"Burying The Ex" Heading To The Venice Film Festival

Toronto unveiled their first wave of titles on Tuesday, and today it’s Venice’s turn, with the festival revealing what they’ll be unspooling on the Lido. And as usual, it’s an auteur heavy selection, but even we weren’t expecting American horror legend Joe Dante to be given a slot. But it’s a pleasant surprise.

Indeed, his upcoming “Burying The Ex” has nabbed an Out Of Competition slot. The horror comedy stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper, and it sounds like it’ll be something a bit off the beaten path for those in Venice. Here’s the official synopsis: Burying The Ex is an outrageous horror-comedy in which a young man’s romance with his dream girl takes an unexpected turn when his dead ex-girlfriend rises from the grave… and thinks they are still dating!

Ashley On How Her “Wish I Was Here” Character Changes Josh Gad’s Character

The “Twilight” alum, who has a small but significant role in the Zach Braff film, also talked about how her character is reflective of the title and the importance of the movie’s Kickstarter based fan support.

[WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Wish I Was Here.]

Ashley Greene is only in a few scenes of Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here, but the Twilight alum plays a significant role in Josh Gad’s character’s storyline.

Gad’s Noah, the brother of Braff’s lead character Aidan, begins the film shut off from his family and other people, holed up in the trailer he lives in. But as he pursues his Comic Con-attending neighbor Janine, played by Greene, he begins to express himself more, though he’s unable to reconnect with his estranged father, played by Mandy Patinkin, who’s dying of cancer. Ultimately Noah confesses to Aidan’s daughter Grace that he’s afraid and finally visits his estranged dad before he dies.

Greene says she thinks her character allows Noah to emerge from his isolation.

“She is the vehicle for him, I think, to be able to express himself and find happiness and find who he wants to be and kind of succeed,” Greene tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I think she’s a very important part to Noah on his journey to finding that. …Together I think they, kind of without even knowing it, work as a team to bring him out of his shell.”

Greene also says that her character is present in the way the title suggests the characters in the film want to be.

“She’s kind of a representation of being in that place that ‘here’ is in the title Wish I Was Here,” the actress explains. “I think all of the characters are trying to figure out who they are, what they want and where they want to be and how to be present in achieving that. I feel like Janine is a character that’s … on the right path to embracing who she is and who she wants to be and allowing her creativity to work through going to Comic-Con and dressing up.”

Greene says that she met people who do cosplay when the film’s Kickstarter backers came to the set, allowing her to get more insight into her character and fans who go to Comic-Con, which is a different side of the experience than she had attending the event with the Twilight cast.

Greene also appreciated how Wish I Was Here’s Kickstarter campaign allowed Braff’s fans to show their support for his project before it began.

“I understand what it’s like to need and to have that fan support because of doing Twilight … and seeing the huge effect that they had on the success of our film,” Greene says of the movie’s Kickstarter campaign. “It was very interesting to see that from a different angle and see … how his fans were participating and obviously how much they believe in Zach and the work that he does. … It was nice to start out doing a film knowing you already have that built in support of the fans.”

Ashley Greene: What’s In My Bag?

It’s not easy being Greene. “I’m constantly losing my keys in my purse,” confesses Twilight alum Ashley Greene, 27. “The other day the valet was like, ‘Um, miss, we can’t move your car,’ and I started digging frantically,” the costar of Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here (out July 18) admits to Us Weekly. What items did the actress, who dates Australian TV personality Paul Khoury, find while rifling through her Bulgari satchel?

The Queen of Clean 

“I constantly eat in my car, so I keep Oral-B Glide floss with me. And I won’t leave my house without Dove deodorant or the Honest Company’s hand sanitizer. I shake a lot of hands!”

Here Comes the Sun 

“My friend Cara turned me on to the company HydroPeptide. I carry a really nice sunscreen that gives my skin an iridescent sheen.”

Snack Attack

“I’m never without pistachios or almonds. Sometimes I’ll pack Popchips because they’re pretty guiltless– if you’re going to eat a potato chip!”

Lucky Charm 

“I try to keep jewelry out of my purse because I’ll end up losing it, but I do have a Lokai bracelet that signifies to stay hopeful and stay humble.”

The Eyes Have It 

“I have tried a lot of different mascaras, but I always come back to L’Oreal’s Voluminous. I’ve had the same tube forever.”

Cold Comfort 

“I love Foundation Tissues. They have skull and flower designs on them. They’re cool and kind of girlie!”

New Interview with Ashley about ‘Wish I Was Here’, Cosplay & Twilight

normal_HQ_117.jpg (266×400)

It may seem like the dust has only just settled on the Twilight franchise—because in the two years since the film series officially ended, 27-year-old Ashley Greene has never fallen off our radar. From her sleek red carpet style to her role in last year’s indie CBGB, Greene hit the ground running (literally—we caught up with her last month before she ran a 10K in Central Park!) after shooting wrapped. And this Friday, she’s back on the big screen in Zach Braff’s long-anticipated follow-up (not sequel) to Garden State.

