so that was really exciting!
.
MYSPACE: Back to the movie – the story goes from this beautiful wedding scene and honeymoon to a total nightmare. Bella is dying and you know, Kristen’s wearing this crazy zombie makeup to capture that, and all the Cullens are wasting away as well. What was it like seeing Kristen in that makeup for the first time and also what was your experience being a Cullen in starvation mode?
.
ASHLEY GREENE: (laughing) Um, I can’t say I fully committed to the starvation thing!
You would like to be able to say, “Oh, well I’m just going to not eat” but craft services ruins that!
.
Kristen I mean, she just looked unhealthy when she put the prosthetics on! ‘Cause even though you know that they’re prosthetics, you can’t help but think they look like protruding bones and they did a really great job. And so it’s very creepy and I think, you know, you have to use it and allow yourself to think that it’s real and so it was disturbing seeing that. And to think that, you know, Bella’s let herself come to this and she’s still fighting for this child that’s clearly kind of eating away at her. It was, um, certainly, the darkest thing that I think Alice that has to deal with!
.
MYSPACE: Now that Alice and Bella are officially sisters and you got to play around with a protective streak, is there anything in your own personality that you feel you were able to bring to that?
.
ASHLEY GREENE: I think from the very beginning I instantly related to the fact that Alice is so loyal and so dedicated to her family, ’cause I’m very close to my family and they are kind of my whole world and I think she’s the same way. So I think, you know, that kind of crossed over into ‘Breaking Dawn.’ I’m generally pretty optimistic and I am not a violent person, but I think if someone messes with your family, all bets are off. You would kind of go to the ends of the earth to protect them and I certainly relate to that, so it wasn’t really that far off me having to kind of portray that with Alice.
.
MYSPACE: And, it’s not all doom and gloom in the movie, there are some really funny moments in there too. What was one of the fun moments for you on set?
.
ASHLEY GREENE: Oh, gosh, we had a lot of fun doing the dancing!
(Ashley and Jackson bust some pretty impressive ‘Dancing with the Stars’ moves during the wedding celebration)
.
MYSPACE: You really cut a rug with Jackson there!
.
ASHLEY GREENE: Yeah! Thank God I’ve known him for so long. I really do trust him and I think that you have to. Because, you know, we were doing this in heels and it was raining, so it was slick! And he actually has training in swing and all these other things. He knows how to do everything, so that was really helpful for me, ’cause I’d never done any of that style dancing. That was really fun.

What was unintentionally funny for us was filming the actual birthing scene. Because it was so intense that we didn’t really know what to do with ourselves! We were all sitting in this room and it was towards the end of shooting too, so I think we were a little tired. And you know, we were just looking at each other and going like “Are we doing this or? (laughing) you know, and – “How do we? How do you portray this?” And we were all so nervous and there’s cameras right on your face and it was going around and we would film it and then just start cracking up, like “Oh, my God, did this just happen? Did you see that happen?” It was funny to us, but it would never come across that way on screen.
.
Hopefully! (laughing)
.
MYSPACE: Don’t worry – it looks disgusting and terrifying
.
ASHLEY GREENE: Great!
.
MYSPACE: Rapid fire, tell me first concert you ever went to, first CD you ever bought, your favorite music video, the most recent album you bought and the most recent concert you went to.
.
ASHLEY GREENE: Okay, the first concert I ever went to, I think it was, um, not Tim McGraw… Who’s the guy with the alter-ego. He was a country singer… Garth Brooks! That was the first. I don’t know why I blanked on that… That was the first concert I went to — it was like a smaller thing and, it was way before the Chris Gaines thing. I was a huge country fan, see I grew up on dirt roads, so huge country fan.Listen to Garth Brooks radio at: http://www.myspace.com/officialgarthbrooks/radio
.
The first CD I ever bought is Fiona Apple. I mean, I think my parents got me, you know, I had The Little Mermaid and had Beauty and the Beast and everything. But Fiona Apple, I remember really loving that CD as a kid. It’s a really dark CD to like, but it was good music! She’s a really good musician.

