Uma Thurman lauds the working mom

by auditioning contributor Laura:

Like many women, Uma Thurman often feels torn between her family and career. "I’ve learned that every working mom is a superwoman," the 36-year-old actress tells Parade magazine in its July 16 issue. "For most of the world, it’s really a necessity. The stay-at-home mom is over not just because of women’s liberation but because of men’s liberation from wanting to be the breadwinners."

Uma, nominated for an Oscar for her role in 1994’s Pulp Fiction, filed for divorce from Ethan Hawke in 2004 after six years of marriage. They have two children, Maya, 8, and Levon, 4. "I have a great career and two healthy, beautiful, smart and funny children," she tells the magazine. "We’re an incredibly tight-knit threesome, and we have so much fun together." The actress, who says she’s "just another American woman who was in an unfulfilled marriage that fell apart," refuses to throw any dishy darts at the 35-year-old Hawke. "I cannot participate in anything critical about my children’s father," she says.
