KILL BILL star Uma Thurman has been dropped by cosmetics giant LANCOME - who have not renewed her $14.4 million (GBP9 million) contract after just two years.

The leggy actress, who has just split from husband of five years ETHAN HAWKE, has refused to comment on the matter other than to say, "It's all over. I'm finished working for Lancome."

Previously, the make-up company sacked Italian actress Isabella Rossellini after declaring her to be too old for their promotions.
