One thing is certain—Uma says that focusing on work is helping her get back on her feet. "Work has been my best friend my whole life, so getting back to work for me is like getting back to my best friend," says Uma. "It's the greatest comfort."
Uma, who stars in a new movie called My Super Ex-Girlfriend opposite Luke Wilson, says she finds her acting to be especially rewarding. "My work relationship has given me back at least as much as I've given it," she says. "It's been the fairest relationship I've ever been in, it's been the most nurturing relationship, the most gallant relationship. It's a wonderful thing to do something you love and get to feel valuable and make it…feel like you can make some contribution that isn't worthless."
