There aren’t a lot of child models turned child actors turned kickass action stars out there, but thats exactly what Milla Jovovich is. Jovovich’s career has spanned over twenty years (is it crazy that we remember seeing a Seventeen magazine with her in it when she was 12?), and the 33-year-old admits that she has “a 45-year-old’s career,” which sounds about right. Most famous for inducing nerdgasms in films like The Fifth Element and the Resident Evil franchise, she pretty much kicks ass on and off screen. In a recent interview with the Guardian, Jovovich discussed everything from her turn as a child star to being a mom and soon-to-be-wife.
On the toll being an action star has taken on her modeling shoots: “The knuckles? They’re all cut up. They used to be really soft, but they can’t use them any more. They use someone else’s.”
On why she finally decided to get married to director Paul Anderson: “Having a baby. That pretty much decided it. So we don’t have a little bastard running around.”
On being a child actor: “I was no Dakota Fanning. What are you going to do? I was one of those annoying child actresses. I didn’t know who I was. So I didn’t know how to be anything else. Listen, there are some people that are born with talent. I’m not one of those people.”
On her star-making nerd oeuvre: “Resident Evil started out as this fun project. I went in for it as a joke. ‘Sure, I’ll go make an action movie,’ I thought, ‘This’ll be cool, because my brother loves the video game so much.’ It’s turned into a steady job.”
On her life, currently: “And now we have three weeks to get [the wedding] all together. I’m a little overwhelmed. I’ve got to finish the press for this film, get married, then I’m off to Toronto to kick some zombie butt.”
Patrick Swayze has been looking a little better these days, although the actor is still battling pancreatic cancer. His secret is something green and herbal. Patrick has reportedly been smoking medical marijuana which helps ease his nausea, anxiety, and insomnia. The miracle treatment has made him gain weight and feel “more normal than he has in months,” according to a source.
“Patrick was rapidly losing weight because he couldn’t keep food down,” a source says. “He was so weak, he needed help getting around.” Persuaded by friends to try marijuana, Patrick gave it a shot and is more comfortable as he battles his sickness. [Photo: Getty Images]
Paris Hilton said “Au Revior!” to ex-boyfriend Doug Reinhardt in June, but could the heiress be considering taking the Hills star back? Paris and Doug were reportedly spotted Saturday night on an Air Pacific flight to Fiji en route to the Red Bull Island (Luacala) that was once owned by Malcolm Forbes. So what was the former couple doing traveling together? A romantic island vacation to rekindle the flames? [Source: NYPost; Photo: Getty Images]
Cipriani’s in downtown Manhattan is not the setting for bar brawls and such, it is what you’d call a classy venue. On Wednesday night, however, Constantine Maroulis got into a fist fight with another party-goer there, over a comment made about Paula Abdul leaving American Idol. Seriously.
Maroulis was just sitting there talking about the show that made him famous, when he expressed his desire to see Paula return to the show. All of a sudden and from out of nowhere, “Some drunk dude tackled me in the middle of the concert and jumped on me,” he Tweeted. Said another source, “It was hilarious! Constantine got into it with this guy who was probably 6 inches shorter and 60 pounds lighter. The guy body-slammed him and punched him in the face and then just stood up, straightened his tie, and said, ‘Bitch, don’t you ever,’ before walking away.”
One of these days we’re going to get our Fly On The Wall machine working just to see a man in a suit say, “Bitch, don’t you ever.” [Photo: GettyImages]
Forget pilates or a low carb diet,Pamela Anderson keeps in shape by getting busy in bed. “Looking good to me has always been because of the amount of sex I’m getting,” Pamela says. “I’ve hardly been a member of a gym and I can’t follow diets.”
“When I’m not in a relationship and not – hypothetically speaking of course – having lots of sex, how do I keep fit? Oh, I don’t know, I can’t remember, oh I know – I jump up and down a lot!” the former Baywatch babe claims.
Although she now appears happy with surfer Jamie Padgett, at one time Pam thought any chance of a serious relationship were over. “A couple of years ago I was asked if I’d ever consider walking down the aisle again. At the time I said, ‘You know what, I’d love to, but whose going to have me?’ Seriously imagine the advert in the lonely hearts column: ‘Mother of two, boisterous boys. Slightly crazy ex-husband never too far away,” she said. [Source: The Sun; Photo: Getty Images]
Heidi Montag‘s Playboy issue is out, and in typical Speidi famewhoring fashion, the reality show couple walked the red carpet holding the magazine. The couple attended a special screening of G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra in Los Angeles yesterday, but Heidi and Spencer were more concerned with pushing Heidi’s red hot cover in front of the cameras than the movie. Their tactics will likely work – Spencer Pratt is an evil genius. Heidi’s issue will surely sell tons of copies! [Photos: Getty Images]
It’s so rare to see a photo of Kate Moss with her daughter Lila Grace, that we often forget that the six-year-old is around. Well, in between becoming Queen of Topshop, hanging out with Uncle Billionaire Green, who owns Topshop, and smoking the full quotient of 100 (approx) cigs a day, Kate is a very busy woman.
Sarcasm aside, a shot of Kate arriving to meet her daughter after a day hanging out on a yacht with boyfriend Jamie Hince and pals in St. Tropez, shows the little poppet is a chip off the old block. With those denim cutoffs, vintage-style blouse, cute looks and total cool disregard for the paps, Lila’s future as 2019′s Face Of The Year is pretty much in the bag. [Photo: FilmMagic]
Earlier this morning we told you about the engagement of True Blood co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. The Oscar-winning starlet wasted no time showing off her brand new bling; Paquin was spotted earlier today flaunting her gorgeous engagement ring to waiting paparazzi while walking her dogs. We love the vintage-y look of her ring – what do you think? [Photo: Splash News Online]

Yesterday,we brought you a variety of photos of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin posing for the cameras while doing a variety of masculine activities — including fishing, horseback riding, and doin’ the butterfly — all without a shirt on his barrel-chested torso. Well, ABC News just couldn’t leave well enough alone, and had to investigate the situation further… WITH HILARIOUS RESULTS.
Watch this if only for Dancing Yeltsin and Putin bodyslamming a woman to the ground… GENIUS.
There is no other filmmaker that captured the 1980′s in all their angsty, crazy-clothed, honest glory like John Hughes, and we are devastated to report that he died today at age 59. Hughes suffered a heart attack in New York City while visiting family, TMZ reports.
Hughes shaped our childhood in a big way – we grew up on his films and aspired to be in them (we so wanted to be able to rock Sloan Peterson’s shorts-and-boots combo, and every girl has her own personal version of Jake Ryan, doesn’t she?). We’d venture to guess that if you ask anyone born after 1975 what their favorite movie is, a huge number of them would would name The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink or Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, all of which Hughes wrote and directed. While he was primarily a writer later in his career, it’s the teen films from the ’80s that will live on forever.
Details are scarce at this point, but we’ll update you as news develops. If anyone feels like they can’t handle school tomorrow on account of this sad news, taking the day off is encouraged. We’ve included instructions on how to fake an illness for just such an occasion above, with the help of Ferris Bueller, natch.
