doesn't want to star in the next box office hit. Like any good actress, she actually wants to improve her acting skills. Abbie is dating Reese Witherspoon's ex Ryan Phillippe.
She said: "I never take a film that is going to be a walk in the park, because I don't see the point in that. It's important to know what path you want to take as an artist. I want to be challenged."
Although the Australian beauty says she has always wanted to be an actress, she also had aspirations in many other areas of her life when she was growing up. She told Britain's Culture
magazine: "I never felt like I just want to be an actor, and that's it. I always wanted to work with animals. I want to make music, to paint, to take photos, to travel. That's a lot, right? Sometimes I wonder how I'm going to get it all done."
