Milla Jovovich Finds It 'Disrespectful to Play the Damsel in Distress'

Milla Jovovich is opening up about her decision to portray strong, powerful female characters in her movies.

The 41-year-old actress discussed her roles in both The Fifth Element and the Resident Evil series during a recent interview with The New York Times.

“We live in patriarchal society,” she stated. “We’re dealing with it so much in America. So I think it’s more important now to show women in positions of power. If audiences go to see women in action, that means they believe a woman can do that.”

“There’s always going to be some voyeuristic misogyny,” she went on, but noted that directors like her husband Paul W.S. Anderson are examples of men who believe in casting women in these roles.

“When I did The Fifth Element, I realized I was never going to be the girl in the movie that goes ‘watch out’ or ‘help me,’ she added. “I felt like, on a personal level, it felt disrespectful to play the damsel in distress.”

“It’s crazy the stories I’ve heard,” Milla shared about girls who have been inspired by her Resident Evil performance. “The power of a pop-culture image. It’s everything.”

'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter' Is a Massive Hit in China

Milla Jovovich‘s new movie Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is making a massive amount of money during its opening weekend in China!

The film was released in the U.S. a month ago and didn’t do too well at the box office, but the studio clearly made this film for its international fans as it’s doing amazing business around the world.

The Final Chapter, which also stars Ali Larter, has already earned $140 million worldwide and now it can add $70 million from its first two days in release in China, according to Deadline.

The movie grossed $33 million on its first day in theaters in China, which amounted to the third-highest opening day of all time in the country.

Thanks to the success overseas, it looks like Resident Evil: The Final Chapter might not actually be the final chapter in the franchise!
