Abbie Cornish Refuses films That Don't Challenge Her

Abbie Cornish refuses to star in films that don't challenge her.

The 'Bright Star' actress doesn't want to take on roles just because she knows they will be a box office hit or easy to make as she wants to improve on her acting skills.

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 - who is dating Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Phillippe - 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.

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.

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."
