The actress told thelondonpaper that the injury to Paul Anderson was not the last time she hurt a crew member by mistake while filming.
Jovovich said: "I gave my fiancé Paul a black eye when he was directing me in the first Resident Evil. He was trying to plan the shot and said, 'Punch straight at me and pretend I'm the camera'.
"Of course I got too closed and punched him straight in the eye."
She added: "I'm pretty good at it, I guess. Sometimes I hit the stunt men a bit too hard. I gave the director of photography a black eye on the set of Resident Evil 2.
"He was teasing me and saying, 'Come on, punch me! Punch me!' trying to get me hyped up."
