Uma ThurmanAnyone who remembers how lovingly the camera lingered on Uma Thurman as she danced with John Travolta in Pulp Fiction also probably suspected that the person directing the camera -- Quentin Tarantino -- might have had a bit of a thing for his leading lady. Hey, lots of directors crush on the beautiful faces on the other side of the camera. But not too many get to actually make that lady his girlfriend. Especially if you're as weird and dorky as Quentin. But apparently it finally happened -- Quentin and Uma Thurman are dating! (????)

US Weekly, which tends to be more reliable than your average gossip rag, reports that Quentin and Uma have "taken their relationship to the next level" -- and I don't think they mean they rode an elevator together. An "insider" (Quentin himself?!) gushed:

They had a thing and got together again recently. He's loved her for years.

OMG, that is soooo sweet. There is just something about the dude who crushes on you for years and years (in this case, two decades!) -- and patiently waits through your other relationships -- until you finally come around. Or at least run out of other options. Call it the Rhett Butler mode of courtship. Hey, it worked for Kanye too!

Uma is recently separated from very wealthy Arpad Busson, with whom she has a daughter with the longest name ever (Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson). So she might be feeling a bit lonely and vulnerable.

Perfect time for Quentin to make his move! And if his moves are anything like Travolta's in Pulp Fiction, these two might have a future together. Hope it works out, 'cause this just proves the geek can get the girl!

Do you think they make a good couple?
