Australian actress Abbie Cornish was a no-show at the New York premiere of her new film CANDY, after she was linked to the break-up of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. Cornish, 24, has venomously denied rumours she had an affair with the CRASH heart-throb, 32, on the set of STOP LOSS in Texas earlier this year (06). At the screening at the city's TriBeCa Grand on Tuesday (07NOV06), Cornish failed to join co-stars Heath Ledger and Claire Danes and director Ron Howard. Witherspoon and Phillippe announced their split last week (30OCT06) after seven years of marriage.
