The actress initially tried out for the role of Bella before being called back to audition for Alice, a character she related to immediately upon reading the books. ”Everyone asks, ‘Weren’t you jealous?’ No, I think that the casting was so spot-on, especially between Rob and Kristen,” Greene says. “Dude, I just got lucky in all fronts, because not only am I in Twilight, but the character’s just so damn lovable.”
Greene talks about the Twilight cast as if they were a second family, and about Pattinson as if he were an awkward brother. ” Rob. Oh, Rob. He’s very endearing, but you’ve seen his interviews. He’s like, ‘Ah, I don’t know… Oh, God,” Greene bumbles in imitation. Despite poking a little fun at him, she credits Pattinson (she calls him a ”phenomenal actor”) and the rest of the actors for helping her cope with sudden fame. ”All of us essentially were unknown. So everyone kind of went through this crazy whirlwind [together],’” Greene says. “It was really nice to be able to confide in people who were going through the exact same thing.” The vampires also bonded over a mutual dislike for the makeup and the yellow contacts, which cut off their peripheral vision.
