Milla Jovovich Talks Motherhood And Parental Responsibility
Milla Jovovich sat down with Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf and talked about being a mom and social responsibility. The actress is promoting her newest movie, ‘The Fourth Kind’ and says parents need to take control of whether or not their children should watch the creepy thriller.
Her message to parents.
“You’ve got to know your kids like the back of your hand and make sure they’re honest with you and not scared to tell you things. I know when Ever goes to school I’ll be letting my little bird go, but I just want to make sure she tells me everything that happened, good or bad.”
Take charge of what your children watch.
“I think parents need to take a lot more responsibility than they do about whether it’s OK for their children to go to Resident Evil or any other movie with violence or sex or whatever. It’s really easy to blame Hollywood for violence having an effect on kids, but movies would have no power if parents would just set their own standards. And it’s the same with video games.”
Now she’s feeling good as a mom.
“Before you have kids, you create so many problems that are centered in yourself. You’re thinking, Am I ready for this audition? Am I good enough? Now that I have a kid, it’s not such a big deal. Even if I don’t get the job, I know I’m going to be really busy at home. Being a mother to my daughter, Ever, is a full-time job. Now it’s all about my baby, her growing up well and getting everything she needs. Everything else is just a plus.”
Are you planning on letting your kids watch ‘The Fourth Kind’? How about yourself? Looking forward to the release?
