Uma Karuna Thurman (born April 29, 1970) is an American actress and model. She has performed in leading roles in a variety of films, ranging from romantic comedies and dramas to science fiction and action movies. Following early roles in films such as Dangerous Liaisons (1988), she rose to international prominence in 1994 following her role in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction for which she was nominated for an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award and a Golden Globe Award. She starred in several more films throughout the 1990s such as The Truth About Cats & Dogs, Batman & Robin, Gattaca and Les Misérables. She won a Golden Globe Award for the miniseries Hysterical Blindness (2002). Her career was revitalized when she reunited with director Quentin Tarantino to play the central role in two Kill Bill films (2003/2004) which brought her an additional two Golden Globe Award nominations and a BAFTA Award nomination.

Uma Thurman was looking gorgeous as she posed in a red dress for her latest photo shoot. The 43-year-old beauty has been named the star of the Campari Calendar for 2014, and we can see why. The 15th edition no less, is entitled ‘Worldwide Celebrations!’.

Campari calls the Calendar ‘a window on the world’ spanning every continent, with Uma and her trusty glass of Campari along for the ride in every shot.

The 2014 Calendar is a stunning piece of artwork which perfectly conveys the positive energy and pleasure which Campari lovers around the world can enjoy through our worldwide celebration,’ Uma declared. ‘The Calendar photographer, Koto Bolofo, has been fantastic to work with and inspired me throughout the shoot. ‘There is nothing more enjoyable than a celebration and I feel confident that people around the world will enjoy the worldwide celebration which the Campari Calendar provides.

If every picture said a thousand words then it is surely this gorgeous portfolio of pix of Uma Thurman says volumes about her beauty and presence. The star travelled to Milan to launch the calendar on, what else, the red carpet wearing another must-have red dress.

 

But even apart from Campari is Uma a very impressive personality, whose modern femininity never lacks style.

Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy in “Batman and Robin” (1997)

People can be like poison ivy. Sure everything is innocuous at first. Maybe, we think, “Great, they’re raspberries!” Raspberries have leaves-of-three. And raspberries are delicious! Mmm. We interact with them, and after some searching, we don’t seem to find the fruit we thought we would. Nevertheless, no ill comes of it. It’s more of a enigma than anything. Hardy plants too. Look at them take off! Then one day, it strikes us, these leaves-of-three people actually cause irritation, and a distracting burning itch…that spreads. You may try to make it work. You may try to just “semi-interact” with them, but a rash is always the result. Usually, it’s the kind of rash that gets a bit worse with each encounter. Finally, you realize, “Leaves-of-three, let them be.” They are, in fact, poisonous to you and many others…even though they may seem like wonderful raspberries at first. Where they are comes annoyance, pain, or vexation. They are clever look-alikes. Nothing can make them raspberries, and you have to stop acting as if there is a way that a wholesale change into “something else” is possible. You realize you can cancel their debt of inflicting you, but you don’t want to be touched by them, or get too close anymore. It’s just not worth it.
