Ashley Greene’s Health cover has people talking after she revealed that she has been told she is too fat.
Greene, 28, is covering the July/August issue of Health Magazine, and talks about Hollywood’s unrealistic expectations when it comes to women’s bodies.
“There’s always going to be pressure. Anyone who doesn’t feel pressure is a really good liar. You’re always going to be too skinny or too fat or too muscular, and I’ve gotten every single one of those,” Greene told the magazine.
“Everyone has a different perception of what they think perfect is, and you’re never gonna be able to please everyone. It’s so tough, but once you come to terms with that, it’s a little easier to deal with,” the Twilight star added. “At this point, I care more about what people are saying about my acting ability than what I look like.”

“When I started and got Twilight, I think I was 20, and I was more impressionable. Now I’m 28, and if people are unhappy with the way I look, then they can be unhappy. But I feel strong and healthy and happy,” Greene continued. “Some people, like Gisele Bundchen, have crazy genes, and that’s just what she looks like. But most of us are not 5’11” and don’t look like that naturally.”

Greene admits she has also been criticized over her acting skills. “You can have an amazing performance and a great role, but the second you don’t get the next one, the feelings of rejection and not being good enough kind of come back to you,” Greene explained, according to People Magazine. “Thankfully, I have a good support system. But the struggle is real.”

“I feel lucky to have my family, and friends who will call me on my s***,” she added. “To hear yes all the time is just not healthy … Every single day, no matter how successful you are, there’s always gonna be failure.”
