Jovovich Insisted On Stunt Work
Actress Milla Jovovich insisted on performing her own stunts in new film ULTRAVIOLET, because she feared the audience would be able to tell the difference between her and a stunt double. The Fifth Element actress is a huge fan of action movies and believes audiences today are sophisticated enough to know the difference. She says, "I like the audience to see my face when I'm doing crazy stunts. "I feel it's important. I love watching action movies and I'll see the back of somebody head and I'll immediately think 'whatever' (stunt double)." The star claims this role is unlike anything she's ever done: "On RESIDENT EVIL I'll run down a six story building and I'll be fine, but on this, I actually had to flick swords. "It's so crazy, it's insane. I've never done these kinds of stunts in a film."
