"The Twilight Saga" might be coming to an end this year, but don't expect the Cullens to shy away from the Hollywood sun when it's over... and particularly not the lovely Ashley Greene, who's parlayed her performance as Edward's psychic sister into a booming career full of role that are a lot more "leading" than "supporting." And in the pages of August's Nylon magazine, the actress is opening up about what's next for her—from headlining the haunted house thriller "The Apparition" to ignoring any suggestions that she'll be post-"Twilight" typecast.
And about that last thing: no, she really doesn't see it happening.
You might just want to pick up a copy of the latest issue of GQ before they all disappear...and take "The Dark Knight Rises" star Joseph Gordon-Levitt's torso in a perfectly tailored dress shirt and waistcoat with them. The actor is on the cover this month, and looking extremely delicious in the magazine's fall fashion preview. I mean, dude looks so good in a three-piece suit that we almost don't want him to take it off...ALMOST.
And in a charming, down-to-earth interview, Joe (that's the nickname he likes, by the way—did you know? We didn't!) takes GQ's reporter on a tour through the L.A. of his youth, both literally and anecdotally.
Their first stop? The actor's high school, where he sheepishly admitted that he didn't attend his prom, partly because his early career on "3rd Rock from the Sun" left him with a bit of an oversized ego.

Forbes magazine recently released their list of the highest-paid celebrities under 30—or as I call it, a list of people whose bank accounts I'd like to pilfer.
There's a few Crush favorites (hi, "Twilight" leads!) among the music stars and actors who've made this year's countdown. No. 1 on the list right now? It's none other than songstress Taylor Swift, who Forbes estimates made $57 million over the last year from her albums, concerts and spokesperson gigs (such as CoverGirl). Even if I actually knew how to sing and play instruments and write songs like Taylor, I can't ever imagine ever receiving a paycheck of that magnitude.
Keep reading after the jump for the rest of Forbes' list:
Who's that girl on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine? It's Ashley Greene! The actress who captured our attention (and inspired many a brand-new haircut) with her turn as the chic psychic sister to Edward Cullen is sporting her natural long locks, some trendy pink denim and a floral crop-top as the magazine's August cover girl. And inside, Ashley opens up about personal priorities, professional ambitions and her next move now that "The Twilight Saga" is just about dunzo.
And in case you've been wondering, that move will not be in the direction of an altar—despite the fairly long-term romance between the actress and Broadway boyfriend Reeve Carney.
"I'm not one of those girls who sits at home thinking, 'By 25, I have to be married,'" Ashley explained. "Right now, I’m like, 'I’m 25, I need to book my next movie!'"
It's hard to say what we love most about Mila Kunis as Glamour magazine's August cover girl: the interview, where she talked about OkCupid-perusing wine parties and being happily free of her emaciated "Black Swan" body? The cute and colorful photo shoot showing off the star's gorgeous casual style? The amazing burgundy-colored Annie Hall hat? ...Okay, no contest: It's definitely the hat. But Mila's conversation with her interviewer on everything from online dating to having her girlfriends' backs to having a baby is a close second; it's impossible to read without wanting to be her friend.
For starters: Mila is pretty much the best internet dating wingwoman ever. And in addition to picking out hunky men for her lady friends, she also provides valuable editorial input on her pals' profiles.
"I’m really good at 'About Me,'" she said. "I feel like I could never write anything about myself, because that’s like a therapy session. But about your girlfriends? You just write what you love about your friends."
"Pretty Little Liars" starlets Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell all have something in common—besides starring on their hit ABC Family series, that is. They've all graced the cover of Seventeen magazine! This month, it's Shay's turn to bring the cute to the August issue, and even A would have to agree that the 25-year-old is all kinds of fresh and fearless in her all-purple ensemble. Inside, the actress opens up about her own time in high school and whether the four pretty little liars are really friends.
If Shay's portrayal of sometimes-troubled teen Emily Fields feels spot-on, it's probably because the actress can relate—she didn't have the easiest high school experience and wants to help other girls going through the tumultuous teens.
"When I was in high school, I wanted to be a counselor and I wanted to work with kids," Shay said. "I've been through the worst of high school. And I want to motivate people to live the best life that they can, because we're only here for one life."
Selena Gomez is an international pop singer with three hit records, a budding young actress who got her start on Disney's hit show "The Wizards of Waverly Place" and now she's trying her hand at an indie drama called "Spring Breakers"—certainly the makings of Hollywood's latest It Girl. But Selena wasn't always a successful starlet.
In the July issue of Elle magazine, she recalls a time when money was tight and her family was struggling.
"I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we'd run out of gas money," she said. "[Still my mother] saved up to take me to concerts. She took me to museums, aquariums, to teach me about the world, about what's real."
It's certainly no surprise that fame changes one's life. When once you could walk into Starbucks to grab your daily cup of coffee you now need five security guards to block you from the sea of awaiting paparazzi. Such is the case for Kristen Stewart.
The "Snow White and the Huntsman" star was not prepared for the world's invasion into her private life. In fact, she didn't realize the full extent of it until she did a little online research.
"You can Google my name and one of the first things that comes up is images of me sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and my dog," she revealed to Vanity Fair, recalling the moment she realized her life changed. "It was [taken] the day the movie came out. I was no one. I was a kid. I had just turned 18. In [the tabloids] the next day it was like I was a delinquent slimy idiot, whereas I'm kind of a weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot. Big deal. But that changed my daily life instantly. I didn't go out in my underwear anymore."
If you thought just because "The Twilight Saga" was ending that Kristen Stewart's Hollywood reign was over, think again. With three highly anticipated films out this year—the final "Breaking Dawn" installment, the film adaptation of "On the Road" and the edgy retelling of the fairy tale "Snow White and the Huntsman"—not to mention her latest film "Cali" potentially shooting this summer, the actress is merely getting started.
And if you think you know everything about the actress who plays beloved Bella Swan, her latest conversation with Interview, may reveal a few things fans didn't know. Here are five things we learned from her Q&A with the magazine.
What's going on with Kristen Stewart in the upcoming issue of Elle magazine? Well, to quote our favorite international man of mystery: She's a MAN, baby! The "Snow White and the Huntsman" star donned a suit, some suspenders and a seriously suave expression to play a dashing gentleman for her photo shoot with Tom Munro, which depicts the actress seducing... herself, dressed as a woman, thanks to some seriously ambitious photoshoppery. Which is quite an apt pose for a gal who just finished a film about the devastating effects of narcissism! And inside, Kristen antes up for an interview about her irritatingly un-difficult life, her drive to act and, of course, the rumors surrounding her romance with one Robert Pattinson.
It's no secret that KStew has been dating her "Twilight" co-star for awhile now, but time hasn't had any effect on the notoriously close-mouthed actress' willingness to dish about her love life. And when it comes to the latest hot topic, a gold ring that's purported to be from Rob, she'd only say, "Everyone wants to know. Everyone knows already—it’s ridiculous.”
