Cape Town - It seems Hollywood star Milla Jovovich (42) has fallen in love with Cape Town.

Three years after shooting zombie apocalypse movie Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in the city, she’s returned with her family for a visit.

The Survivor actress shared a few Instagram pics of herself with husband, British director Paul Anderson (40), their two daughters, Ever (10) and Dashiel (3), and the family au pair enjoying the sites at the Waterfront in Cape Town.

"It’s the weekend, South African style! Here we are taking a beautiful stroll at the waterfront in the Marina with a view of Cape Town’s iconic #tablemountain in the background! Tomorrow we go on a safari, so be prepared for some awesomeness to come! #capetowndiary,” she captioned the post.


Capetonians were particularly excited by the Ukrainian-born star’s visit.

"Welcome to my beautiful country! I have no doubt you will love everything about it!" one fan commented.

"You are in my mother city!!! Whoop whoop! Enjoy your time here with the family, all Cape Town's beautiful places and your game drive. You won’t be disappointed :) Have fun!" another said.

In an interview with Channel24 in 2015, Milla remarked that Cape Town and Los Angeles, where she lives, are very alike.

"We’ve got the beach and the mountains and it’s very close to nature. So it reminds me a lot of Los Angeles," she said.
