Uma Thurman hit the red carpet Monday night in New York City for the premiere of NBC's upcoming miniseries, "The Slap."
Thurman opted for minimal eye makeup, some vibrant red lipstick and slicked-back hair for a party at the New Museum in Manhattan.
The 44-year-old star spoke about her character in "The Slap," Anouk.
"One of the things that drew me to playing Anouk is, I like exploring and playing a character who did ... the opposite of me, who chose career over family," Thurman, who has three kids, told Yahoo.
"I think that's a very noble choice, and so it's an interesting thing to sort of play with ... Part of what sort of takes place in this story is, what happens [when] a person who made that decision is presented with another option. It's an interesting and very emotional journey."
"The Slap" premieres Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
