The actress Uma Thurman has revealed that wearing the iconic yellow one-piece in Kill Bill caused her anxiety. ‘Anyone who has just had a baby is not going to want to wear a skintight onesie,’ the actress admitted after taking on the role of assassin The Bride in Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 movie.
Even though wearing the figure-hugging ensemble initially made her nervous, the actress said the costume team did ‘a lot of brilliant work’ in order to make her feel comfortable. Uma Hawke gave birth to her son Levon in January 2002, just months before filming on Kill Bill began.
According to Uma Thurman, anyone who has just given birth will not want to wear a skintight onesie: wearing the iconic skintight yellow one-piece in Kill Bill (pictured in 2003) gave her ‘anxiety’.
On Friday’s episode of The Graham Norton Show, she said: “I really did not want to wear the yellow tracksuit.” She added: “I had just had my son, so wearing a skintight onesie would be extremely stressful for me.”
To recreate Bruce Lee’s look while covering my belly, there was a lot of training, hard work, and brilliant costume work. ’ Besides her relationship with Hawke, the actress is also the mother of two daughters, Maya, 23, and Luna, nine, with her ex-partner Arpad Busson.
The iconic ensemble, which adorned all of the promotional materials for Kill Bill, was reportedly described by Uma as looking like a ‘banana popsicle’. In 2003, not long after giving birth to her son Levon Roan, 20, the actress took on the role of assassin The Bride in Quentin Tarantino’s movie.
In December 2001, Uma Hawke was pregnant with her first child, Levon. Tarantino told the actress he was trying to make her look like a clown when he proposed wearing the outfit. According to Tarantino, Uma disapproved of the yellow tracksuit. I disliked it. Couldn’t understand.
My first thought was that she looked like a Popsicle – a banana Popsicle. “She wasn’t interested in it.”. As a matter of fact, she had no knowledge of Bruce Lee. Finally, I had to show her Game of Death.
It sort of kind of made sense to her. Now, since then, it has become an icon. She probably does not recall what happened, but she said, “You’re trying to make me look like a clown! ”.
According to Uma, a third film in the blockbuster martial arts franchise is unlikely. Screen star (pictured in 2020) says the costume team did a great deal of work to make her feel comfortable, despite her initial reservations.
On Friday’s episode of The Graham Norton Show via video link from New York, she admitted: “I really didn’t want to wear the yellow tracksuit.” She also starred in the sequel Kill Bill: Volume 2, but she does not believe the legendary filmmaker would be interested in revisiting the story.
In response to a question regarding the likelihood of a third Kill Bill film in 2020, she replied: “I do not think so.” “I think it has already been made and played, and Quentin is already thinking about the next project.”
Although Tarantino has hinted at making another film, he has previously revealed that he and Uma had discussed the possibility of working together on another project.
During a recent interview with the filmmaker, he stated: “Uma and I spoke about it recently, bluntly. I have given it some further consideration. Last week, we discussed it in detail. I believe if any of my movies were to spring from my previous ones, it would be a third installment of Kill Bill.
On Friday, 10.35pm, BBC One will broadcast The Graham Norton Show, which will also be available on BBC iPlayer. “Didn’t get it”: The actress was enraged by Tarantino’s suggestion that she wear the outfit. She referred to him as trying to make her look “like a clown.”
