Does modelling help Uma Thurman keep her acting edge and stay in leading lady shape? When entertainment insiders look at the career of Uma Thurman you see an acting career that is always on the edge of being great and then she seems to leave the spotlight just before her career reaches unprecedented heights. Yet just when Uma Thurman seems to be out of the media spotlight a press release occurs and she is announced in some new role both as a model and actress and this situation is once again repeating itself.
In 2013 Uma Thurman became a topic of conversation in the entertainment industry as she appeared in the 2013 Alfa Romeo Guilietta commercial and also became the calendar girl for Campari, the alcohol liqueur company. However, these modelling/commercial jobs were just two of her many projects that returned her to prominence in Hollywood in 2013.
Uma Thurman in 2013 also released three movies, "Nymphomaniac: Volume I" and "Nymphomaniac: Volume II" as well as "Movie 43". Her releasing these movies in addition to her modelling commercial work sends a message to Hollywood that she still considers herself a leading lady in Hollywood and that she is committed to not only working but pushing herself to limits not expected at this stage of her career.
The thought that Uma Thurman would want to still be pursuing modelling projects which requires that she keep herself in excellent physical shape is something that many actresses would not want to do. In addition, she displayed her willingness to continue developing and refining her acting skills with her gritty role in the "Nymphomaniac" movies which are far more challenging than what the title of the movie actually suggests.
Uma Thurman still has the "edge", the motivation to be a Hollywood leading lady and that may be in part to her modelling past which required an individual to always be willing to compete. Uma Thurman should never stop modelling because it is very much part of the reason why she is considered by many to be an actress who may still win an Academy Award at some point in her career.
