Uma Thurman is an actress of unconventional appearance, as she has been called since childhood. She is often included in lists of the ugliest actresses or actresses of non-trivial and attractive beauty. Right now, he’s okay with that fact, but it wasn’t always like that.
In many photographs, especially in his youth, Thurman looks quite reserved. In an interview, the actress admitted that when she was 10, she was told she had an ugly smile. He developed complexes that lasted his whole life and literally formed the reflex of trying not to smile broadly, showing his teeth. It was one more point in the box of the complexity of a girl, then a girl and a woman, who even without outrageous comments realized that her appearance was far from the standard of the beauty.
“I’m fat, I have a big nose, big lips and big eyes that seem glued to my head. I am also very tall and have a strange name (Uma Karuna Thurman). Growing up, it was very painful when people told me I was ugly. Guys always like other girls. Then my face got big enough to accommodate my big nose, and my cheekbones changed. Experience has taught me not to worry. I accepted the fact that I wasn’t beautiful and just stopped thinking about it. When people suddenly start saying I’m beautiful, I have no reason to believe it.
As a teenager, Thurman never expected producers to line up to cast her in a movie. But Uma quickly got lucky in the movie – her unusual beauty was immediately noticed and appreciated in Hollywood. The young actress started acting at the age of 17 and soon made her acting debut with the lead role in the thriller Kiss Daddy Goodnight.
The following year, 18-year-old Thurman starred in Stephen Frears’ Dangerous Liaisons, where his castmates included John Malkovich, Glenn Close, Michelle Pfeiffer and Keanu Reeves. The film won four Oscars and became famous until recently, when no one knew of a young actress with a strange name and appearance. And in 1994, Quentin Tarantino directed the film Pulp Fiction, with which Uma Thurman entered the history of modern cinema with a black wig.
Thurman admits she likes getting old. He vehemently denies having performed plastic surgery, which he is suspected of having done. In fact, on the same day the actress reportedly had blepharoplasty, she simply put on different makeup to make her weird face start to look different.
In April last year, Uma turned 50. She says she accepts her age and doesn’t try to look younger than most of her peers. “We all change with age. It’s just that the beauty of maturity is different from the beauty of youth. You can look good as a beautiful mature woman.
