Ashley Greene Hopes Robsten Drama Won’t ‘Taint’ The ‘Breaking Dawn’ Buzz

With this month marking the release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” the media landscape has turned into a markedly more bloodthirsty version of Old MacDonald’s famous farm—with sparkly members of the Cullen family popping up here, there and everywhere. (Insert your E-I-E-I-O refrain here.) And few of the cast members from the saga have been more ubiquitous than the Ashley Greene, whose supporting role as Alice has given her just as much star status as if she’d headlined the films along with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Her latest appearance? It’s in Seventeen, where her photo shoot showcased a series of fun, colorful looks and featured the actress perched on a carousel! And inside, she happily dished with her interviewer on relationship drama, her evolving style sense and bidding good old Alice Cullen a fond farewell.

Of course, the relationship drama everyone’s really wondering about isn’t Ashley’s; the much-discussed saga of Robsten is still on everyone’s mind, but Ashley was characteristically cagey about any mention of her costars’ romance. The one thing she would say? That she hopes the whirlwind of gossip surrounding the film’s headliners won’t ruin the franchise for the people to whom it matters most: the fans.

“I think a lot of people see us as our characters,” she explained. “I really want them to still be able to do that.”

About her own love life, though, Ashley was a little more forthcoming—at least insofar as she didn’t mind talking about what she’s learned from the relationships that didn’t work out.

“I’ve definitely been in relationships where I’ve given too much, and I’ve been in relationships where I haven’t given enough,” she said. “I think it’s a work in progress. I have to find that person where it clicks.”

And when it doesn’t? She doesn’t dwell.

“I can still love an ex as a person, regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well,” she said.
