As Ever points out, her parents have traveled to Japan several times, as they are not only Hollywood luminaries, many of the projects the spouses have collaborated on are based on Japanese source material, with Jovovich starring in six resident Evil movies and 2020 Monster hunter, all directed or produced by her husband and adaptations of franchises created by Osaka-based video game publisher Capcom.

If you are an aspiring linguist who is also studying Japanese and perhaps despairing at the slow progress you are making with the language, take heart.. As a trained actress, Ever is in an advantageous position in terms of her ability to replicate pronunciation, intonation, and other aspects of diction. So even if you feel like you couldn’t put together a video that sounds as good, regardless of how many takes you’ve done, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re making slower progress than you should. or that you won’t reach your Japanese goals on time.
And furthermore, regardless of the results, Japan is always happy to see people from other countries actively interested in and participating in Japanese culture.
