Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman divorced in 2005, but Hawke still remembers a difficult period in his life. In an interview with GQ magazine, he told that his marriage with Thurman began to fall apart after he was nominated for an Oscar in 2001.
In many respects this could be the beginning of something. This was the best moment in my career,
– said the 47-year-old actor.
But, as often happens, one prevented the other, and the spouses’ relationship began to deteriorate.
Hawke said he was depressed, but struggled to ensure that his career did not suffer, while the marriage began to disintegrate. And although it was not easy for him to cope with depression, he said that he was lucky, because he had a large support group, including them with Uma Thurman children, 20-year-old daughter Maya and 16-year-old son Levon.
It’s great when the children need you every day. Life becomes balanced, – he declared.
Now Hawk (now ten years old) is happy in marriage with his wife Ryan. The couple brings up two daughters, a 10-year-old Clementine and a 7-year-old Indiana. But he maintains excellent relations with his older children. So, Maya followed in the footsteps of her parents and already makes progress in the cinema – she took part in the shooting of the third season of the popular TV series “Stranger Things” (Stranger Things), as well as in the mini-series “Little Women” (Little Women).
To see the success of your child, how he succeeds in a profession that you respect and who has devoted his life, this is incredible. I’m very proud of her, – he said.
