TheActiveTimes: Stars Who Sweat for The Screen

Uma Thurman

Three months after having a baby and thirty pounds overweight, Uma Thurman was handed a script for Quentin Tarantino’s "Kill Bill" and asked to learn “three styles of kung fu, two styles of sword fighting, knife throwing, knife fighting [and] hand-to-hand combat,” she told Time Magazine. She put in some hardcore training with master martial arts choreographer Yuen Wo-ping, whose credits include "The Matrix" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." “They trained me five days a week for three months from nine in the morning until five o'clock at night and we were not to be late and I never got to leave early,” Thurman told IGN.