Listen to Fiona Apple radio at: http://www.myspace.com/fionaapple/radio
.
The music video I really love, I just re-watched it, it’s really sad, but the Rascal Flatts, What Hurts the Most video. It’s really devastating and it’s so sad and it makes me cry every time, but I think it was just so beautifully done and it was a bit like a movie. Coupled with his voice being so incredible, it just always moves me and so that’s one of my favorite music videos:

The last album I bought was by Adele, and the last concert I went to was actually, the Clinton Foundation Concert. It was so cool, the mix of people they had, that was incredible. I really like going to shows like that, because they play four songs and it’s, you know, such a variety of different artists, so that’s the last one.
.
MYSPACE: Very cool, good list!
.
ASHLEY GREENE: Thanks!

Fans of the “Twilight” movies – Twihards – can tell you: Don’t be fooled and think that Alice Cullen is soft. Sure, she’s petite, and she has that short pixieish haircut and a killer fashion sense – but this vampire won’t back down from a fight.

The same can be said of Ashley Greene. In the past four years of “Twilight” movies, she has become a breakout star, a cover girl and a fan favorite in portraying the beloved Alice, the sister of Edward and BFF of Bella.

Just don’t misjudge Greene because you’ve seen her on the cover of Glamour or Cosmopolitan with the face and figure of a model with long, flowing brown hair.

This is a gal who gave one of her first crushes a bloody lip while showing off her taekwondo skills.

I was always a big tomboy. I was always wanting to do what my older brother was doing, and I was always following him around trying to be better than him – which was hard to do – but it made me super-competitive,” said Greene in a phone interview last week.

My mom tried to put me into dance, and I just had to tell her: Look, (my brother is) into martial arts, and that’s what I want to be into.

She said she’s appreciated the opportunity to create nuances for the character of Alice that aren’t found in the book – and that fans who are as passionate as those for “Twilight” have gone along with those subtle changes.

You create your own world,” she said of her vision of Alice, which she has worked to create with the film’s four different directors. “I’ve enjoyed some of the things that I’ve been able to create, and maybe the most recognizable is the baseball scene (from the first film, “Twilight,” with Alice on the mound exhibiting her full windup for the Cullen family batters).

When my leg went up in the air (while pitching), that was not something planned, but it just sort of came along, and people really talked about that, (because they know Alice) as this girl who’s supposed to be so dainty and comes from this ballerina background.

Her favorite scene in “Breaking Dawn-Part 1,” the fourth film in the series opening Friday, should be obvious. The wedding of Bella to Edward is a centerpiece of the film, and the spunky, whimsical Alice is tasked with designing everything – right down to Bella’s wardrobe for the honeymoon.

Alice did good,” Greene said with a chuckle. “It was just so special and so beautiful. And the dancing, that was so good. Jackson (Rathbone, who plays Jasper, Alice’s soulmate) is just so skilled as a dancer that it made it that much more fun.

Greene is prepared to move on to non-Alice roles, but she assures that she hasn’t seen the last of her “Twilight” family. “Throughout this process, I’ve grown up quite a bit, and I’ve grown up with these people, and that’s a good thing,” she said.

We’re the type of people that when we started this, we would hang out between films, and that’s one of the things that hasn’t changed. It’s been a really fulfilling process to be part of something this large and the (this? ) life-changing, and to do (it? ) in the way that we’ve all been able to get along. It’s really been a blessing.

Ashley Greene will be best known for her portrayals of Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” films for some time. But her first movie in which she has the leading role comes next year in a movie directed by Tulsa native filmmaker Todd Lincoln.

“Apparition,” the first feature film directed by the co-founder of the long-running Tulsa Overground Film Festival, is a supernatural thriller in which Greene stars with Sebastian Stan (“Gossip Girl”) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” movies).

We just got a release date for ‘Apparition’ for Aug. 24 (2012). I really loved working with Todd, and I was very grateful for him being involved in my first movie in which I’m the top name above the credits,” Greene said.

Working with him was fun, because he was so passionate, and he was so committed to it not as much being a horror film as much as it being a great thriller. He would talk to us about films like ‘Poltergeist’ and ‘Rosemary’s Baby,’ about films that aren’t so much gory but that are disturbing.”

As for it being my first studio leading role, I’m equally excited and terrified. But I’ve seen the finished product, and now I’m excited for everyone else to see it too.

