"When asked if I consider myself Buddhist, the answer is, Not really. But it's more my religion than any other because I was brought up with it in an intellectual and spiritual environment. I don't practice or preach it, however."—Uma Thurman
The Savvy Survivor: Uma Thurman in Kill Bill The Beauty Mark: Despite having a to-do list that includes killing off all her former assassin associates, Thurman's The Bride takes the time to get a haircut in volume II of this epic sword-fighting series. When Bill is finally in her sights, she goes from tousled bedhead to sleek lob with blunt bangs.
The Bride: The ultimate archetype of every rape-revenge horror film, mixed with the fighting spirit of martial arts movies & the laconic amorality of spaghetti westerns. The ultimate in female revenge. (Kill Bill Vol. 1, 2003, Quentin Tarantino. Portrayed by Uma Thurman).
