Ashley Greene covers Cosmopolitan Magazine August 2012 in which she’s talking about marriage and being left on the shelf. Because, apparently, that’s something that needs to be addressed when you’re 25-years-old, along with dating and babies which are often reduced to arbitrary boxes to tick rather than matters of the heart (judging by frequent questions asked of single women under 30).
On getting married: “I’m not one of those girls who sits at home thinking, By 25, I have to be married. Right now, I’m like I’m 25, I need to book my next movie! My parents have such a beautiful marriage. I’m not someone who takes it lightly. So I’m not going to get married until I know I’ll be with someone forever.”
On whether she has a type: ”It’s about chemistry and a connection. I’ve changed so much over the past 10 years. What I wanted when I was 16, I didn’t want when I was 20, and that’s changed to something else now that I’m 25. Having a type is not for me.”
On travelling for work: “You make five movies with the same people and they really do feel like family. But film those same five movies in different locations, and none of the locations ever really feels like home.”
On whether she’s a party girl: “In my second year in Los Angeles, when I was eighteen, I wasn’t getting any bookings,” she says, “so I stopped going out, stopped partying. It was a matter of getting to the work. I had to focus.”
On Twilight: “What Twilight gave me was years to consider how I wanted to work otherwise.”
On looking forward to age 30: “It’s a good age,” she says. “It’s an age of choices. I know, don’t rush it, right?” - via Cosmopolitan Magazine.
