Lovely Ashley Greene lands on the cover of BlackBook‘s November 2011 issue. In the interview with the magazine, the 24-year-old actress chats about her work ethic, being rumored to be dating everyone, having a tough dad, her Sports Illustrated photoshoot, tricky age in Hollywood, being down to earth and good fortune, and many more.
There has been a lot of attention surrounding the love life of the ‘Twilight’ actress especially since she broke up with Joe Jonas last March. Ashley has been paired to everyone, including Jackson Rathbone and ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth McFarlane. “I’m not an actress, I’m a professional dater,” Greene jokes. “I’m dating everyone! My brother lives in LA and won’t even walk outside a restaurant with me. He’s like, ‘I don’t want to be romantically linked to you,'” she told BlackBook.
The talented actress admits that she has a rather crazy work ethic and that she has practically worked everywhere. “I worked at the dry cleaner across from my school, I worked accounts payable for a company, I did hosting, I worked at a bowling alley, I worked at a boutique. I worked at a hotel, I worked at a restaurant, I did modeling, I worked everywhere. And I didn’t get fired!”
Ashley was featured in the Sports Illustrated’s 2010 Swimsuit issue. “My team asked them to go easy on the Photoshop. I’m not perfect, I have flaws,” she told BlackBook. As for the pink bikini painted on her body, Ashley jokes saying that, “I painted it on myself.” Then she continues, “Actually, it took 12 hours, and the artists are amazing. I was debating whether or not to do it, but I talked to my dad. I thought it was very artistic.”
Speaking about her dad, Ashley confesses that she and her brother were raised with strictness. “My dad used to be in the Marines, so no one is going to give him flack. At 14, I was being a little brat, I thought I knew everything, and my dad was like, ‘I own your bed, your TV, everything.’ There was a lot of discipline, and with what I’m doing now, I’m glad for it,” the actress says.
Ashley also admits to be really strong at sports. It’s no wonder she is constantly spotted by paparazzi exiting the gym. “Growing up I was very competitive with my brother. He did martial arts, and I was a tomboy. I got into martial arts and won medals. Once on the trampoline, I hit my leg and it just snapped. They put pins in it. I broke my arm twice, I broke my femur twice, I split my head open twice,” Greene told the magazine.
