Uma Thurman grew up in a bohemian household. She was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, and raised in Woodstock, New York, though she spent time as a child in India before relocating to New York City at the age of fifteen to pursue acting. Her youth was said to have been awkward and reclusive, but she channeled that into her work, first receiving known for her performance in a school production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.
Uma Thurman Career
Thurman’s first job in the entertainment industry was as a model, but talent scouts observed her onstage in The Crucible. In the mid-80s, she was featured in Glamour and Vogue, but she rapidly moved into acting. She made her feature film debut in Kiss Daddy Goodnight in 1987. The following year, in 1988, she acted in three films: Johnny Be Good, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and Dangerous Liaisons, which was her big break.
Thurman worked in films for several years after that, until she met the filmmaker who would help her complete her transformation into a full-fledged movie star: Quentin Tarantino. She was initially featured in Tarantino’s 1994 picture Pulp Fiction, which won her an Academy Award nod for Best Supporting Actress and grossed $213 million worldwide and then in both segments of Tarantino’s two-part martial-arts epic Kill Bill.
Gattaca, the science-fiction film, The Truth About Cats and Dogs, and the criminal comedies Get Shorty and Be Cool, both based on Elmore Leonard novels, are among the other box-office triumphs. Thurman starred in a number of big-budget (and not-so-big-budget) films in the late 1990s. She starred as Poison Ivy in Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin in 1997, and as Emma Peel in the big-screen version of The Avengers the following year (not to be confused with the Marvel Comics franchise of the same name).
Kill Bill catapulted her back into starring parts in feature films in 2006. Thurman appeared in the Philip K Dick adaption Paycheck, directed by John Woo and starring Ben Affleck, in the interim between the release of Kill Bill’s various volumes. She co-starred with Luke Wilson in the romantic comedy My Super Ex-Girlfriend, and she participated in the drama The Life Before Her Eyes in 2007.

Thurman returned to television in 2012, as part of a five-episode run of the musical drama Smash, after a few more odd film parts. Thurman portrayed a movie star who, despite his lack of musical talent, aspired to film a musical, in a part that was lauded by critics at the time. Thurman collaborated with filmmaker Lars Von Trier on the first installment of Von Trier’s two-part film Nymphomaniac in 2013, which received positive reviews.
She made her NBC debut in 2015 on The Slap, an adaption of an Australian series. She then made her Broadway debut in 2017 in The Parisian Woman, which ran from November 2017 to March 2018. She also participated in the short-lived Netflix series Chambers and reconnected with Von Trier for The House That Jack Built, a serial killer drama starring Matt Dillon.
Uma Thurman’s Personal Life
Thurman married Gary Oldman, her State of Grace co-star, when she was twenty years old, in 1990; the pair later separated, and she married Gattaca co-star Ethan Hawke in 1998. Before divorcing in 2004, the couple had two children, Maya Ray and Levon Roan. Thurman and her children now reside in New York City. She also shares a daughter with Arpad Busson, a French financier with whom she had an on-again, off-again relationship from 2009 to 2014.
Uma Thurman’s name has been given to two odd things: a Fall Out Boy song and a new species of fringe-toed lizard (Uma Thurman ). In June 2018, Thurman was apparently attempting to obtain Swedish citizenship with the assistance of none other than former Swedish Justice Minister Thomas Bodström.
Uma Thurman’s Salary Highlights
Thurman received $14 million at the height of her career, ironically for the critical and commercial disaster of My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Her first seven-figure salary was rumored to be $5 million for Batman and Robin, followed by $5 million and $8 million for Gattaca and The Avengers, respectively. Thurman received $12 million for Kill Bill, compared to $300,000 for Pulp Fiction, and $12.5 million for Paycheck, as well as another $12 million for starring in the big-screen adaptation of Mel Brooks’ musical The Producers.

In 2013, Thurman paid $10 million for a 13-room apartment in New York City’s iconic River House co-op, which she bought from romance novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford. Then, in 2018, she was rumored to be planning to sell it, but it’s unclear whether she was successful.
When she was married to Ethan Hawke, she and her husband had a unique mansion in Snedens Landing, New York, dating back to 1750 and dubbed the “Ding Dong House” by locals (a nickname earned by its once-prominent bell tower, and which stuck even after the bell was removed). The couple bought the house for $4.4 million in 1998 and sold it for $4.6 million a year later.
