She's the mysterious blonde with the unforgettable name: Uma Thurman. You've probably seen her in magazines as the striking new face of Louis Vuitton, but it's her work on the big screen that has made Uma one of Hollywood's golden girls. She was just 18 years old when she got her big break in Dangerous Liaisons. A few years later, she was dancing her way to an Oscar® nod in Pulp Fiction.
It was the futuristic flick Gattaca that changed Uma's future. She married her leading man, Ethan Hawke, and had two children, Maya, now seven, and Levon, three and a half. As a working mother, Uma kicked some serious butt in the critically acclaimed Kill Bill movies—but by the time the rigorous filming was over, so was her marriage. The couple's painful breakup catapulted her to the center of a tabloid nightmare.
