The “Twilight” alum, who has a small but significant role in the Zach Braff film, also talked about how her character is reflective of the title and the importance of the movie’s Kickstarter based fan support.

[WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Wish I Was Here.]

Ashley Greene is only in a few scenes of Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here, but the Twilight alum plays a significant role in Josh Gad’s character’s storyline.

Gad’s Noah, the brother of Braff’s lead character Aidan, begins the film shut off from his family and other people, holed up in the trailer he lives in. But as he pursues his Comic Con-attending neighbor Janine, played by Greene, he begins to express himself more, though he’s unable to reconnect with his estranged father, played by Mandy Patinkin, who’s dying of cancer. Ultimately Noah confesses to Aidan’s daughter Grace that he’s afraid and finally visits his estranged dad before he dies.

Greene says she thinks her character allows Noah to emerge from his isolation.

“She is the vehicle for him, I think, to be able to express himself and find happiness and find who he wants to be and kind of succeed,” Greene tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I think she’s a very important part to Noah on his journey to finding that. …Together I think they, kind of without even knowing it, work as a team to bring him out of his shell.”

“I’d imagine it would be in a Twlight movie and the two of us would be having vampire love,” Gad tells MTV News about his sex scene with Ashley Green.

It’s not easy being Greene. “I’m constantly losing my keys in my purse,” confesses Twilight alum Ashley Greene, 27. “The other day the valet was like, ‘Um, miss, we can’t move your car,’ and I started digging frantically,” the costar of Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here (out July 18) admits to Us Weekly. What items did the actress, who dates Australian TV personality Paul Khoury, find while rifling through her Bulgari satchel?

The Queen of Clean 

“I constantly eat in my car, so I keep Oral-B Glide floss with me. And I won’t leave my house without Dove deodorant or the Honest Company’s hand sanitizer. I shake a lot of hands!”

Here Comes the Sun 

“My friend Cara turned me on to the company HydroPeptide. I carry a really nice sunscreen that gives my skin an iridescent sheen.”

Snack Attack

“I’m never without pistachios or almonds. Sometimes I’ll pack Popchips because they’re pretty guiltless– if you’re going to eat a potato chip!”

Lucky Charm 

“I try to keep jewelry out of my purse because I’ll end up losing it, but I do have a Lokai bracelet that signifies to stay hopeful and stay humble.”

The Eyes Have It 

“I have tried a lot of different mascaras, but I always come back to L’Oreal’s Voluminous. I’ve had the same tube forever.”

Cold Comfort 

“I love Foundation Tissues. They have skull and flower designs on them. They’re cool and kind of girlie!”

Ashley talks about her character, on being in a Kickstarter-funded film, on the story, on working with Zach Braff, and on the significance of the title. Enjoy!

normal_HQ_117.jpg (266×400) It may seem like the dust has only just settled on the Twilight franchise—because in the two years since the film series officially ended, 27-year-old Ashley Greene has never fallen off our radar. From her sleek red carpet style to her role in last year’s indie CBGB, Greene hit the ground running (literally—we caught up with her last month before she ran a 10K in Central Park!) after shooting wrapped. And this Friday, she’s back on the big screen in Zach Braff’s long-anticipated follow-up (not sequel) to Garden State. Wish I Was Here, written by Braff and his older brother Adam, stars Braff as Aidan Bloom, a mid-30s struggling actor/family man trying to deal with his father’s terminal cancer. The film also stars Kate Hudson as Braff’s patient wife, Mandy Patinkin as his regretful father and Joey King as his religious daughter. Josh Gad plays his misunderstood genius of a brother who wants to impress his neighbor, played by Greene, at Comic-Con because she is “a character designer of full-size plush toys.” Read on for our interview with Greene.

Lucky: What were your thoughts on Garden State? Were you a fan before you signed on for this project?

Ashley Greene: I really enjoyed and loved Garden State. Zach always does a really good job of making stories and characters that people really relate to. And, of course, I loved the soundtrack just as much as everyone else. When I heard that this was not a sequel, but a follow-up, and that it has the same general feel as Garden State but is set in Aidan Bloom’s mid-30s dealing with deeper heartfelt issues, I noticed that Zach was still able to add in bits of comedy at the right time. The movie really does make you laugh and it does make you cry, and it still leaves you feeling good when you finish the film.

So much of Garden State was about struggling to find meaning in your mid-20s. As someone at that age, have you ever felt that way?

I’ve struggled to try to make the right decisions and to figure out where I’m supposed to be at multiple times in my life. I’ve set arbitrary goals that I didn’t necessarily meet and have had to deal with that and figure out who I was and what I wanted to be.  I don’t think that’s something that’s ever goes away—Zach was able to make the transition to playing a character in his mid-30s with a family who has to make decisions that don’t only affect him.

Your character Janine is into cosplay (costume play, usually with sci-fi, comic book or anime characters) and spends most of her time onscreen in a furry costume. What’s the most elaborate costumes you’ve ever worn, in movies or real life?

This furry costume is one of the most elaborate costumes I’ve ever been in. When Zach said “cosplay,” I thought of all those pictures of girls at Comic-Con in these really cute getups. But then I walked in and saw this huge and hilarious furry costume instead! But one year for Halloween, I had a custom-made peacock costume that was really neat, with these real feathers on it. I had the hair and makeup and everything to go with it and I felt like that was the most dressed up I’ve ever been. I’ve always intend to do these grand costumes for Halloween, but I never quite get there.

Former “Book of Mormon” breakout Josh Gad has an “intimate scene” with “Twilight” babe Ashley Greene in their film “Wish I Was Here.” But shooting it was more dangerous than sexy.

“There is an intimate sex scene, where I wear an astronaut suit and Ashley wears a furry outfit,” Gad told us at the movie’s premiere on Monday.

“In real life I would say it’s very possible you might asphyxiate yourself if you do that. I wouldn’t recommend it .?.?. It turns out having sex in an astronaut suit is not as easy or as enticing as it sounds.”