STRICTLYCINEMA.COM:

If an actor is lucky enough, they may in their career get to play a character twice if a film does well enough to warrant a sequel. But for Ashley Greene, whose star in Hollywood began to rise with the smashing success of the first “Twilight” film in 2008, playing Alice Cullen has not only become an exciting gig,  but an exhilarating way of life.
The thing that’s been thrilling for me as an actor is having the chance to develop Alice throughout each installment and add layers to the foundation that was created,” Greene said in a recent interview. “I got to add a lot of different elements to her in the first part of ‘Breaking Dawn’ because she’s in a much darker place.
“Breaking Dawn — Part 1,” which opens in theaters nationwide Friday just after midnight, marks the fourth film in “The Twilight Saga” for Greene and her fellow stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
The first in the two-part finale of the film series, “Part 1” finally finds vampire Edward Cullen (Pattinson) meeting his human love, Bella Swan (Stewart) at the altar, despite the jealousy of Jacob Black (Lautner), a werewolf who has long-competed with Edward for Bella’s love.
But things become far more complicated when Bella becomes pregnant during the couple’s honeymoon, as she carries a half-vampire, half-human child who poses a threat to both the wolf pack and the vampire clan.
Worse yet, the pregnancy is taking a near-fatal toll on Bella, which plunges Alice into turmoil because the presence of the unborn baby has rendered the vampire powerless to see the future of her best friend.
That was fun to show that side of Alice because we’ve never really seen her frustrated, torn and have this inner battle of what she should do. She either has to support her sister-in-law or tell her that she’s crazy for allowing herself to deteriorate in front of everyone’s eyes,” Greene said. “Plus you see Alice  form an alliance with unlikely people. There’s a lot more going on with her than in any of the previous ‘Twilight’ films.
Everyone’s Best Friend
While the characters of Edward, Bella and Jacob have always been the primary focus of author Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” book series, the films have yielded some unexpected results as Alice has become a big fan favorite. The character’s popularity is fine with Greene, who admits she was a big fan of Alice dating back to the books.
This whole franchise has been full of surprises — and fun surprises,” Greene said. “I always loved Alice, even before I had seen the script or was cast in the role, because she was always this perky ray of sunshine and a little sassy sometimes. I understand how fans relate to her because she essentially is that best friend that everybody wants.
With the end of the “Twilight” film in sight, Greene is finding herself racked by mixed emotions. For all intents and purposes, Greene is done with the film series since the first and second half of “Breaking Dawn” filmed back-to-back, yet she knows she’ll at least to get to gather with her cast mates a few more times about a year from now when she does press before “Breaking Dawn — Part 2” hits theaters.
So in a way, Greene lamented, the last day of filming wasn’t really a goodbye, but a pre-mourning period nonetheless.

The last day on the set is something that’s hard to describe. Definitely it was emotional, and I had no way to prepare for that. You know the end is coming but you can’t ignore it,” Greene said.  “On one hand, you think, ‘I’ve been shooting for seven months and now I can sleep,’ but then I was like, ‘Oh, wait, we’re not coming back to this and I’ve shelved the character for good. That’s tough because Alice has essentially become a piece of my life and my world.

Ashley and co-stars Sarah Clarke and Jackson Rathbone were on hand for the Twilight Saga: ‘Breaking Dawn Part 1’ premiere at the Winter Garden Theatre on November 17, 2011 in Toronto, Canada.

According to Ashley Greene, the newcomers appearing in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 were dead meat from the moment they were cast in the hit vampire franchise.

“I hazed them. I hazed them for sure,” the 24-year-old joked at The Cinema Society and DKNY’s special screening in NYC Wednesday.

All kidding aside, Greene says the cast was “so excited” to have new actors to interact with onscreen.

“Even though we all love each other and we are like a family, it’s so cool to have these different personalities and energy come in,” Greene told Us Weekly. “It was so huge! I think the whole cast is like 70 people this time. It’s cool to have different artistic personalities come in.”

Ashley and co-star Jackson Rathbone sat down with dinoray.com during their stop in San Francisco for the fan event on November 10th, and talked about Breaking Dawn, their characters and upcoming projects:

In addition to last week’s grainy, shaky-cam coverage of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 event in San Francisco, I had the opportunity to chat with the stars of the movie in a glorious and more intimate roundtable interview setting.

The first pair of stars to face the gauntlet of questions was Ashley Greene (a.k.a. Alice) and Jackson Rathbone (a.k.a. Jasper):

How do you think your characters have evolved since the very first Twilight?

