Ashley Greene on GQ UK, complains of the perils of dating while incredibly famous

Ashley Greene covers the December issue of GQ UK. Incidentally, I can’t believe we’re already talking about the December issues of magazines! This year flew by! 2012 Life Lesson: Everything goes by faster when you’re gossiping about dongs. Anyway, I kind of like this photo shoot. I mean, it’s a men’s magazine so of course they’re going to go for “sexy” over “interesting styling and makeup choices.” That being said, these are some of the prettiest shots I’ve seen of Ashley – she should pose for more men’s magazines rather than women’s mags. Of course, the interview is typical Ashley Greene crap. From the way she talks about herself and her enormous, crushing fame, you’d think she was more famous than Kristen Stewart and Angelina Jolie combined. Some highlights:

Ashley on men using her enormous fame for their own gain: “When I’m dating a guy and he says, ‘I don’t want press’, and then says, ‘Let’s go to Katana for dinner’ – I’m like, ‘Really? You don’t want to just walk down the street to some dive? You don’t want to get photographed but you want to go to a place where you know there’s paparazzi?’”

Dating is super-hard when you’re famous: “Dating is a hard, hard thing when you have this job. Sometimes I wish I could just go back to Florida and, like, date my home-town boyfriend. It’s really frustrating whenever I can’t go and do something because I know it’s going to be on the internet.”

She can’t even hang out with dude friends or her brother: “It’s really frustrating whenever I can’t go and do something because I know it’s going to be on the internet. Like if I go to a friend’s house, they’ll be, ‘She’s dating him!’ It’s like, ‘Oh, am I dating my brother now? Is that what’s happening?’ Or when they write that I was with a ‘mystery man’, and I’m like, ‘He’s gay, by the way, so it is a mystery!’”

On drinking and tweeting: “The worse thing you can do.”

[From GQ UK & Fanshare]

Just last week, Us Weekly announced that Ashley and Reeve Carney had split up, and from the collective “meh” that the news garnered, I’m guessing that most people didn’t care one way or the other. I also think Reeve and Ashley probably broke up a few months ago and Ashley just held off on the announcement, searching for a jumpoff so that she could look so, so desirable. I mean, obviously I think she’s full of herself, but I guess there are a lot of dudes who would love a chance with her. The problem is that most of those dudes are probably pretty douchey, you know?

    LOL! ” Everything goes by faster when you’re gossiping about dongs.” I couldn’t agree more, Kaiser. Really. You remember it was July when Twihard Meltdown happened? Now look at present…We are in November! Oh how time flies! Oh my God! Can’t wait for Christmas!
    Coming back to this article…well, well Ashley, you are really not as famous as you claim to be. All of your movies apart from Twilight have sunk without a trace. So just shut up about guys using your fame to get famous. You will be forgotten once BD2 releases and you have no where to appear for its promotion.
    All the best for your future.

    • Amelia says:

      It’s been a helluva year. Was the Twihard meltdown seriously July? Crikey.
      Then there was the Olympics, TDKR, Crown-Jewel-gate, Royal-Crumpet-gate, Johnny Depp and Vannessa Paradis’ split…

      • FreeSpiritedGirl says:

        Yeah, really, it has been one entertaining year with all the break-ups and cheaters. lol!
        I’m waiting for December 21st. The day when the earth is supposed to be ending.

  2. Gracie says:

    “Enormous fame” um, wut? Girl is B-Iist at the very best.

  3. dooliloo says:

    The unutterably irrelevant Ashley Greene should date super incredibly famous Kellan Lutz. Because Kellan Lutz is incredibly famous, Kellan Lutz predicted he’ll win an Oscar sooner or later, Kellan Lutz loves chemicals, Kellan Lutz helps people at a grocery because Kellan Lutz has time on his hands.

