Uma: Dalai Lama Would Love Kill Bill
After UMA THURMAN's Buddhist father approved her ultraviolent new movie KILL BILL, she's convinced the DALAI LAMA himself would enjoy it.
ROBERT THURMAN is America's leading Buddhist professor, and a fierce anti-violence activist - but he loves his daughter's new
role in QUENTIN TARANTINO's fourth movie.
She says, "He thought the movie was fantastic. He can distinguish between reality and fantasy. He's a smart guy.
"He's my greatest supporter. He loves me getting challenged and trying to do something good."
And Uma believes spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, a pal of her father's, would be equally entertained by it - and she's disappointed she missed the opportunity to show him the movie on his recent visit to New York.
She adds, "It's ironic. I would've loved to go see him more. He was teaching here, but I was promoting Kill Bill, my crazy, violent movie! It cut into my Dalai Lama time, but I did actually manage to see him in Central Park, which was really nice.
"I think the Dalai Lama would laugh his head off if he saw Kill Bill. "09/10/2003 21:23
