Uma Thurman, My Super Ex-Girlfriend

Who knew Uma Thurman was self-conscious about her standing as a kick-butt action heroine? On a comedic roll with last fall's Prime, followed at Christmas by The Producers and now her third consecutive Manhattan-set comedy, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Thurman discusses her initial reluctance to don a superhero's cape for Ivan Reitman's battle-of-the-sexes farce. In the afterglow of acquiring fans worldwide for her part in Quentin Tarantino's ultra-violent two-parter Kill Bill, Thurman also sketches the career choices she's made as a six-foot actress in an industry where many leading men just aren't (17 minutes).
