Uma Thurman

Uma Thurman was born in 1970 in a curious family. The father of the actress, Robert Thurman, was the first American to be tonsured to become a Buddhist monk by the Dalai Lama himself. Her mother, Nena Thurman, maiden name von Schlebrugge, is a well-known Swedish model, a hippie, and also the ex-wife of the legendary researcher of psychedelic drugs Timothy Leary. Uma was named after a Hindu goddess who “gave bliss”.

Today, Uma Thurman’s mother lives a respectable life of a well-known psychotherapist, and her father “returned” the monk’s vows, but he did not refuse his convictions and teaches his own course on Indo-Tibetan Buddhism as a professor at Columbia University.