    • Justyna says:

      Haha. They would be so perfect for each other. I’ve said that before about Kellan Lutz but if fits her perfectly too – they both should stop torturing us with their so-called acting and just focus on giving interviews for our entertainment. They are actually quiet right – they are extraordinary in a sense that so little talent combined with such an irrevocable belief in own self-importance is one in a million. There are many famewhores in HW but most of them know exactly how little they have to offer while being glad people are stupid enough o pay them for basically doing nothing. I’m sure these two actually think they are underpaid for their remakable, extremely hard work and Oscar-worthy performances.

    • INeedANap says:

      I think she already did. Or maybe that was someone else?

      I am really hoping for a Lutz/LaBoeuf scandal, incidentally.

    • Steph says:

      Lol I forgot about his side job a a chemist

  4. DanaG says:

    Who is she? Seems like someone is way more famous in her own mind then anywhere else.

  5. Skipper says:

    That last pose is so cheesey and overused. Do men like high waisted underwear?

    • FreeSpiritedGirl says:

      Hehe. I don’t think guys like high waisted underwears. To be honest, guys like girls in just nothing. Lol.

    • Just Me says:

      She’s posing as a retro pinup girl. Yes, men like the whole retro/pinup girl thing. That’s not the same thing as your average, fruit of the loom, high wasted granny panties.

      • Skipper says:

        My husband likes neither

      • Just Me says:

        Different strokes. Mine loves the pinup look. So much so that he got a tattoo of me as a pinup. Also, your husband would be in the minority. Ever hear of Marilyn Monroe? Dita von Teese?

      • Skipper says:

        I think he’s more in the majority – the perves who like skimpy bikinis and porn. You could have phrased your reply in a less haughty tone.

      • Just Me says:

        Excuse me? Less haughty tone? Shall I go find a mirror for you to look into?

  6. Symmer says:

    She needs to shut up.

  7. Ann says:

    Her makeup in this photoshoot is horrible. She looks better when she’s more natural looking. I don’t know if she’s started having work done, but her face looks more angular and harsher here. Maybe its because she lost too much weight.

    I find it hilarious that she is complaining about being papped while on dates. This is the same girl that “dated” Joe Jonas, for crying out loud. I seem to recall lots of engineered shots of the two of them holding hands, at Disneyland, etc.

    • Annie says:

      The bullying she got for dating Joe was horrible though.

    • PrettyTarheel says:

      Excuse me, I had something caught in my throat.
      I’m not sure I would recognize Ashley on the subway. But she’s SO famous.

      • The Original Genevieve says:

        @ Pretty Tarheel…

        Oh girl, you NAILED it! Compliments from a fellow Tarheel 🙂

        Ya know, I think Ashley Greene is absolutely gorgeous. But so is Denise Richards. And Claire Forlani. And Devon Aoki. Soon to be just another pretty girl who tried *really* hard to be relevant, but never quite got the full blastoff from Hollywood or the public. Who knows what the “It” factor is?

        But it would probably help if she didn’t sound as full of herself as Julia Roberts always does. Get some acting chops before pulling the “I’m so famous” trip, Ashley…are ya feeling me? And even then, you’d sound like an a$$hole. Lol.

  8. Sara says:

    She looks really gorgeous in that cover. I don’t know, I don’t mind this girl. Reading those quotes without the bolded added parts don’t make them as offensive.

    • Just Me says:

      Maybe I haven’t followed this Twilight trainwreck enough, but she doesn’t bother me, either. I think she’s pretty. Probably not too bright, but she doesn’t need to be to make it in Hollywood. I think she’s probably famous enough that she gets used by famewhores, so I understand her comments. It’s gotta be tough to try to invest yourself in a relationship only to find out someone was using you as a stepping stone . Like it or not, she’s way more famous than any of us – and I can bet at some point in any of our regular guy ad girl lives, someone has or has tried to use us. JS.

      • Jay says:

        I honestly don’t get the hate either. She’s pretty and a bit vapid. Doesn’t that describe about 90% of Hollywood, both male and female?

