New Couple Alert: Josh Hartnett And Abbie Cornish?


Actor now famous for dating actresses may be dating another actress.

Josh Hartnett, whom we do not recall seeing in a movie since Sin City, is now dating Abbie Cornish, the Australian import most famous for allegedly breaking up Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe's marriage. A source tells The New York Post's Page Six that Josh and Abbie showed up at Channing Tatum's 30th birthday party last weekend, "after midnight ... they definitely looked like a couple."

Oh, Josh has supposedly been in a number of movies lately. Odd. When he's not going around looking eerily like a younger Tommy Lee Jones (seriously, how have they not made a movie together yet?), most of his recent buzz has come from being linked with every famous, single woman in America and one in Spain, including Rihanna, Penelope Cruz, Mischa Barton, Sienna Miller, Kirsten Dunst and model Sophia Lie. Jebus. That's like a Kate Hudson level of dating famous people. Who Should Kate Hudson Date Next?

Abbie, for her part, has mostly been in Ryan Phillippe's shadow, gossip-wise, since they started dating in 2007. But they broke up last month and now she's free, free to date whomever she likes. (We suggested Alexander Skarsgard. But the lady has a mind of her own.) How To Avoid An Office Affair

Josh, however, seems intent on denying Page Six's rumor-mongering. He and Sophia Lie, who is very pretty but whom we have never heard of, spent part of today wandering around Brooklyn to demonstrate that they are dating. If that's all it takes to be dating, well, there are a lot of 30-something women in Park Slope involved in scandalous affairs with toddlers. That food co-op, it's a hotbed of sin.
