    This is what Mia Wallace from “Pulp Fiction” looks like today


    Uma Thurman celebrated her breakthrough in 1994 as Mia Wallace in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”. What does the actress look like almost 30 years later?

    Black pageboy cut, red lipstick, wicked look: With this striking look, Mia Wallace became the figurehead of the US gangster film “Pulp Fiction”. The film poster in which Mia is lying on the bed smoking is still hanging in numerous cinemas almost 30 years later.

    Uma Thurman made a name for herself as an actress in 1994 with her role as the self-confident gangster bride Mia Wallace. Director Quentin Tarantino portrayed her as a brash, seductive and clever woman. Her twist dance with John Travolta, who plays contract killer Vincent Vega in the film, is still legendary today. Thurman is still regularly in front of the camera, but her look has changed a bit.

    Uma Thurman wasn’t supposed to be Mia Wallace

    Uma Thurman was born on April 29, 1970 in Boston, Massachusetts. Just like her mother, she began her professional career as a model until she was finally discovered as an actress. She finally achieved international fame in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” – although she was not originally intended for the role of Mia Wallace. The producers actually wanted to cast Holly Hunter or Jennifer Aniston as the main character.

    In the years that followed, Uma Thurman focused on diversity when selecting her films and did not leave out any genre. In the superhero film “Batman & Robin” (1997) she was the female villain “Poison Ivy”, in the romantic comedy “Couch Gehisper” (2005) she met Meryl Streep as a therapist and in “Accidentally Married” (2008) she was even a relationship advisor.

    More than just Mia Wallace

    Not only has Uma Thurman repeatedly shown new facets of herself in her film roles, the now 53-year-old has also changed her appearance again and again. Sometimes she wore her blonde hair in a wavy bob, sometimes she impressed with a long wavy mane. The yellow body suit that Thurman wore in “Kill Bill” is remembered as a particularly striking look: in Quentin Tarantino’s film saga, she played the professional killer “Black Mamba”, who, after a massacre at her wedding, killed old rivals and her ex -Boss takes revenge.

    The violence in Uma Thurman’s successful films is in stark contrast to her family background. She owes her name to a Hindu goddess. Her father, Robert Thurman, is a well-known Buddhism professor. The family spent some time in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, where the Dalai Lama also visited them. Thurman’s mother Nena von Schlebrügge is of German-Swedish origin and made a career as a top model in New York in the late 1950s before turning to spiritual tasks.

    On Instagram, Uma Thurman gives her 1.4 million followers the opportunity to take a look behind the film camera. She not only posts glamorous photos of red carpet appearances or photo shoots, but also shows her private side. Whether in a casual leisure look behind the scenes on a film set, without make-up and with glasses on a trip with her son or in a sports outfit on a hike in the forest – the American proves again and again how versatile she is.

    Uma Thurman and her turbulent love life

    There has also been a lot of movement in Uma Thurman’s love life recently. She was married to actor Gary Oldman from 1990 to 1992. In May 1998 she married actor Ethan Hawke: with him she has a daughter and a son. But this marriage didn’t last either: the film couple divorced in 2004.

    In July 2012, Thurman and her then partner Arpad Busson became parents to a daughter, but the two separated in spring 2014. There were subsequent rumors that Thurman was in a relationship with her long-time friend and supporter Quentin Tarantino, but she denied this.
