If you think Ever looks a little bit like someone else, you're right! She's the daughter of director Paul W. S. Anderson and his wife Milla Jovovich, who met on the set of the Resident Evil films. Ever got her start as a model and actor from a young age, and was probably inspired by her parents to get into the business!

2. She Starred as a Young Black Widow

You might have already seen Ever's acting skills in the film Black Widow, where she plays a younger Natasha Romanov. This is pretty appropriate casting, because Ever is of Russian heritage on her mum's side, just like her character! She is also fluent in Russian!
