Mom-to-be will star as Robert Pattinson’s love interest in ‘Bel Ami.’
By Kara Warner
Uma Thurman is a mama-to-be once again. According to E! Online, the “Kill Bill” and “Bel Ami” actress and her financier beau Arpad Busson will welcome a new bundle of joy into the world later this year.
The new addition to Thurman’s family will join her children Maya, 13, and Levon, 10, with whom she shares custody with ex-husband Ethan Hawke. Hawke has expanded his family in recent years as well. After marrying his and Thurman’s onetime nanny Ryan Shawhughes in 2008, the happy couple has welcomed two children of their own: Clementine, 3, and Indiana, 6 months.
Although Thurman will likely begin preparations for her new arrival, fans will get to see more of the 41-year-old beauty in Robert Pattinson’s next film, “Bel Ami,” which opens in March. Thurman has been fortunate to have co-starred with a slew of handsome younger men in her films over the years, which she said she has not taken for granted: “I have been cast opposite a lot of really handsome, charming young men,” she told MTV News, laughing, last April. “It’s nice work when you can get it.
“I’ve also worked with some of the world’s most wonderful esteemed older men throughout my career, who were wonderful people to learn from and be with. I think the exploration of people relating in different generations is something that is really current,” she continued. “And it’s fun. It’s wonderful to have. I can’t just speak about it romantically, but it’s wonderful to know people at all different stages of life.”
Speaking of her work with her very popular “Bel Ami” co-star and international heartthrob, Thurman has had nothing but high praise for Pattinson: “Robert Pattinson is, I think, going to be a really serious actor,” she shared. “I think he’s incredibly concrete in his presence on the set and obviously is very handsome. [He] is a very nice person, and he’s sensitive. He’s present. … He’s a really good actor.”
