Though she was spotted getting close to Entourage
leading man Adrian Grenier in Santa Barbara last weekend, Twilight
star Ashley Greene insists they've only really connected over the environment.
"I have only met him once. But he's very smart. We actually started talking about environmental stuff. He's a very go-green guy," Greene told PEOPLE at the 2009 NBA Championship Victory Celebration hosted by the L.A. Lakers on June 18. "I think he's a really sweet guy."
The two first met last Friday
at Oakley’s "Learn to Ride" surf weekend in Santa Barbara, Calif. By Saturday night, Grenier, 32, and Greene, 22, "were flirting and dancing close all night long," says a source who spotted them at a barbecue at El Capitan Ranch. "[They] got super cozy all weekend."
When told that she looked cute and cuddly with Grenier, Greene laughed and would only say, "God, that's what I keep hearing!"
Greene just finished filming the latest installment of the Twilight
saga New Moon
and is on a break before the cast reunites to start production on the next movie, Eclipse
. "I feel like I'm never in L.A., so ... I'm just kind of hanging out, getting my life together," Greene says, adding that she is enjoying
filming the sequels even more.
"I'm a little more comfortable in my skin this go-around," she says. "The second go-around is nice because I get to enjoy it more and breathe it in."
