Uma Thurman & Quentin Tarantino Dating After Years of Unrequited Love

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?

I really do like's The Stir very much. I'm just trying to bring to light the the idea of anyone considering how calling someone "dorky" and "geek" affects that person. There are many articles on here that are anti-bully, but it seems that articles like this one (while well-meant I know) seem to disregard what other articles are speaking out against.

I always thought that they would wind up together someday. When you see those behind-the-scenes featurettes of the movies that they make together you can see this connection with them. If this is true, I hope it works out.

Natalie, just because another article "speaks against" something doesn't make it law. I'm a self-described geek -- it's not bullying to call someone that in this context. That's ridiculous. Please try not to take everything so literally. Please.

UMA is gay-she's just using Quentin as the "beard" because he's brillant and cool.
She's pushy and gross.

I'm friends with Quentin and asked him about this-this is what he said: "Uma is gay-there's absolutely NO truth to these stories! It seems like we're friends because she worked for me, but I think she's pushy and gross. She'll do anything for publicity."
