Quentin Tarantino is reportedly dating his “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman. The Oscar-winning filmmaker has apparently become his film muse’s crying shoulder after splitting from her fiancé.

Twenty years after working together on the mega-hit flick “Pulp Fiction,” Quentin and Uma have reunited, but this time, they have a lot more going on between them than just a professional relationship.
According to Us Weekly, the two have spent time together at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in France, even sharing a villa.
“They had a thing and got together again recently,” a source told the magazine. “He’s loved her for years.”
“There has always been an attraction,” another insider claimed. “She has indulged from time to time, and that’s how their relationship has always worked.”
Quentin, 51, and Uma, 44, were seen holding hands on the red carpet at the festival for the premiere of “Clouds of Sils Maria.” The next day, they attended together the closing ceremony of the film fest, in which they were both presenters.
As spectators at the event have noted, they appeared totally comfortable with each other, with Uma seen resting her head on his shoulders several times.
The duo worked together again in the 2003 action thriller “Kill Bill,” and in its sequel “Kill Bill Volume 2” in 2004.
Though they have been linked several times in the past, starting a relationship with each other didn’t appear to be in the cards for them, though. Uma had been married then.
She was married to Gary Oldman from 1990 to 1992, then to Ethan Hawke from 1998 to 2005. In 2007, she began dating French financier Arpad Busson, and had even gotten engaged with him a year later. They split up in April 2004.
She has two children with Ethan, and one with Arpad.
Quentin, on the other hand, has been linked to a few celebrities, but has never married and no child.
