Ashley Greene Talks Post Twilight Life in Lucky Magazine

Ashley Greene has a number of upcoming projects and a desire to make her career soar post Twilight.

“I won’t lie, there are times when I’m like, ‘Why is this so hard?'” Ashley Greene is saying. “You come off a high like Twilight and then you get dropped back down to reality.”

We’re sitting in a cozy Italian restaurant near Times Square on a rainy winter evening, and Greene—who is best known for playing Alice Cullen, the cheeriest vampire in the Twilight saga movies—is laying out her game plan for making it even bigger in Hollywood.

“Twilight has given me something to skyrocket off of,” Greene says. “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.”
