Milla Jovovich was born in Kiev, Ukraine, on December 17, 1975. Her mother, Gallina Loginova was a famous Russian actress. So Milla spent her early childhood between London, where her father Bogdanovitch Jovovich was studying, and Russia, where her mother lived. When she was 5 years old the the family moved to California, and began adapting to the American way of life.

She began acting at the age of 9, and modeling at 11. Her first cover was for the October 1987 edition of Italian magazine Lei. Then a six-page fashion spread by Herb Ritts for a French fashion magazine quickly moved Jovovich, the young and barely-trained model, to the top ranks.

In that first year, she completed 15 fashion covers and countless other shoots, still managing the time for her studies (including the training necessary for runway work) as well as maintaining her teenage social life. She took the modeling world by storm and impressed critics with her uncanny ability to carry herself at such a young age.

She released her first movie in 1988, entitled Two Moon Junction, followed by The Night Train to Kathmandu. She displayed maturity and talent beyond her years, and continued her acting career with the release of Return to Blue Lagoon in 1991, and Kuffs and Chaplin in 1992.

After filming Dazed and Confused in 1993, her career was in full swing. She released her first album at the age of 18, entitled The Divine Comedy. Unlike most actresses and models that try their hand at singing careers, Jovovich's album was well-received.

Next on her list was the the Fifth Element, the sci-fi movie starring Bruce Willis that takes place in the future. In this role, Milla Jovovich was appropriately cast as the perfect being. Playing Leeloo, wearing little more than artfully-placed ace bandages designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier. Jovovich's modeling experience came in handy - the character was engineered, and required Milla Jovovich to use little facial expressions, and portray an innocent and distant look.

One of Milla's most famous outfits was the dress she wore at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 - possibly the only outfit more revealing than the "ACE-bandage" costume she wore in The Fifth Element.

In the spring of '98, she starred in Spike Lee's He Got Game with Denzel Washington. Here she played a prostitute who suffers from a severe beating, but Jovovich gets very little on-screen time.

She married The Fifth Element director Luc Besson on the 14th December 1997, but they divorced 2 years later. It was about the same time she played the leading role in another of his films, The Messenger: The story of Joan of Arc.

In 1999, Milla Jovovich starred in the horror film The Boat House. Milla plays a teenager who has seen some evil creature and loses her mind, and is sent to a mental hospital from which she later escapes. Her character is described as a beautiful, yet fragile girl.

The following year, Jovovich appeared in Wim Wenders' futuristic The Million Dollar Hotel as a mental patient in the titular establishment. Then following Zoolander, and You Stupid Man, she starred in Resident Evil, the video game turned movie, in 2002. It was a huge success, and in 2004, she also starred in Resident Evil: Apocalypse.

Milla Jovovich is still sought out by the fashion industry for her incredible beauty, and captivating uniqueness. However she's always maintained that modeling doesn't really thrill her; rather, she's in it for the money. Milla's modeling pays extremely well and thus grants her the freedom to only do the movies she wants to or to take time off from modeling & acting to work on her music.
