Milla Jovovich at the Hollywood Awards Gala
HollywoodNews.com: Milla Jovovich has successfully established herself as a highly regarded, international model and actress. Jovovich, (pronounced “mee-luh” “yo-vo-vitch”) has transitioned effortlessly to a full time actress, starring in over two dozen films.
Star of the “Resident Evil” franchise, Jovovich reprised her role as “Alice” in the fourth installment of the film for Sony Screen Gems, which earned the #1 slot in the box office on opening weekend. This month, Jovovich will star alongside Academy Award winner Robert DeNiro and Academy Award nominee Edward Norton in “Stone.” In the film, Jovovich portrays the wife of a convicted arsonist (Edward Norton) who is deployed in a psychological game of cat-and-mouse with his parole officer (Robert De Niro). The Overture film is directed by John Curran.
Jovovich recently wrapped three independent films, including “Faces in the Crowd,” a psychological thriller centering on a woman (Jovovich) who barely survives an attack by a serial killer and wakes up in hospital with a head injury that leaves her “face-blind” (prosopagnosia). In “Dirty Girl,” which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival, Jovovich stars alongside William H. Macy and Juno Temple in a comedic story about the search for identity and the redemptive power of unexpected friendship. Most recently, Jovovich wrapped the lead role in “Bringing Up Bobby,” the directorial debut of actress Famke Janssen. “Bringing Up Bobby” is the story of a European con-artist (Jovovich) and her son Bobby, who find themselves in Oklahoma in an effort to escape her past and build a better future.
Jovovich is currently shooting the 3-D remake of “The Three Musketeers”, in Germany, reteaming with director Paul W.S. Anderson. Jovovich will portray Milady de Winter alongside a cast which also includes Christoph Waltz, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans and Mads Mikkelson. Filming begins in September in Europe.
Milla is an ambassador for amfAR (The Foundation for AIDS Research) and also supports several other charities, including OCRF (Ovarian Cancer Research Fund), The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, Wildlands Project, and UNESCO World Heritage Centre.
