Milla Jovovich For FLARE October 2012

Milla Jovovich is the October 2012 cover girl for Canada’s best-selling fashion magazine FLARE.

On the cover she wears a feminine navy Calvin Klein dress which was accessorized with statement jewellery including Fallon earrings, a CBD bangle and a Baccarat ring, whilst inside we see her wearing an edgier look from Peter Pilotto.

The model, mum and ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ star talks about dealing with anxiety on set, her mother’s tough love, and finding love with her husband Paul W.S. Anderson.

On playing an action hero in ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’: “You have to spend the whole day in this state of perpetual fear. The fight-or-flight instinct is in overdrive. It was a headache! Literally, my head would be pounding at the end of the day!”

On how she survived childhood bullying: “I knew it was so temporary. School is going to disappear, and there’s a whole future out there.”

On how her mother scared her straight: “I would always hear her whispering in my ear, ‘I’ll kill myself if anything happens to you!’ So, I kind of knew when to say no; when not to continue the party, because I whole-heartedly believed that if anything had happened to me my mom would have killed herself.”

On finding love with director Paul W.S. Anderson on the ‘Resident Evil’ franchise: “It kind of seems typical, but there’s no one else that you talk with as much as the director. If you’re going to fall in love, it’s hard for it not to happen with that person—the one you’re spending the most time with, and having the most interesting conversations. I think it would have been challenging for me to have made the movies and had a boyfriend that wasn’t working on the film too, because you get so into it.”

    From a proud Canadian, thank you FC for profiling Flare!!!
    Also @Noemi: Yes, she does look like Linda on the cover, but she actually does look like Linda in real life too!!

    She’s flawless to the point of making me like a Calvin Klein dress.

    Not very fond of the dress on the cover, but I love the ring and her striking beauty. The Peter Pilotto is a great shot as well.

    Milla! I adore her. She is a talented actress (have you seen her in Stone, Dummy and as Joan of Arc?
    She is super stylish, confident and such a great model. She isn’t addicted to botox like Ms. Evangelista.

    Very pretty. I like the Peter Pilotto look. I had to do a double take- she really does resemble Linda Evangelista in these photos

    The cover is too much photoshopped, in my opinion, she reminds me Linda Evangelista…

      I had the exact same thought!

      • Christine August 28, 2012 at 16:28 #

        Thought the same.
