Abbie Cornish is featured in the new issue of Blind Magazine with drop dead gorgeous new editorial, which can now be found in our gallery.
I’ve also added scans of her appearances in the February 12 issue of Italian Vanity Fair and the February issue of Spanish DT magazine.
It took a role in RoboCop for Abbie Cornish to finally gain her brother’s respect.
It you’re familiar with the work of actress Abbie Cornish, especially in period dramas such as The Golden Age (2007), Bright Star (2009) and W.E. (2011), you might be surprised to hear the indie darling is starring in a reboot of ’80s action movie RoboCop. But the 31-year-old Aussie makes no apologies.
”I grew up with three brothers, so when I was a kid, we watched the VHS over and over,” Cornish explains excitedly as she sits in a Los Angeles hotel room during a press day for the blockbuster. ”It’s a film that I felt was nostalgic for me, especially because I haven’t really done a film like this before. The closest I got was Sucker Punch [the 2011 action fantasy film directed by 300 helmer Zack Snyder], but I just really loved the original RoboCop and I thought this was such a wonderful recipe for a great remake.”
Cornish grew up on a farm in Lochnivar, in the NSW Hunter Valley, and is a combination of Hollywood chic – today wearing a dangerously low-cut designer black jumpsuit and a layered chain necklace that could weigh down RoboCop himself – and a free-spirited tomboy who loves to hike, ride motorbikes and live with four cats, a dog and a parakeet in her Hollywood home. She proudly admits her role in RoboCop also finally earned her some respect from her brothers.
Abbie Cornish attended the World Premiere of RoboCop at the BFI IMAX on February 5, 2014 in London, England. She wore an Elie Saab signature embellished tangerine 3/4 length sleeve, open-back gown styled Sheikh vegan shoes, Slight Jewelry earrings, ring and a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch. I think she looked like Old Hollywood vs. futuristic perfection!
A handful of HQs have been loaded up in the gallery for your viewing pleasure.

She usually sleeps with her phone on silent. But six months ago, Abbie Cornish was awakened by her aggressively vibrating phone. “I thought, ‘Why is my phone blowing up?’’’ she says. “I got so worried.” More worried were her mom and her friends because someone had started a rumor that she’d died. “It’s a bit weird, isn’t it?” she says. Her death hoax died down within hours, but for the doubters: the Australian actress, 31, is alive and well and ordering a mint tea at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont.
She’s barely recognizable, what with the black beanie she has pulled down over her blond hair and the little dog in her arms — that’s Soleil, an 8-month-old mutt she found in the south of France and brought home to join her four rescue cats and a parakeet. But Abbie looks cool: She’s in a black lace Tory Burch top, metallic red Rich & Skinny jeans (the same ones her character wore in “Seven Psychopaths”) and black peep-toe Vivienne Westwood pumps. She also has a cute pair of brown plastic sunglasses tucked into her shirt — vintage, handmade, from France. “I own about a hundred pairs of sunglasses,” she says, as she pets Soleil. “Sunglasses are definitely my obsession. I think there’s lots of history in them.”

“Awesome!” exclaims blonde, honey-eyed actress Abbie Cornish, her enthusiasm and Aussie accent cutting through the low murmur carpeting the patio at the Chateau Marmont. The kudo is a callout to the 31-year-old’s forthcoming science-fiction actioner, RoboCop, a new rendition of the 1987 dystopian megahit that comes at the end of a long list of credits for which Cornish is asked to give an immediate one-word response to each title.
Somersault, Cornish’s lead debut from 2004, for which she won a catalog of awards, including the Australian Film Institute’s Best Actress in a Leading Role and the Film Critics Circle of Australia award for Best Actress, yields a response of “Cate,” a kiss to the film’s writer-director, Cate Shortland. Candy, dealing with the unsweetened world of addiction, which garnered the starlet a second Film Critics Circle of Australia award for Best Actress, produces her co-star’s name, “Heath” [Ledger]; likewise, with A Good Year, comes “Russell” [Crowe]. Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Cornish’s first petticoat-period flick featuring gorgeous gowns and physical conscription, signals, unsurprisingly, “costumes,” while Stop-Loss, in which she co-starred opposite former beau Ryan Phillippe, elicits “grit.” Bright Star, which lyrically addresses the relationship between the great romantic poet John Keats and his muse and lover, Fanny Brawne, and for which Cornish received major Oscar buzz, is met with a Shakespearean “death.” The girl power-driven Sucker Punch kicks off kinetic “imagery”; last month’s TV series Klondike calls up “Earth”; and the forthcoming film Solace provokes “FBI.”
