The pitches are going in the right spot, and I've only hit the camera a couple of times. MTV: It must be unusual creating a decades-old romance for the ages between two actors in their early 20s.
My managers told me about the meeting, and there was no script, no breakdown. I can understand why there's such a big fanbase around it. MTV: What's the one scene in the book that you can't wait to see on the big screen? ' They're more concerned with the speed than the aim. I've gotten to see all the Cullen cars, and that was pretty cool. I'm much, much taller than Alice is described, but who is 4-foot-10 anyways? Greene: Yeah, we're trying our best to balance that out, as far as the height thing is concerned. MTV: Which of Alice's characteristics excites you the most?
So I bought the book and read it in a day and a half, and I got hooked and read the full three before I even got cast. Greene: Well, the film's a little different from the book. It's a new experience to get to do that kind of stuff, even though in the book, the fight scene is a little different than in the script. Greene: The first two weeks I was in Oregon was strict training, [and] there was no shooting. Greene: The baseball scene is in the book, and it's a pivotal scene in the story. I've never played baseball in my life, so it was a lot of training. MTV: In the books, the various automobiles are very important. The way they're putting the cameras, it'll be movie magic, I guess. Greene: Well, she can see the future — that's pretty freakin' cool. I also love the fact that she's such a good-hearted character. MTV: She also takes great pride in being a vampire. Alice doesn't remember her past, and I think if anyone has looked into it, she was thrown into a mental institution, because that's what they did in the 1920s when you weren't normal.
But the child died and Esme threw herself from a cliff and was taken, still barely alive, to the morgue.
Carlisle found her and changed her and the two fell in love.
We've made it even shorter, but we do have to work with what looks good on me as well, and that's the hard part of it. The publicity shot has you in a puffy winter coat and black jeans.
Greene: I have the biggest wardrobe of everyone here. I've had a lot of fittings, and we're making this fairy-tale thing kind of modern but still going back to the 1920s. MTV: A bunch of people on our site keep writing that Rachael Leigh Cook should be Alice. Greene: Well, when I read the book, I could see that, and she's the actress that Stephenie put on her site and said, 'This is what I think she looks like in my head,' so that's natural that everyone else would have her in their head as well.

Following in the footsteps of co-stars Kristen Stewart, Rachelle Lefevre and Anna Kendrick, 21-year-old stunner Ashley Greene checked in recently to give us an update direct from the set of "Twilight," an adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling vampires-in-high school book series by the same name.
In the film, Greene plays Alice Cullen, a vampire who has some dark visions and lives among the living.
In the interest of providing a look at the bigger picture, we've created a rough visualization of the Cullen family tree.
