Five Top Models Turned Actors Gallery

Milla Jovovich: Born in Kiev, she was spotted at age 11 by famed photographer Richard Avedon, who featured her in Revlon's "Most Unforgettable Women in the World" ads. Jovovich went on to appear on dozens of magazine covers and in campaigns for several brands including Banana Republic, Donna Karan, Gap and Versace. But she's also carved out a major acting career as star of the sci-fi "Resident Evil" series (directed by her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson) and has appeared in films as varied as "The Fifth Element" ''He Got Game" and "Stone." But she still keeps a hand in fashion, in recent years serving as co-designer for the clothing line Jovovich-Hawk and sitting in the front row of shows for Chanel, John Galliano and Nina Ricci. (Jovovich also recorded her first album when she was just 16. But that's a whole 'nother list.)
