 Milla Jovovich told how the image of Leela from The Fifth Element was created

Famous American actress Milla Jovovich gave an interview to Vogue, in which she told how the image of her character Leela in Luc Besson's film “The Fifth Element” was created ;.

Jovovich noted that she failed to pass the audition for the role the first time. It wasn't until a few months later that she ran into the director of the film at a hotel, where he noticed the artist's vintage style and suggested that she try again.

“I can't even describe how happy I was. My dream then came true",– Jovovich said.

One of the biggest challenges in making the film was coming up with Leela in the birth scene. The actress suggested using an ordinary medical gown, later the idea grew into an image with bandages.

“When people get injured, they just apply bandages to cover the necessary areas of the skin,” — Jovovich explained. Her idea was supported by fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier and later we saw it in the film.

"Lilu– bright, positive character. She brings out the best in people and she is better than all of us. She – love. In this sense, she is the fifth element. Lilu helped me figure out who I want to be”, — shared the actress.
