Uma Thurman was bornon 29 April 1970 in Boston, American. Uma Karuna Thurman is an American actress who rose to fame with her portrayal of Mia Wallace in the dark comedy movie ‘Pulp Fiction’ which made the talented actress one of Hollywood’s A-list stars. She is a well respected actress who does not think twice before shedding her glamorous image and appearing in a totally deglamourized role as she did in the ‘Kill Bill’ movies. She was born into a family known for its unconventional ways of life and was given a Hindu name and a Buddhist upbringing. Growing up, the lanky girl was often made fun of because of her angular frame and large feet. Even though today she is famous for her exotic beauty, there was a time when as a teenager she was highly insecure of herself and her body. She found solace in acting and actively participated in dramatics in high school. Believing that she was meant to be an actress, she quit school at 15 to pursue an acting career. Initially she had to earn her livelihood by doing dishes and modeling though she was soon able to find small roles in films. She got her big breakthrough with the movie ‘Pulp Fiction’ and was even more critically acclaimed for her role in the ‘Kill Bill’ films.
