For The Fifth Element (1997), the production decided to dye Jovovich's hair from its natural brown color to her character's signature orange color. However, due to the fact that her hair had to be redyed regularly to maintain the bright color, Milla's hair quickly became too damaged and broken to withstand the dye. Most of Milla's hair fell out and eventually a wig was created to match the color and style of Leeloo's hair, and was used for the remainder of the production.
She owns a 5559-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills that she purchased in 1998 for $775,000. A 4026-square-foot house in Beverly Hills that she paid $2,223,000 for in 2004. And a 3010-square-foot house in the Doral Isles Saint-Croix development in Doral, Florida (just outside Miami) that she purchased in 2005 for $910,000 (2009).
