    “I certainly feel really fresh,” says Uma Thurman of her return to acting. We are sat in a booth at New York’s Maialino restaurant, not far from her apartment in snow-blanketed Gramercy Park. “You can wear yourself down,” she says, munching on a biscotti. “The hammer gets dull. A philosopher friend of mine once said to me, ‘I find that I get more work done when I’m not working.’ If I don’t step away, my work becomes very boring.”

    Wearing a royal-blue Carolina Herrera poncho over a cream, lace-sleeved hippie shirt, Isabel Marant jodhpurs and Chanel slippers, Thurman, at 43, is as exotic a creature as she ever was. Although on the day we meet, her cheeks, which have acquired a pink glow from the cold, are also marked with tiny scratch marks from the nails of her 19-month-old, Rosalind, her child with financier Arpad Busson, and the reason behind her two-year career break. A cherubic beauty who likes to clomp around in her mother’s shoes, Rosalind has yet to acquire an interest in nail-care. “She got me here, here

    and here,” says Thurman, pointing to the various marks around her face. “She has the strength of Venus Williams.”

    Family comes first for Thurman – Rosalind is younger sister to Maya (15) and Levon (11), whose father is actor Ethan Hawke – but “now that two of my children are older, I can work away for the first time in a long time,” she says. The timing is good, because Thurman is currently enjoying some of the best reviews of her career for her work in the new Lars von Trier film, Nymphomaniac. She plays an aggrieved wife who, in one spectacularly raw 10-minute scene, confronts her cheating husband, their three sons in tow, with evidence of his “whoring”. She’s pretty much the only clothed person in the movie. “It’s a small performance of riotous venom

    “You CHANGE a lot in
    TWO years as an
    [actor]. So it will feel as if it’s the FIRST TIME”
