Ashley Greene: “Now I’m in this realm with a lot of highly respected actresses”

Ashley Greene covers the March issue of Lucky Mag to promote, I don’t know, her role in a five episodes of “Pan Am”? Of course, she wasn’t terribly popular on that set, and the show is probably going to get cancelled anyway, which is a terrible waste of star power considering that Greene has called herself the next Angelina Jolie.

Naturally, the Lucky journalist had no idea what to do with Greene, so the interview focuses primarily on her role as Alice Cullen in The Twilight Saga. Yet sadly, I’ve omitted most of those paragraphs because consist mostly of Lucky’s characterization of Alice as a huge, “major” role in the franchise that could never have been portrayed by any other actress. Really? I won’t go there except to say that Alice is pretty interchangeable in the films and really isn’t a demanding role, but neither are any of the other characters in the franchise. In the interview, Ashley namedrops her Butter makeout session with Olivia Wilde because any form of sensationalism is all that Ashley has at this point in her career. And she’ll gladly remind you that her career is on an upswing since the end of Twilight too:

On Her Craft: “I won’t lie, there are times when I’m like, ‘Why is this so hard?’ You come off a high like Twilight and then you get dropped back down to reality. Twilight has given me something to skyrocket off of, But now that it’s ending, there’s so much work to be done. And if I don’t do it, then Twilight‘s all I’m ever going to be known for, as great as it is.”

She’s Leading Lady Material: “Basically I went from ‘dying to get a gig’ to ‘dying to get the gig that everyone wants,’ so now I’m in this realm with a lot of highly respected actresses, which is an amazing place to be, but also kind of terrifying. I mean, I think I’m doing all right, but the main focus is trying to solidify my spot in Hollywood.”

On Her Start: “My mother put me in modeling classes because I had low self-esteem. I was friends with older people, so I was always around someone more mature who boys responded to. I think that kind of messed with me. She never actually wanted me to be a model; she just wanted me to feel good about myself. But then there was a chain reaction. All of a sudden I wanted to be an actor, and of course, my mother was like, ‘Oh, great, what did I do?’ When I took the modeling classes in Florida, they had us walk in crazy heels and do the whole runway thing. And actually? That’s been very helpful, because I can walk and run in pretty much anything! And they will have you run in heels in films, as ridiculous as it sounds.”

She’s No Lohan: “I was like ‘Oh, I can go out and do this and do that,’ and it took me about five seconds to realize ‘If you do that, you’re not going to book jobs, and there are 10,000 girls who want your job.’ It’s all glitz and glamour in Hollywood, and you want to be part of it. And the deadly thing is that you meet people who do have the money and do have fame and are in a position to not spend every waking moment working toward getting a job, and it’s easy to feel like you can do it too, when really you haven’t earned it. You can either socialize or you can study your script, and luckily I learned that pretty quick!”

On Makes Out With Olivia Wilde in Butter: “It wasn’t that awkward. It’s the same idea when you’re having to kiss a male costar and it’s not real. Olivia is such a cool chick and very professional. So we were just messing around and cracking up in between scenes, and it ended up being really fun. And now I’m the envy of every straight male everywhere!”

[From Lucky Mag]

Well, the producers of Butter really hit the casting nail on the head by letting two famewhores paw at each other. Other than that, Ashley probably won’t be around in Hollywood for very long. In a few years, Ashley will be much less like the next incarnation of Jolie and much more like Jessica Biel, and she’ll be talking about how she auditions for everything but never gets the roles that she really wants.

    Either I’ve been living on another planet, and haven’t seen anything of note (OF NOTE) she had done… Or she is delusional.

    Let’s go with she is delusional.

  2. HotPockets says:

    It’s funny you mention Biel because this is exactly who AG reminds me of, even look and style wise.

    • Sarah says:

      Has anyone really read the whole thing? She mentions quite couple of times that she hasn’t earned it yet and if she doesn’t work hard and fast enough she will only be remembered for Twilight, because that’s all she has really done.

      I think it’s just a matter of poor word choice with ‘realm’ in that title sentence, what I got from it is she went from dying to get ANY gig to dying to get a gig that highly respected actresses want, so she’s in competition with those now which is terrifying.

    First rule of bigging oneself up:

    Get other people to do it for you. Riles people up less.

    Second rule of bigging oneself up:

    No. Really. Get other people to do it for you.

    Otherwise, you look delusional. Like now.

  4. Tiffany27 says:

    Is she serious? She’s the girl from Twilight that’s not Kristin Stewart. Girl, sit all the way DOWN.

  5. Sasha says:

    I’m not a huge Twilight fan but I swear Alice has relatively limited screen time in these films??? Doesn’t she just see into the future now and then? Isn’t that IT? There is no CRAFT involved in that. I hate people who talk about their CRAFT before they’ve barely worked. Meryl Streep has a craft. Ashley Greene.. not so much.