Wish I Was Here, written by Braff and his older brother Adam, stars Braff as Aidan Bloom, a mid-30s struggling actor/family man trying to deal with his father’s terminal cancer. The film also stars Kate Hudson as Braff’s patient wife, Mandy Patinkin as his regretful father and Joey King as his religious daughter. Josh Gad plays his misunderstood genius of a brother who wants to impress his neighbor, played by Greene, at Comic-Con because she is “a character designer of full-size plush toys.” Read on for our interview with Greene.

Lucky: What were your thoughts on Garden State? Were you a fan before you signed on for this project?

Ashley Greene: I really enjoyed and loved Garden State. Zach always does a really good job of making stories and characters that people really relate to. And, of course, I loved the soundtrack just as much as everyone else. When I heard that this was not a sequel, but a follow-up, and that it has the same general feel as Garden State but is set in Aidan Bloom’s mid-30s dealing with deeper heartfelt issues, I noticed that Zach was still able to add in bits of comedy at the right time. The movie really does make you laugh and it does make you cry, and it still leaves you feeling good when you finish the film.

So much of Garden State was about struggling to find meaning in your mid-20s. As someone at that age, have you ever felt that way?

I’ve struggled to try to make the right decisions and to figure out where I’m supposed to be at multiple times in my life. I’ve set arbitrary goals that I didn’t necessarily meet and have had to deal with that and figure out who I was and what I wanted to be.  I don’t think that’s something that’s ever goes away—Zach was able to make the transition to playing a character in his mid-30s with a family who has to make decisions that don’t only affect him.

Your character Janine is into cosplay (costume play, usually with sci-fi, comic book or anime characters) and spends most of her time onscreen in a furry costume. What’s the most elaborate costumes you’ve ever worn, in movies or real life?

This furry costume is one of the most elaborate costumes I’ve ever been in. When Zach said “cosplay,” I thought of all those pictures of girls at Comic-Con in these really cute getups. But then I walked in and saw this huge and hilarious furry costume instead! But one year for Halloween, I had a custom-made peacock costume that was really neat, with these real feathers on it. I had the hair and makeup and everything to go with it and I felt like that was the most dressed up I’ve ever been. I’ve always intend to do these grand costumes for Halloween, but I never quite get there.

How did you find a custom-made peacock costume?

I had to look online for a while to find one that I really liked. I met all these women and men when we were doing the Comic-Con scene in Wish I Was Here and they actually made all their costumes themselves. If I had that talent to do that, then I absolutely would. It’s actually incredible how quickly and how efficiently they can make these elaborate costumes. But yeah, I just looked online for awhile and finally found a woman and called her up and sent her my measurements and stuff. I still have it. I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of it.

You have a really funny sex scene in your furry costume, too. Was that weird to film?

Hopefully, it’s as hilarious on the screen as it was in the room. It was an interesting way to make a scene that you think would be sexy just ridiculous and hilarious. Luckily, I had people like Josh Gad and Zach Braff in the room making me laugh, which made it really comfortable. You’re in this furry alien costume and he [Josh Gad] is in this space outfit and you kind of just have to go with it and trust the director and hope that magic happens. But it definitely goes down in the books as one of the oddest experiences that I’ve had.

What are your reflections on Twilight, now that the franchise has wrapped?

Never say never in this industry—but I don’t think that I’ll have an experience like than ever again. It was something really special that we couldn’t anticipate, and our fans really supported us and stood behind us. I loved being a part of it—it was fun and I learned a lot. It was like a rollercoaster ride because we went through things—not just myself but the rest of the cast as well—that we had never been through before. It created a bond between us that you don’t necessarily get on other sets.

Last question: Where do you think Alice Cullen would be today?

I think she would probably be in New York City, for sure, and I think she’d be a fashion designer. We got to have a lot of fun with the character because she did love fashion so much. I think she would definitely be at a fashion institute or in New York City designing.

Josh Gad’s Intimate Scene with Ashley was Dangerous

HQ_002.JPG (2500×1667)

Former “Book of Mormon” breakout Josh Gad has an “intimate scene” with “Twilight” babe Ashley Greene in their film “Wish I Was Here.” But shooting it was more dangerous than sexy.

“There is an intimate sex scene, where I wear an astronaut suit and Ashley wears a furry outfit,” Gad told us at the movie’s premiere on Monday.

“In real life I would say it’s very possible you might asphyxiate yourself if you do that. I wouldn’t recommend it .?.?. It turns out having sex in an astronaut suit is not as easy or as enticing as it sounds.”
