Hollywood is a small, small (elite) world. Celebrities of the entertainment industry tend to date within their small circle simply because it is hard for them to pursue authentic relationships, thus the best way to assure a trustworthy partner, many celebrs turn to their co-workers or people involved in a similar career. In fact such behavior is encouraged. It often results in free publicity for projects, and some really beautiful–and occasionally screwed up–children. It’s pretty common for actors, actresses and musicians to hitch their wagons for a short time, and every once in awhile for the long term. But actors/actresses dating their directors? It’s rare. Here are a few who were so bold!
10. Milla Jovovich
Milla Jovovich was once the hottest up-and-coming, most intriguing, mysterious actress in Hollywood. Her small, but crucial role in Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused came with her never uttering a line outside of singing a song. Milla has been making movies for over 20 years, and when she fell in love with playing the character of Alice in the Resident Evil series, she also fell in love with the writer and director, Paul W.S. Anderson. No, this is not the same Paul Anderson who is married to Maya Rudolph–that is Paul Thomas Anderson. Paul W.S. and Milla bonded over the infected creatures in Resident Evil. So much so, they continued to make several sequels together, got married and made babies together. And as all megafans are well aware, Milla and Paul have collaborated on, and will release on final Resident Evil flick in 2017.Photo by REX
