“If he did know, he just wasn’t in to me.”
Turns out the chemistry between Alice and Jasper in Twilight wasn’t just on-screen — yup, Ashley Greene was into her co-star Jackson Rathbone IRL.
Speaking on her podcast, The Twilight Effect, Ashley explained, “I had a big old crush on Jackson Rathbone while we were filming.”
Apparently, the feelings came on pretty swiftly after the two met: “He’s super cute, and a Southern gentleman, he sings, he taught me how to swing dance!”
“And he’s supposed to be my lifetime love onscreen and I was like, ‘This is gonna be easy.’”
“I feel like he had to have known,” she added. “If he did know, he just wasn’t in to me.”
“What’s a harmless crush? It was super fun,” Ashley continued. “I dated people within the five years — I wasn’t just chilling, hopelessly waiting for him!”
That being said, both Ashley and Jackson are now married to other people — Ashley is currently expecting her first child with husband, Paul Khoury, and Jackson shares three kids with his wife, Sheila Hafsadi.
