Why Milla Needs a Hand Model

Whether you're paranoid or not about your less-than-perfect pedicure or even manicure, for that matter, keep Milla Jovovich in mind. The multitalented model and actress never seems to have a bad hair, makeup, or anything else kind of day. But with all of the punching, gun-toting, and sword-carrying she's done in many of her action-packed films, her hands have taken a beating.

As a result, directors even have to shoot around them in L'Oréal commercials. Of her knuckles, Milla said, "They're all cut up. They used to be really soft, but they can't use them any more. They use someone else's." While most of us don't have the luxury of having a hand model step in when needed, and most of our nicks and cuts don't come from pistols and daggers, the next time you feel embarrassed by your mangled mani, don't. Chalk it up to life experience.

This would makes sebse for most everyone. It's very hard and nearly imp. to keep hands looking perfect, esp. for closeups and such. If you use your hands on a daily basis they will show wear and tear.

My coworkers all have perfect manicures and pedicures and would ask why I never got manicures. I love to ride horses in my free time and after having one too many nails ripped off when caught in the reins, I now keep my nails very short. Besides, it's hard to keep the dust/dirt/manure from gathering under your nails and even harder to get it out!

Haha, that would be me. My fiance once asked when we started dating why I never got manicures, and I explained they don't last but a day with my job. Personally, I think its a waste. I just keep my nails clean and short and I am good to go.
