Milla Jovovich refuses to view fellow action movie babe Angelina Jolie as a rival - preferring instead to see her as an ally.

The Resident Evil: APOCALYPSE star embraces Tomb Raider beauty Jolie because she feels they are kindred spirits who are working towards the same goal.

The 28-year-old says, "I love going to see Angelina Jolie kick butt. She's so hot. As a woman, I relate to her rather than seeing her as competition.

"I might be nervous, like, 'Is my boyfriend watching the movie or watching Angelina?' But she's representing me up there. It's more like, 'Wow, she's one of us.'"