        Probably helps that she’s my type so I have a bit of a distaff white knight complex going. 😛

    • Annie says:

      Everyone in Hollywood is an attention whore. You just can’t pick people you don’t like and call them attention whores, and then praise the covers and deals your faves score. They’re all hussling. There are no artists in Hollywood. Just people who want to be movie stars.
      The treatment for this girl has been unfair if judged by her professional choices. It’s silly. She’s been very smart. The only one out of the cast besides Robsten to actually seem concerned about her future. She has a good shot.

      • Minty says:

        NO, not everyone in Hollywood is an attention whore. Absolute statements are problematic.

        Meryl Streep, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Cate Blanchett (just to name a few) seek publicity to a limited extent when promoting a new film or attending an awards show. None of them go on and on publicly discussing their personal relationships to reporters. Nor do they whine about how hard it is to live their privileged lives. These particular three don’t alert the paps every time they go on an outing. They don’t tweet every trivial bit of minutiae that occurs in their lives. But then, they are truly talented actors and their work speaks for itself. It’s their artistic output that keeps them relevant, not their private lives.

        What you wrote is more applicable to the current crop crap of young Hollywood, reality show “stars”, and other celebrities who think they should be in the spotlight, though their minimal to zero talent doesn’t justify the hype or attention.

        In other words, people like Ashley, KStew, Lutz, Lautner, Lohan, Ashton/Demi, the Kardashians, Real Housewives, the late Anna Nicole, and even LeAnn Rimes – who actually is talented, but she shamelessly shares every aspect of her personal life instead of focusing on a music career, which makes her a true attention whore (and stalker) rather than a country singer.

        Also, we can pick and choose who we praise or criticize. Opinions and speculation: that’s the nature of a gossip site. We all have different tastes and because of that, who you like may be someone I don’t care for and vice versa. Celebitchy is much better than other sites because many commenters explain the reasons behind their opinions. They also try to correct any misinformation that gets repeated.

  9. KC says:

    While I think Ashley Greene is nice-looking, I would hesitate to call her ‘gorgeous’. I think she has been on a serious starvation diet. Her face looks skeletal and is not helped by the makeup styling.

  10. Mary says:

    How old is this girl? She needs to stop saying ‘like’ in every other sentence. It make her come off as a ditz. Other than that, I really don’t have any issues with this girl. She’s a support character in a very horrile movie (or series of movies I guess), what else has she been in?

  11. Micki says:

    She must have bought Jessica Biel’s diary and substituted the “incredibly beautiful” problems with “incredibly famous” ones.

  12. Shitler says:

    I hope she’s saving her money.

  13. NerdMomma says:

    I really, truly don’t believe her life is one big paparazzi chase. I’m pretty sure she can go to dinner wherever she wants. I guess when she gets home she googles herself until she finds something. Who are “they” that write about her? Maybe someone is posting on their twitter that they saw her out, but she’s hardly the queen of the gossip blogs.

    So, she’s delusional, but at the same time what a gorgeous body.

    • OhDear says:

      Exactly – she can just not go to certain places and also not call the paparazzi when she does go somewhere. For the time being, I can’t hate on her – she’s not screwing anyone over and she’s just making the most out of the opportunities that came from being in the Twilight franchise.

    • Annie says:

      The problem with the restaurants she just mentioned is that only losers and reality stars hang out there to get papped.

  14. rebecca says:

    I will never understand why she gets so many magazine covers.

    • T.C. says:


      She has a few lines in the Twilight films then hustled her way into making people believe she is really famous. At least this spread looks good, I will give her that much.

  15. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    Compared to KStew, both Ashley & Nikki are the embodiment of Charm itself.

  16. says:

    That is the sh!ttiest shade of coral lipstick that I’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing.

  17. Cody says:

    “I think there for I am”

  18. QQ says:

    I also bet besides the Douchebags and Old ass Producers lining up to tap her Incredibly Famous ass the other ones are, you know, Not Famous Dudes… I Bet That’s a downer for such gorgeous, High Profile woman

  19. FireNgin says:

    I don’t mind her. I think she’s attractive. Also, I don’t mind it when less-famous celebs are putting themselves out there. She needs to fame-whore it up! Better than the celebs that act like they don’t care and want to be left alone, yet still call the paps (I’m looking at you KStew).

