A life-changing decision
Nowadays Resident Evil is automatically associated in our minds with Milla Jovovich, yet not many people know that Jovovich nearly turned down the iconic role.
She originally showed interest for the part since she was a big fan of the video games on which the movies were based.
She explains that she considered giving up the part when she discovered that Michelle Rodriguez was cast to play Rain, fearing that she would take all the exciting action scenes and steal her spotlight.
Feeling threatened by the actress, Jovovich gave director Paul W.S Anderson an ultimatum, and eventually, they sat together for hours going over the scrip to make sure her role was not overshadowed.
Anderson, the same director who she drove crazy over the script, later became her husband and the two have been happily married since 2009.
One decision could have not only changed her career, but her beautiful family, too.
