Ashley Greene says Robert Pattinsonis her biggest inspiration.
The 23-year-old actress plays Robert`s adoptedsister Alice Cullen in the Twilight film franchise. The young star wascompletely unprepared for her meteoric rise to fame, and admits she wasterrified by the attention she started getting after the first film premiered.
While the rest of her world seemed to be spinning outof control, Ashley says she stayed sane by trying to be more like Robertbecause he has remained "completely unaffected" by his fame.
"Robert Pattinson, whoplays my adoptive brother in the Twilight films, has been one of my biggestinspirations," Ashley said. "As a person, he`s not like anyone I`veever met in Hollywood, and as an actor he`s a complete natural. He has no ego.
"Everyone loves him, but he`s una ffected bythat and never seems fazed by the attention that comes his way. He`s notchanged a bit since I worked with him on the first Twilight movie."
Ashley says the level of fan attention has increasedas the vampire drama series progresses. At first, she found her"devoted" fans "slightly terrifying" but has now learntto be flattered by their attention.
"When I started out as an actress I thought onlyabout work. I never stopped to consider what it would be like to befamous," she explained to British newspaper The Daily Mail.
"The Twilight movies attract extremely devotedfans. When they meet me their reactions are sometimes a little odd. Quite oftenthey just stand in front of me and start crying and shaking. It was slightlyterrifying at first, but I`ve learnt to accept it.
"So long as people are responding in a positiveway, that`s a huge compliment to me and to the movies I`m in."
