Pregnant Milla Jovovich has been craving bone marrow.
The Resident Evil actress – who has gained 70lbs since falling pregnant with her first child with fiance director Paul W.S. Anderson – was in Paris when she experienced an overwhelming desire for “the leg of a cow”.
She told Grazia magazine: “I was craving bone marrow one day, and I scoured the whole of Paris searching for the leg of a cow. When I finally found what I was looking for, I cut it in half, digging out the yellowish
substance, slathering it all over bread.”
The Ukrainian model, who is expecting a girl, has developed a new relationship with food since falling pregnant.
She said: “Before I got pregnant, I really didn’t care about food. I saw it as fuel, not something to sit down and enjoy. As an actress and model, I lived on cigarettes and coffee, and jet-lag tended to kill off any appetite I had.
“My diet for most of this year has been – for breakfast, four eggs with bacon, toast and butter, if I was at home. Then if I was at a diner, I’d have a Mexican omelette, a stack of pancakes and strawberry milkshake.
“I’d stuff myself with cookies all morning – whatever was in the cupboard really – then I’d have a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts for dessert. And I once ate two whole packs of coffee cake in one sitting!”
