When Breaking Dawn: Part 2 opens this week, Ashley Greene hopes fans can concentrate on the big screen action – and forget about the off-screen drama surrounding the film’s two main stars.
Of course, over the last several months Twi-hards have been enthralled with the ups and downs of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson‘s all-too-real breakup due to her cheating scandal and eventual reconciliation.
Asked if she thinks audiences will be affected by the couple’s issues, Greene, 25, tells Seventeen, “I don t know. Hopefully, it won t taint it and people will still be able to enjoy the movie. I think a lot of people see us as our characters; I really want them to still be able to do that.”
Greene – who has had some high-profile romances of her own, with singer Joe Jonas and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark star Reeve Carne – says she understands still feeling love for an ex.
“I certainly have [been in love],” she tells the magazine. “I can still love an ex as a person, regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well.”
As for any behind-the-scenes gossip from the set of Breaking Dawn, Greene reveals that the fun-loving cast “secretly coordinated a surprise dance-off during a scene.”
“We were all in on it, but [the director] Bill Condon didn t know,” says Greene. “[All the vampires] were supposed to charge at each other and destroy each other, and instead we just started dancing! Everyone did it – the Cullen clan and probably 20 vampire extras! It was such an amazing way to end it all.”
