After Uma Thurman hit the red carpet the other night, everyone was bugging out over whatever the hell she did or didn’t do to her face. Turns out, it was just a makeup trick, according to her longtime makeup artist Troy Surratt, who felt the need to talk to the press and set the record straight.
“We did a much stronger brow and a bold lip for a French sort of feel,” Surratt tells us. “I applied a creamy foundation for all-over glow, and then contoured the hairline and her cheekbones, adding warmth. I applied the lip — my color in Mégalomane mixed with Peccadille — and then we just kept the eyes really, really light.”
The eyes were, of course, the primary source of speculation. Surratt wanted to do something unexpected with them, insisting that nothing lifts the eyes like the perfect brows. “The way I shaded her eyebrows with the pencil, I created an uplifting effect,” he says. “Then, I finished with a shimmering, silky-beige shadow on her lids, and went with no mascara at all…sort of a reaction against all the fake lashes we’ve been seeing on the red carpet.”
Yeah, I have to say, I’m not really a fan of the no mascara look (on anyone, not Uma in particular), but to each her own.
There you have it, anyway. Record set straight. Deal with it.

Uma Thurman has been keeping a low profile for the past couple of years and hasn’t been doing many public appearances. So when she turned up for the premiere of her new NBC series The Slap on Monday looking a bit different than we remembered her, people lost it.
What happened to Uma’s face? (Well… she got older?) Is she “unrecognizable”? (I don’t think so – I knew right away it was her.) Has she had work done? (Maybe, but why does that matter?) This is like Renee Zellweger all over again! (Yes, yes it is.)
Frankly, I just think, you know, it’s been a few years and she looks different. She still has wrinkles. She still looks like herself – what’s the big deal? Time did a little write up in which they asked a pretty important question: what’s an actress to do in these situations? Good point. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
Do you think Uma looks like herself?

In this week’s edition of “Girl, You Could Do So Much Better”, rumours are flying that Uma Thurman – who recently ended her lengthy engagement to Arpad Busson – is already shacking up with weirdo director Quentin Tarantino. I know – I gagged, too.
The pair have been friends for years, of course, but apparently Quentin has “always loved [her]” and they recently decided to take their relationship “to the next level”. Oh boy.
From US Weekly:
Us Weekly can confirm that the two have taken their relationship to the next level. Sources tell Us that the pair recently spent time together at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in the South of France, where they even shared a villa.
“They had a thing and got together again recently,” one insider tells Us. “He’s loved her for years.” Both Thurman and Tarantino were presenters at the closing ceremony of the star-studded film fest on Saturday, May 24. The willowy blonde star, 44, wearing a floor-length canary custom Atelier Versace couture gown, walked arm-in-arm on the red carpet with the Oscar-winning director, 51.
Just one day before their grand entrance, the two reunited with John Travolta at a Pulp Fiction screening. (The 1994 Tarantino-directed crime flick was Thurman’s breakout moment in Hollywood. She later went on to collaborate with the director as the heroine of Kill Bill: Volumes 1 and 2.)
“There has always been an attraction,” another source explains. “She has indulged from time to time, and that’s how their relationship has always worked.”
She’s “indulged” from time to time? Come on – Quentin Tarantino is a weirdo foot fetishist, not a sprinkled donut (I think I’d prefer him more if he was the latter). The whole thing is just really bizarre to me, but hey, I guess it’s different strokes for different folks.

Uma Thurman was planning to marry partner Arpad Busson, a financier she began dating in 2007 and with whom she has a 21-month-old daughter called 21-month-old Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence. The pair got engaged in 2008, but a wedding never happened, and now it apparently never will.
The couple have decided to break off the engagement, though the reason hasn’t been made public. Not much to go off on this one, but I guess that means she’s back on the market!
Last week on Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week, we saw Camilla Belle wearing something diabolical. This week, Shia LaBeouf (above) clearly takes my WTF spot for the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week. But do you agree? See what others wore this week below (and ask yourself, “Did Laura Prepon do something to her face?”) and make your choices!
Dita Von Teese, world’s most glamorous EVERYTHING.
Welcome again to Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week in which we point out who looked great, bad, and most WTF. Last week Amanda Seyfried won my pick for best dressed. Who will get it this week? Did Christina Applegate do something to her lips/face or is it just unfortunate makeup? And how many wacky outfits did we post of Gaga‘s?
Remember to have your picks ready at the end for the BEST, WORST, and most WTF outfits/looks.
Sure, Kristen Stewart‘s face constantly looks like she just smelled an old shitty diaper, but I don’t think she’s an unattractive girl at all. However, British men don’t agree with me, as a recent poll run by the website MenKind put her at the top of a list of the least sexy actresses in Hollywood.
The full Top 10 list is as follows:
1. Kristen Stewart
2. Sarah Jessica Parker
3. Lindsay Lohan
4. Denise Richards
5. Kirsten Dunst
6. Mischa Barton
7. Hilary Swank
8. Lucy Liu
9. Tilda Swinton
10. Uma Thurman
Alright, you got me on the rest, there – none of them are remotely attractive to me (but as I said earlier this morning – different strokes, different folks). I just would have thought men might like Kristen’s “leave me alone” lip snarl she constantly seems to be doing. Shows what I know about what men like (thank God).
A spokesperson for the MenKind (via MTV News) explained the results of the poll as follows:
“Our Oscars poll has been a fascinating insight into the minds of British men – it’s shown that sexiness is far more than appearance.
“They were turned off by volatile and moody actresses as well as ice queens. And they don’t want to see unhealthily skinny starlets on the big screen.”
Word – it’s nice to see a move away from unhealthily skinny figures and a celebration of something “far more than appearance”, like, I don’t know, actual substance, intelligence, sense of humour or whatever else. It’s just a shame those didn’t matter more before.
