Ashley Greene is larger than life and not just from “Twilight. She towers over New York’s Times Square on billboards for her new campaign for DKNY jeans. The jeans couldn’t be any tighter.
Greene says she’s in the best shape of her life after training for stunts in the latest “Twilight?” movie, “Breaking Dawn, Part 1,” with Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart.
“You can’t get more New York than that,” Greene said about the billboards.
Greene signed with the brand in October, and the monster billboards officially kick off DKNY’s Spring 2012 ad campaign. Photographers Inez van Lemsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot the photos.

“I did not know it was going to be that big,” she told FashionEtc. “It’s humongous! I don’t think in my wildest dreams I would have thought I’d be a part of something like that. It’s very exciting.”
Greene said she and brand head Donna Karan bonded at a fashion show and have been cooperating on fashion ever since. “We get along, and we stand for the same thing,” she told the Web site. “[We both have] a very positive message to women of empowerment.”
Ashley has parlayed her athletic good looks into a lucrative modeling career, and loves fashion.
She was also recently named a rep for Mark Cosmetics.
She posed naked in body paint for Sobe fitness water last year and the campaign was featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
“I like to shop; I like fashion,” says Greene. “I like things that are not too super-girly but have a feminine twist. And I’m excited by amazing dresses!
“It’s nice because, in everyday life, I like to be comfortable and put together, but on the red carpet, I love being glamorous. The whole dressing up thing is every girl’s fantasy.”
The actress is currently dating Broadway’s Reeve Carney, multiple sources confirm to UsWeekly. Carney currently stars in Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
She previously dated Jonas Brothers band member Joe Jonas.
“I want to do another action film because I had a ton of fun when we did stunt work [on Breaking Dawn],” Greene, 24, tells Company magazine.
“We did fight training and personal training. We worked our butts off and pretty much did every stunt we possibly could ourselves.”
