Milla Jovovich for the October 2012 Issue of Flare Magazine

Milla Jovovich is covering the October 2012 issue of FLARE magazine and she looks great. On the cover shot by Max Abadian, Mila is wearing a navy CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION dress, FALLON earrings, CBD bangles and a BACCARAT ring. In the issue she talks about her fighting roles, her daughter, being bullied and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from Milla's interview and you can go to Flare for more details. 

On fighting for strong female roles:
“I would get more excited about the stronger parts, and maybe I fought harder to get them,” she says. … “I think for the most part, female power is portrayed in the bedroom,” she says. Jovovich has rarely gone for parts she calls “the seductress,” and clearly relates to Alice as a role model. “She’s strong, she makes decisions, she’s loyal, she’s working for a good cause,” she says.
On coping with bullies:
“I knew it was so temporary. School is going to disappear, and there’s a whole future out there.” Work gives Jovovich her strength. “The more you work, the more confident you are, because you put the time in, you put the energy in, and no one can take that away from you,” she says. “You leave with the power. You have that now to take with you in whatever you choose to do.” 
 On being the kind of person whom adversity has honed, rather than crushed: “We’re definitely fighters,” she says. “My mom and I are survivors. We came to America with nothing, and built everything from the ground up.” She describes her mother as strict and her childhood as shaped by discipline and hard work. “I wasn’t raised just to be a pretty girl, or somebody’s wife.”    
On her mother:
“I would always hear her whispering in my ear, ‘I’ll kill myself if anything happens to you!’” Jovovich says, laughing. “So, I kind of knew when to say no; when not to continue the party, because I whole-heartedly believed that if anything had happened to me my mom would have killed herself.” … “I still put her through hell,” she says. “She didn’t know that in my head I knew when to stop. I tell her, ‘My God, it could have been so much worse!’”

On her daughter:
“I definitely want to keep [Ever] as dependant as any young girl her age—which is relative, but I have a picture in my head of what that should be.”
