The Resident Evil heroine, who has 2-year-old daughter Ever Gabo with husband Paul Anderson, said that she was forced into modelling when she was 12 years old and would never want the same for her child.
"She's not going to be a working child," MSN quotes Jovovich as saying. "For me it's kind of creepy, the whole working kid kind of thing.
"We were struggling financially, we were immigrants from Russia and we really needed to succeed. My mum saw talent in me and she wanted to make the best and most out of it.
"There is no real use for Ever to work. I definitely want my daughter to just be a child. Work hard in school and find your passion, slowly."
