“My relationship with my present wife [his children's former nanny, Ryan Shawhughes] is thrilling to me and I’m committed to it. But neither she nor I know what shape the future will come in. Sexual fidelity can’t be the whole thing you hang your relationship on. If you really love somebody you want them to grow, but you don’t get to define how that happens. They do. People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity. ‘He’s cheated so he’s bad, she’s cheated so she’s bad,’ as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous. To act all indignant, that your world has been rocked because your lover wasn’t faithful to you, is a little bit like acting rocked that your hair went grey. Human beings are sexual beings.”

Ethan Hawke is as well known for all those “Before Sunrise” movies as he is for being the guy who let Uma Thurman get away. But as he broadly hints at the magazine Mr. Porter, he didn’t want to be monogamous. That doesn’t make any cheating that may have occurred okay, of course, but I commend him, actually, for being this honest about monogamy and fidelity given how harshly our culture judges nontraditional relationships. (Actress Maria Bello has some similar thoughts, which she wrote about this weekend in the New York Times Modern Love column.) It sounds like 42-year-old Hawke has a more clear-eyed view of what kind of relationship he wants with his new wife. He’s kidding himself, though, if he thinks that being “indignant” about cheating is abnormal.  Non-monogamy isn’t about cheating at all. [Mr. Porter via US Weekly] [Image via Getty]

“I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.”

What could be more iconic than Uma Thurman’s turn as Mia Wallace in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”? The wife of mob kingpin Marsellus Wallace is instantly recognizable in the film’s famous promotional image which shows her laying lackadaisical on a bed, cigarette in one hand and pistol in the other. Beyond that, she plays a pivotal part in the film, and since its release there’s been mass imitation of the character’s darkly simple style. In the 17 years since “Pulp Fiction” first showed, nobody’s done the classic look better than the dance-crazed, drug-fueled Mrs. Mia Wallace. Her outfits from the movie are easily recreated, but channeling her attitude is another thing entirely. You’re on your own for that one. How to get everything else, after the jump! Keep reading »

Uma Thurman And Rachel Bilson In Awkward New Commercials

Stars do commercials all the time. But something makes me just a touch sad when a star whose light bulb has dimmed—that’s the nice way of saying that they haven’t booked a big role in a bit—does a commercial. Case in point, this new Uma Thurman ad for Schweppes. I get that she’s trying to go over-the-top in the overacting department, but something about her performance in this is just creepy and weird. Especially, the way she awkwardly pours the soda into her mouth so as not to mess up her lipstick. I think she and director David LaChapelle can do better.

The Rachel Bilson ad for Magnum ice cream, after the jump, is a little better. Keep reading »

Quotable: Courtney Love Is In “Lurve” With Uma’s Ex

“I’m in lurve. It’s nice. Scary. I’m a great catch and he can be a bad boy but he loves me. He is the sweetest thing and he actually totally does respect me. His manners are impeccable but he is funny too. He has properties everywhere and has given me the key to his apartment, but what is better than living in his hotel?”

– Courtney Love on dating Uma Thurman’s ex, hotelier Andre Balazs. How on earth do you go from Uma to Courtney? I mean, I love the woman, but she is cray-cray, while Uma is all zen. To quote one of my favorite blogs, how f**k. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Uma Thurman Graces The Cover Of W Magazine With Her Magnificence

Statuesque actress Uma Thurman, 39, does the cover of W magazine and sits for a feature profile inside. We meet her two children with ex-husband Ethan Hawke (Levon, 7, and Maya, 11), tour her Greenwich Village townhouse, and hear about her fiancé, financier Arpad “Arki” Busson. Because no actress would talk to the media without something to promote, she’s hawking her upcoming movie, “Motherhood,” in which she plays a … mommy blogger? “Kill Bill” it is not. She refuses to trash-talk Hawke, doesn’t have a wedding date set yet, and rocks an engagement ring that could put your eye out. After the jump, a few images from the Steven Klein-shot layout. [W] Keep reading »