  6. the original bellaluna says:

    Apparently, she’s found WO’s stash of delusion. Put down the shot glass, Ashley, and step a-way from the cameras.

  7. The Original Mia says:

    Delusional twit. Thanks for the laughs. Needed that today.

  8. Asli says:

    Meh – Don’t care enough about her to form an opinion.

  9. Granger says:

    I’m so happy to know that all I have to do to give my daughter a chance at future career success is enroll her in modelling classes so she can learn to walk in heels.

  10. Kimberly says:

    hahahahahaha

    f’ing liar!
    She is not leading lady material!! Maybe in a few years when she gets a more womanly face, but for now she can keep figuring out what end the guy in charges wants to stick the . . .microphone in so she can get the part.

    Because we know she doesn’t get parts on her acting. She sucks harder at acting than getting roles if you know what I mean.

    Just take a fucking acting class, remove the stick from your ass more than once a month, and stop repeating what your people are telling you because it’s their job to get you a job and tell you how great you are, when you’re not.

    This chick is the brown haired Blake Lively. There is a special section of actresses who will not really be serious actors or get any respect from the public. Ass Greene and Blake Lively are only 2 of this special club of actresses the execs like to fuck around with by throwing them a bone part, not a boner this time, so these type of chicks feel like they are taken serious. . .

    Sorry I just hate it when hollywood force feeds actresses that obviously cannot act down our throats like we’re stupid.

  11. mssnarnd says:

    Granted – I am not a 20-something; but, I didn’t even know who this was.

  12. kay says:

    Alice is not a major part of the movies, but she is in the book. She’s a great character really, very sweet and not at all conceited.
    I always thought the role was miscast.

    Interesting that the 2 stars of the movies do not talk like this at all, but the ones who know they suck (greene and lutzy) do.

    Immortals was such a stupid movie.

    • Amanda G says:

      I agree, Alice was one of the more tolerable characters in the books. Unfortunely all of the Cullens got pushed aside in the movies. It’s a shame because their back stories were interesting. It seems as though the movies have only benefited Taylor (although he’ll be forgotten soon), Rob, Kirsten and Peter. This girl will not be on that list!

    • jess says:

      I was gonna make a comment on how Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner all seem to be down to earth and dont seem to take themselves seriously. If they did act the way Ashley and Kellen act it would be more understood but for the life of me I can not figure out why the two of them have such huge egos, I mean…the CGI wolves get more screen time then they do.

  13. jermsmom says:

    Her acting is absolutely horrible – and she is just one step away from being a (Nicholas Cage) mouthbreather. But, because i am feeling nice today – the clothes she is wearing in that shoot are gorgeous.

  14. lucy2 says:

    Can’t blame her for trying, but if all you’ve done is that Twicrap, you shouldn’t be allowed to use the word “craft”.

  15. mucha says:

    Alice is important character in the books, and is beloved in the fandom. I thought she was cast perfectly for her role, but in real life she doesn’t have enough personality to be leading lady whatever. The movies she chooses are totally bland.

  16. cmc says:

    Wow, why do we have such a hate-on for Ashley Greene again?! She seems harmless. Sure, she’s getting a little big for her britches, but she says this:

    “It’s all glitz and glamour in Hollywood, and you want to be part of it. And the deadly thing is that you meet people who do have the money and do have fame and are in a position to not spend every waking moment working toward getting a job, and it’s easy to feel like you can do it too, when really you haven’t earned it. You can either socialize or you can study your script, and luckily I learned that pretty quick!”

    She’s working, or trying to work. She’s not acting like she’s more famous than she is- she’s trying really hard to get jobs so she can be more secure. And she straight up says she hasn’t earned the right to be a layabout, and is earnest about acting and working. Breath of fresh air, if you ask me.

  17. Agnes says:

    Is it me or does she look totally different in every other pic? Like it’s not the same person. Is that Photoshop? I don’t get it.

  18. kit says:

    I think she’s very pretty but her attitude and personality make everything about her really bland

  19. emma says:

    Ashley seems great. I don’t get the hate. Lot of woman hating for no reason. She’s an ambitious young lady and this should be applauded.

    • Carolyn says:

      Virtually all in Twilight are supremely lucky they were chosen for their roles because none of them can act their way out of a paper bag except Dakota and all their characters have been rendered as one-dimensional. Agree with others who note the Cullens were much more interesting and likeable in the novels. A number of other actors could have got the roles and made it their own. There’s nothing special about most of the Twilight actors. It gets up people’s noses when they act entitled and delusional. As Ashley comes across in interviews. She’s probably really nice in real life and naturally desperately wants her success to continue. She doesn’t want to be known just as being that girl in Twilight.

