Milla Jovovich biography

Milla Jovovich was born in 1975 in Kyiv, Ukraine, to Galina Loginova and Bogich Jovovich. Her mother was a Russian actress, and her father was a Yugoslavian doctor.

Her family moved from Russia to the United States when she was 5, settling in Sacramento, California.

As a child, Milla was ridiculed by her classmates for being from Russia.

She started acting in commercials when she was 9 years old. Milla began her professional modeling career when she was 11, and she was named one of Revlon's most unforgettable women a year later. 

Milla became the youngest model on Mademoiselle's cover when the photographer, Avedon, threatened to withdraw his services if they refused to use the photo. 

At 16, Milla Jovovich starred in Return to the Blue Lagoon, a role that gave Milla even more time in the spotlight. Not content to be just an actress and a model, Milla Jovovich produced a record album, The Divine Comedy, when Milla was 19. Since 1997 Milla has enjoyed a film career and displayed her musical talent on the soundtrack to The Fifth Element.
