Ashley Greene admits playing Lisa Kristal in forthcoming movie 'CBGB' is ''nerve-racking'' because she is portraying a living person.
Ashley Greene says starring in 'CBGB' is ''nerve-wracking''.
The 25-year-old actress portrays Lisa Kristal - the daughter of Hilly Kristal, the owner of the influential New York nightspot - in the forthcoming movie and admits it is scary to be playing a real life person.
She said: ''It's a little nerve-racking to play someone who existed, who's a real person that's still alive.
''You're like, 'Oh, they can yell at me if I do a bad job!' But it's going to be cool to get to talk to her about it and learn about personal experiences from her.''
Although she is nervous about the role, Ashley thinks the movie will be a ''fun adventure'' and she is looking forward to speaking with Lisa as part of her research.
She told E! Online: ''I get to Skype with [Lisa Kristal] on Sunday!. I'm really excited about that...She's kind of amazing.
''It's going to be a fun adventure for me because I haven't really played someone who is that tough yet.
''I want to make sure I get it right without making her she's not a bitch! She's just very...she's a New Yorker. They have a specific personality and air about them. They're survivors.''
