An alternate title to this edition of this Sort the Stars is “Blonde Actresses of a Certain Age” (my age, for the record). Both Uma Thurman and Charlize Theron have been in the Hollywood spotlight for years, but at times I still have to do a double take before knowing who I’m looking at.
Uma Thurman is a 6′ tall Gen Xer. She’s stared in thrillers such as Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, dramas such as Beautiful Girls, and action movies such as Batman & Robin and the Avengers (1998). She was married to Gary Oldman briefly, then had two children with second husband Ethan Hawke (they divorced in 2004).
Charlize Theron is just a hair shorter than Uma, but at 5’9 1/2″, she’s still one of the tall blondes of Hollywood. She’s a little younger than Thurman, but the resemblance is still strong. Theron’s starred in The Cider House Rules, Monster, Hancock and The Italian Job.
How do you know who’s who? As far as I can tell, Charlize has never done a Quentin Tarentino film. She’s aslo never been in a super hero film. So if you are watching a tall actress of a certain age in either one of those categories, it’s probably Uma.
