Milla = Mildred Harris. Love.


Milla Jovovich played Charlie Chaplin's first wife, Mildred Harris, in the 1992 biopic Chaplin, also starring Robert Downey Jr. Her on-screen time is brief (just like Chaplin & Harris' marriage) but she played it so sinewy. Mildred Harris was a 1920's starlet, who Charlie married on a whim when she was just 16 years old. Their marriage lasted little over two years. I love the costume design in this movie, especially during the Hollywood parties Chaplin attends in the 20's and 30's, the wardrobes are so rich, flamboyant and dapper. And those headpieces. OMG.
