Interview + new still from THE APPARITION [in theaters August 24th]
MTV News: What's it like to be on the other side of the haunting in "The Apparition," as opposed to playing the vampire?
Ashley Greene: I didn't think of it like that, but you're right! [My character] Kelly is very ... human. Death is knocking at her door, and she is fighting for her survival. It was a different experience than playing an — almost — indestructible character like Alice Cullen. I had to take on a lot more loss, betrayal and vulnerability when playing Kelly.
MTV News: Is there CGI work involved with the spirit?
Greene: I don't want to give too much away, but I will say the visuals are very compelling. Also, it's important to note that this film is a supernatural thriller that really keeps you guessing. The fear is built through suspense and fear of the unknown, rather than the blood or gore of a horror film.MTV News: Have you ever felt like you had a supernatural experience?
Greene: Supposedly, my building in L.A. is haunted. One time, my dogs woke me up, barking, and my front door was open. I had set my alarm before I went to sleep that night, and it hadn't gone off! That was scary.

Ashley Greene believes wearing make-up constantly can be ''dangerous'' for your self-esteem:
If you were Ashley Greene, with paparazzi constantly skulking about, you might not go out without your makeup on. But the "Twilight" star and face of mark Cosmetics is actually very vocal about not becoming too dependent on it. She often forces herself to go bare-faced, just to ensure she doesn't become too emotionally dependent on beauty products.
She explained: ''I think it's dangerous to get too comfortable with needing makeup. You kind of lose yourself, and you don't think you're pretty enough without it. It creates this whole downward spiral.''
"it's sad because I get all this beautiful makeup done," she acknowledged, "but I'm like, 'I've got to go wash my face.'"
Green has famously posed in the past in nothing but body paint. How did she get so comfortable in her own skin?
"I don't know that I've ever met someone who hasn't had some type of insecure moment or stage. You're growing and you're learning, and some days are good and some are bad. I'm definitely the most comfortable in my skin than I've ever been. I understand that a lot of things aren't the end of the world. There were certain things I was very insecure about, but I'm constantly going out there trying to make girls feel they are special, and I think it rubs off on me. And my mom said she loved her 30s. She was most comfortable in her 30s. So I'm looking forward to that."
