Uma Thurman is trending. This isn’t because Kill Bill 3 is coming out, it’s because people were picking apart Uma Thurman’s “shockingly different” face and playing “plastic surgery police.”
The buzz began yesterday when photos were taken of Thurman at the premiere for her new miniseries,The Slap. Articles immediately popped up speculating on her face.
Don’t we have anything better to do than to point out that like us, stars age? This is all too familiar, with the Renée Zellweger debacle just a few months behind us. It seems apparent that this is going to be a trend, attacking the appearances of female celebrities in their 40’s and beyond. An all too common occurrence in Hollywood. For some people, this is their livelihood. Can you imagine?
Uma’s makeup artist for years, Troy Surratt told Refinery 29 that they went for a look that was more “”more editorial than it was celebrity,” keeping the eyebrows and lips strong, with barely any eye makeup. It’s definitely a different look for Uma, but “unrecognizable” as some publications have said? Not really.
I’m a big fan of Uma Thurman, always have been (see above). And if Uma Thurman has had work done, who cares? Does it take away from her Academy Award, her Golden Globe, and all her other awards? Does it take away from all the success she’s had? Does it make any of her movies any less great?
No, of course it doesn’t. It’s a silly thing to focus on and it just reinforces the fact that Hollywood just won’t let women age! Not only do we start to typecast women as non-sexual and non-appealing , but we pick them apart. With plastic surgery in Hollywood, it’s damned if you do damned if you don’t. You do you, Uma.
