Uma Thurman

On this date in 1970, Uma Thurman was born in Massachusetts. The actress identified herself "Agnostic (Buddhism if must choose)" for a brief autobiography in Cosmopolitan (Nov. 1995), according to Who's Who in Hell by Warren Allen Smith. Her father teaches Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University and was ordained a Buddhist monk. She told Cosmopolitan she does not consider herself Buddhist, adding, "What I have learned is that I like all religions, but only parts of them." She has starred in "Dangerous Liaisons" (1988), "Pulp Fiction" (1994), "A Month by the Lake" (1995), "The Truth about Cats and Dogs" (1996), "Gattaca" (1997), "Les Miserables" (1998), "The Golden Bowl" (2000), "Kill Bill (Vol. 1)" (2003) and "Kill Bill (Vol. 2)", 2004.

“I'm not a practicing anything. I've been brought up around Buddhism and I'm very interested in it, and if I have any leaning I would lean toward Buddhist feelings. But as I have seen so many devout people, I wouldn't categorize myself as a practicing person.”
