Ashley Greene On Her Casting In Twilight
Alice actress reveals she didn't have much to go on when she got the call...
And the actress, who plays Alice in the vampire saga, revealed to Company that she only had very minimal information at her first audition.
She said: "We had no idea just how big it was going to become. The audition was top secret so all I had was: 'Vampire, 18, girl'.
"I was like, 'What am I supposed to do with this? Are there any directions?' Then my managers were like, 'Oh yes, there's a book'."
And she admitted reading the first two books in Stephanie Meyer's series on the day before her audition.
"By then, I really wanted to be Alice and I worked day and night getting into character," she continued.
"But it wasn't until we got to Portland to rehearse that I realised this thing was going to be huge.
"We hadn't even started filming when my mom called and said, 'Do you know you have a fan site?'"
The 25-year-old also insisted that the cast was one big happy family.
"I mean you hear the horror stories of people not getting along on set. And all of us have such severely different personalities but we all meshed and got along so well.
"I think the experience is so crazy that it bonded us. Now we really look forward to award shows because they bring us all back together."
But she admitted that her fame made it difficult for her to be pictured in public with a man without him being romantically linked to her.
"You know, my brother won't walk out of a restaurant with me anymore because he doesn't want to be linked to me as my new 'mystery man'," she explained.
"Same with my close guy friends. In the beginning, my mom would be like, 'Are you dating this person?' And I'm, like, 'Mom, no! If I'm dating someone, I will personally come and tell you'."
Robert Pattinson has also been on the interview trail, making some surprising revelations.
