Uma Thurman - Uma Thurman buys apartment


Uma Thurman has splashed out $10 million on a new apartment.

The 'Kill Bill' actress - who has children Maya, 14, and Levon, 10, with ex-husband Ethan Hawke, and Rosalind, 15 months, with partner Arpad Busson - has been unveiled as the mystery buyer of a 13-room home in an exclusive New York complex that was previously owned by best-selling novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford and her filmmaker husband Robert.

Uma was told on Monday (14.10.13) she had passed rigorous home co-operative board approvals and given the go-ahead to continue with the sale.

Barbara - who is looking to downsize after 18 years in the apartment - told the New York Post newspaper: ''Both Bob and I are thrilled that the sale of our apartment to Uma Thurman has been confirmed by the board. She and her three children will be a wonderful addition to the building.''

The 'Nymphomaniac' actress sold her seven-bedroom New York townhouse for $12 million last year.

The River House complex where her new apartment is located is so exclusive actresses and socialites such as Diane Keaton and Gloria Vanderbilt have been refused permission to move into the building.

Legendary star Joan Crawford reportedly commissioned a neon Pepsi sign which is visible to River House residents across the East River because she was so furious at having her application vetoed.

However, the board are said to have slightly relaxed their tough approval process.
