Ruven Afanador/LuckyAshley Greene kissed a girl — and she liked it. The "Twilight" actress has shared the screen with plenty of hunky leading men, like Kellan Lutz and Sebastian Stan, but it's her lip lock with Olivia Wilde in the March 16 comedy "Butter" that she says "ended up being really fun."
"It wasn't that awkward," Greene tells Lucky magazine in its March issue. "It's the same idea as having to kiss a male co-star and it's not real. Olivia is such a cool chick and very professional. So we were just messing around and cracking up in between scenes … And now I'm the envy of every straight male everywhere!"
And with a dating history that boasts Joe Jonas, Chace Crawford, and Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill, she's also the envy of women everywhere. But the pretty brunette, who is currently dating Broadway's Spider-Man, Reeve Carney, adds that she's careful not to let romance distract her from her work. "I'm so laser-focused on my career, because when you're dealt these cards, if you don't kind of run with it, then you're an idiot," Greene says. "What's most attractive to me is someone who has the same amount of drive as I do, someone who's equally busy."
With the "Twilight" saga nearing its end (the last film in the franchise, "Breaking Dawn — Part 2," hits theaters in November), the 24-year-old has been hard at work establishing her place in Hollywood with more diversified roles, like "LOL," opposite Demi Moore and Miley Cyrus, and "The Apparition" with Stan and "Harry Potter" star Tom Felton. "'Twilight' has given me something to skyrocket off of," she says. "But now that it's ending, there's so much work to be done. And if I don't do it then 'Twilight' is all I'm ever going to be known for, as great as it is."
Greene, who also had a recurring role on ABC's "Pan Am," adds, ""Basically I went from 'dying to get a gig' to dying to get the gig everyone wants. So now I'm in this realm with a lot of highly respected actresses, which is an amazing place to be, but also kind of terrifying."
In addition to acting, Greene — who started out as a teen model in her native Florida — has also proven herself to be quite the fashionista on the red carpet. But the DKNY ambassador has suffered for the sake of looking good. She tells "Lucky" about the time she wore a dress with boning so tight "it bruised my rib cage." Worse yet, when she attempted to use the ladies room, "I couldn't unzip the dress and I couldn't pull it up," Greene recalls. "Oh and also my feet were numb because I was wearing these ridiculously high Brian Atwood heels that were beautiful but—it was just the most painful experience ever!"
