Milla Jovovich

  1. Claire Danes, The Mod Squad, 1998.     Hardly matched the pizazz of her French  actioner, The Fifth Element, 1997, when she was man and wife with director Luc Besson. Or, as co-star Ian Holm (or his ghostwsriter) put it, “man and waif.”
  2. Zenzele Uzoma, Cecil B Demented, 2000.    The Kiev-born model-actress - Luc Besson's St Joan in 1999 - was eager to join John Waters' movie send-up until its delay clashed with Wim Wenders' Million Dollar Hotel.
  3. Cameron Diaz, Charlie's Angels, 2000. Her fellow angels were due to be Alyssa Milano and... a likely story!... Julia Roberts.
  4. Anne Hathaway, The Princess Diaries, 2001.    Among 22 youngstars (Jessica Albato Reese Witherspoon) rejecting the awkward San Francisco teenager being groomed (by Julie Andrews!) to inherit the Genovia throne - after director Garry Marshall’s (rather surprising) first choiceof Juliette Lewis quit.
  5. Renée Zellweger, Chicago, 2002.
  6. Jennifer Garner, Daredevil, 2003.     Also considered for Elektra: Jessica Alba, Jolene Blalock, Neve Campbell, Penelope Cruz, Portia de Rossi, Claire Forlani, Angie Harmon, Salma Hayek, Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman, Lucy Liu,  Mia Maestro,  Rhona Mitra, Bridget Moynahan, Natalie Portman, Kyra Sedgwick, Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon.  Plus Norwegian ballet dancer Natassia Malthe, who became Typhoid in Garner’s Elektra spin-off.
  7. Kate Beckinsale, Underworld,   2003.    So goeth the legend... As if director Len Wiseman was going to build a franchise around anyone other than the lady becominghis lover... and wife.
  8. Juliette Lewis, Blueberry: L'expérience secrète, France, 2004.     Possibly the single worst movie adaptation of a comicbook ever foisted upon the French (or any other public.
  9. Malin Ackerman, Watchmen, 2008.      Not so much “Who watches the watchmen?” as Aristotle asked, but who them playeth? As Alan Moore’s forcibly retired superheroes were called back to duty in an alternate 1985 America - Jovovich, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Connelly, Jamie Lee Curtis, Hilary Duff, Hilary Swank were up for Laurie Jupiter, aka Silk Spectre II. Cast included actors playing Brezhnev, Castro, JFK and Jackie, Kissinger, Nixon, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Andy Warhol…
  10. Rhonda Rousey, The Expendables 3, 2013.    Jovovich, Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan were in negotiations to join Sylvester Stallone’s testostorone Dad’s Army. None of fhem joined and Milla’s role as respun to accommodate Rousey’s unique abilities. She was the first American woman to win an Olympic judo medal (bronze at Beijing, 2008) and the ex-Ultimate Fighting Championship’s women’s bantamweight champion.
  11. Carrie-Ann Moss, Pompeii, 2013.   Director Paul WS Anderson’s wife was not, as per usual, his leading lady this time.  Maybe she knew - he  certainly did - that most of Aurelia’s scenes would be slashed from this Fast & Furious on horseback.
