 I have to say, anybody from 'The Help.' I loved the actress from `The Artist,' I'm excited about quite a few movies tonight, but those two in particular.

 I was a real kind of fantasy geek growing up and watching Kung-Fu theater with my dad every Sunday. I always had this dream of being one of those ninjas that hops from tree to tree. I love to challenge myself, and I don’t cut myself any slack.

 Robert asked me to call him Bob which I thought was awesome, I was like, ‘Yes, I’m one of the few people that get to call Mr De Niro Bob,’ so I feel super cool. I think he was a little intimidated by me. It was such an amazing experience to work in a way that is so organic and natural that it really doesn’t matter what a script says when somebody is trying to find something real and you’ve gotta help them do it. It was a great learning experience for me as an actress.

 At one point I remember they put all this body make-up on my hands to make me pale and they looked beautiful, but once I got the costume on I came in and the make-up artist was like, ‘What happened to your hands?’ And I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ I looked down and my hands were blue and looked bruised! We were trying to find all these different color combinations to put on my hands cause all of a sudden my hands were blue and bloated and then we realised the arms of the costume were so tight it cut off my circulation so we had to cut the costume open to get the blood flowing and they finally went back to normal.

 Basically, I lost 10 pounds a month for four months. Since I was around 200 pounds when I gave birth, losing 40 pounds was just a drop in the ocean. I put away the cake and pizza. But the weight didn’t slip off. It took me another eight months to get it all off.

 The rule when you get older, it really is a choice between your a*s and your face. It’s a little cellulite on the booty or you look like a hag. As you get older, you need a little weight on your face to look better and younger.

 My mom said the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. My two-year-old daughter Ever would be such an actress. She’s constantly going, ‘Okay, you be Ever and I’m momma,’ and we have to improvise a scene together with her playing me. You should see her singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow. She has a voice that’s horrific, but the emotion is just so real.

 Oh, she goes with me everywhere, she’s always on set with me. Now, I’m filming Three Musketeers and she’s having a great time because I got her all these super-cheap princess dresses, like the bigger the better, the more cheesy, rhinestone-y, sequined stuff, and she loves it. 
— Milla Jovovich is enjoying motherhood / September 10, 2010
 She’s not going to be a working child. For me it’s kind of creepy, the whole working kid kind of thing. We were struggling financially, we were immigrants from Russia and we really needed to succeed. My mom saw talent in me and she wanted to make the best and most out of it. There is no real use for Ever to work. I definitely want my daughter to just be a child. Work hard in school and find your passion, slowly.
