Ashley Greene was convinced her house was haunted until she realized the mysterious disturbances were caused by an earthquake.

The Twilight actress was among a number of Los Angeles residents who were woken in the early hours of Monday morning when a 3.2-magnitude tremor struck close to Beverly Hills around 3.30am.

Greene has now revealed she found a pile of broken glass and crockery behind her bed and she became convinced her property had been targeted by a ghost, until she remembered L.A.'s regular earthquakes.

She tells, "You know what's funny? The other day, I found broken plates and a cracked glass, behind my bed. I was like 'My house is haunted!' Then I realized we have had so many earthquakes in L.A. At least I hope that's right."
