Three Reasons Why We Love Ashley Greene

Men's Health |

She plays a pale, bloodsucking vampire in the Twilight series, in real life she’s our perfect woman.

Wholesome and down-to-earth, Greene enjoys the outdoors and is ready for any kind of adventure. And, of course, it also may have something to do with the way she fills a bikini. If her beauty can’t persuade you to watch the teen bloodsucker series, you can still see her in the upcoming movie Butter. She shares the screen with Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Garner – which means the film might spontaneously combust with that amount of hotness. But, before you start daydreaming about that, read these reasons why we love Greene, her bikini goodness aside.

She’s low maintenance

Even though she spends a lot of time in designer gowns, treading on plush red carpets, she is most comfortable when dressing down. “At home, I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. Simple can be beautiful,” says Greene.

She doesn’t want to be stick thin

“I don’t want a child’s body – I want a woman’s body that’s extremely fit,” explains Greene. “It’s so much sexier.” We couldn’t agree more. When it comes to eating, she sticks to healthy staples like fish and veggies and doesn’t starve herself. “I’m a big believer in feeding your body what it needs. Deny yourself something and you will end up shoving your face full of it,” says Greene.

She’s competitive and loves a challenge

Growing up, Greene used to take part in all the same sports that her older brother Joe did, and she earned lots of awards. One example: tae kwon do. She was so good that she wasn’t allowed to spar with the other girls. “I’m a competitive little sucker,” says Greene. Our kind of woman.
