Ashley Greene Talks to 'Esquire' About Life After 'Twilight'
Post-Twilight life looks sunny for the franchises's two breakout stars: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Sure, the pair may not always receive glowing reviews for their post-vampire efforts, but the roles don't seem to be waning either. K-Stew headlined Snow White and the Huntsman, while Robert starred in both Bel Ami and Cosmopolis.
Meanwhile, fellow Twilight co-hort, Ashley Greene, is determined not to have Alice Cullen be her most storied role. Wearing a white cotton bra and loose-fitting jeans in Esquire, Ashley tells the magazine she's thankful Twilight gave her time to grow up.
"What Twilight gave me was years to consider how I wanted to work otherwise," she explained. "You make five movies with the same people and they really do feel like family. But film those same five movies in different locations, and none of the locations ever really feels like home."
In between the four Twlight flicks, Ashley scored a part in the canceled TV series, Pan Am, and a role alongside Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore in the box office bomb, LOL.
Yet she credits whatever show biz success she's racked up as the fruits of a party-free labor.
"In my second year in Los Angeles, when I was eighteen, I wasn't getting any bookings so I stopped going out, stopped partying," she told the magazine. "It was a matter of getting to the work. I had to focus."
So focused that she's not even allowing romance get in the way.
"I'm not one of those girls who sits at home thinking, 'By 25, I have to be married,'" she tells the August issue of Cosmopolitan. "Right now, I'm like, 'I'm 25 — I need to book my next movie!'"
