Over a crazy-hard hike, Twilight star Ashley Greene talks getting strong without bulking up, staying body positive in a critical world—and actually liking to hear the word no.

“This is the part I was telling you about,” Ashley Greene says, pointing down at the canyon below. We’re hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains, high above the fast-paced world of Hollywood, and the views at the top are stunning: clusters of lavish homes, lush trees and a blue sky that looks like it came straight out of a Crayola box.

It doesn’t hurt that it’s a perfect, 84-degrees-and-sunny California day, and that up here, it’s just us, a dusty trail and a few random hikers who don’t seem to recognize that there’s a movie star in their midst. There are also no paparazzi—only a guy and his big, fluffy dog, which Ashley (who has four dogs of her own) stops to pet. “Hey, cutie,” she says, scratching the dog’s head before heading back uphill.

This hiking trail, located less than 10 minutes from her home, is a regular part of the 28-year-old’s fitness regimen and a place she comes to clear her head. “Part of working out for me is having the ability to break away from all the stresses of the day,” she says. “Up here, it’s so pretty—you feel like you’re not in L.A. at all.” Then she adds with a laugh, “Don’t give away the location!”

It makes sense that sporty Ashley—who, fittingly, is the face of Oakley women’s eyewear—needs a private escape from the daily pressures of her acting career. In 2005, when she was just 17, she left her mom, dad and brother in Jacksonville, Fla., and moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. In 2007, she hit the jackpot by landing her best-known role to date: Alice Cullen in the Twilight saga, a part she went on to play in five blockbuster movies released over five years. In her latest film, Burying the Ex, she plays Evelyn, a girlfriend from hell “who also happens to be a zombie. Evelyn just takes it to the extreme,” she says—and when it comes to her workouts, so does Ashley, considering that an hour and a half into our hike, she has barely broken a sweat.

Ashley heeft met het britse online magazine FlavourMag een interview gehad over haar laatst uitgekomen film ‘Burying The Ex’.

Ashley Greene is most famous for her role as Alice Cullen in Twilight, which actually made her an instant star but since the end of this franchise Ashley has starred in a number of TV shows and Films.

Her new film, Burying The Ex, which is a comedy horror, see’s her coming back from the dead to be with the man she loves.

We got the chance to have a very brief chat with Ashley about her new film and what it was like being a part of one of the biggest teen romance franchises in Twilight.

We are about to see you in the comedy, horror Burying the Ex where you play Evelyn, a psychotic overbearing ex-girlfriend who comes back from the dead and gives your ex hell! Why did you pick this role?

It was absolutely something I had never done even remotely close to it. With a storyline like this I think with Evelyn you get to play a Jekyll and Hyde and you get to play both extremes with this character. For me it was really fun to take someone who is hard strong and is maybe overbearing but kind of ground her and give people the sense that she does have a good heart, the things she is doing is more out of insecurities than having any malice towards anyone. That was really interesting for me and I think the melding of a kind of quirky comedy and a horror film is something you don’t see a lot, it was a really interesting and unique storyline. Playing the zombie that isn’t just this kind of mindless brain eating monster, Evelyn kind of evolves into this zombie, this is something I had not done been before. I was really excited to be able to bring that to life.

Evelyn is a bit of an obsessive clean/recycling freak, well until she gets a taste for brains, how much of yourself did you bring to the role?

(Laughs) I have the ability to be like that at times, obviously not as extreme. Because she can have such quick switches and flips, from a really sweet loving girlfriend to being this kind of enraged animal. I spent some time doing some research on that and trying to figure out what makes these people the way they are.

What was it like working with the legendary director Joe Dante?

Everyone has heard of Gremlins, so being able to work with a director who created something like that was exciting to me. He and I sat down and had a long lunch and talked about his film and his vision and what I thought was appropriate for the character. He is such a calm, collected sweet, sweet man who immediately made me feel extremely comfortable and I could see the love for what he did in the way that he spoke about this project. After being with him I was like I need to work with this man. It was really such a lovely experience on set. He immediately created this safe environment for us and, of course, had this strong vision for the film that was really open to us collaborating any ideas that myself or Anton or Alexandra had for all of our characters.