Jackson: It’s a constant evolution. It’s one of the things that first attracted us to the script. It’s lovely to play a character that moves, learns, and grows. Even though we are playing these immortal characters, it’s really lovely for us to grow and learn. With Jasper, he is kind of freaky at first. He doesn’t really know how to deal with humans around. He is trying to embrace this lifestyle because he loves Alice. He wants to be a part of this family. In New Moon, he screws up and almost kills Bella. In Eclipse, he rises up and tries to fight for the family. In Breaking Dawn Part 1, we see Jasper smile which is awesome — and I take this lady (points to Ashley) on the dance floor.

Ashley: Jasper gets to smile and Alice stops smiling for the first time.

Jackson: It’s a flip!

Jackson, right after this press tour, you’re going on tour with your band 100 Monkeys. Do you think you’ll ever take a break?

Jackson: I don’t really believe in down time — well — let me switch that around. I think all of my time is down time because I love what I do. I’m never bored or complacent. One of my favorite poems is “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S. Elliot. It’s about a man who wishes to change his life but doesn’t have the will to do it. I have always taken that as a queue to never be complacent.

Ashley, you have two movies coming up: LOL and Butter. Are you excited for your fans to see you in different roles?

Ashley: Yeah — I am. LOL is great because it’s a completely different character than Alice. She’s kind of the bad girl. It’s still a high school film and it’s still relatable — but it’s different. It adjusts to modern day technology and the trials that kids are going through now with this instant ability to put pictures online — and the struggle for adults to relate kids these days. Butter is a comedy and it’s a little dark. It’s about butter carving in Iowa which is a really big thing that I never knew existed. That one is really fun — the cast is incredible.

If you had to go back and redo the entire Twilight franchise, and had to play a different character. Who would you be?

Ashley: I wold be Victoria — cause I really liked her character. I know she’s the villain, but I think there are things about her that you can relate to. Someone took away her life partner and you kind of understand why she wants revenge. Villains are so layered and there’s so much going on and there’s always a reason why they are the way they are.

Jackson: I would be Jacob’s dad because he gets to sit the whole time. There are such long hours on set.

Ashley: You would fall asleep.

Jackson: That would be awesome!

If there is one thing Teen Vogue is all about, it’s girl power! So, naturally, I was super-pumped when I had the chance to do a red carpet interview with Twilight star Ashley Greene at the Avon Foundation Global Voices for Change Gala, which honored those who work hard to eradicate breast cancer and domestic violence against women.

Ashley, who is a Mark for Avon brand ambassador, dazzled in a stunning blue Donna Karan dress, and her makeup and hair perfectly channeled Old Hollywood glamour, thanks to celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh and superstar hairstylist Ted Gibson. Want to know Ashley’s favorite beauty products and tips? Check out our interview below!

Why is the message behind Avon’s gala important for Teen Vogue readers?

The gala tonight is meant to raise awareness for breast cancer and domestic violence. As we all know, breast cancer affects everyone, regardless of age. Some girls are young, so it’s important to be aware and to try and fight for a cure. Many people might not know this, but domestic violence against young women is very common, especially between the ages of 16 to 24. This is unacceptable, and it’s important for young women to be well-educated about these issues and know that there is a place to turn to. There is something they can do.

Has your makeup look changed at all since you started working with Mark?

I’ve been able to explore a lot more makeup-wise than I have in the past! I’m a very simple girl, so it’s been fun to go on photo shoots and to events, and have one of the Mark makeup artists come and work on me. Mark has a lot of fun colors!

You have a bright pink lip on right now. What are your tips on how to wear color?

Keep it sheer and simple, especially if you’re wearing a bright dress, like I am tonight. You don’t want to go overboard with color—just balance it out. If you go heavy on the lips, keep your eyes simple. Another thing: never match your eye color with your dress! I think we’ve all done that at some point in time…

What’s your number one beauty tip?

Less is always more! Accentuate what you have with makeup rather than trying to cover yourself up!

Tonight is all about self-empowerment. What would you say to your teenage self about inner beauty and confidence?

I would have told her, “You’ll grow into yourself and you’ll figure it out.” When you’re young, it can be a hard time because you’re just figuring out who you are. It can make you freak out a little bit—I know I certainly did. I’m now 24, and I just started figuring out who I am. Be patient, you’ll get there!

