Uma Thurman has said that the sexual harassment scandals that have consumed Hollywood in recent weeks have left her 'too angry' to respond.
Uma Thurman has been tapped to preside over this year’s Cannes Un Certain Regard jury, the festival announced Friday. The actress was a member of the main competition jury fronted by Robert De Niro in 2011. “In a career spanning more than 20 years, the American actress has made some daring choices and enjoyed taking risks… Whether playing crazy, sexy or dominant, the woman whose namesake is the Hindu goddess of beauty and light has definitely entered the pantheon of movie greats, with several of her scenes attaining cult status,” the festival said in a statement.

Instead of featuring top models in lingerie, as in many of the previous 50 editions, the famed photographer shot Serena Williams, Tavi Gevinson, Yoko Ono, and other “strong but natural women who have achieved something.” The tire company called it a “radical and inspirational departure from previous years” — and for 2017, the pinups of calendars past are still sitting on the sidelines. Released on Tuesday, the new edition of “The Cal” stars 14 famous actresses, including Nicole Kidman, Lupita Nyong’o, Penélope Cruz, Jessica Chastain, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore, Robin Wright, Rooney Mara, Léa Seydoux, Zhang Ziyi, and Charlotte Rampling.

On Wednesday afternoon, FIT’s Couture Council gathered for its annual luncheon, and for the first time in 10 years, the guest of honor and recipient of the Artistry in Fashion Award was a shoe designer. “Manolo is the first shoe designer to become a superstar,” noted FIT’s president Valerie Steele, while presenter Uma Thurman confided to the crowd that Blahnik was, “the only man who has been with me every step of the way.
When Uma Thurman's name popped up in my inbox several times today I got excited that maybe she was the face of new beauty campaign. Instead, what I saw were emails from plastic surgeons, desperate to either slam the alleged cosmetic procedures she may or may not have had, or to discuss how other women can achieve a youthful look that looks more natural. No matter which side of the argument you fall on, the whole discourse bums me out.
