Uma Thurman was ugly as a youngster - and admits she was so tall she saw herself as a "mess".
The Kill Bill star reveals she didn't feel attractive when she was a teenager - but is pleased because it meant that she blossomed in to being "all right" as an adult.
She says, "I didn't feel awkward, I was awkward. It's such a cliche, but it's a truism that tall, gangly women who end up all right later in life are always ugly children.
"I was funny-looking. I mean, look at my hands. Imagine having these hands at 12! By the time I was 13, I was easily 5 foot 10 inches (1.78 metres). Can you imagine? That's a mess."
