likes short shorts! Can you blame a girl with legs like hers? It may come as no surprise that the brunette beauty originally aspired to be a model but found her true talent in acting. Once Ashley was cast as Alice Cullen in the
series back in 2008, we’ve seen those legs everywhere…thankfully. From short shorts to babydoll dresses to mini skirts, Ashley’s outfits are often calculated to make us admire those gams. Surprisingly, the
actress is only 5’5″ even though it’s pretty easy to think otherwise. In celebration of Ms. Greene’s 25th birthday, here are 25 pics of Ashley’s fabulous lower limbs, barely covered by the shortest hemlines in her closet.
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke has talked plenty about the sexy vampiric romance between her stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, but have you ever wondered how she feels about bringing them together? Apparently the answer is: kind of on the fence. When talking to New York mag about Kristen’s split from previous boyfriend Michael Angarano, Hardwicke admitted, “He’s a wonderful actor. He was in Dogtown, one of my favorites, so I felt pretty bad because I love him and they were such a great couple.” Oh, Catherine. Well, we guess sometimes the truth hurts. For example, when Robsten fans storm your house with torches and jab you all over with pitchforks. All. Over.
Since we’re being candid, what was Catherine’s first impression of the Twilight script, one of five projects Summit Entertainment offered her in 2003 as her possible next movie? “Every one of those scripts sucked,” Catherine reveals. “Oh, Lord, did they suck.” Twilight, however, was still intriguing enough to catch her eye. “I thought the script was horrible, but then I looked it up on the Internet, and I thought, Okay, it’s based on a book and people tend to like it. There’s gotta be something there.’” Oh, oh, now give your secret opinion on Taylor Lautner next! Is his chest just too nice? Kind of, right?
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 was beloved by fans for a lot of reasons: the wedding, the honeymoon, the honeymoon, the honeymoon, and a whole lot of drama and blood and guts at the end. But it was still lagging behind its older Twilight siblings in box office numbers. New Moon had a bigger opening weekend ($142.8 million vs. $138.1 million), and both Eclipse and New Moon had bigger overall domestic box office grosses (Eclipse raked in $300.5 million, New Moon $296.6 million, Breaking Dawn Part 1 $280.3 million), according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.
But per Deadline, Summit announced that the global box-office gross for the fourth flick is $701.3 million so far, and once the final tallies are in, including the receipts from China and Japan, it will top New Moon’s $709.8 million worldwide gross. So is that a big vote for Bill Condon from the international audience? Does it reflect the gradual growth of Twilight fandom over the years (we imagine young kids catching onto their older sisters’ enthusiasm, friends giving into other friends’ relentless endorsements, etc.)? Is it the lure of Edward and Bella finally doing it? That extra foreign boost usually goes to big, explosive action movies that don’t need a whole lot of translation, and Eclipse was the movie with all the big battle scenes, so we’re curious about this number. Share your theories in the comments and on Twitter! And while you’re at it, let us know what you’re excited to rewatch when Part 1 comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 11.

You know who we had a blast talking to on the People’s Choice Awards red carpet? Tia (on the right) and Tamera Mowrey, stars of your favorite childhood show Sister, Sister, that’s who. They were fun and adorable and finished each other’s sentences like proper twins. And they have their own reality show on the Style Network, called Tia &Tamera, of course, so you too can OD on their cuteness. Tamera confessed she was excited to see Robert Pattinson because she’s a huge Twilight nerd (welcome to the club, girl), and that led us down the road of gushing over Rob and Kristen Stewart‘s cute couple steeze. And gush we did!
“They’re both really edgy and romantic at the same time,” Tia explained of Robsten’s appeal. “They’re romantic, but it’s not that corny, whimsical kind of romance.”

The folks at Forbes certainly know what they’re doing. Usually, we turn to them for the big lists, like the Celebrity 100, the World’s Most Powerful Women or the Hip-Hop Cash Kings. But those take a lot of work, and sometimes, they just need something fast and easy (we’re just assuming here, ’cause you know, we’d never be so gratuitous about our lists). So, they do things like this week’s Hollywood’s Top-Earning On-Screen Couples, which is topped by Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, followed by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
We’re very happy to see the Harry Potter and Twilight stars at the top of the list, natch. But it does feel a bit like the editors sat down and said, “What kind of list can we do that will feature the stars of Harry Potter and Twilight, and maybe also Pirates of the Caribbean and Transformers?” They admit themselves that the whole thing is based on numbers from Box Office Mojo (the total earnings from movies with the stars as a couple from the last five years).
Still, here we are, looking at the list. So they’ve hooked us again! We’ll give you the full list below, but also we want to come up with some kind of challenge for the Forbes editors, just to make sure they stay on top of their game. Maybe the next feature should be something like America’s Highest-Grossing Puppet Shows or Top-Earning Subway Mariachi Groups. That‘ll take a little shoe leather.
