Milla Jovovich discusses her latest role in “Stone”

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Milla Jovovich tells us she has Edward Norton to thank for the fact she wound up playing the femme lead in the big-screen “Stone” opposite him and Robert DeNiro — though she didn’t find that out until well after the film was made.

Speaking of director John Curran, she relates with a laugh, “I guess I heard once we all started doing press together that John wasn’t really convinced I was right for it. Edward really went to bat for me. I don’t think John would have talked to me,” adds the Kiev-born star, whose recently-released “Resident Evil: Afterlife” is projected to take in $200 million in worldwide box office grosses.

According to Milla, Norton pushed Curran to take a look at her in Spike Lee’s 1998 Denzel Washington starrer, “He Got Game.” “He loved that movie, loved me in that movie, and said, ‘You’ve got to see Milla.’

“Edward and I have been sort of, not specifically trying to find something to work on together — but we’ve almost done a couple of things that didn’t come together, so there was this awareness,” she adds.
