With all this royal wedding madness we can’t forget — it’s Uma’s birthday too!

Uma Thurman has been gracing the big screen since the 1980s in movies like Johnny Be Good, Pulp Fiction, Batman & Robin and Kill Bill. More recently though, she was given a prestigious title — judge at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Congrats!

Uma was married to fellow actor Ethan Hawke from 1998 to 2003 and the exes have two children together, Maya, 12, and Levon, 9. She was recently engaged to Arpad Busson, whom she begn dating in 2007, but they split in December 2009. Ethan, 40, is now married to Ryan Shawhughes and they are expecting their second child together.

“It’s hard to comment on yourself as a parent, but my mother reckons I’m messing things up,” Uma says. “She says grandparents are supposed to be able to spoil the children, but I spoil them so badly that she has nothing to do. I can’t help it. I’m probably making them into monsters, but I so desperately want them to be happy.”

Well we hope you and the kids have a great day! Happy birthday, Uma!