Did you manage to have fun on set?

Well I think Anton and I and Alexandra are all young at heart so we had a lot of fun together, we acted like we were still at high school (laughs). I think because of the nature of the film and that it’s just so crazy and outrageous that it was just very light-hearted set.

Your big break came in the form of Alice Cullen in Twilight! What does it feel like to be part of one of biggest teen romance franchises in the 21st century?

(Laughs) it definitely it’s still kind of like mind boggling. It’s been a while since we wrapped it and we obviously were a part of it for 5 or 6 years. It was a large portion of my life out here. It really is still crazy to think about it, it’s something I never in my wildest dreams could even think would happen. I’ve never seen another film affect people the way that Twilight did, so to be a part of that it was just incredible. It’s something I am sure will never happen again (laughs).It was thrilling, at some point we were filming with so many places to go if we weren’t on set we were travelling doing press and travelling around the world. At some points gruelling but it was just one of those things where you just go for it because you know you’re not going to get this opportunity again.

When you first signed up for it did you ever imagine it would be as big as it was?

No, I don’t think anyone did. We were doing like an independent film on the first one, Then all of a sudden it just snowballed into this humongous franchise. I don’t think any of us were quite ready for it. I knew going into it something felt special about it and I knew the effect the books had on me and that the books did quite well and that was the reason we were able to make this film but no I had absolutely no idea it would turn into what it did.

Has that opportunity opened many more doors for you?

Absolutely, I think anyone who did Twilight has created huge pedestals to jump off of. It was essentially my first job really, I did a couple of day player roles on televisions shows, but it was my first time being on a movie set and then you take into account what it turned into and what happened and it was just like a crazy reality I guess. There certainly is that Twilight stigma that came along with it as that’s what everyone knows what skyrocketed into fame and into the spotlight that’s definitely what we were known for, for 5 years. So it’s kind of hard to get out of that shadow, but you have to look at it and say I wouldn’t have so many of the opportunities that I have if I hadn’t of done that film.

I read somewhere that you would love to play a superhero, what would be your dream role to play and why?

I really want someone to come out with a very strong female-driven action type superhero film. I just released a Batman Arkham Night video game, So I think it would be fun to be in a Batman film for sure.

I can see you as a Catwoman

Right, I think Michelle Pfieffer did a pretty stand up job, I don’t know if I could take over that (Laughs)

What else has 2015 got in store for you?

So where about to release the new Batman video game that I played Oracle in so that’s going to be coming out which is really exciting to be a part of. I just finished a film called In Dubious Battle with James Franco so hopefully you can look forward to seeing that soon.

Burying the Ex is available to download and view-on-demand in the UK and USA from June 19th 2015.

Ashley heeft met People gepraat over wat zij denkt over het huwelijk van haar oud Twilight-collega Nikki Reed en acteur Nikki Reed. Ze is meer dan blij voor haar collega die volgens haar heel gelukkig is in haar relatie met Ian. In 2009 is Ashley romantische gelinkt aan Ian toen ze samen een nachtclub verlieten.

As the two enjoy their exotic, multi-locale honeymoon following their April 26 nuptials, Reed’s former Twilight costar, Ashley Greene, can confirm that the couple are basically perfect for each other.

“I’m so excited for her,” Greene, 28, told PEOPLE at an event for Love Is Louder, which was hosted by Bioré, in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “I saw her at Coachella and she was just glowing, and now, I mean, I get why. She’s just so happy. That’s what you have to find in life and when you do find it, I think you should run with it and I think that’s what she did.”

Greene went on to admit that it’s true the couple have not been together for very long – they were first spotted together last July and became engaged in February – but said that doesn’t really matter: “When you know, you know. I’m ecstatic for her.”

Somerhalder, 36, and Reed, 26, work so well together because “they’re both extremely passionate people who care very deeply about whatever it is they choose to put their time and energy into,” said Greene. “I feel like they must connect on that level. I think that they are both lovers of life and that they see the beauty in the very small things.

