Ashley Greene had a busy day in New York City on Thursday (November 15). The 25-year-old first went to NBC Studios to appear on The Today Show to promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2. Then later on she dressed up for the premiere at the Landmark Sunshine Theater.
Co-star Kellan Lutz was also there to pose on the red carpet. Ashley looked sophisticated in a dark blue Donna Karan dress.
Greene explained in an interview that she had to build up muscle for her role.
“My body holds muscle really easily, and I tend to bulk up [if I’m always lifting] weights. I did side planks for my obliques, which are one of my trouble areas. And traditional planks tone your back so you don’t have that little bit of fat hanging over your bra. Ugh!”
She added, “A lot of people like to be supertiny, but I don’t want a child’s body—I want a woman’s body that is extremely fit. It’s so much sexier.”
On fashion she prefers simple outfits at home.
“I live a dual life,” she says. “On the red carpet, it’s complete glam. But at home, I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. Simple can be beautiful.”View Slideshow »»
