The 'Twilight Saga' star, Ashley Greene, knows you have to make sacrifices in order to become successful, and she confessed giving up partying to get cast in movies.

Ashley Greene says she struggled when she first arrived in Hollywood, as roles didn't come easily her way. As a result, she decided her career would be her no.1 priority: 'In my second year in Los Angeles, when I was 18, I wasn't getting any bookings. So I stopped going out, stop partying. It was a matter of getting to the work. I had to focus'. The actress told Esquire she can't wait to turn 30, as she believes her work options would be wider: 'It's a good age. It's an age of choices. What 'Twilight' gave me was years to consider how I wanted to work otherwise'.

25-year old Ashley Greene moved to Hollywood from Tampa, Florida, after finishing high school with the dream of becoming an actress. She seems to be aware that you have to work hard for a successfull acting career, and her projects post-'Twilight' will depend upon the circumstances of potential work ahead. 'You make five movies with the same people and they really do feel like family," she said. "But film those same five movies in different locations, and none of the locations ever really feels like home.' Greene also told Esquire she has changed dramatically in the past ten years, and her priorities got updated along the way: 'I've changed so much over the past 10 years. What I wanted when I was 16, I didn't want when I was 20, and that's changed to something else now that I'm 25.'

The brunette beauty has a busy schedule currently, not only with the promotion of the final installment of 'Twilight' (which is set for release in November), but also with several films that come out this year. Ashley Greene has just finished shooting for 'The Apparition', and will next be seen in 'A Warrior's Heart', alongside actor Kellan Lutz. She will also star in 'Butter', where she teams up with Hugh Jackman and Olivia Wilde.
