Early life and education
The parents of Ashley Greene, Joseph Lacy Greene and Michele Tatum Greene, were in Jacksonville, Florida, on February 21, 1987. Her mother works as an insurance executive, and her father, a former US Marine, owns and operates his own concrete company. Joe Greene, her older brother, is an actor as well.
She was raised in Jacksonville and Middleburg, initially attending the University Christian School before moving on to Wolfson High School upon receiving a promotion to the tenth grade.
From an early age, Ashley was naturally bold and tomboyish, always trying to outdo her brother in physically demanding sports like taekwondo. She remembers landing hard blows on the girls in her taekwondo class and being told not to spar with them. Due to her excessively gregarious and untamed personality, she found that she liked to go out with girls who were much older than her. Her mother got her admitted to modelling classes to boost her dwindling self-esteem after she started hanging out with older girls, which severely damaged her self-confidence.
She was advised to focus on doing advertisements instead of pursuing a career in modelling due to her short stature. She starred in advertisements for Apple Inc.’s iPod and Mark Cosmetics. After enrolling in acting classes at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York City, she was certain she wanted to be an actress. At seventeen, she relocated to Los Angeles, where she persevered for nearly three years, taking on small roles in TV shows and films.
