‘I Was Like An Older Sister’: Milla Jovovich On Babysitting Bruce Willis’ Kids On The Fifth Element Set

The popular sci-fi film The Fifth Element, starring Bruce Willis, turned 27 on May 7, 2024. With this, the 48-year-old Hollywood actor Milla Jovovich als reached a 30-year milestone in her career, which she found unfathomable.

Ahead of The Fifth Element’s anniversary, Jovovich recalled her “special moment” from the film’s shooting and times spent with Willis’s children– Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah– on the set. She referred to them as “a special family.”

Milla Jovovich recalled her days from filming The Fifth Element

In an interview with People, Jovovich mentioned that Willis was quite older than him at the time of filming The Fifth Element and so she was “more friends” with his kids and Willis’s then-wife Demi Moore. “They would come to visit me,” she said. 

Speaking about “babysitting” Willis’s kids, Jovovich said, “We would listen to music together and dance” which also gave the parents to spend “some mommy daddy time” during the shooting of the film. “I was like an older sister,” she added. 

“They’re so cool, and such wonderful girls,” she said adding how the three girls still keep in touch with Jovovich even after 27 years. “They have such a great relationship with Demi, and I love that. I look at them as a family unit, and I just think it’s really wonderful what they’ve created,” she said.

She said that it, “would have to be one of those shining moments in my life, in my career as something that really mattered to me as a human and an actress.”
