Ashley Greene On Her 'Wish I Was Here' Character Janine: 'She's Embracing Who She Is & Who She Wants To Be'

Ashley Greene packs away her shopping bag in her car after stopping by the grocery store in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (August 5).

The 27-year-old actress looks to have come from a business meeting, as she’s dressed up in a cute LBD and heels.

“She’s kind of a representation of being in that place that ‘here’ is in the title Wish I Was Here,” Ashley told THR about her character Janine in Wish I Was Here.

She adds, “I think all of the characters are trying to figure out who they are, what they want and where they want to be and how to be present in achieving that. I feel like Janine is a character that’s … on the right path to embracing who she is and who she wants to be and allowing her creativity to work through going to Comic-Con and dressing up.”

FYI: Ashley is wearing a Stop Staring! dress and pumps.

She really goes all out for a grocery shopping outing.

# 2

High heels, hair extensions, ridiculous makeup and sunglasses for grocery shopping? Could she make it less obvious she knew she was getting papped?

@Sophia: She was coming from a meeting, but even still, she looks too overdone for a meeting. Maybe she was dressed up for an audition that the casting agents wanted a certain look for….but, if that’s the case, why not pack a change of clothes to put on before you run to pick up dinner? So weird.

She’s becoming like Hilary Duff…their only photographs are of them at the gym or shopping. Paps usually follow celebs who have a hot story going on to see if they can catch them doing something…like they would try to catch Lindsay Lohan partying, Robert Pattinson with a new girlfriend, Kristen Stewart and Rupert , and before that scandal they tried to get Kristen and Robert, they try to get Katy Perry and John Mayer or Diplo or whoever her flavor of the month is…but with Ashley and Hilary, their romantic lives are boring, their careers are boring, and their daily activities are mundane…so I can’t help wonder if they tip off the paps or pay them to take pics just to keep themselves in the public eye. People are right when they say “it’s hard to get famous, but it’s even harder to stay famous”.

Also…Hilary and Ashley are he same age but Hilary looks so much younger and that’s saying a lot considering I look Hilary looks older than 27 (which she will be next month). Ashley’s a pretty girl, but she honestly looks like she could start taking roles where she’s in her early to late 30s. Her playing a teen/20-something days are over…at least they should be.

and what’s wrong with that? not just stepford, plenty of wives can enjoy looking glamorous to do shopping !

# 7

Watch and learn.. It doesn’t always have to be sweatpants

@Jules: @Derek: There’s nothing wrong with looking good to food shop, but she looks like she’s going to a Hollywood luncheon. There’s looking great and then there’s trying too hard.

@Jules: @Derek: I never go out looking sloppy…if I’m coming from work, I have on nice trousers or a pencil skirt and on the weekend I wear a nice blouse and pants or a summer dress and I’ll wear wedges or flats…so I agree that not only stepford wives look glamorous, but I also know that heavy food shopping is a lot of walking so what’s the point of wearing Jimmy Choo high heels, a cocktail dress, red lipstick and professionally done hair plus extensions? Her dress is not a work dress nor a daytime dress…it’s a cocktail dress.

I work at a casting agency and most of the time (if not always) producers / directors want an actress / actor with a clean face as well concentrate on their performances. You do not need to be dressed as required by the paper if you can convince with his performance.
I think how much work it is somewhat exaggerated. Recuerdo his audition for “Gangster Squad” was very elaborate and end Emma Stone showed up in jeans and shirt without makeup and got the part.
If you have talent need not look so elaborate.

@Amanda: My other comment is ‘awaiting moderation’ so in case it doesn’t post… I totally agree with you, and I didn’t mean to imply that dressing up is required for auditions, I just meant that maybe she did do it. Funny enough, you brought up Gangster Squad and other than the dress, Ashley did her hair/makeup ect for that audition and Alyson Michalka got totally dressed up ..cocktail dress and all lol. Just Jared Jr reported about both back when auditions were happening.
