Uma Thurman has long captivated audiences with her powerful performances in iconic films like ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘Kill Bill.’ Her name has become synonymous with strong, independent women in Hollywood. However, outside of her acting career, Uma is also a dedicated and loving mother to her three children.
One of her children, Luna Thurman-Busson, has recently been stepping into the public eye, and people are eager to know more about this young girl. In this article, we will explore Luna’s background, her parents’ relationship, and her growing presence alongside her famous mother.
The Story Behind Luna’s Names
Luna, whose full name is Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, was born to Uma Thurman and former fiancé Arpad Busson on July 15, 2012. She has two older siblings, Maya Hawke and Levon Hawke, who are Uma’s children from her previous marriage to actor Ethan Hawke.
Her unique name was a result of her parents’ inability to agree on a single name. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show back in 2013, Uma explained that they decided to include all the names they liked, and eventually settled on calling her Luna.
The Tumultuous Romance And Custody Saga
Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson began dating in 2007 and got engaged in 2008. Their relationship had its ups and downs, as they briefly split in 2009 and eventually broke up for good in 2014. Following their separation, the couple became embroiled in a custody battle over Luna. In January 2017, after a lengthy legal process, Uma was granted primary custody, as reported by Page Six.
Luna’s Rare And Delightful Public Moments
Luna’s public appearances have been rare but memorable. In December 2022, she attended the Broadway premiere of Some Like It Hot with her mother. The pair were all smiles as they posed for photos on the red carpet. This marked one of Luna’s first public outings in quite some time, making it a special moment for both mother and daughter.
Luna’s Talented Siblings
Her siblings have also made their mark in the entertainment world. Maya Hawke has become a popular actress, known for her roles in Stranger Things and Do Revenge. Levon, on the other hand, is pursuing a career in music, showcasing his talents as a musician.
Uma has expressed her immense love and pride for all her children in various interviews, including one with People in 2020 where she said she’s very proud of all her children and that they ‘conduct themselves with a lot of dignity and respect for others,’ which she believed was what every parent would dream of. As Luna grows older, it will be interesting to see if she chooses to follow in her mother’s or siblings’ footsteps, or if she carves out her unique path in life.
The Bright Future Awaits
Luna Thurman-Busson may be the daughter of two high-profile individuals, but she is undoubtedly coming into her own as she steps into the spotlight. With the unwavering support of her mother and the accomplishments of her talented siblings, Luna’s future is looking bright. As she continues to grow and make public appearances alongside her famous family, we eagerly await to see what the future holds for this young girl.
