Twilight star says the only way to stay thin is to not eat

The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Ashley Greene, 22, revealed that she had to watch her weight on the set of the film because her character is supposed to look like a teenager, reports Daily News. The actress, who plays Alice Cullen, didn’t have a hard time keeping slim, however.  She said, “It was really easy. We were working 12 hours a day, so it didn’t leave too much time to eat.” Though her comment about not eating may make her reps cringe, Greene also worked out for the film.  She explained, “We had a personal trainer and then we also had fight training. It was a good four hours a day of training.” When not on set, her favorite exercise is Pilates. “I do it early in the morning. It wakes you up, and it’s kind of refreshing,” she said. Greene will return to her role as a vampire next year in the third installment of the film franchise, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

    Her comments mad her reps cringe???

    Wow…is she the first actress to alter her natural physical appearance by starving herself? lol

    This is done in the endevour that you’ll be choosen for the film so other young woman watching the movie will see how thin she is and try to emulate looking like her.

    I’d rather a girl eat something to keep her energy up than to have a clothes rack for a girlfriend.

    Models used to smoke themselves skinny – I guess that will be the next secret… 🙂

    She’s right. Move more, eat less. That’s the only way to lose weight and most North Americans need to lose weight. Don’t bother with fad diets or trying to eat only one kind of food. The only way to be healthy and lose weight is to eat a variety of healthy food, cut out the sweets and eat less. She’s not crazy skinny, she looks healthy enough. And Kristen Stewart (her co-star) actually looks like she’s put on a couple of pounds. I don’t think any of the Twilight stars look too skinny. But if she has to play a teenager, especially a vampire one, then yeah, she has to maintain her body weight from the first movie. I don’t see anything wrong with her statements.

    the problem with this is not that she is not eatting, it’s that socitey makes a play about how beautiful and skinny we all should be. honestly if your too skinny your at the same health risks as if your over weight. another problem that people do not realize is that these women on screen actually look bigger than they truly are. young women do look up to them as role models and if they are telling people that they don’t eat its stupid.

    its not that eatting less is any big deal its the fact that if you stop eating or eat too little on a diet the first things to go our your muscels. what the world and society needs to pimp out is that hollywood star in general are actually below weight, and need to eat. insstead of pimping young pretty skinny women there should be women who actually look real.

    but that will never happen because make and airbrushing and film all can make you appear better than you really are.

    Holy F*** seriously is she stupid????? And seriously working out without eating properly can be very risky. I cannot believe the things these people do to get into their role is sickening.

    and since when are all teenagers “skinny”…that doesnt define what a teenager looks like!

    Its no wonder young girls and woman are anorexic.When you don’t eat you not only loose muscle,but your organ’s start to shut down.This is a very serious problem in society today,your either to heavy or to thin there’s no in-between!!No wonder girls/woman have no self esteem left!!!!
