6. UMA THURMAN

Film: Kill Bill (2003)

Uma Thurman wielded the ancient Japanese blade like no other female has ever done in Tarantino’s revenge flick, Kill Bill. Thurman plays “The Bride,” an ex-assassin who wakes up from a coma after being shot in the dome by her former love Bill (played by the late David Carradine) during her wedding. She seeks revenge on her former “co-workers” who all double-crossed her. She sliced, diced and tore the house down in the process.
