Uma ThurmanDetails have just been made public about Uma Thurman's contract for her new movie Eloise In Paris, following a claim from Thurman's own production company citing breach of contract.

The film, which also stars Pierce Brosnan and is based on a series of 1950s children's books, is currently suspended while the courts sort the dispute out. And, by the looks of it, they've got a lot of contract to get through.

Riding high on Thurman's list of demands (after her $4.5 million fee, which is over ten percent of the total budget) is the ability to veto director, co-stars and script, first class air travel everywhere, a "three-bedroom hotel suite", three cell phones and, not just a luxury dressing room but THE most luxurious, as in no other cast member is allowed "more favourable dressing facilities". Phew.

Read more contract demands after the jump... Uma ThurmanDetails have just been made public about Uma Thurman's contract for her new movie Eloise In Paris, following a claim from Thurman's own production company citing breach of contract.

The film, which also stars Pierce Brosnan and is based on a series of 1950s children's books, is currently suspended while the courts sort the dispute out. And, by the looks of it, they've got a lot of contract to get through.

Riding high on Thurman's list of demands (after her $4.5 million fee, which is over ten percent of the total budget) is the ability to veto director, co-stars and script, first class air travel everywhere, a "three-bedroom hotel suite", three cell phones and, not just a luxury dressing room but THE most luxurious, as in no other cast member is allowed "more favourable dressing facilities". Phew.

If that's not enough, Uma's contract has stated that she should be able to buy her wigs and costumes at a 50% reduced price (I'm sure she'll be donating them to the local Oxfam). She also will be disallowing the use of her name and likeness on promotional items, such as "tobacco, weapons, religious items, personal hygiene products, intimate apparel, porn, gambling, pet food and stomach and rectal medications". Well at least that still leaves lunchboxes.

Still, if you think Uma is high maintenance, the queen of contractual demands is probably Sharon Stone for Basic Instinct 2 who, along with the $14 million salary and the usual first class travel and accommodation, wanted $3,500 per week so her bodyguards could eat well, two assistants, three nannies, chef, a deluxe motor home with every single mod-con you can think of and, best of all, no cigar smoking on set. It was worth every penny for such a staggering cinematic masterpiece...
