The director has often referred to Thurman as his “muse” and they looked very happy as they hit the red carpet during Cannes International Film Festival last week, with reports suggesting they even shared a villa together in the South Of France.
An insider revealed, “They had a thing and got together again recently. He’s loved her for years.”
Uma and Quentin held hands as they walked the red carpet at the “Clouds Of Sils Maria” premiere on May 23 and as they attended the closing ceremony and A “Fistful Of Dollars” screening the following day.
Another source said, “There has always been an attraction. She has indulged from time to time, and that’s how their relationship has always worked.”
The 44-year-old mother-of-three says she believes it’s their differences that unite them and make their partnership work.
She said of Tarantino, “I think we’re really different people actually, but that’s what’s fun about talking to each other. We have very different perspectives. He’s a very extroverted, public person. I’m a very introverted person. We’re just very different characters.”
The 51-year-old director has reportedly always had feelings for Uma, but they just both happened to be single at the same time.
Thurman was married to actor Ethan Hawke in 1998, before separating in 2003 and eventually divorcing in August 2005. The couple have two children together – daughter Maya, 15, and son Levon, 12.
The actress was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Arpad ‘Arki’ Busson, with whom she has a 22-month-old daughter, Rosalind. They got together in 2007 and became engaged in July 2008. They called off their engagement in 2009 but reconciled shortly after, before splitting for good just last month.
Uma was leaning on Quentin after her split from Arki and their friendship became romantic.
Quentin has dated the likes of Mira Sorvino, Kathy Griffin, Sofia Coppola and Julie Dreyfus over the years and was most recently linked to costume designer Courtney Hoffman, but has never married.
Tarantino once said, “I’m not saying that I’ll never get married or have a kid before I’m 60, but I’ve made a choice, so far, to go on this road alone. Because this is my time to make movies.”
We hope these two will end up together. That would be awesome!
