Ashley Greene covers Manhattan Magazine November 2012 on the cover of which she’s wearing underwhelming black, but at least she’s a little more season-appropriate than Cameron Diaz on the cover of British Elle.
Inside of the issue, Greene is called a “Signature Beauty.” Just like Marie Claire called her “The World’s Prettiest Vampire” and British GQ called her a “Goddess.” With a straight face. She’s pretty, clearly, but she’s hardly overwhelmingly-beautiful or deserving of such vaunting.
Greene is second-tier in her own franchise, which is why she covers magazines like Manhattan while Kristen Stewart covers Vogue.
Greene also appears to pine for what might have been if she had landed the lead role over Stewart, against whom she competed to be Bella Swan, and whose star has not dulled even after the cheating scandal. Since Greene over-blows her fame in every interview.
And Greene talks about relationships in these interviews, probably because she was going through a break-up when she sat for most of these a few weeks back. This time, rather than whining about how she’s too famous to date despite being one of the least-successful/ prolific of her co-stars (unless you count Kellan Lutz and no one does), the 25-year-old is talking about what she needs from a guy.
On relationships: “You need someone who is going to help you make that better version of yourself. I need someone who is strong but supportive and who loves me… someone who isn’t afraid to call me on my s**t.”
On New York City: “I like the energy… it’s so contagious and I feel like you just have to be productive here. It’s very artistic and inspiring.”
On one of her favorite actresses: “I love Cate Blanchett. She’s extremely classyand has this knack for taking on roles and being very, very strong, but also embedding vulnerability. She has this relatable quality. I like the path she chose.” – via Manhattan Magazine.