What’s your must-have Mark product?

Definitely their Light Bright Lighten & Depuff Eye Gel. I fly a lot, so it’s perfect for tired eyes. I also love the Gloss Gorgeous Stay on Lip Stain, which I’m wearing tonight. I love it because you don’t have to apply so much of it.

Great new interview with Ashley by of Movieline.com:

Ashley Greene has been playing Alice, an unwaveringly supportive sisterly friend to Kristen Stewart’s Bella, since the beginning of the Twilight series. In Breaking Dawn — Part 1 the psychic Alice serves as wedding planner and all-around helpful vampire girl, but also faces a sudden inability to help Bella by seeing her future, or that of the child she’s carrying. Greene talked about Bella’s well-being, the nature of relationships and the film’s intense birth scene.

In Breaking Dawn — Part 1, Alice loses some of her power to help Bella. What was it like to switch gears in the role?
It’s just a much darker place than I’ve ever had to go with Alice because she’s losing her powers. I think it’s kind of the least of her problems, I mean, it is frustrating, but she’s more concerned, not that she can’t see the future, just that she can’t see her friend’s future, or her sister’s future. I think she’s having this inner battle and this turmoil because she wants to be there for her sister, now that Bella’s her sister, and wants to support her. She also knows that Bella obviously doesn’t know what’s good for her and she is seeing her sister deteriorate before her eyes, and it definitely was not what I was used to while playing Alice.

The relationship between Bella and Alice is catfight-free. Do you think their relationship sends a good message to girls?
Of course there is a lot of cattiness and a lot of competition. I feel like girls are so hard on each other. Even in Twilight it was one that I personally really liked, that Alice was so welcoming and really embraced Bella and welcomed her into the family while there were other people still judging and saying, “Who is this girl?” and that was always something I tried to do in high school. I remember people not being so pleasant to me when I was the new girl, and as a result of that I always tried to, you know, give people the benefit and welcome them in. Teenage years are hard enough already, because we don’t really know who we are.

Especially if you’re a human surrounded by vampires.
That doesn’t help either. Yeah, she’s got it much worse than us.

Bella’s childbirth scene was sort of grisly. Do you think younger girls who are into the series will be turned off by the gory parts?
I think they all kind of know it’s coming. The book was probably more graphic than what you see onscreen. We tried to kind of tone it down a bit, but of course the biggest goal was to keep everything as close as we could to the story while keeping it a PG-13 rating. But I’m sure there are some girls who are not going to like seeing some of the stuff.

One of the threads in Breaking Dawn is the accidental abuse of Bella by Edward after they get married. You’re involved in a campaign against dating abuse, so what do you think of that aspect of the film?
I think that it’s a bit different because she’s the one choosing to allow what’s happening to continue happening. I think Edward is the one who’s saying, “We need to make this stop to protect you,” and he really cares about her well-being more than she does, and that’s how it should be. I think it sends a very good message, and if it were the opposite I would completely not condone it because I think it is very important that girls know that they’re important and that they deserve to be treated with respect. Luckily, Edward is in no way, shape or form abusing her. I think he would kill himself before he would let anything happen to her, and she’s the stubborn one going, “I want to keep this child.” And he can’t quite understand because I think until you are in that place you don’t know how it feels to have a child inside you. It was I think a really difficult place for both Edward and Bella to be in.

Does Alice eventually become more involved in protecting Bella and Renesmee?
She is. Obviously, Rosalie is the most concerned about protecting Renesmee and Jacob, but Alice is always more concerned about Bella than Renesmee. There are already so many other people on top of this child that she pays more attention to Bella the whole time.

What was the transition like when Stephenie Meyer came on as a producer? Did you notice a change?
No, she’s always been — I said she’s like Google. It’s nice to have her there all the time because she would kind of come in and go out in the past films, and it was nice to have her there as a constant presence because she’s the source on everything, and any questions you had, she’s there. The goal the whole time is to make sure that we stay true to these characters and to the book, and she’s obviously a huge driving force in that as well, so it was comforting to have her around.

