Most probably recognize Uma Thurman for her extensive movie career, with groundbreaking roles in films like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill Volume’s 1 and 2, but many don’t realize that this unique beauty was actually a successful model before her cinematic beginning.
At the age of 15, Thurman started out as a fashion model, and signed with the agency Click Models. Her early credits included Glamour and British Vogue for their December 1985 and May 1986 covers.
The actress made her movie debut in 1988, appearing in four films that year. Her first two were the high school comedy Johnny Be Good and teen thriller Kiss Daddy Goodnight. She had a small role in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, but the most acclaimed of these first four films was the Oscar-winning drama Dangerous Liaisons.
We all know and love Uma Thurman for the talented actress that she’s become but before Thurman’s big break in Hollywood; before her Academy and BAFTA Award nominations, and Golden Globe win, this rising star was a young model making her mark in the world of fashion.
