Ryan Phillippe is finally moving on in his own love life. With Abbie Cornish.
After months of everyone already guessing they were together, they finally showed up together at the 2008 Australian in Film Breakthrough Awards – their first major event as a couple.
"They were adorable," says a guest. "He had his arm around her and they were cozy and comfortable."
When Cornish – who was being honored with a Breakthrough Award – was introduced, Phillippe rubbed her back while she leaned against his shoulder. Throughout the evening, they held hands.
Phillippe also let Cornish enjoy her moment in the spotlight, waiting patiently as she worked the room and posed for photos. Once she was at his side once again, they continued to share laughs with pals.
The secret to Cornish's appeal? "We needed a girl who could knock back and drink the guys under the table, change a blown tire, whatever she needs to do," their Stop-Loss director, Kimberly Pierce, says. "And she has that. She's that kind of girl."
Phillippe and Cornish left the party just before 10 p.m., heading to Hennessy's weekly jazz night at Teddy's.
I'm so glad he is finally moved on from dwelling over Reese. I'm sure he still loves her but she has moved on and he needed to badle. Hopefully this girl is the right one for him.
