Uma Thurman is finding motherhood easier now that she is older
The 42-year-old actress - who already has daughter Maya, 14, and son Levon, 10, from her previous marriage to Ethan Hawke - gave birth to daughter Luna in July and feels more confident this time. She said: "The question of balance has always been kind of a funny one to me because I don-t think there is any balance. I feel like I`ve never done enough. I do think I`m pretty good at home, but trying to balance my energies outside the home? It`s a challenge; there`s so much more I want to do and can do."
"When I was younger and became a mother, I didn`t think I could do anything else; I was completely overwhelmed. I felt guilty and afraid about working, guilty and afraid about not working. It`s very overwhelming for a younger person, which is why it`s awesome to get to have another baby when you`re grown up."
Uma - who is dating Arpad Busson, 49 - is excited about getting back to work but is trying to ease herself into it gently.
She said: "Because I just had a baby this year, I haven`t quite gotten up and running yet, but I did a role in a movie called `Playing for Keeps`, which is a comedy. I just had a really fun time. I also went over to Germany and did a big scene, which is a monologue, with Lars von Trier for his film `Nymphomaniac`. I`m not the nymphomaniac, but it`s going to be totally scandalous.
"I`ve been on maternity leave for a while, so it`s all about the future. I-m reading scripts, and I changed my agents-I`m hitting refresh in my career."
