Thurman finds being older mother easier

Los Angeles, Dec 14: Actress Uma Thurman, who has daughter Maya (14) and son Levon (10) from her previous marriage to Ethan Hawke, gave birth to her third child, daughter Luna, in July. She says she feels more confident as a mother now.

“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,” contactmusic.com quoted Thurman as saying.

The 42-year-old admits it is tough to strike a balance.

“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 have 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,” she said.

Thurman, who is dating Arpad Busson, 49, is excited about getting back to work, but she is trying to ease herself into it gently.

“I have been on maternity leave for a while, so it’s all about the future. I am reading scripts, and I changed my agents. I am hitting refresh in my career,” said Thurman.
