Why Is Uma Thurman Trying to Learn Swedish?

Actress Uma Thurman stars in the new NBC family drama, The Slap but the 44-year-old actress enjoys much more peace at home. She admitted she’s constantly impressed by her son’s smarts, loves making home-cooked meals and a few other things when she chatted with PEOPLE this week about “one last thing”

Last thing I misplaced
Somewhere there are 8,000 tubes of lipstick that once belonged to me. I don’t use keys, so that doesn’t really apply. And very rarely I misplace my sense of humor, but usually not.

Last activity I did with my kids
I’ve been losing at the challenge of trying to learn Swedish on the Duolingo app with my son [Levon, 13]. It’s like the baby steps of language that you put on your phone. He’s way ahead of me; it’s a really cool thing.

Last sunrise I watched
I think I saw the sunrise before Christmas when I was going to work early one day. It was over the Brooklyn Bridge and just gorgeous.

Last home-cooked meal
It was chicken soup. Well, that’s unless you want to count this bagel with tuna fish that I just made 10 minutes ago.