Ashley Greene’s Popsugar Interview

Mon, 11.14.11 | 12:18:28 pm

Popsugar caught up with Ashley and co at the San Francisco fan event where she talked her upcoming movies including ‘L.O.L’ and ‘Butter’, plus working with Kellan Lutz and Tom Felton in ‘A Warrior’s Heart’ and ‘The Apparition’, respectively:

Ashley on her fans seeing her in other roles: “I think LOL is really great, it’s a completely different character than Alice. She’s kind of a bad girl a little bit but it’s a high school film so it’s still relatable. It was a fun one to do, I think they’ll like it a lot. Butter is a little bit older, it’s a comedy but it’s a little dark. It’s about butter carving in Iowa which is actually a big thing I didn’t even know existed and the cast is just incredible.”

Ashley on working with Kellan Lutz in The Warrior’s Heart: “That was really fun. Kellan is one of my best friends so I’m always game to be able to be on set with him. It’s a really nice thing — I mean I love my job and I love what I do but to be able to be on set with one of your best friends is kind of the cherry on top.”

Ashley on working with Harry Potter’s Tom Felton in The Apparition: “There aren’t a lot of people who have been a part of something like this and who are going through the same things and so he was another person that I could really relate to and talk to about the whole thing. It’s always so nice to see people go through things and be a part of this massive phenomenon and still remain just so sweet and so down to earth. He’s such a phenomenal actor and person, it was a pleasure working with him.”

Collider got a chance to talk to Ashley during the ‘Breaking Dawn: Part I: press junket in L.A last week. Below is their interview with her:

In the Twilight Saga films, actress Ashley Greene plays fan favorite character Alice Cullen, the typically upbeat supporter of Edward Cullen’s (Robert Pattinson) true love Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Pt. 1, Alice starts out as the ray of sunshine she’s become known for, planning Edward and Bella’s lavish wedding, only to become increasingly worried and frustrated, as Bella’s surprise pregnancy keeps her from being able to see the future.

During this exclusive interview with Collider, Ashley Greene talked about how the relationships that she formed will be what she remembers most strongly about the entire Twilight experience, how’s she learned to better cope with all of the attention that she receives as a result of the huge success of the films, the special gifts that she’s been given by the fans, what she thought of Alice’s dress and her dance at the wedding, and what it was like to explore another side of her character. She also talked about wanting to always do work that she’s passionate about, and how she’ll shoot Olivia Twisted, a dark and gritty action film that is a female-driven modern version of Oliver Twist, next year. Check out what she had to say after the jump:

Where I Go: Ashley Greene [VANITYFAIR]

Fri, 11.11.11 | 11:09:12 am

For Twilight vixen Ashley Greene, star of the upcoming films Breaking Dawn: Part 1 and Butter, the Caribbean islands are sunshine-y mecca—and just a short flight away.

To get away from it all, I go to … Turks and Caicos. It has become one of my favorite vacation destinations. It’s relaxing and fun, with beautiful beaches and fantastic restaurants.

My favorite way to travel there is … JetBlue.

My favorite place to stay is … Gansevoort Turks and Caicos. I stayed there the first time I traveled to the Turks for a photo shoot. The hotel is so beautiful and luxurious that it has become my go-to destination.

My ideal travel companions are … Nothing beats a great vacation with the people I love most. Last trip, I brought along my mom, dad, and best friend.

When I’m in the mood for room service, my favorite order is … Caesar salad with grilled chicken. And a margarita on the rocks.

To stay in shape, my on-the-go fitness regime is … When I’m on vacation, I want to do nothing but relax! I find that activities like Jet Skiing, paddle boarding, and snorkeling are enough.

My suitcase must absolutely contain … Mark’s Gloss Gorgeous lip stains, [which] come in travel-friendly sizes so you can pop them in your purse for an on-the-go beauty pick-me-up. I’m also extremely diligent about protecting my skin, so sunblock is a beach-vacation must. Oh, and an oversize hat is a two-in-one—it’s glamorous and protects your face from the sun.

When it comes to luggage … I travel a lot for work, [so] I pretty much have packing down to a science. It’s a hidden talent of mine.

My favorite travel pastimes are … I travel with an iPad so I can read scripts, books, play Angry Birds on the plane …

Upon departing, I am most happy to … just unplug for a few days. My life has been nonstop over the past couple years, which I’m incredibly grateful for, but at the same time it’s nice to forget about work and spend some quality time with my loved ones in a beautiful paradise.
