Childhood. First challengesWhen Milla was 5 years old, her parents moved first to London, and then to America. The family settled in Los Angeles, but their pink dreams of becoming successful collapsed soon. The father did not manage to get a doctor's license, and the mother failed to get filmed because of her accent and tough competition. The situation got worse when Bogdan Jovovich was imprisoned for fraud with medical insurance for a long time.
Being left alone and understanding that the dream is to be achieved only by means of hard work, Milla's mother dedicated all her time and money to the development of her daughter. Milla attended music, ballet, and acting classes. Galina began organizing photo sessions for her daughter. To do this, they had to spend most of the time in the car, traveling to different cities to attend meetings and arrange photo sessions. In the car, the teenage girl had to do homework, sleep and do her first make-ups.
