'Twilight"s certainly given us an advantage in that we're able to walk into rooms that we couldn't before. There's a lot of things coming up on the horizon."

Ashley has a role in Butter. the upcoming ensemble film from the Weinstein Company that also stars Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman, Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry.
