Not all vampires are bad – just ask Twilight star Ashley Greene!
The 22-year-old who plays clairvoyant blood sucker Alice Cullen, sister to Edward Cullen played by Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson, took a break from filming the sequel, New Moon, in Toronto to host the Donatemydresshref=”http:// prom dress drive at Saks Fifth Ave in NYC March 14.
“I don’t think a lot of people realize how big a deal prom is to a 16-year-old girl,” Ashley tells OK!. “I think it’s something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.”
The Twilight star says she didn’t always have the fame and fortune that’s come with the film’s success.
“I had to buy my own dress and we didn’t have the money,” she told OK! at the event where she encouraged girls to donate their prom dress to girls in need. “I’ve borrowed dresses before so I kind of know what it’s like to be in that position. I’m lucky enough right now to not be as effected by our economic decline and there’s a lot of people who aren’t so lucky.”
Ashley made time for the event during her two-week break from filming New Moon, which is expected to be released in November 2009.
Fans can bid on dresses donated by Hollywood starlets including Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Ashley!
