Ashley heeft een interview gedaan met MediaplanetUSA waarin ze praat over het belang van goede financiën.
Actor Ashley Greene says now is the perfect time to think about our financial futures, start building credit, and get smart about saving.
Ashley Greene, an actor best known for the Twilight series, has been proactive about her finances for years, and she says it’s thanks to her father. “My father has always drilled it into my brother and my head that building credit is the best thing you can do for yourself,” Greene said. “We grew up with not a lot of money. Even though we didn’t have much, he had stellar credit.”
Greene got serious about her own finances when she first moved to Los Angeles at 17. “I got a credit card because I wanted an Apple computer and then I didn’t pay my credit card,” she said. “My dad nearly lost his mind.”
Having credit looming over her at a young age taught Greene to think more fiscally. “Until I owed money that I could not pay, I didn’t really grasp the severity of how it holds its control over you,” she said. “After that, I looked at a credit card as something where I control my credit card versus it controlling me.”
Many young people think of a credit card as a fast way to more money, but Greene warns people to avoid that attitude. “We have to have credit cards unfortunately. You have to have them to gain credit, but don’t spend more than you have,” she said. “Use the credit card, build your credit, pay the credit card off, because otherwise, you’re just going to get yourself into this rabbit hole.”
Greene, who shares her household finances with her husband Paul Khoury, takes a proactive approach to managing the couples’ spending. “As brutal as it is, I go over all of our credit card statements, even if it’s a monthly autopay statement,” she said. “I think people don’t want to look at it. It’s that mentality of, ‘If I don’t look at it it’s not there,’ when really what you should be doing is getting ahead of it.”
Now as the United States economy struggles due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is especially important to start thinking about smart budgeting. “You never think it’s going to happen and here it is happening,” she said, “but then I could sit and remember, you were prepared for this.”
The economic shutdown has meant radical changes in spending but changing spending habits could be a chance to re-evaluate spending priorities, according to Greene. “I went to Big Lots the other day, what with the craziness and there being no toilet paper, and I walked into Big Lots and thought, I’m an idiot. Why am I not coming here all the time when all of the things are half the price?” she said.
Greene, whose mother was an insurance broker, believes this is an empowering time to invest in our personal finances, especially for women. “It is a time for women to feel very empowered,” she said. “There’s so much more that I could know, but I feel very empowered by the fact that I am in control of myself and my finances.” Greene has just signed up for an online finance course through Yale, thanks to a friend’s recommendation. “You can do it on your computer. You can learn it at home so you don’t feel embarrassed that you’re starting from the ground floor.”
Greene hopes that other women will encourage each other to learn more about their financial futures. “I would encourage every woman to do it,” she said, “and teach your daughters. I was very lucky to have the dad that I have.”

In Episode 18 we’re talking to Ashley Greene Khoury @ashleygreene as she explains how her career has evolved since moving to Hollywood at the age of 17. Fresh from Jacksonville, FL, she dove into the acting scene and in only two short years landed a role in one of the biggest movie franchises in the world, Twilight. Past that life changing role, Ashley made it a priority to develop her voice and maintain creative control over her choices as an actress by staying in alignment with projects she believes in. We listen as she tells us why the set of Bombshell was unlike any other and she explains how the continuing shift in the industry, along with her own beliefs about self love and self image, have empowered her to honor her truest self. We learn about Ashley’s healthy work/life balance with her husband, Paul, how she maintains a healthy outlook, and how she pays it forward by continuing to support and empower those around her. Most impressively, she’s made it a point to be involved with different charities in order to be a voice for women who don’t have the privilege of being able to use their own. @achando @blairbomar @actionparkmediagroup @mammothfilmfestival @mrkevinconnolly @narodmichelle

Ashley was afgelopen donderdag te gast bij NBC 6 in The Mix in Miami om te promoten dat ze de Giapenta Pop-Up Store gaat hosten.
Looking ahead! Ashley Greene’s parenthood preparation is starting in the kitchen.
“We’re not having kids in the near-near future, but before we have children, I just want to kind of get certain things set and implement certain things into our lifestyle now,” the actress, 32, told Us Weekly exclusively of her and her husband Paul Khoury’s lifestyle changes earlier this month at Elite World Group’s e1972 NYFW Runway Show launching the size-less luxury brand with a special performance by Bebe Rexha.

While the Twilight star has “stopped eating meat,” she isn’t going vegan. “I couldn’t do it,” the Florida native admitted to Us. “I love sushi far too much that I don’t think I could. I mostly do egg whites, but I don’t think I can cut [them] out of my diet completely.”
Greene explained these dieting choices to Us, saying, “I found that I have really high cholesterol. My doctor’s kind of baffled because she’s like ‘You’re lean, it doesn’t make sense,’ so I just started really looking at it and kind of playing with taking certain things out of my diet to see what shifts my cholesterol and levels in my body.”
The model and Khoury, 27, tied the knot in July 2018 in San Jose, California. Five months after their nuptials, Greene told Us exclusively that they wanted to have children “a little bit further down the road” so they could focus on themselves as a couple.
“I’m going to be a great mom,” she told Us in December 2018, noting that the Australian TV personality will be an incredible parent as well because “his mind and his soul are so beautiful.”
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model gushed about how “patient” Khoury is with her in December 2019. “I like structure and I like things really planned out,” she told Us at the time. “So, if anything isn’t kind of falling into, like, [place] it stresses me out a bit. He has to remind me that, like, it’s OK if things are messy, something things will fall into place.”
Greene went on to clarify, “But no, for the most part, I don’t think I’m that much of a nightmare. I also really need my matcha in the morning before I talk to anyone. So, he’s patient with that.”
