Abbie Cornish Brings Ryan Phillippe Home for the Holidays

Ryan Phillippe and girlfriend Abbie Cornish spent Thanksgiving in Delaware with his family, but the pair will be doing Christmas Down Under with hers.

Aussie actress Cornish, 26, has been in her home country since last Sunday. Phillippe, 34, flew into Sydney Airport yesterday where Abbie was waiting for him.

The happy couple are expected to appear at a Calvin Klein event Tuesday evening.

OK! notes that this is the first time Phillippe has flown to Australia to be with his girlfriend. The pair initially met on the set of the film Stop-Loss, while Ryan was still married to Reese Witherspoon.

Their alleged affair busted up the seven-year marriage in 2006, causing Witherspoon and Phillippe to separate. Their divorce was finalized a year later.

Ryan and Abbie will next appear together on-screen in the raucous epic Last Battle Dreamer.

Due out in 2009, and directed and written by Menno Meyjes, Last Battle Dreamer takes place in 9th century England.  Meyjes, who wrote screenplays for both 1998’s The Siege and The Color Purple from 1985, will use the Viking invasions of Britain as a backdrop for a timeless love story.

So look for Ryan to be wielding a battle ax while sweeping Abbie off her feet.

Following their Australian yuletide, Ryan and Abbie are expected to return to the States and spend time with his children Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5.
