Uma Thurman, who is best known for her action role in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, said the movie has had a positive impact on women.
The 47-year-old actor played Beatrix Kiddo, aka The Bride, in the movies, who seeks revenge for the murder of her friends and her fiance.
Thurman said women come up to her all the time and tell her how the movie helped them in their lives, reported Variety.
“Women would come up to me and they would say that somehow or other – they’d share a little bit — that the film helped them in their lives, whether they were feeling oppressed or struggling or had a bad boyfriend or felt badly about themselves,” she said. “... that the film released in them some survival energy that was helpful, and that is probably one of the most gratifying things that I have ever experienced in response to a piece of art.”
Talking about the reaction of her father, who was ordained as a Buddhist monk, to the violent role she played in Kill Bill, Thurman said, “I don’t remember. Being a father of an actor is probably a challenge. You know, it’s strange.”
Asked to name which of her films her three children liked best, Thurman was interrupted by her son, Roan Thurman-Hawke, who shouted “Pulp Fiction”.
