Inside Uma Thurman And Ethan Hawke Personal Life After Their Divorce

Uma Thurman

Uma Thurman and her ex-husband, Ethan Hawke, have been fixtures on our screens for decades. The ex-couple has appeared in some of Hollywood’s most memorable films, occasionally together. They met on the set of their sci-fi movie Gattaca in 1996, then married two years later, in 1998. They had their daughter, Maya Hawke, the following year and their son, Levon Hawke, four years later, in 2002. According to rumors, both children followed in their parents’ footsteps, with Maya and Levon scheduled to star in Stranger Things season four.

Unfortunately, the power couple split in 2003 and divorced two years later. Thurman and Hawke have spoken openly about their relationship, divorce, and the allegations surrounding it. Rumors began to circulate at the time of their divorce that Thurman’s husband had cheated on her with their children’s babysitter, Ryan Shawhughes. Hawke, on the other hand, disputed it, claiming that their marriage had already gone apart before Shawhughes entered the scene.

Uma Thurman and Her Husband on the Failure of Their Marriage

After the divorce, Hawke began openly dating Shawhughes in 2005, despite his furious denials. The actor subsequently stated in an interview with The Guardian that she had been out of work for quite some time by the time he fell in love with their nanny. He said the fundamental reason for the schism was their desire for popularity as actors. Thurman returned to work after having children while her boyfriend remained home to care for the children.

However, the agreement did not work out, as Hawke stated:

“I’m living in a hotel room with my kids while you’re working six hours a day on a film set doing what you love. Do it for nine months and see how happy you are.”

The dissolution of their marriage crushed the Pulp Fiction actress. She thought the entire thing was strange since they were a family one day, and then she and her husband stopped communicating. However, the actress said she was sole to fault for their breakup.

Uma Thurman and Her Husband Moved On

Hawke secretly married Shawhughes in 2008, the same year they had their first child. They remain married and have two kids, Clementine and Indiana. And, in case you’re wondering, “who is Uma Thurman married to now?” she isn’t. She’d had her fair share of unsuccessful relationships. She was previously engaged to hotelier André Balazs and French banker Arpad Busson, but both engagements failed.

Thurman and Busson had a daughter in 2012, and the couple had a custody struggle, but Thurman was given primary custody. People reported in June 2021 that the actress was dating Bloomberg Media Group CEO, Justin B. Smith. This information was provided quietly in a New York Times piece titled “Washington Society Steps Back Out,” which discussed a reception at Smith’s Home. The article cited a “Pulp Fiction celebrity dating Mr. Smith” among the media elites who attended the party.
