Ashley Greene has revealed how filming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has renewed her interest in martial arts.
The 22-year-old actress, who plays vampire Alice Cullen, is involved in a series of fight scenes in the movie, which is due out next summer.
In an interview with OK!, Greene said she was first introduced to martial arts as a child and believed it was a good form of self-defence.
"I started doing martial arts when I was really young and I ended up sparring with boys instead of girls because I was that into it and I didn't want to beat up the girls," she said.
“It's a fun thing and I've always been really athletic."
Greene added: “I'm definitely going to get more involved in it. When we were filming Eclipse we had fight training for about six weeks, so that kind of re-sparked that bug.
“I had a personal trainer on top of that and they had us do mixed martial arts fighting as well."
Greene can currently be seen in the second installment of the vampire saga, New Moon.
