Add actress-model Milla Jovovich, 28, to the list of stars moonlighting as fashion designers. The Ukranian-born Resident Evil star has joined forces with pal Carmen Hawk in launching a clothing line, appropriately named Jovovich-Hawk. “We’re trying to bring our personal style to people because we travel around the world getting bits and pieces and trying to implement that into our clothing,” Jovovich told us at the recent opening of the new L’Oreal Store in L.A. “We love contrast so we’re gonna use a wild fabric in a classic shape. We don’t want to change women’s bodies, we just want to bring out the best parts in a woman’s body.” Next up for Jovovich: Ultraviolet – “A really crazy kick-ass action film,” she says – and Fade Out with Billy Bob Thornton.
Actress Sienna Miller appears in the indie film Layer Cake very briefly – but apparently it’s a memorable five minutes. “It was slightly gratuitous,” she says of her love scene with star Daniel Craig. “But I can think of worse people to do raunchy scenes with.” Speaking of love scenes, we wanted to know why Miller’s beau, Jude Law, 31, didn’t accompany her to the film’s premiere in London. “He’s at home with his kids this evening,” she said (he has three with ex-wife Sadie Frost: Rafferty, 8; Iris, 3; and Rudy, 2). So, when they are together, do they discuss acting and the movie business? “We have better things to talk about than work,” says Miller, 32. The pair appear together in the upcoming remake of 1966’s Alfie, opening in October.
Dying to dine with Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck or Benjamin Bratt? Now’s your chance. The three sexy stars – plus Ricky Martin, Sarah Jessica Parker and others – are auctioning off dinner with themselves to raise money for the charity of their choice. (Parker is dining for UNICEF and NY Restoration Project, Affleck for the A-T Children’s Project … you get the idea.) Bidding for the “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” project is taking place on an eBay-run Web site accessible through sponsor Godiva’s site, through Oct. 3.
Caught in the Act
• Neve Campbell, having her hair dyed red with brown lowlights at the Jim Wayne Salon in Beverly Hills. The new look is for her upcoming movie, Relative Strangers, with Danny DeVito and Kathy Bates.
• Jake Gyllenhaal, having a snack by himself at Urth Caffé in West Hollywood. The Day After Tomorrow star munched on a lemon poppy seed cake and sipped an iced latte while reading the play Three Days of Rain by Richard Greenberg.
