    Maybe this Twitter shit is manipulated.BTW.Bogdanovich Jovovich is clearly an Serbian Name.Remember the Director “Peter Bogdanovich” from USA.He has Serbian Heritage too.And again the same Name.This was only for Example.

    Montenegro is in real an former Province from Serbia.But for political Reasons it becomes an State.In Montenegro lived since Centurys over 250.000 Ethnic Serbs.So how the Father of Milla can be Montenegrin ????Even on her own Website its clerly stated that her Father is an Serb.

    It seems to me that here are many Serbian Enemys who denie Serbian Heritage of some Famous Persons only to elevate themself.

    I know there is a lot of controversy about who is her father Serbian or Montenegrin. Everywhere write that Serbian, but on her official website and twitter she stated that she is a Montenegrin.
    p.s Her birth name: Milica Bogdanovna Jovovic. Natasa is her coisin name, but not her. It’s an old mistake of press.
