Since the breakup, Uma has been dating handsome hotelier Andre Balazs, but glamorous red carpet photos only tell half the story. "I feel very lucky," Uma says, "… in the middle of a very difficult period of my life, when I was in really, really bad shape, somebody very nice showed up."
Even though things in Uma's life are looking up, the pain from her divorce is evident. Mid-sentence, her eyes fill with tears and her voice falters. "Oh, gosh," Uma says with surprise, "I don't talk about [the divorce] very much. I'm surprised actually, because I've been so cool for so long."
After five years of marriage, Ethan and Uma's divorce became final in August. Even though the two were separated for two years, their split is still raw and painful for Uma.
