Ashley Greene Biography (Age)
Ashley Michele Greene was born on February 21, 1987, in Jacksonville, Florida, as the daughter of Joe Greene and Michele Greene (née Tatum). Her father Joe had worked in the U.S. Navy for a while before he started his own concrete business. Her mother is an insurance broker. Ashley began her high school education at the University Christian School but later graduated from Wolfson High School, which she attended from grade 10 on.
Ashley has an older brother named Joe to whom she is very close. As a young girl, she was a kind of a tomboy and trained Taekwondo. As a teenager, she struggled a little bit with her self-confidence but became more confident after she started hanging out with girls who were more mature than she was. To build up her self-confidence, her mother enrolled her in modeling classes. However, because of her smaller body size, Greene could not continue to work as a model.
She considered pursuing a degree in psychology and law but tried advertising after modeling failed. While she was acting in commercials, Greene fell in love with acting and kissed her law degree goodbye.
Ashely was very brilliant in school and was able to graduate early before she was 17 years old. After that she looked for an acting career and as such moved to Los Angeles, California. While auditioning for roles, Greene worked in a restaurant to make a living. She began playing small roles on television shows such as Crossing Jordan, Mad TV, and Desire. Three years after reaching Hollywood, Greene made her big breakthrough with the role of Alice Cullen in Twilight. She had originally auditioned for the role of Bella Swan, which went to Kristen Stewart.
The film immediately put Greene in the spotlight and since then she has maintained her importance in the film industry.
Her Net Worth
Ashley starred in all five films in the Twilight series, which together brought in $3.34 billion, on a budget of only $385 million. The films are undoubtedly Greene’s highest-paid performances. She earned $1.25 million for each of the last two films in the series. Her net worth is estimated at $10 million.
Who Is Her Boyfriend?
Ashely Greene has had her fair share of romance in Hollywood. She has been dating Australian TV announcer Paul Khoury since 2013. The couple was together for three years before they got engaged in December 2016. They were married on July 6, 2018, in San Jose, California. The Wedding Magazine brides were the first to announce their wedding on the evening of the wedding day.
Although it was a small wedding, a handful of celebrities, including Lauren Paul, Aaron Paul, Josh Duhamel, and Evan Ross, were among the guests at the outdoor event. The couple enlisted the services of celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss. Greene wore a wedding dress designed by Katie May that was later to be transformed into a Windi Williams Star piece for the reception.
Greene’s husband Paul was born on September 6, 1988. The Australian TV personality began his career as a musician. He was a member of the Melbourne-based band called Gravel, for whom he played bass.

Prior to Paul Khoury, Ashley Greene was in other relationships that became known in the media. Greene briefly dated gossip girl star Chase Crawford in 2009. In 2010, she had a love affair with Joe Jonas Brothers member Joe Jonas. Their relationship lasted for about a year and reportedly Joe Jonas lost his virginity to her. Greene then moved on to Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the musical lead of Reeve Carney, before meeting Paul.
Ashley Greene is of average height, a trait that was a certain limitation for her when she wanted to start her career as a model. Greene was told that she was too small and should consider advertising instead. While shooting commercials, Greene discovered her passion for acting, and the rest is history. She stands about 1.5 meters 5 inches tall.
