• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Uma thurman has buddhist regrets main 530.jpg

American actress, born April 29, 1970, best known for starring in Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Dangerous Liaisons, Gattaca, The Truth About Cats and Dogs, and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, where she plays Venus. Yes, that Venus. She also played Poison Ivy and Emma Peel.

Known for being Quentin Tarantino's (platonic) muse.

Uma Thurman provides examples of the following tropes:
  • Action Girl: A couple of her roles later on in her career are good examples.
  • Beautiful All Along: As a teen, Thurman was very insecure of her height and awkward physique, which were subject to teasing from peers and even adults. Eventually in the height of her acting career, she would model for famous designer clothing lines and cosmetic brands.
  • Blue Eyes
  • Dyeing for Your Art: From the usual changing color of her hair, using her own voice for musical roles (uncommon for non-singing actresses), to the extremes such as doing full nude scenes, learning martial arts for months, and doing her own stunts.
  • Foot Focus: Being Quentin Tarantino's muse, she's had a few movie scenes focusing entirely on her feet.
  • Granola Girl: Raised a Buddhist in Amherst and Woodstock.
  • Hair of Gold
  • One Uma Limit: Can you think of anyone else named Uma?
  • Statuesque Stunner: She was already six feet tall in grade school!
  • Unkempt Beauty: Sometimes.