  20. demian bichir says:

    Delusional!!!She’s the new Jessica BIEL.

  21. NinaG says:

    I know she has a habit of putting her foot in he mouth or say down her throat, but she looks really beautiful in theses pics, I can’t be the only one who thinks so?

    • Coucou says:

      Ha,ha “NinaG” did you get that from the Nina G. character from an old Sex and the City show? I loved that character!

      And YES, i agree with you, i think this girl has incredible star power and that she is just drop dead gorgeous. In that last shot, she reminds me of Stephanie Seymour.

  22. Meanchick says:

    Craft? In a realm with other “highly respected actresses?” This is a joke, right?

  23. Aiobhan says:

    The only good thing that I can say is that her clothes are nice. The two photos with the flower wall behind her are pretty.

    I will just pretend that the bullshite that came out of her mouth does not exist. My friend made me go see the last film that came out in November (I missed her birthday, so that movie was my punishment) and if I had not just read that she was in the film then I would never have known who she was. It would make more sense if Anna Kendrik was saying something like this. No surprise if Stink-eye Stewart babbled that crap out. But she is just crazy.

  24. Lee says:

    I don’t think Meryl Streep is losing any sleep…

  25. sarebear19 says:

    She is seriously like the budget version of Jessica Biel. Which I believe has already been said on this site, but is worth saying again. Because Biel is budget. Which makes Greene even more budget. Which just goes to show how sad it is that she thinks she is the next big thing.

  26. samira677 says:

    I only read this article because I thought for sure this site took the quote out of context just for a headline. I’m shocked that the quote is in context. Does she really believe she’s on the same level as Carey Mulligan or even Jennifer Lawrence? Somebody really needs to tell her that she’s only in Twilight.

  27. cr says:

    The delusion is strong with this one.

  28. hateonit. says:

    ohhhh please. she is not the next big thing. please let her go away quickly. she wasn’t important in twilight and she’s never going to be important in anything else. she’s….um unique looking but I don’t find her stunning at all. nothing really to work with average slim frame average face average acting. she needs more than average to be remembered. and a lot more to become a leading lady.

  29. irishserra says:

    What in the hell is wrong with her mother that she handles her daughter’s self-esteem issue by putting her in modeling? How about teaching her child that happiness in life is not dependent on how “mature boys” respond to her? Gah! This girl (and her family apparently) are all kinds of wrong. She should fit in well with the delusional Hollywood nutcases.

  30. HA! says:

    Sorry Greeny…I just don’t see what’s so special about her other than having played in a tween delusional movie called Twilight…and Avon printing her face in their catalogues. You don’t have that charisma in you Ashley…

  31. Marianne says:

    I wouldn’t say that she’s quite in the realm of highly respectable actresses yet. All she’s really known for is her role in Twilight. And she’s not even the main character. I also know that she is/was the face of Mark Cosmetics (My mom gets Avon catalogs lol).

    Besides Anna Kendrick, I think she will do well (for the Twilight supporting cast). I think everyone else will fade out. Not saying she will be like the next Meryl Streep, but I think she will have a steady career.

  32. Sarah says:

    Has anyone really read the whole thing? She mentions quite couple of times that she hasn’t earned it yet and if she doesn’t work hard and fast enough she will only be remembered for Twilight, because that’s all she has really done.

    I think it’s just a matter of poor word choice with ‘realm’ in that title sentence, what I got from it is she went from dying to get a ANY gig to dying to get a gig that highly respected actresses want, so she’s in competition with those now which is terrifying.

  33. Rose says:

    What kind of mother puts their kid into modelling classes to INCREASE their confidence?!? Nutty

  34. Hawk says:

    Wow, she’s in that Megan Fox “look at how great I am” mode.

    And we all know how Megan’s career is going.

  35. OhMyMy says:

    I’ve been watching Pan Am and I don’t recognize her from it. I looked it up on IMDB and I still don’t know who she is.

    I’ve seen the Twilight movies but I’ve not a huge fan…she plays one of R Patz siblings…right?

  36. Emily says:

    Ashley Greene is a total famewhore, awful actress, looks like an funky elf with that horrible nose, built like a stocky linebacker, arrogant, and I repeat awful, awful, awful actress. Her “acting” in Twilight makes me cringe.

    The arrogance and conceit that she even dares to include herself with “highly respected actresses” is a slap in the face to anyone who has spent just one day in acting school. Something this girl obviously has never done.

    When Twilight is over, she will be forgotten and unemployed, pulling out her paparazzi calling card, trying to still be relevant.

  37. Sunday Knittle says:

    Looking great!! And so grown you certainly dont look 17 anymore!! Good job!!!