  20. Annie says:

    I cannot hate on Ashley Greene. If you’re on a huge franchise like this you need to make the most of it and use it to your advantage if you worry about your career. You don’t drop the ball like everyone else did except Rob and Kristen. You fight for it.
    Nikki Reed dropped the ball completely not taking advantage of this at all. No magazine covers, no projects. She didn’t even try. All she does now is follow her loser husband around (like she follower Paris Latsis) and use her promo appearances to help him promote his album. This should not be allowed.
    Taylor Lautner dropped the ball too. Where is he? He became irrelevant while the movies are still going on, after scoring a Rolling Stone cover and hosting SNL. Now nobody talks about him when the buzz for his body in New Moon was insane.
    Rachelle Lefevre got her ass fired and disappeared completely.
    Jackson Rathbone has no future at all. He’s going nowhere. Knocks up an exotic dancer and that’s the only thing he’s done, also breaking up with his awful band. What else?
    Kellan Lutz is trying too but after the Calvin Klein campaign there hasn’t been more.
    Peter Facinelli has Nurse Jackie, and that’s a damn good show. He needs to stick to tv. Elizabeth Reaser is whatever then, whatever during, whatever after.

    Most of these need to stick to tv. I feel like they want to be movie stars and it’s not gonna happen. Now I don’t think Ashley has what it takes to be a Blake Lively at very least, but I really respect her for trying to get something out of this. Nobody else seems worried about disappearing like Rachelle.

    • name says:

      I agree with most of your assessments, but Rachelle and Billy Burke have definitely used Twilight to propel their careers (check out their IMDB pages) – they just are the type of actors who do not get magazine covers or get photographed.

  21. Veruca says:

    I see a long, healthy career as a Yacht Girl in her future.

  22. annabelle says:

    Who is this chick?

    I’ve never seen the Twi movies, I am assuming from the comments she was in those.

    She and that Lutz kid need a cold, hard reality check.

  23. Apples says:

    I think she’s oddly beautiful.

    I’ve never seen Twilight (I’m kind of afraid of vampires, zombies, etc). Can she act? I know she’ll never be at the Oscars but, can she eke out a career in the B/C level?

  24. meh says:

    Her nose kind of really freaks me out but I LOVE the cover shot. I’ve never found her very attractive but she looks super pretty with all the freckles. Glad they didn’t airbrush them out!

  25. bokchoi says:

    I think she has more lines to speak in that article than she does is all of the Twilight movies COMBINED.

  26. Theresa says:

    As many have already noted, she seems to be of the school “if I say it enough maybe it will be true”. If she believes her own press hard enough, maybe she will have a career. Not a stellar career, just a career at all.

    She only has a shelf life as long as Twilight is on the screen, so she’s working it as hard as she can. I guess you got to give her credit, she’s playing the game like a pro.

    We don’t have to buy into it, we don’t have to support it or do anything to sustain it. She’s not writing the book on famewhoring, she’s an avid student of all the tricks and techniques the business is teaching, and she’s going for magna cum laude! It’s just not going to make any difference, it won’t take a year before the next glimpse of Greene is on DWTS, or some other has-been celeb reality show. If she’s lucky.

  27. UNF Joan Jett! says:

    I don´t care for her or her daping problems, but HER BRA (2nd picture) IS WAY TOO SMALL! Girls, don´t do that, it´s not healthy!

  28. Minnie says:

    Georgeous but shouldn’t talk so much.

  29. Minnie says:

    Georgeous but shouldn’t talk so much!

  30. Katija says:

    There are sixteen-year-old YouTube vloggers who probably get hounded more than this trick.

  31. oivey says:

    What’s up with her nose? Looks like Coco Rochas but fake.
