Milla Jovovich is loved by geeks because of the Resident Evil films, but her new movie, Stone, is a serious departure. She talks to Nicole LaPorte about acting with Robert De Niro.

In interviews with Milla Jovovich, men are always falling all over themselves, and, in some cases, trying to keep their gaze above the neck-line. Just check out her sit-down with Conan O’Brien, back in 1994, when Jovovich showed up to the late-night talk show braless.

This was long before her Resident Evil fame, and the 18-year-old supermodel was dressed in funky hippie couture: long, flowery skirt, pink T-shirt, and black Converse sneakers. As she chatted with O’Brien—whose eyes remained steadily focused on her 100-watt smile—she was like a kid who’d just downed eight cans of Coke, bursting out with strange jokes, bragging about her smoking habit, and doubling over in too-hearty laughter.

That was then. Sitting down with Jovovich recently, there was no evidence of any cocky brattiness. Now 34, and a wife and mother, Jovovich exuded a distinct demureness as she sat on a sofa in a hotel suite in Toronto, where in September she was promoting her new film, Stone, which opened this weekend. She was wearing an elegant, strapless dress and no jewelry, save for the diamond rock on her left hand (she’s married to Resident Evil director Paul W. S. Anderson) and a pair of feathery earrings. Her copper-colored hair fell to her shoulders in soft waves.

You may know her from Resident Evil, and you will see her in the upcoming Stone opposite Robert De Niro, but since the late '80s she's done everything from modeling to singing. Herein, a tribute to one of the great almost-important actresses of our time.

You know her from: The Fifth Element, Resident Evil, the occasional artfully nude photo you will find when you Google her now.

She will become forever cemented in your consciousness because of: Stone (out October 8).

Edward Norton and Robert De Niro may be Stone's stars, but Jovovich is its spirit. As Lucetta, a kindergarten teacher who will do anything to help her arsonist husband (Norton) get parole, Jovovich is a mix of vulnerability and ruthlessness: She talks just as sweetly while pushing a kid on a swing as she does while pushing her hand down a parole officer's (De Niro) pants. She exemplifies the duality of every character in the film, but where others suppress their sinister side, whether out of fear, remorse, or desperation, Jovovich embraces hers. She controls it. Relishes it. And makes it feel volatile and undeniably real. And because of this performance, for the first time, basically out of nowhere, she seems like the kind of actress who could win an Oscar. Maybe not for this role, but someday. [source]

I found two clips of the movie, "Two Moon Junction", starring a very young Milla Jovovich. I believe it was her official film debut (during the year I was born ironically - 1988), she was thirteen. She's seen very briefly in the second clip. Maybe just around 15 Seconds.
