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
"I think the Dalai Lama would laugh his head off if he saw Kill Bill. "
