The past decade has been a whirlwind for Ashley Greene, who, after only a handful of day-player gigs, landed the role of a lifetime playing Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” saga. But with the five-film series wrapped, the 27-year-old actress is still experiencing firsts: This past weekend, she made her debut appearance at the Venice Film Festival, where her latest film, the horror-comedy “Burying the Ex,” premiered. “Now it’s about choosing the right projects,” she says. “You build [your] resume and there are pros and cons to it, but [then] you don’t want to take anything and everything.” We caught up with Greene on a recent stop in Chicago, where she attended the W Chicago Lakeshore Renovation Reveal Party.

ROAD TO HOLLYWOOD

“I wanted to be a lawyer or a psychologist [growing up]. I’m from Jacksonville, Florida, and where I grew up there’s not as much influence artistically as in some of the bigger cities, so I didn’t really even think [acting] was an option. … Then stuff started happening. My parents said, ‘If you get an agent, find a manager, we’ll let you go out to [LA] for a year.’ I managed to — every time they were like, ‘Ehh, maybe you should come back and go to college’ — I’d book a day job, or do something to be able to stay out there.”

 

ROLE CALL

“When I moved to LA when I was 17, I didn’t realize how competitive it was. … But that worked in my favor because I wasn’t scared [at auditions]; it was just fun. Same thing with ‘Twilight’ — I didn’t realize the weight of what this film was. I auditioned four or five times and it came between me and this other girl who always books the roles that I want, and I ended up booking it, which was awesome. I was like, ‘Finally!’ It was worth the wait.”

 

STAR-STRUCK

“Cate Blanchett would definitely make me star-struck; and Meryl Streep, of course. She just seems like a powerhouse. I worked with Alan Rickman — he was a little intimidating at first because he has that kind of dry, English sense of humor and sarcasm. I played his daughter, so I think he was a little nicer to me.”

 

IN MY FREE TIME …

“Recently, I’ve been making jewelry. My friends and I will go downtown and get pieces — we’re doing a lot of beads and some metals and learning how to do clasps and trying everything. I really want to get [the tools] to engrave stuff. It’s fun to play around without any kind of pressure surrounding it.”
