Abbie Cornish Does GQ

Australian Abbie Cornish graces the April issue of GQ hitting stands March 22. She’s promoting the new Zack Snyder epic sword and guns fantasy movie Sucker Punch which may or may not have turned people off after test screenings. From GQ:

Girls who have got that don’t 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 Snyder’s 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. “I’m a vegetarian—I’m 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.

I want to like Sucker Punch but Zack Snyder has a habit of using great visuals and slacking on the story and pacing. 300 was great, visually, but sucked as a movie. Watchmen was alright but played up to being an epic movie when it could have been shorter. At least in Sucker Punch everyone can distract themselves with hot chicks in skimpy clothes shooting stuff. That’s pretty much all I ask for from any movie.
