The 25-year-old actress chatted it up about avoiding the paparazzi, her style and keeping close with her Twilight co-stars. Check it:
On getting along with her cast mates on set: “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 brings us all back together.”
On keeping her private life private: “You can’t control the paparazzi. But if you go to Coachella you’re going to get photographed. Whereas if you’re at home, walking down the street, you probably won’t. It’s something I’ve learnt to navigate my way around but I try to keep my private life private.”
On her evolving style: “My style has definitely evolved. When I first started out I think I was a little all over the place and the clothes kind of wore me rather than the other way round. But now I’m at the point where I’m comfortable dressing for me, I know what works and what I like. Give me a great pair of skinny jeans, a t-shirt and a black blazer, teamed with an amazing Chanel necklace and great bag and I’m happy!”
Here is what the 25-year-old Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 actress had to share with the mag:
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 sh*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 classy and 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.”
The 25-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about dating in the limelight.
“When I’m dating a guy and he says, ‘I don’t want press’, and then says, ‘Let’s go to Katana for dinner’ – I’m like, ‘Really? You don’t want to just walk down the street to some dive? You don’t want to get photographed but you want to go to a place where you know there’s paparazzi?’” she shared.
Ashley added, “Dating is a hard, hard thing when you have this job. Sometimes I wish I could just go back to Florida and, like, date my home-town boyfriend.”

While on a bit of a break from the fan event, the 25-year-old actress answered some questions about her time in the Rainbow Nation.
“It’s great being in South Africa, I’ve had so much fun,” Ashley shared in the video below. “I’ve gotten to go on safari and I’ve met a lot of fans, everyone’s super nice. I love it and I’m really, really excited that I got to come.”
“I have a career and a fan base, which happened almost overnight,” Ashley told NY Daily News. “It will be sad next year when we don’t do another one, but it’s also exciting. Twilight opened up a lot of doors and opportunities, and to actually have the time to be able to go and do them is going to be nice.”
Ashley added of her dream roles: “I always wanted to do a period piece. Unfortunately, they are very expensive. If Kirsten Dunst hadn’t already played Marie Antoinette, that would have been ideal.”

The 25-year-old actress chatted with the glossy about her constant challenges, and first-class travel. Check it:
On being on the celebrity fast track: “It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day. But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk. After the movie [Twilight] came out, some people said, ‘You changed.’ And I said, ‘I haven’t changed, dude. Your opinion of me has changed because I’m working on this film.’ Trust me, my parents would let me know.
On the challenge of focusing on both career and personal life: “I’m always here and there – everyone in my industry is – and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting. I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish. You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”
On traveling first-class for Twilight and being a working actress: “Twilight has ruined me. When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost. I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”
