When news first broke that Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman hooked up at Cannes, no one really believed it.
After all, Tarantino had been pursuing Thurman for decades, describing her as his "muse," stuffing his films with unsettling extended close-ups of her feet, and having John Travolta plunge a hypodermic into her chest in Pulp Fiction because he figured that was the closest he'd get to penetration.
Well consider us fully shocked, because based on photos from last night, it seems that Q has finally scored his U:
That's Quentin and Uma leaving Mr. Chow in LA last night, and in addition to the fact that they're sneaking out the backdoor, they seem awfully close for two folks that aren't dating, wouldn't you say?
Uma is divorced from Ethan Hawke and the actor once blamed Tarantino for the dissolution of his marriage. Recently, Thurman broke up with Arpad Busson after a seven-year relationship.
We'll see if Busson also accuses Tarantino of sabotaging his relationship.
If so, then Tarantino is like the friend-zoned nerd in an '80s high school movie combined with a conniving Keyser Soze-type.
Hey, that sounds like a great idea for a Quentin Tarantino movie!
