The Final Chapter actors shared their time together in South Korea on Instagram
Milla Jovovich and Lee Joon-Gi have been promoting their upcoming film Resident Evil: The Final Chapter whilst using Instagram to share their time together.
The sixth and final installment of the Resident Evil franchise, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson sees Jovovich step into the role of lead protagonist Alice the final time.
At a press conference for the film, Lee Joon Gi revealed that he was anxious about not being able to live up to expectations and almost rejected the role before Anderson convinced him to reconsider by praising his acting ability.
Both Joon-Gi and Jovovich demonstrated great chemistry in real life too. The pair were seen attending the Korean premier of the film arm-in-arm. The two laughed and danced together on the red carpet.
Jovovich had previously praised Joon Gi for his martial arts and stunts, calling him “inspiring”. She also complimented his ability in contrasting his vicious character and “pretty boy looks”.
At the press conference, Milla revealed she was scared when Joon Gi offered her pig trotters. Joon Gi responded by laughing and saying, “People always have a nervous breakdown when tasting it for the first time.”
Joon Gi said he was thankful that Jovovich kept her promise to come to Korea. To welcome her to his country, he took Jovovich to dinner and presented her with cosmetics and gifts.
Jovovich said she made “a reservation” for a cameo appearance in his next movie and joked, “You don’t have to pay me. Just give me cosmetics instead.”
The pair used their social media accounts on Instagram to praise one another. The two certainly seem like genuinely great friends. Jovovich even shared her Korean BBQ experience with her fellow Resident Evil actor.
