How Ashley Greene Stays Fit for Twilight

Ashley Greene's New Moon Diet

If you were part of New Moon fever this weekend, I’m sure you were transfixed as I was watching the epic battle scene between the Cullen family and the Volturi. The young actors demonstrated dynamic moves coupled with super human strength that were spectacular to watch on the big screen.

Moves like that don’t come easy, Twilight actress Ashley Greene told Us Magazine. Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the films, said that prepping for the role involved a lot of training — up to four hours a day! In addition to working out with a personal trainer every day, she also had an intense week of fight training with the rest of the New Moon cast. No wonder all the actors look ripped.

To find out how else Greene stays in shape,


Greene was pretty candid in admitting another reason she’s looking so svelte — 12 hour workdays don't "leave too much time to eat." Before dismissing Greene as an actress who starves herself to look good, the star did say that she ate well and stuck to healthy foods during filming. As for her day-to-day off the set she does Pilates six times a week.


"I do it early in the morning. It wakes you up, and it's kind of refreshing," said Greene, who is headed to London in a few months to begin filming the thriller The Apparition. "And that is basically it. Sometimes cardio. I am not a big weight person because when I do weights I build muscle mass."

Hardly eating, working out six hours a week... yeah sounds real healthy, Ms. Greene.

I know EXACTLY what Ashley Greene is talking about when it comes to "bulking up"...just look at her legs. They're bigger than the average starlet, even though her legs are toned. Mine are exactly like that. If I work my legs too much, my jeans can barely go up my thighs.

Im going to agree with zeze and anon. I have played sports my whole life I can not do weights, if I do my i bulk up quiet quickly. So I have to do only cardio and things like that.

Some girls can bulk up with weights, not bulk up like a man, but get too muscular (like Jessica Biel or Evangeline Lilly arms) instead of just lean (like Kate Beckinsale), when they use weights. sheesh...

What LaurenG22 said. Also, doing weights (as women) does NOT bulk up the body. It has the opposite effect. I speak from experience.

I hate when women say that weight make them bulky. Also, 12 hour work day on set has a LOT of downtime. I am sure they all take their requisite smoke breaks :oy:

right. I DO eat, but rarely within a 12 hour time span, and I work out. sounds like a denial to me.
