'Robert is good-looking, but he doesn't sparkle like in those Dracula movies': Uma Thurman opens up about her co-star as she graces the cover of Harper's Bazaar UK
He may be the co-star in her latest movie but that didn't stop Uma Thurman from being upfront about Robert Pattinson.
The 41-year-old actress was obviously expecting a question about the Twilight star when she appeared in this month's Harper's Bazaar UK magazine – and she was certainly ready to answer it.
'To answer the ubiquitous question about this movie, yes, Robert is good-looking in person, but he doesn’t have that diamond-sparkle skin like in those Dracula movies,' she said.

The mother-of-two was of course referring to upcoming film Bel Ami in which she plays Pattinson's secret love interest.
As she draped herself across a velvet sofa in an array of designer dresses, Thurman went on to say that she enjoyed the role very much.
'It was a fun character, a nice, meaty, dramatic role, and who doesn’t love an excuse to wear a corset' she told the monthly publication.
But before she could change the subject, she had one more thing to say about Pattinson: 'He’s a very disciplined, very serious, very ambitious, very organised actor.'
Thurman then went on to admit that it was only six years ago that she felt comfortable in the acting world.
'Acting was a place where I could fit in with those who didn’t fit in,' she explained.

'People who grow too fast usually have a very long awkward phase. Mine ended around 35.'
However, the blonde star looked far from awkward as she was photographed by Mark Seliger laying across furniture.
In the art-deco inspired spread, Thurman wears a provocative tulle dress by Lanvin which highlights are enviable figure and slender legs.
In another shot, she channels the 1920s look by wearing a gold embroidered dress with an organza train and mask by Alexander McQueen.
The actress obviously felt comfortable working with the UK edition of the magazine as she admitted she loves working in the Capital.
'When it comes to wardrobe, make-up – really anything in the creative arts – the greatest crews are in London.'

She also went on to explain how she feels she has proven the tough Hollywood industry wrong by still having a strong and successful career.
'There’s a lot of aggressive talk in this business,' the Pulp Fiction star said.
'You turn 18 and they say you won’t have a career at 20. You turn 24 and they say you won’t last till you’re 30. Now it’s like, if I’m so over, why are you talking to me now'
Thurman – who has two children, Maya, 13, and nine-year-old Levon – was married to actor Ethan Hawke for five years but admitted to Harper's Bazaar that she's never been happier than she is now.
'I have something I would really like to express about my love life,' she said.
'I’m happier with it now than I’ve been in many, many years. Yes I’m trying to have as peaceful a personal life as possible.'
Thurman began dating London-based financier Arpad Busson in 2007, but the relationship ended in November 2009.
However, last year she was pictured with him again at the Marc Jacob Spring/Summer fashion show in Paris and judging by her latest quotes, she is very happy when it comes to her love life.
