Uma Thurman Expresses Regret Over Missing Pulp Fiction’s Cannes Triumph

by Barbara

Actress Uma Thurman has revealed her regret at not being present at the Cannes Film Festival when Quentin Tarantino’s iconic film “Pulp Fiction” clinched the prestigious Palme d’Or in 1994. Thurman, known for her roles in “Kill Bill” and “The House That Jack Built,” departed the festival after its “extraordinary” premiere due to commitments on another film project.

Thurman lamented missing the moment when Tarantino, along with co-stars John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, celebrated the film’s victory during the closing ceremony. “I wish I had been there. I was shooting something else, so I wasn’t there when it won. That’s a real sadness and a regret, that I wasn’t able to be there when it won,” she expressed.


Despite this missed opportunity, Thurman has since made numerous appearances at Cannes, supporting films like “Vatel,” “The Golden Bowl,” “Kill Bill Vol. 2,” and marking the 20th anniversary of “Pulp Fiction” with a special screening in 2014 alongside Travolta and Tarantino.


Reflecting on the significance of Cannes in her career, the 54-year-old actress remarked, “It’s really special. I mean, I’ve had so many films play in the festival. I don’t remember how many were in the competition or had premieres there, I’ve lost track, but I think it’s one of the most special film gatherings remaining in the world, if not the most special.”


Thurman returned to the Croisette just last month for the premiere of Paul Schrader’s latest film “Oh, Canada,” where she stars alongside Richard Gere and Jacob Elordi. Her enduring presence at Cannes continues to underscore the festival’s enduring allure and importance in the global film industry.
