Successfully showed the world that she is indeed more than just a sexy and beautiful woman, Uma Karuna Thurman has risen to be one of the celebrated actresses who is respected also adored because of her sincere devotion to good work.

Although her eccentric parents showed no encouragement to support her desire, she persistently polished her skills through acting classes while took part in many school plays.
