Milica Bogdanovna Jovovich (born December 17, 1975 in Kyiv, Ukraine) is an American actress and musician of Russian-Serbian-Ukrainian descent.note  She's best known for her Action Girl roles.

In the midst of her modeling career, Milla Jovovich (pronounced mee-luh yo-vo-vitch) made waves in Hollywood with her roles as Michelle in Dazed and Confused and Leeloo in The Fifth Element. Today she is best known for playing Alice in the Resident Evil movies, to the extent that she's the most recognizable character from the franchise (despite not appearing in any of the games).

Like Helena Bonham-Carter, she tends to collaborate a lot with her film director significant others, former husband Luc Besson and current husband Paul W.S. Anderson (though HBC has Milla beat by about two movies). She and Anderson have two children, daughter Ever Gabo and son Dashiel Edan.


She maintains her modeling and fashion designing career, and even had her own clothing line, Jovovich-Hawk, but it went under in 2008. She's also a singer, and although her last official album was released 17 years ago, she continues to release demos, sing folk songs, and contribute to movie soundtracks. However, an as-yet untitled EP is forthcoming according to Milla herself.
