Just Back From Venice: Milla Jovovich

OCCUPATION Actor, singer
HOME BASE Los Angeles
ROLE MODEL Jovovich was in Venice recently as host of Cinema Against AIDS, a benefit sponsored by the American Foundation for AIDS Research. "We raised more than $500,000. It's the best thing I've ever done."
ON THE WATERFRONT "When I'm in Venice, I think of Don't Look Now with Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland. I love the city's old-world simplicity. It's not an out-all-night place like Paris. After dark, it's just beautiful, romantic, calm."
BETWEEN THE SHEETS "My room at the Hotel Bauer [San Marco 1459; 39-041/520-7022; doubles from $490] had twin beds pushed together—very European—and every night I ended up sliding down between them!"
CIP'S AHOY Jovovich says Cip's (Giudecca 10; 39-041/240-8575; dinner for two $150) at the Hotel Cipriani is her favorite restaurant. "The linguine with clams, and the liver and onions were insanely good. When I'm in Europe, I love to pig out."
