Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Abbie Cornish's fearless performance as a free-spirited teenager in the indie feature "Somersault" (2004) won the Australian actress her first favor with international critics, but unfortunately it was accusations of her alleged involvement in the 2006 divorce of actors Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon that was her ticket to overnight fame. Despite the publicity onslaught surrounding the high profile Hollywood break-up, Cornish soldiered on with well-received notices in "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" (2007) and Jane Campion's "Bright Star" (2009), where her innate talent, already recognized by her native homeland, elevated her above the gossip and established her as a significant talent on the rise.
