“The Fifth Element” is one of the most popular films of the 1990s. Bruce Willis was already a star back then, while Milla Jovovich was still an unknown actress. With the role of Leeloo, the then 22-year-old made a name for herself worldwide.

Although the action flick was the most expensive European film of all time, it was also one of the most successful of its time. The action strip grossed a total of 263 million US dollars (the equivalent of around 240 million euros) and earned the model from Kyiv numerous nominations. Milla Jovovich didn’t win a prize for her role, but Hollywood took notice of her.

Since then, the 46-year-old has acted in more than 50 films. Her biggest role: Alice in “Resident Evil”. The actress took on the lead role in the “Resident Evil” series six times, for the last time in 2016.

By the way, on the set of the first part, Milla Jovovich fell in love with the director of the “Resident Evil” saga. The actress has been married to Paul WS Anderson for more than ten years. The couple have three daughters together.

Above all, the actress wants to convey stamina to them. “For example, when I do a jigsaw puzzle with my daughters, I make it a point to finish it. Focus is an important word in our family,” told Milla Jovovich in an interview with t-online.

Two years earlier she had made public that she had a miscarriage that she is still suffering from today. A few months later, the actress announced that she is pregnant again. Their third child was born in February 2020. Daughter Osian celebrated her second birthday a few weeks ago.
