Uma Thurman Joins Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac

Actress Uma Thurman poses backstage at the Tommy Hilfiger Womens Fall 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Park Avenue Armory on February 12, 2012 in New York City.

Uma Thurman has joined Nymphomaniac, Lars von Trier's two-part porno drama with non-simulated — but body-double- and visual-effects-aided — sex scenes. (The film will be released in hardcore and non-hardcore versions.) It’s currently unclear what role she'll play and just how the towering actress will be able to have non-comical-looking intercourse with her diminutive male co-stars, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, and Christian Slater.
