Uma Thurman says when you become a mom, you have to figure out how to have time for yourself and balance that with taking care of your family. The Motherhood actress, who plays internet blogger and mother-of-two Eliza Welch in the independent comedy, found it easy to play the role because she understands how hard it can be to define yourself once you become a parent.
She told OK! magazine: “Well, her circumstances are different, but her concerns are the same as mine. Trying to be true to yourself as an individual and as a woman and be a loving mother and grow and find yourself, that’s the kind of thing we all deal with. I thought that was really universal.”

The 39-year-old actress has two children, Maya, 11, and Levon, 7, from her first marriage to actor Ethan Hawke, who she divorced in 2004. Although she struggled to juggle motherhood and her career at first, Uma insists raising a family has allowed her to grow as a person. She explained: “The most rewarding thing about motherhood is the incredible opportunity to love and expand your heart, and to learn, and to discover yourself in many different ways.”
Meanwhile, Uma has confirmed she has met with Quentin Tarantino about starring in a third Kill Bill film. The actress, who played Beatrix Kiddo, also known as The Bride, in the two Kill Bill movies, said: "We did chat. He has not yet finished the script. I don't even really know if he's really started it, although I got a taste of some of his ideas and they are really good. He has started to share with me what he was thinking, and it's awesome."
