Who knew Uma Thurman had such a glamorous mother? Uma’s mother was a Swedish model, Nena von Schlebrugge, who was discovered at the age of 15 in Stockholm and flown to New York in the 50’s. (Nena’s mother had been a model as well.) She was a huge success as a cover girl and married – of all people- LSD guru Timothy Leary in 1965. She came to her senses after a year and married Uma’s father Robert Thurman, a professor of Tibetan Buddhism. Their daughter Uma started her career as a fashion model at 15 also – that’s THREE generations of models! Uma is currently pregnant with her third child – fathered by London based financier Arpad Busson.
