Ashley Greene, born February 21, 1987, is an actress and occasional model who is most famous for portraying Alice Cullen in the film adaptations of the Twilight novels.
Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Greene initially wanted to be a model until she told she was too short. After high school, Greene moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting.
Her major breakthrough came when she was cast as Alice Cullen in the Twilight series. Greene portrayed Alice in Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
However, sadly for Greene, her acting career never really grew after the Twilight series, as she’s only had a handful of roles since in films such as Wish I Was Here and In Dubious Battle, which was directed by James Franco.
Greene has also lent her voice to video games as she portrayed Batgirl/Barbara Gordon in Batman: Arkham Knight.
As a model, Greene appeared in the 2010 issue of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition wearing nothing but body paint.
