Uma Thurman Says Turning Down LORD OF THE RINGS Was a Mistake
Uma Thurman says turning down Lord of the Rings was the "worst decision she ever made." The actress appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and talked about why she turned down the role of Eowyn:
"It was a very long time ago, and I do consider it one of the worst decisions I ever made. I had just had my first child and, I dunno, I was a little house bound. It's really definitely a regret"
Can't blame Uma for putting family first. The role of Eowyn then went to Miranda Otto, who has had a mildly successful career since. If Uma Thurman had taken the role, there's a good chance she would not have been available for Kill Bill, and that's a timeline I don't want to experience. I think we can all agree we would rather have Kill Bill than Uma in LOTR, right? Check out the clip and the rest of her interview below.
