Actress Uma Thurman says being the father of an actress can be a challenge. She is best known for Quentin Tarantino movies ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘Kill Bill’. During an onstage interview at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival on July 2, she talked about the reaction of her father, who was a Buddhist monk, to the violent role she played in ‘Kill Bill’ and more, reports said.
Thurman said, “I don’t remember. Being a father of an actress is probably a challenge…. You know, it’s strange.”
She also spoke of the positive impact ‘Kill Bill’ has had on women.
“Women would come up to me and they would say that somehow or the other – they’d share a little bit – that that film helped them in their lives, whether they were feeling oppressed or struggling or had a bad boyfriend or felt badly about themselves, that that 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,” she said.
Asked to name which of her films her children liked best, Thurman was interrupted by her son, Roan Thurman-Hawke, sitting in the balcony of the theatre, who shouted ‘Pulp Fiction’.
