It’s never been easy being a working mom and Hollywood has recognized it for years. From “Baby Boom” with Diane Keaton to Sally Field’s mom in “Mrs. Doubtfire” to Julia Robert’s “Erin Brokovich,” movies have depicted the struggles of keeping a career and a family to both comedic and serious extremes. This weekend, Uma Thurman stars in an indie look at the subject matter as a blogger trying to survive a hipper than thou New York City in the new comedy “Motherhood.”
HitFix’s Katie Hasty spoke to Thurman about shooting the comedy, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and her own challenges — as a single mother no less – raising kids in Manhattan. She also asked Thurman to comment about Quentin Tarantino’s recent remarks about a third “Kill Bill.” Thurman’s career exploded in the filmmakers landmark flick “Pulp Fiction,” but hit its highest peak with the first two “Kill Bill” installments. The interview is worth watching just for her fun reaction to the question. Check it out in the embedded video on this page.
“Motherhood” opens nationwide Friday.
