Uma Thurman is an American film actress with an eclectic filmography and a net worth of $45 million. Thurman's childhood was decidedly bohemian: she was raised primarily in Amherst, Massachusetts, and Woodstock, New York, though she spent time in India as a child and moved to New York City to pursue acting at the age of fifteen. Famous for her ethereal looks, she is best known for her collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino, who called her "up there with Garbo and Dietrich in goddess territory."
She first appeared in Tarantino's 1994 film Pulp Fiction, which grossed $213 million worldwide and earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, and later in both segments of Tarantino's two-part martial-arts epic Kill Bill. Other box-office successes include the costume drama Dangerous Liaisons, the science-fiction film Gattaca, the romantic comedy The Truth About Cats and Dogs, and the mafia comedies Get Shorty and Be Cool. Thurman married her State of Grace co-star, Gary Oldman, in 1990, at the age of twenty; the couple later divorced, and she married Gattaca co-star Ethan Hawke in 1998. The couple had two children, Maya Ray and Levon Roan, before divorcing in 2004. Thurman now lives in New York City with her children.
