Milla Jovovich has a saucy way of cheering up her husband when they are thousands of miles apart - she sends him photos of herself naked.

The model-turned-actress is married to British moviemaker Paul W.S. Anderson but their busy careers can often keep the couple apart for weeks at a time.

However, Jovovich ensures her man is never too lonely by sending him naked pictures of herself via cell phone text message to remind him what he is missing.

Jovovich tells British magazine Hello!, "Paul sent me the funniest text the other day from the set. He said: 'In a field in the pouring rain, standing in mud...' And my answer was: 'In Cannes, drinking Champagne and standing in caviar...!' I sent him a nude picture, too, to make him feel better!"
