Uma Thurman

Tall, sandy blonde, with sort of blue eyes, skinny in places, fat in others. An average gal.

Desperation is the perfume of the young actor. It’s so satisfying to have gotten rid of it. If you keep smelling it, it can drive you crazy. In this business a lot of people go nuts, go eccentric, even end up dead from it. Not my plan.
Uma Thurman

Fun wouldn’t be the right word… it was the most difficult, challenging, physical, extraordinary stretch I’ve ever had to make, in all those wild regards.
Uma Thurman

I had to go to a mirror and look at it. I couldn’t picture myself in my own head. I had no image beyond a stick figure. I wasn’t a mean person as a kid, or dumb, and something has to be said to justify excluding you.
Uma Thurman

Even, today, when people tell me I’m beautiful, I do not believe a word of it.
Uma Thurman

It is better to have a relationship with someone who cheats on you than with someone who does not flush the toilet.
Uma Thurman

When asked if I consider myself Buddhist, the answer is, Not really. But it’s more my religion than any other because I was brought up with it in an intellectual and spiritual environment. I don’t practice or preach it, however.
Uma Thurman

Modeling is basically ‘Buy more stuff! Don’t you want some more stuff? It will make you look ten years younger and men will like you!’ If I’d wanted to be a salesperson, I would have got a job selling.
Uma Thurman

Before I had my child, I thought I knew all the boundaries of myself, that I understood the limits of my heart. It’s extraordinary to have all those limits thrown out, to realize your love is inexhaustible.

But I think it is always difficult to have high expectations of yourself or anyone else.
