I don't know about you, but I'm dying for another Kill Bill film and to have Uma Thurman step back into her role would be amazing!
The 42-year-old graces the cover of Gotham magazine’s December/January issue and the new mom opens up to designer and longtime friend Zac Posen about motherhood at this stage in her life and she dishes on the Kill Bill: Vol. 3 rumors!
On the rumors about Kill Bill: Vol. 3
“It gets announced all the time, but I don’t have a script. Quentin Tarantino knows; everybody knows; we’re hoping that we get to make the third installment. I saw Kill Bill yesterday, and I haven’t seen it in, I don’t know, seven, eight years, and I was surprised at how well it’s held up. I shouldn't be surprised, of course, but I’m so self-critical, it takes about 10 years for me to be able to like something I’ve done.”
On balancing motherhood with her career
“The question of balance has always been kind of a funny one to me because I don’t think there is any balance. I feel like I’ve never done enough. I do think I’m pretty good at home, but trying to balance my energies outside the home? It’s a challenge; there’s so much more I want to do and can do.”
“When I was younger and became a mother, I didn’t think I could do anything else; I was completely overwhelmed. I felt guilty and afraid about working, guilty and afraid about not working. It’s very overwhelming for a younger person, which is why it’s awesome to get to have another baby when you’re grown up.”
On what she has in the pipeline for the near future
“Because I just had a baby this year, I haven’t quite gotten up and running yet, but I did a role in a movie called Playing for Keeps, which is a comedy. I just had a really fun time. I also went over to Germany and did a big scene, which is a monologue, with Lars von Trier for his film Nymphomaniac. I’m not the nymphomaniac, but it’s going to be totally scandalous.”
On steering her career
“I’ve been on maternity leave for a while, so it’s all about the future. I’m reading scripts, and I changed my agents—I’m hitting refresh in my career.”
