Ashley Greene said that she had a big crush on "Twilight" costar Jackson Rathbone.
Greene recalled thinking he was "super cute and a Southern gentleman" when they first met.
In her podcast, the actress said that her crush didn't last the entire duration of the franchise.
"I had a big old crush on Jackson Rathbone while we were filming," Greene said in the latest episode of her and Melanie Howe's podcast, "The Twilight Effect" with Kast Media.
Greene and Rathbone starred as on-screen love interests Alice Cullen and Jasper Hale, respectively, in all five installments released between 2008 and 2012: "Twilight," "New Moon," "Eclipse," "Breaking Dawn: Part 1," and "Breaking Dawn: Part 2."
When asked by Howe if her attraction to her costar was immediate, Greene said: "I mean, kinda."
"Our first encounter, I was like, 'This dude's super cute and a Southern gentleman.' I was like, 'Oh, OK, I'm into it,'" she said. "He sings, he taught me how to swing dance. And he's supposed to be my lifetime love on-screen and I was like, 'This is gonna be easy.'"
Greene said that she felt as though Rathbone "had to have known about her romantic feelings, but "if he did know, he just wasn't into me."
"I also hadn't developed the skill set of creating on-screen chemistry and separating that," she said, saying that it was "a harmless crush."
The actress said that her feelings for Rathbone didn't last the entire duration of the franchise because "at a certain point, you can only crush so hard until your dreams are just broken."
Greene also said that she dated other people during those five years spent making the "Twilight" movies.
"I wasn't just like, chilling, hopelessly waiting for him," she said.
During the episode, Lutz revealed that he had a crush on Greene, but they remained platonic and she quickly became part of his friend group.
Lutz also said that he was shocked that he and Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale) never dated in real life while portraying immortal love interests in the vampire franchise.
"I really fell in love with her as a human being in 'Breaking Dawn' because we just had so much time to talk and she's really, really special, has such a kind heart," he said.
"I remember I felt so connected to her," Lutz added. "And I'm actually kind of surprised her and I didn't date throughout all this."
In a recent interview with Insider, Greene said that it was "only natural" for the cast members to develop crushes on each other.
"Being around each other solely four or five years of our life, it's kind of bound to happen and obviously some of them turned into relationships and some of them didn't," she said.
