Actress Uma Thurman has taken a move out of Patsy Kensit’s playbook and turned the other cheek, refusing to dish openly about her marriage to actor Ethan Hawke.
The Oscar nominee has been on the press junket route for her starring role in the new film, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, being released July 21st.
Thurman has admitted that her marriage with Ethan Hawke was a bad one, and is quoted from the July 16th edition of Parade Magazine: “I cannot participate in anything critical about my children’s father. I just need to keep peace. I think it’s fair to say that I haven’t said one mean thing, and I’m not going to start now. It’s terrible for my family.”
Uma Thurman filed for divorce from Hawke in 2004, amid rumored indiscretions that were surfacing regarding Ethan Hawke being a cheater.
Uma Thurman was also wed to actor Gary Oldman, and was attached to hotelier Andre Balasz, a relationship reported to be over.
Discussing her weariness for the spotlight on her problems, Uma Thurman also told Parade Magazine, “If I see one more headline about it, I’ll gag. I’m just another American woman who was in an unfulfilled marriage that fell apart.”
The gorgeous Kill Bill heroine is still optimistic when it comes to love.
Thurman also told Parade: “You need to want to be forgiving. The problem is that, if you want to, you’ll forgive the unforgivable. I am very perceptive about people, but then if I’m attracted to them, I’m not always looking clearly. I’m working on a decoding system – especially for men….I’m proud that I keep trying. It’s been very helpful for me to discover that I could do that. Sure, there are challenges. Sure, there were dark things. But I have a great career and two healthy, beautiful, smart and funny children. We’re an incredibly tight-knit threesome, and we have so much fun together.”
Uma Thurman will star as G-Girl in Fox’s My Super Ex-Girlfriend, co-starring Luke Wilson and directed by Ivan Reitman.
Uma Thurman plays a superhero that gets revenge on her ex-boyfriend, played by Luke Wilson. “I like that it’s a gender-bender flick where the woman has the edge. No one likes being rejected. It’s very smart and observant about human nature. That’s what makes the whole thing hilarious.” According to Thurman in the Parade interview.
