Abbie Cornish is so five minutes from now

Posted on

WHAT SHE’S DONE:
The 23-year-old, a former model and Aussie TV star, had a memorable turn as the troubled teen lead in the indie drama Somersault.

HOW SHE’S DOING IT:
With raw, uninhibited performances that have drawn comparisons to a young Nicole Kidman.

WHEN SHE’LL BREAK BIG:
In October — when Cornish stars opposite Heath Ledger in the heroin drama Candy. Then in November, she’ll charm the pantalon off Russell Crowe in Ridley Scott’s romance A Good Year, set in Provence.

WHY YOU SHOULD ROOT FOR HER:
This farm girl from New South Wales moonlights on the mic as a hip-hop artist and has played shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
