Back in L.A. after spending time in the Big Apple
with Jared Followill
, Ashley Greene
stopped into Trousdale Lounge
with a group of friends after dining at Boa Steakhouse. Greene mostly hung out with a girlfriend, while the guys in her group acted like bodyguards. Though Ashley wasn't in full-on party mode – she wasn't dancing or being silly – she was laughing and chatting with her friends, an onlooker says.
