With her new movie "Resident Evil: Retribution" set to hit theaters on September 14th, Milla Jovovich pitched in on promotions by covering the October 2012 issue of Flare magazine.

The 36-year-old Ukrainian born beauty sizzled in a Calvin Klein Collection dress, Fallon earrings, a CBD bangle and a Baccarat ring for the Max Abadian shot front page while dishing about everything from bullies and acting to her mother, husband and daughter.

Highlights from Miss Jovovich's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Flare!

On fighting for strong female roles:
“I would get more excited about the stronger parts, and maybe I fought harder to get them... I think for the most part, female power is portrayed in the bedroom."

On coping with bullies:
“I knew it was so temporary. School is going to disappear, and there’s a whole future out there.”

On her mother:
“I would always hear her whispering in my ear, ‘I’ll kill myself if anything happens to you!’ So, I kind of knew when to say no; when not to continue the party, because I whole-heartedly believed that if anything had happened to me my mom would have killed herself... I still put her through hell. She didn’t know that in my head I knew when to stop. I tell her, ‘My God, it could have been so much worse!’”

On her husband Paul Anderson:
“He’s amazing that way... He’ll have done this really cute little envelope, and inside are pictures of where we’re going and our itinerary and what to expect from the hotel.”

On her daughter:
“I definitely want to keep [Ever] as dependant as any young girl her age—which is relative, but I have a picture in my head of what that should be.”
