Uma Thurman turns 44: See her horoscope and your star sign
29 APRIL 2014
Happy birthday Uma Thurman! The Hollywood actress is a Taurus turns 44 today and to celebrate HELLO! Online take a look at what’s in the stars for her, and you, today…
The solar eclipse in your sign, suggests passing discomfort, leading to profound relief. In theory, I ought not to say this. The discomfort only gains its intensity from the fear that it may somehow prove permanent. So if I say, don't take it seriously, you may hardly experience it at all. But I suspect that no matter how much reassurance I give you, when the unnerving event occurs, you somehow won't relate these words of mine to it. So perhaps I cannot protect you. How fortunate then that you don't really need protecting!
American actress Uma Thurman was born in the USA but spent her childhood in India, and was bought up as a Buddhist – even though she was named after a Hindu goddess.
At the age of 15 Uma began to model and landed on the cover of British Vogue in 1985 and 1986, before starring in the Oscar-nominated film Dangerous Liaisons in 1988, but it was in 1994 when Uma finally gained worldwide fame in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.
Cast opposite John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, Uma would gain her first, and only, Oscar nomination.
For several years Uma took a hiatus from work to have children before starring in the television mini-series Hysterical Blindness, for which she would win her first Golden Globe.
In 2003 Quentin cast her in Kill Bill which would relaunch her career and go on to become a cult classic. Writing the part specifically for Uma, Quentin later told Time magazine that Uma was "up there with Garbo and Dietrich in goddess territory.”
She later became the face of Lancôme and a spokesperson for fashion house Louis Vuitton.
