Fans and critics alike say actress Uma Thurman is the definition of glamour, brains, beauty and strength. 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 to actor Ethan Hawke.
Though the divorce has been extremely difficult for all involved, Uma and her children, Maya and Levon, are finding a new path for their lives. "I think the number one thing that keeps you from doing better than your best is fear," Uma says. "When you go through [the worst] ... you get through your fear a little bit, too, because it's happened. And that makes you stronger."
