‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’s’ Ashley Greene Strips Down To Lingerie For ‘Esquire’ Magazine (PHOTOS)

Ashley Greene is taking a complete 180 from her wholesome character in The Twilight Saga series.

In a super-sexy photo shoot for the August issue of Esquire magazine, the 25-year-old — who plays Alice Cullen in the series — dons delicate lingerie ranging from lacy boyshorts to silk bras.

But Greene says she didn’t make it big in Hollywood because of her looks.

“In my second year in Los Angeles, when I was eighteen, I wasn’t getting any bookings, so I stopped going out, stopped partying,” she said. “It was a matter of getting work.  I had to focus.”

Today, she’s one of Hollywood’s hottest A-list actresses after starring in the acclaimed Twilight saga, the final installment of which —  The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 — will be released on November 16. She’s also landed roles in Pan Am and Butter.

Esquire isn’t the only magazine that Greene is covering — she also appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan this month.
