What Challenges Uma Thurman?

Originally posted 02/15/2005 06:00AM

Uma Thurman's life seems glamorous – movie premieres (such as for Be Cool, her film with John Travolta, opening March 4), fabulous clothes, jet-setting vacations. But really, she's another single working mom trying to balance career and kids. "It's really, really hard," she says. "Actually, my ex-husband (Ethan Hawke) said to me the other day that I clearly was someone who wanted to be a full-time mother, and still wanted to be an actress, and that I kept insisting I could do it, but I couldn't. I try to give all of myself." And if a job's not in her hometown, fuhgeddaboutit. "Whatever parts I may have played around the world, I don't even know what they were, because New York City was the only location that I was going to work in this year. And I don't know how long I can do that – it's a very difficult balance," she says. "I don't want to quit, I love what I do. It's just something I'm fighting for, to try to find a way to keep my foot in the business satisfactorily and still be creative and stimulated, and take care of my children."
