Milla Jovovich was said to be designer Miuccia Prada’s muse in 2002; a 2003 article claimed she was Gianni Versace’s favourite supermodel.
In 2004, Jovovich topped Forbes magazine’s Richest Supermodels of the World list, earning a reported $10.5 million, and in 2006, Jovovich was picked up by Mango, a Spanish clothing line, as their new spokesmodel and is featured in their advertising campaigns; she can also be seen in adverts for Etro. She has said that Modeling was never a priority and that the money she earns enables her to be selective about the creative decisions [she] make[s].
Durant les années 2000-2010, elle est surtout connue pour incarner Alice, l’héroïne de la saga cinématographique Resident Evil qui s’inspire partiellement des jeux vidéo éponymes de Capcom. Quatre des six volets sont mis en scène par son troisième mari, le réalisateur américain Paul W. S. Anderson.
Whether by accident or design, Jovovich has come to epitomise a kind of ludicrously far-fetched post-feminist ideal. Here is a working mother who looks like a supermodel, fights like a ninja and swears like a Geordie builder. But there’s an impatient streak there, a nervous energy in her rushed speech and lightly shaking hands that may explain her erratic career trajectory. Because over the past two decades Jovovich has gone from modelling and acting to song-writing, clothes-designing (despite its critical success, her fashion label, Jovovich-Hawk, created with her fellow model Carmen Hawk, folded in 2008) – and back again.
