In the summer blockbuster The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Ashley Greene plays a vampire with a conscience. In real life, she’s a
celebrity with a conscience, and on July 31 she’s hosting Super
Saturday 13, the fundraiser where designers sell their wares at steep
discounts to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
For those familiar with the Twilight series (and with its die-hard fans putting The Beatles’ to shame, who isn’t?), Greene,
23, is perfect for Super Saturday: Her character, Alice Cullen, has a
fashion sense as keen as her sixth. Greene herself has received a Young
Hollywood Style Icon award, but it’s the cause, not the clothes, that
matter most to her. “Charity work is hugely important to me,” she says.
“I’ve had family members affected by cancer, and as a woman I jumped at
the opportunity to help raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer.”
She’s also involved in M.Powerment by Mark campaign, which combats
domestic violence; the One campaign, which fights poverty and
preventable disease; and donatemydress.org.
While she’s here for Super Saturday, the Florida native looks forward to experiencing a beach weekend, Hamptons-style—no surprise, considering her jam-packed schedule these days promoting Eclipse,
filming LOL with Demi Moore and Miley Cyrus, premiering The Apparition in the fall and ramping up to shoot Breaking Dawn, the fourth Twilight movie.
“It’s an amazing blessing to be part of Twilight, which has such a
huge, passionate fan base,” she says. “I’m so grateful for the fans and
the opportunity they’ve given us.” For more information about Super Saturday, visit ocrf.org. and http://news.instyle.com/2010/07/29/instyle-hosts-super-saturday-wit...
