Brief Bio: Calling Milla Jovovich multitalented would be a crude understatement; modeling, acting, singing, songwriting, and playing guitar are the more prominent of her talents. As a child, she was coached by her actress mother, Galina Jovovich, but her big break came when she was noticed by photographer Richard Avedon at age 11. By 12, she had her first professional model contract made, and found herself on the cover of The Face, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and dozens of other maganizes. Around the same time, she took a role in the 1988 film Two Moon Junction. Her acting career rose to match her career as a supermodel when she starred in the Resident Evil movie franchise, making her one of the few models with a strong, steady presence in cinema. Her 1994 studio album The Divine Comedy spread her renown to the music industry, and her band Plastic Has Memory was featured on Hollywood Goes Wild. Milla Jovovich is truly one of the most talented women to don the spotlight.
