Australias Abbie Cornish puts her indie darling status on temporary hiatus for a butt-kicking turn in Zack Snyders big-budget, swords-and-guns fantasia Sucker Punch

Abbie Cornish didnt have to do time in the art house to build a Hollywood career. Just look at her. Girls who have got that dont need to play knocked-up smack addicts Candy or button down for tricky little period pieces Bright Star. So let us celebrate the fact that she has finally put away serious things and decided to go a little Hollywood, playing the role of unjustly institutionalized, definitely very dangerous Sweet Pea in Sucker Punch. Nerd-core director Zack Snyders latest tells the trippy tale of five tough-as-nails chicks busting out of a psych ward—and forced the 28-year-old Australian actress to hit the armory for the first time in her life. “Im a vegetarian—Im not the type to want to go shoot a gun,” says Cornish. “Then I actually got to the range and totally fell in love with an M4. It was kind of amazing.” Somewhere in heaven, Charlton Heston nods sagely.
