Abbie Cornish

There are so many different ways to develop a character – physically, mentally, spiritually and all of that – but the research was really beautiful. I love the process of finding characters because, in the beginning, it’s really unknown, and then, by the end of it, all of a sudden, you’re walking and talking like that character.

I love it when I meet a woman who was poor as a child and maybe had an abusive family, and broke out and found the one and they’re married with a very healthy home and children, and they’ve let go of regret and their past and decided to embrace their journey and what that stands for.

I’m a vegetarian and very much active in regards to how I feel about animal rights and protecting animals and giving animals a voice. But at the same time, I appreciate and respect other people’s decisions to eat meat. The only thing that I hope is that people are educated, that they’re aware, that they’re living a conscious lifestyle.
