Although Kirsten Stewart is the star of Twilight, it looks as though fellow actress Ashley Greene may be the one to watch.

Sporting denim hot-pants and a vest, the brunette will no doubt attract an army of fans with her new photo shoot for the cover of a U.S magazine.

Speaking to Maxim, Ashley has admitted she dreams of becoming a Bond Girl.

"I want to hit up James Bond," Ashley confessed. "That would be awesome."


007: Ashley Greene explains why she would love to play a Bond girl, posing for U.S magazine Maxim in denim hot pants and gray best.

The 22-year-old actress, who plays the role of Alice Cullen, has current been learning Mixed Martial Arts to help with a fight scene in the third Twilight movie, Eclipse - and hopes the training will also help her land her dream role in 007's upcoming adventures.

"I figure if I'm really good at the MMA fighting and stunt work it will help," she said, admitting that her long term Bond dream also helps her stick at the grueling workouts.

"It's something to keep me going, because I hate working out," he admitted.

"So when I'm in the ring, I'm thinking about being in a Bond movie or jumping off buildings in a sexy action movie."

The actress, who plays vampire who can see the future based on decisions that people make, says her training also puts her in a great position to take on the stars of another famous movie series - that of Harry Potter.

"If we were in a fight, we would so kick their a...," Ashley joked.

Ashley admits landing a part in Twilight - her first major role - left her 'really nervous' and 'a wreck'.

But she claims she has thought about what vampire sex would be like, saying: "Take the best sex you've ever had in your life and multiply it by 100, and that's vampire sex."

Talking about the hype that the films generate, she said: "It's crazy, right? I think my dog is more famous than a lot of stars out there."

"I bet some people in Hollywood are like: "I can't get my picture in a mag, but Ashley's pooch [Marlow] does?" It's mind-boggling."

Ashley will return as Alice in New Moon, out on November 20, and she loves her part in the film series.

She said: "Oh, my God, I wanted this part so badly! I worked my butt off for it because I absolutely love Alice, my character. She's sweet, sexy, and a killer!"

"So when they told me I got it, I tried to play it all cool, you know, for about a minute."

Greene will be reuniting with her Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz in the upcoming movie Warrior.

She will reprise her role as Alice in the 2010 sequel Eclipse and will also be starring in an upcoming thriller film, Summer's Blood.
