|Bolero April 1998 |
Wow, was I a geek. I would clip magazine pictures of Milla Jovovich and taped them to my bedroom wall. I think I may have had a poster of her as well hanging with Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and Keanu Reeves--don't ask. The sad thing is that girls use to come over to my place and my room. Perhaps it explains why many of them never really stayed too long.
The role that is considered Milla's breakthrough was as Leeloo in the 1997 sci-fi movie The Fifth Element. Soon after, she starred in movies that received both accolades and critiques.
It is perhaps her role as Alice, the main protagonist in the Resident Evil franchise, that has made her a staple in sci-fi.
This month's issue of GQ magazine listed Milla Jovovich's Leeloo as one of five "Girls Who Increase Our Bandwidth!" I kind of agree. Perhaps it's her orange matted hair and being covered with what resembles toilet paper.
