Svetlana Khodchenkova Hollywood debut
Long-awaited continuation of mutant X-Men adventures – “Wolverine: The Immortal” appeared on July 25 on the world screen. The film is bound to succeed in Russia, because the lead female role is played by beautiful Russian actress Svetlana Khodchenkova. A truly historic event for all Russians, despite the fact that our beauty had to be reincarnated as an evil bitch, nicknamed “The Viper“.
Russian film and theater actress Svetlana Khodchenkova was born on January 21, 1983 in Zheleznodorozhny, a small town about 6 miles east of Moscow. Svetlana is a Member of the Union of Cinematographers of Russia and the Hollywood Actors Guild. The most sexy blonde of Russian cinema, in the opinion of some, and the most anorexic of Russian actresses, according to others.
Looking at her downright noble appearance, it is difficult to imagine that the father of the actress, who left the family when Svetlana was only two years old, was a big fan of alcohol and failure in life. And that wicked old woman put up her mother with a three-year daughter in a terrible snowstorm of the house, resulting in a few months, the future star had to sleep in the basement of the 5-storey-house, fighting off rats.
Khodchenkova was only fourteen when she found a job in Moscow, in a famous Vyacheslav Zaitsev Fashion House. This work, or rather half-year internship in Japan, allowed Khodchenkova to learn English and get rid of terrible accent. One day she made a terrible offense – refused to one very influential sponsor. Thus Khodchenkova got into “black list” of models, which deprive her from work, not only in Russia, but all over the world.
Poor beauty, trapped in this situation, had no choice but to try acting career. Some time later the unknown actress drew the attention of the assistant of great Russian director Stanislav Govorukhin. She was invited to the casting to the film “Bless the Woman”. Seeing the true Russian beauty, the famous director fell in love with her, and gave her a leading role.
The decisive moment for her was the Russian-Polish project in 2007, “Little Moscow” – the tragic love of a wife of Soviet officer to the Polish man in the sixties of the last century. The film was almost unnoticed in Russia, but had a huge success throughout Europe. Khodchenkova was announced as the new standard of beauty.
Thousands of Polish men after the “Little Moscow” rushed to Moscow to look for the same beautiful as Svetlana, wives. And in fact, that over the next two years there were more than 12,000 Polish-Russian marriages.
In the spring of 2009 on the CNN appeared a report on how the rich Russian took off half of Central Park in New York for the filming of the Russian version of “Sex and the City.” Steven Spielberg watched this report and immediately fell in love with a beautiful blonde with huge eyes. In an hour he had a dossier on the Russian actress, and the day after Khodchenkova received an invitation to the casting in the drama. It’s no secret that Spielberg from a young age was a great womanizer. Back in the nineties of the last century he bought mountain chalet in the Sierra Nevada, where he invited aspiring actresses ‘to work on the future role”. No one could refuse to Stephen. And only one woman dared to refuse him – Khodchenkova. Warned about the mountain hobby of the producer, Svetlana went to Spielberg with Yaglych, her husband. She said “Alas, I am here with my husband! And he is so jealous! “. The role of Svetlana reduced to a minimum.
Coincidentally or not, but Khodchenkova divorced her jealous husband. And soon, as a kind of compensation she has received an offer to play the lead female role in the sixth part of the X-Men movie series “Wolverine: The Immortal.”
The role of “Viper” was to play Jessica Bie. But by the beginning of filming one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood married to Justin Timberlake. And after she had fallen away any desire to go to the other end of the world. That’s when one of the project leaders suggested the script “Viper” to the blonde actress, who could speak English and Japanese – Svetlana Khodchenkova, who costs to the producer of the film cheaper than the Hollywood film star – just 300,000 dollars (Jessica Biel required for this role, at least 3 million!). Khodchenkova has all chances to become the first Russian star in Hollywood. If not, she will remain in rank of only occasionally invited actresses.
