Ashley Greene has a few ground rules for interviews. One, she never comments on whether her Twilight costars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are in fact an item. "If they don't talk about it, I'm certainly not going to," she says.
The actress initially tried out for the role of Bella before being called back to audition for Alice, a character she related to immediately, upon reading the books. "Everyone asks, 'Weren't you jealous?' No, I think that the casting was so spot-on, especially between Rob and Kristen," Greene says.
Greene talks about the Twilight cast as if they were a second family, and about Pattinson as if he were an awkward brother. "Rob. Oh, Rob. He's very endearing, but you've seen his interviews. He's like, 'Ah, I don't know...Oh, God'" Greene bumbles in imitation. Despite poking a little fun at him, she credits Pattinson (she calls him a "phenomenal actor") and the rest of the actors for helping her cope with sudden fame.