“Ian’s really, really big into the world around him,” Greene explained. “And animals. They have so many animals! I’m like, ‘Dude, I have four dogs and I thought that was bad.’ Geez. They have a horse, they have a couple of dogs … but, yeah. I think just the love of life is probably one of the core [things] bringing them together.”

Ashley siert de november 2014 cover van het blad Woman’s Health met een prachtige nieuwe fotoshoot door Tom Schirmacher. Edit: Meer outtakes toegevoegd.

Take a look around the gym these days, and you’ll see more than fit bodies with womanly curves. There’s eyeliner. Berry-colored lips. Trendy braids swinging along the row of treadmills. Workout clothes so chic you can wear them to barre or the bar. The new female athlete is a perfect combination of strength and femininity. “Gender roles are changing even in the gym,” says Eileen Anderson-Fye, Ph.D., Robson associate professor of anthropology and adjunct professor of psychiatry at case Western Reserve University. “Power and femininity are no longer mutually exclusive—it’s not uncommon to see a woman hitting a punching bag wearing a flouncy Athleta skirt.

Enter Ashley Greene. With her sexy, sculpted body, athletic background (“I grew up doing a little bit of everything—martial arts, volleyball, diving, and competitive cheer, dance, and swimming”), and cool sense of style (she’s the face of Oakley Women’s eyewear), Ashley is the embodiment of this sporty beauty phenomenon. Take this anecdote: The 27-year-old Jacksonville, Florida, native recently challenged her boyfriend, entrepreneur Paul Khoury, to a car race at a track in Palm Springs—in high-heeled booties, no less. And guess what? She won! “Why shouldn’t you be able to look cute when you win?” Ashley says playfully. The actress—who stars in the upcoming movies Burying the Ex and Staten Island Summer—reveals how she manages to kick butt and look gorgeous doing it.

Ashley heeft een interview gehad met Splash.

The past decade has been a whirlwind for Ashley Greene, who, after only a handful of day-player gigs, landed the role of a lifetime playing Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” saga. But with the five-film series wrapped, the 27-year-old actress is still experiencing firsts: This past weekend, she made her debut appearance at the Venice Film Festival, where her latest film, the horror-comedy “Burying the Ex,” premiered. “Now it’s about choosing the right projects,” she says. “You build [your] resume and there are pros and cons to it, but [then] you don’t want to take anything and everything.” We caught up with Greene on a recent stop in Chicago, where she attended the W Chicago Lakeshore Renovation Reveal Party.


“I wanted to be a lawyer or a psychologist [growing up]. I’m from Jacksonville, Florida, and where I grew up there’s not as much influence artistically as in some of the bigger cities, so I didn’t really even think [acting] was an option. … Then stuff started happening. My parents said, ‘If you get an agent, find a manager, we’ll let you go out to [LA] for a year.’ I managed to — every time they were like, ‘Ehh, maybe you should come back and go to college’ — I’d book a day job, or do something to be able to stay out there.”

“When I moved to LA when I was 17, I didn’t realize how competitive it was. … But that worked in my favor because I wasn’t scared [at auditions]; it was just fun. Same thing with ‘Twilight’ — I didn’t realize the weight of what this film was. I auditioned four or five times and it came between me and this other girl who always books the roles that I want, and I ended up booking it, which was awesome. I was like, ‘Finally!’ It was worth the wait.”

“Cate Blanchett would definitely make me star-struck; and Meryl Streep, of course. She just seems like a powerhouse. I worked with Alan Rickman — he was a little intimidating at first because he has that kind of dry, English sense of humor and sarcasm. I played his daughter, so I think he was a little nicer to me.”

“Recently, I’ve been making jewelry. My friends and I will go downtown and get pieces — we’re doing a lot of beads and some metals and learning how to do clasps and trying everything. I really want to get [the tools] to engrave stuff. It’s fun to play around without any kind of pressure surrounding it.”
