The Blonde With An Edge
The tall blonde beauty is rarely just noticed for her looks, with a series of critically acclaimed acting accolades and notable roles, Uma Thurman has become known for taking risks in her career. Her personal life is more subdued, as a dedicated mother of two, and former wife of heartthrob Ethan Hawke, and actor Gary Oldman before him.
Uma rose to fame with her roles in films like Dangerous Liaisons, and Pulp Fiction, but it was her role in Kill Bill that showed her range and a decidedly edgy side of the very feminine star. Here, Uma talks about her life, passions, weaknesses and what makes her just another girl that can swing a sword with the best of them.
On choosing her unique roles: "In show business, to pry open doors in new areas is really tough. Until you have a successful comedy, people don't think you could be funny, which is what makes a director like Quentin Tarantino so special. He sees beyond the things on the resume that you've done to date and opens up wonderful cans of worms for you to crawl into. That's a cool thing."
