Ashley Greene says she is just as tough as her male 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' co-stars.

The 23-year-old star - who plays Alice Cullen in the vampire films - insists the girls on set did the same amount of training for the fight scenes as the boys.

Speaking at the press conference for the new movie in London yesterday (01.07.10), she told BANG Showbiz: "We did the same thing as the boys - lots of training, lots of circuits training, lots of competitions. We played really fun competitions when we'd try and see who could do the circuit in the least amount of time.

"It's such a hard life we have."

Rather than be dismayed at the muscle-busting training, Ashley enjoyed the gruelling workout regime because it meant she didn't have to count calories away from the set.

She added: "It was actually fun and kept us in shape, but it was really cool to get to learn different choreography and then at that point we could eat whatever we wanted - because we were working out so much."

Ashley was among the stars who walked the red carpet at the London premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' last night (01.07.10).

She was joined at the event by Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and BooBoo Stewart.
