She has been married to the actor Maxwell Caulfield since 1980.
Mills was born in London during World War II, though her parents, actor Sir John Mills and playwright Mary Hayley Bell, soon moved the family to the country to be away from the bombs. Mills is the older sister of actress Hayley Mills and of director Jonathan Mills. Because of her parents' fame, Mills grew up surrounded by famous actors such as Rex Harrison, David Niven, and Marlon Brando. Her godmother was Gone with the Wind actress Vivien Leigh, and her godfather was playwright Noel Coward.[2]

She attended the Elmhurst Ballet School, in Camberley, Surrey.[3]

From 1961 to 1964, Mills was married to Russell Alquist, Jr., with whom she had a son, Sean. In 1975 she married Michael Miklenda, with whom she had a daughter, Melissa, before divorcing him in 1980.

In 1980, Mills married the 18-years-younger Maxwell Caulfield. Mills said of the age difference, "Everybody is always interested in the fact that I am married to someone who is a lot younger than I am ... There are no rules, and that's what I believe, because age doesn't really matter. If you meet someone that you're really close to, someone that you love, stick with that."[1] Caulfield adopted Mills's daughter by her second husband, and the couple live in southern California
