Biography

Having become a highly successful model at the young age of 11, actress Milla Jovovich transitioned to the big screen, where she managed to parlay that success into other side careers, including musician and fashion designer. After gracing the covers of such high-profile fashion magazines as <i>Vogue</i> and <i>Mademoiselle</i>, Jovovich landed her first major feature playing the lead in "Return to the Blue Lagoon" (1991), which earned its share of controversy for displaying the 15-year-old nude onscreen. She had a significant co-starring turn in the acclaimed "Chaplin" (1992) before having her screen time drastically cut to a bare minimum for "Dazed and Confused (1993), even though the actress was prominently featured in the movie's advertising. Following a brief hiatus from filmmaking to focus on creating music, an adult Jovovich returned to features and reimaged herself as an action heroine with her turn in Luc Besson's sci-fi action flick, "The Fifth Element" (1997). But it was her turn as the amnesiac Alice in "Resident Evil" (2002) that helped her win a cult following among sci-fi horror aficionados. Though the subsequent sequels were widely panned by critics, Jovovich nonetheless enjoyed a newfound status as a female action star on par with the likes of Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver.
