Ashley Greene Talks Dating, Changing, Flying First Class

by at . Comments

In just a couple years, thanks to a certain enormous movie franchise, Ashley Greene has become a household name.

But the Twilight Saga beauty - who is locked in a VERY close Who Would You Rather with Olivia Wilde - makes it very clear in the November issue of Marie Claire: she is NOT a changed young woman.

“It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day," Greene tells the magazine. "But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk.

"After the movie 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."

Among other topics touched on? The difficulty with dating and the awesomeness of flying first class:

Why she can't find a man: “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.”

Why Twilight has "ruined" her: "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.”
