Being in one of the most successful movie franchises of all-time has its downsides, according to Ashley Greene.

The 25-year-old actress, who has played the role of Alice Cullen in the Twilight saga since 2008, has opened up to Marie Claire about her road to fame courtesy of the box office juggernaut alongside Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

"Twilight has ruined me," Greene admitted.

How so?

According to Greene, she's been spoiled by celebrity perks.

"When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me," the actress says in the November issue. "It is just not worth it to buy a first class ticket, because of the cost."

She continued, "I'm lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that's important because I want to know that I don't have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don't want to and that I'll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs."

However, Greene -- who's since appeared in films like The Apparition and Butter -- says she hasn't changed since becoming a household name.

"It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day. But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don't want to be a jerk. After [Twilight] came out, some people said, 'You changed.' And I said, 'I haven't changed, dude. Your opinion of me has changed because I'm working on this film,'" the star said.

She added, "Trust me, my parents would let me know."

Greene's Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is due in theaters Nov. 16.
