There were plenty of celebrities posing in front of cameras at Saturday’s “March for Our Lives” against gun ownership, but one stood apart in her hypocrisy.
Actress Milla Jovovich made a name for herself in the long-running “Resident Evil” franchise, which featured the Russian-born actress as a gun-toting hero fighting in a zombie apocalypse. She is married to director Paul W.S. Anderson, who also marched. He directed the “Resident Evil” movies, as well as “Death Race,” “Mortal Kombat,” and “Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.”
Jovovich defended her participation in the march, but her excuse when awry when she actually admitted that Americans get violent after watching her films. “I know that many fans around the world watch my films and don’t go pick up guns and use them in their classroom afterwards. It’s only here that it happens,” he said on her Instagram account.
Even more embarrassing, she managed to misspell “Amendment” on a sign she made for the march (seen above).
Milla Jovovich and her third husband, Paul W. S. Anderson, brought their daughter Dashiel Edan to join the tens of thousands attending the March For Our Lives rally in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday.
The Kiev-born 42-year-old realized some might consider her hypocritical demanding ‘common sense gun laws’ since she’s built her entire career on being a glamorous, gun-toting action star.
‘People say i shouldn’t speak about common sense gun laws because i use guns in my films. That my making violent films is partly responsible for the shooting epidemic in America today,’ the Fifth Element alum – who boasts 9.3M social media followers – explained on Instagram Friday.
Jovovich (born Milica Jovovic) marched from Pershing Square to Grand Park while raising up a neon poster which read: ‘Automatic weapons belong in the military not in schools!’
And while there was no sign of their 10-year-old daughter Ever Gabo, the 53-year-old Englishman cradled little Dashiel, who will celebrate her third birthday on April 1.
Jovovich’s attention grab went off the rails when people realized her sign featuring a slam of the Second Amendment featured a spelling error.
Unfortunately, Milla’s second sign featured the the word amendment misspelled declaring: ‘Slavery was also legal when the second ammendment was written.’
‘It was so beautiful and so powerful. I’m so happy I could be there!’ the Toyota spokesmodel gushed after the event.
‘I hope the students of Parkland are feeling proud today seeing the massive movement they have started. The energy today in downtown LA was electric. I felt so proud to march today with my family and our friends.’
The Robot Chicken guest star and her family were joined at the Everytown for Gun Safety demonstration by their friends Oly & Julia Obst as well as Glenwyn Irvine and several children.
Anderson – who’s worked with his muse in seven films – penned a revision of Lionsgate sci-fi action thriller Hummingbird, which Milla begins filming this summer, according to Deadline.
