Ashley Greene may be finished with Twilight, but she’s still proving to the world that she is no one-trick pony!
The 25-year-old actress is beginning promotion on her new movie The Apparition with a sexy photo shoot by Marvin Scott Jarrett for Nylon Magazine. Set to hit theaters on August 24th, the horror film also stars Sebastian Stan and Tom Felton.
In addition to the fashionable spread, Ashley got a chance to talk to the mag about her career and her plans post-Twilight. Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon also gave us more scoop on his stunning star.
On the struggle she underwent while trying to make it big as an actress:
“I realized if I really wanted to start booking jobs, there was no half-a**ing it. I had to devote everything to it and so I did. Directors liked me but didn’t think I could be the lead in a movie because they had no idea who I was. So they’d put me in smaller roles. And then Twilight happened. I was working at the Belmont Cafe in LA, got the call, and two weeks later was rehearsing. Right when I was cast, my IMDb STARmeter went through the roof- all of ours did, and we hadn’t even done anything yet! Now I have to remind myself that not everything is going to be like that.”
On reaching the end of her ‘Twilight’ days:
“I’m excited to move on to the next thing and take advantage of all the opportunities we’ve been given. But at the same time, it’s kind of weird- we’ve been doing this for four years.”
Director Bill Condon on Miss Greene:
“The movies always reveal something innate in someone, and with Ashley I think it’s a strong sense of sweetness and openness. From the time I met her, she’s seemed older than her years, with a self-possession and a poise that reminds you of actors of a different generation.”
