“Twilight’s Ashley Greene has labored in the shadows of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but in the end she may have the best of both worlds as the saga winds to an end with “Breaking Dawn, Part 2.”
Greene, 25, goes from vampire to vamp in the December issue of British GQ magazine, where she has won legions of fans as the darling Alice Cullen.
But Greene is much more than her “Twilight” character. She’s one of young Hollywood’s most glamorous actresses with a natural beauty that draws comparisons with Jane Russell and Grace Kelly.
Ashley Greene Vamps Up British GQ
She’s very attuned to her god-given good looks and seems to have her feet on the ground in the wake of her rise to fame. “I don’t want to be in the press for the wrong reasons,” she tells the magazine. “I want people to say ‘You’re a good actress,” not ‘I saw you at that party.'”
She also thinks she got the best of both worlds from her role in “Twilight.” “I’m lucky because I don’t get typecast,” she says. “Rob [Pattinson] is so screwed.”
Her post-“Twilight” film work includes star turns with Miley Cyrus in “LOL: Laughing Out Loud,” and “The Boom Boom Room,” with Christopher Walken, Shirley MacLaine and Adam Beach.
The film will be Ashley’s sexiest role yet following her sizzling lesbian sex scene with Olivia Wilde in “Butter” about suburban angst in the Mid-West played out through a butter carving competition.
For the GQ photo shoot, Ashley poses in swimwear by Michael Kors, Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana for photographer Benny Horne. Stylist Zanna Roberts Rassi sets the scene with Ashley at the beach and in a car.
Makeup artist Tyron Machhausen went with dark eyes and neutral makeup. Fortunately, Ashley’s sexy freckles weren’t lost to excessive airbrushing.
