Uma Thurman slams the assumption she enjoying a hippie-influenced upbringing simply because her parents are practicing Buddhists.
The Kill Bill beauty insists her childhood years were perfectly normal because her parents - Robert, a Buddhist scholar, and Swedish-born psychotherapist Nena - raised her in an academic environment.
She says: "There's been a lot written about my upbringing, making it sound as if it were some hippie-dippy childhood, but that's totally absurd.
"There's an assumption that because someone is a Buddhist, they are a leftie loose cannon, unusually weird, and that's complete baloney!
"I was brought up in academic housing, I went to school, my father was a professor. It was all extremely normal."
