Ashley Greene shares her shocking struggles with body image (PHOTO)

Ashley Greene's attitude about her appearance is an inspiration

Hey, haters, Ashley Greene DGAF what you think of her body because she's heard it all before and she's over it.

The Twilight star told Health magazine that she has been called too fat, too skinny, even too muscular — but at this point, she just lets it roll off her well-toned back.

"Yeah, there's always going to be pressure [in Hollywood]," she told the mag. "Anyone who doesn't feel pressure is a really good liar. You're always going to be too skinny or too fat or too muscular, and I've gotten every single one of those.

"Yeah, and listen, everyone has a different perception of what they think perfect is, and you're never gonna be able to please everyone," she continued. "It's so tough, but once you come to terms with that, it's a little easier to deal with."

And, of course, with age comes wisdom.

"When I started and got Twilight, I think I was 20, and I was more impressionable. Now I'm 28, and if people are unhappy with the way I look, then they can be unhappy," she said.

"But I feel strong and healthy and happy. Some people, like Gisele Bündchen, have crazy genes, and that's just what she looks like. But most of us are not 5'11" and don't look like that naturally."

That doesn't mean that she hasn't tried some crazy ways to drop the lbs, though — but she quickly realized crash diets just don't work with her lifestyle.

"I lasted a day on that cayenne pepper diet. It gave me a headache and I was really grumpy," she confessed. "It was like, 'This cannot be healthy.' I've done juicing and then quickly realized that I couldn't just do juices if I was gonna continue to work out the way I do. Right now, I feel the strongest I've ever been."
