The Resident Evil star and her friends "broke the law all the time" by refusing to pay fares on buses, and Jovovich, who is married to director Paul W. S. Anderson, admits police became involved when her behaviour took a turn for the worse.
She tells Britain's Empire magazine, "I thought I was a bad girl when I was a kid. We broke the law all the time, getting onto buses without paying. We'd find wallets and use the credit cards on the weekends, then get arrested for it. I'm so stupid we actually got caught. Also, writing on walls - my name was Rile."
Jovovich also reveals she still likes to rebel now she is a famous star, adding, "My gay husband and I - not Paul, but I have a gay husband on top of my husband - managed to steal a whole Lanesborough Hotel tea set.
"We got four cups and saucers, a sugar pot, a pot for cream and the only thing we didn't get was the teapot. This was all on different trips. But because we stole it, it's all broken."
