We all love Uma Thurman as the domineering hottie and former assassin in “Kill Bill,” and the cocaine-addicted-wife of a wealthy mobster boss in “Pulp Fiction,” but for her upcoming movie “Motherhood,” the statuesque actress will be trying on a new role as a former fiction writer-turned-unhappy blogger and mother of two. Uma’s Eliza Welch, is a stay-at-home mom (a.k.a, chauffeur, maid, dog-walker, cook and party planner). While her oblivious husband misses all her cues that she’s leading a mundane and unfulfilling life, Eliza attempts to plan her 6-year-old daughter’s birthday party while trying to write a magazine article on the meaning of motherhood.
In our exclusive clip, Eliza gets the chance to sneak away from parenting to shop with her best pals — one of whom has a pretty interesting story to tell. The girls are all giggles after Sheila (Minnie Driver) shares the juicy deets of her latest pleasure-fulfilling escapades in the bathtub “getting lucky with the submarine.” Yes, she is referring to a motorized bath toy!
“Motherhood” hits theaters this Friday.
