Milla Jovovich Nearly Quit Resident Evil Because of Michelle Rodriguez

Don’t get your panties in a bunch; it’s not THAT bad! Recently Inverse.com sat down with some of the principals involved in the record-setting film franchise, including Milla Jovovich, who dropped the following on fans.

I almost quit the movie. I was shooting something else, and Paul had hired Michelle Rodriguez to play Rain,” Jovovich recalled. “And she had just come off Girlfight and there was Oscar buzz. She was very hot at that moment, and my hotness had sort of been already four years old by that point. So Paul rewrote the script for her. It pretty much made my character “the girl,” and Rain was “the guy.” She got all of my big action scenes, and she became like Alice. And then Alice became this tag-along.

Jovovich continues, “I didn’t get the new draft until I was leaving to go to Germany from Canada, where I was working. I ended up reading the script on the plane, so by the time I landed in Berlin, I was livid. I got to the hotel and said, ‘We have to have to a big talk, or I’m going to be on a flight tomorrow morning.’ So Paul ended up coming over that evening, and we literally sat for three hours and went through the script, page by page. He was like, ‘What do you mean? This didn’t change that much!’ So I was like, ‘Okay, why don’t we start with page one?’ I pointed out every time I felt like my great scenes were taken away. That was how we started our relationship.

Honestly speaking, I couldn’t picture the franchise without Jovovich so at the end of the day we’re happy she signed up for 6 films of absolute goofy silliness. For more hit up the above link.
