Born in Jacksonville, FL, actress Ashley Greene made a strong decision about her career when she was still just a teenager. Opting to graduate from high school early, Greene moved out to L.A. to begin auditioning and quickly found small parts to play on episodes of shows like Crossing Jordan and Shark. Then, in 2008, Greene got her big break when she was cast in the leading role of Alice Cullen in the highly anticipated film adaptation of the young-adult novel Twilight. Still only 19, she was a great fit to play the eternally young vampire girl who has the ability to see visions of the future. She appeared in the 2011 satirical comedy Butter, and the 2012 Miley Cyrus bomb LOL.
