Ashley Greene was in NYC last night to join MTV's Suchin Pak at the Glass Houses for a chat about the actress's work with Mark cosmetics. There were fans listening in the room as well as online as Ashley chatted about her style, collaborating with the company's m.powerment campaign for young women, and, of course, being a part of the Twilight family. She's not joining costars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on their romantic Rio shoot, but Ashley revealed she actually had gone out for the role of Bella. Ashley had lots of fun speaking about the craze over the series and confessing to be on Team Edward. She said:
- On getting her start in Twilight: "I originally went in for Bella . . . At that point, I didn't know that much about the book series. But then I read them to prep for the audition and instantly fell in love and was like, 'I have to be a part of this.' I was so wrapped up in the story, I was just as fanatic about it as everyone else. So, I auditioned for Bella . . . Actually, I auditioned a few times. They told me I wasn't right for it and I was heartbroken — I really, really wanted to be a part of the franchise. Then they came back to me with Alice and I absolutely love the character so I auditioned a few more times and against all odds, I got the part. I screamed, I cried. It was very exciting."
- On realizing that people go crazy for Twilight: "Usually, when I'm in a hotel room, generally around press time it gets pretty crazy. I remember once on the European press tour, all these people screaming and crying. It's amazing and crazy and it's something you just can't dream up."
- On being Team Edward or Jacob: "As much as I adore Jacob, I think I'm going to have to go with Team Edward. I am a vampire, too! Jacob is our arch-enemy."
- On her first jobs: "Wow, I've had a lot of jobs. I've been working since I was 14. My first job was at a dry cleaners. I worked as a waitress. I worked at Lucky Strike. Even from a young age, I was super independent and wanted to make my own money. My parents were like, 'OK, go ahead then.'"
