Uma Thurman has been tapped to preside over this year’s Cannes Un Certain Regard jury, the festival announced Friday. The actress was a member of the main competition jury fronted by Robert De Niro in 2011. “In a career spanning more than 20 years, the American actress has made some daring choices and enjoyed taking risks… Whether playing crazy, sexy or dominant, the woman whose namesake is the Hindu goddess of beauty and light has definitely entered the pantheon of movie greats, with several of her scenes attaining cult status,” the festival said in a statement.
