Uma Thurman - Uma Thurman: 'Being an older mother is easier'

Uma Thurman is finding motherhood easier now that she is older.

The 42-year-old actress - who already has daughter Maya, 14, and son Levon, 10, from her previous marriage to Ethan Hawke - gave birth to daughter Luna in July and feels more confident this time.

She said: ''The question of balance has always been kind of a funny one to me because I don't think there is any balance. I feel like I've never done enough. I do think I'm pretty good at home, but trying to balance my energies outside the home? It's a challenge; there's so much more I want to do and can do.''

''When I was younger and became a mother, I didn't think I could do anything else; I was completely overwhelmed. I felt guilty and afraid about working, guilty and afraid about not working. It's very overwhelming for a younger person, which is why it's awesome to get to have another baby when you're grown up.''

Uma - who is dating Arpad Busson, 49 - is excited about getting back to work but is trying to ease herself into it gently.

She said: ''Because I just had a baby this year, I haven't quite gotten up and running yet, but I did a role in a movie called 'Playing for Keeps', which is a comedy. I just had a really fun time. I also went over to Germany and did a big scene, which is a monologue, with Lars von Trier for his film 'Nymphomaniac'. I'm not the nymphomaniac, but it's going to be totally scandalous.

''I've been on maternity leave for a while, so it's all about the future. I'm reading scripts, and I changed my agents--I'm hitting refresh in my career.''
