Milla: Cool working with De Niro

Milla Jovovich loved working with Robert De Niro

Milla Jovovich says it was "super cool" getting to work with Robert De Niro.

The Resident Evil actress could hardly contain her excitement as she sat next to the acting legend at an official press conference for their new movie, Stone, at the Toronto International Film Festival.

"Robert asked me to call him Bob which I thought was awesome," Milla laughed. "I was like, 'Yes, I'm one of the few people that get to call Mr De Niro Bob,' so I feel super cool."

In Stone, De Niro plays a hardened parole officer who is confronted by the young wife (Milla) of convicted arsonist Gerald Creeson (Edward Norton) during a parole review.

"I think he was a little intimidated by me," Milla joked about her first meeting with De Niro.

And the actress revealed he had a profound effect on her acting.

"It was such an amazing experience to work in a way that is so organic and natural that it really doesn't matter what a script says when somebody is trying to find something real and you've gotta help them do it," she explained. "It was a great learning experience for me as an actress."
