Actress Milla Jovovich credits late NWA star Eazy-E with giving her the
confidence to become a top model. The "Resident Evil" star fears she'd be an
unknown if it wasn't for the rapper's music.
She tells Los Angeles radio station KCRW, "That [music] definitely changed my
world. In a great way, actually, because I had been raised by a very strict
Eastern European family and this was sort of my call for freedom.
"I had started working at such a young age. I was 9 years old and my mom
always had so much control, and pretty much through Eazy-E, and that kind of,
like, freedom, I started to wear baggy jeans and big T-shirts and baseball caps
and just act like, 'Yeah, whatever.'"
