In 2001, Abbie landed the role of Reggie McDowell, a character on the Australian tv show "Outriders". In 2004, Cornish appeared in the award-winning short film Everything Goes with Hugo Weaving. She received the Australian Film Institute Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actress at the FCCA and IF Awards and Best Breakthrough Performance at the 2005 Miami International Film Festival for her role in 2004's Somersault, the film which raised her to international prominence. Cornish received widespread critical acclaim for her role in 2006's Candy, which she starred in opposite Heath Ledger. She has also starred in A Good Year, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Kimberly Peirce's latest movie, Stop-Loss. She narrated her film Sucker Punch on the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con International. In 2007, Cornish began dating fellow actor Ryan Phillippe, a relationship that some media sources allege began on the set of the movie Stop-Loss while Phillippe was still married to actress Reese Witherspoon. Phillippe and Cornish attended the Calvin Klein 40th Anniversary party on Cockatoo Island in Sydney on the 16 December 2008. Phillippe also spent some of the 2008 Christmas break in Australia with Cornish and her family. On February 21, 2010, Cornish's publicist announced that Cornish and Phillippe had ended their relationship. Cornish, who has been a vegetarian since she was 13, in 2008 was named Australia's sexiest vegetarian.
