Uma Thurman panicked that she would not work as an actress again following the birth of her children
Uma Thurman panicked she would never work again.
The 'Kill Bill' star admits she continues to be surprised that she gets work.
She said: "When I was 16, they were like, 'Mm, well enjoy yourself. You might not be an adult woman actor'.
"And then when you're in your twenties , they're like, 'Enjoy yourself. That late-twenties thing thing is not going work'. And somehow I hung around.
"Becoming a mother definitely took the focus off my work. Then I had a few panics that I couldn't get a job any more, and then I would get one."
The 39-year-old actress, who has two children - Maya Ray, 11 and Levon Roan, eight from her marriage to actor Ethan Hawke - also admits to loving her career.
She told Style: "I love what I do. For my wellbeing, I need to be reminded that I have other purposes. In the old days, people pined for their husbands. In modern life, your work is like your man, your love.
