The stunning lookalike daughter of Uma Thurman, 16-year-old Maya Thurman-Hawke, rocked the red carpet at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City on Monday (June 1). The teen looked beautiful in a floral Zac Posen gown featuring a high neckline, multicolored beading and ethereal sheer overlay.
The teen – whose father is actor Ethan Hawke – twirled on the red carpet, showcasing the beautiful sheer shirt. She attended the NYC event with the designer of her dress.
A few years ago, Hawke gushed about his oldest child.
“She’s super-talented,” Hawke said of Maya. “She writes her own music and we went and played eight of her songs. She’s only 13, so I don’t know if its going to be an interest she sustains over a lifetime, but I was happy to see her have this creative outlet.”
Uma and Ethan are also parents to 13-year-old son Levon. As well, Uma is mom to 2-year-old daughter Luna, and Ethan has daughters Clementine, 6, and Indiana, 3.
Legendary actress Goldie Hawn opens up in Porter‘s Summer Escape issue. Posing with grandsons Wilder, 7, and Bodhi, 5, the actress, 69, dishes on her 32-year relationship with Kurt Russell, her grown children, and the gender wage gap in Hollywood.
On the gender wage gap in Hollywood: “We have made some strides, there’s no question. The relationship between men and women is definitely changing, but when you think that we only got to vote how many years ago? We’re still dealing with these kinds of paradigms. If you look at racial issues—I’m reading Truman’s autobiography at the moment—they were dealing with the very same situations that we’re dealing with today. It’s human nature to create these problems. Women are trying to find their own power inside relationships, too. You have to ask yourself, is there too much power? Do I hold too much power? Do I have more money than the other person?”
On how her daughter, Kate Hudson, deals with gender inequality in Hollywood: “I think that Katie deals with that on her level. She’s not me. She sees things her way, although we agree on a lot of things.”
On being mindful: “The things we do early in life aren’t always what we will do later. You just keep growing, embracing change, being present with what is. We are the sum total of our life experiences—that’s what builds us; that’s who we become. If we don’t do any personal research or any personality and psychic excavation, we really aren’t growing—we’re only just existing. It is then that we become reactive. So we want to create more awareness in the classroom, more self-awareness and more awareness of others. We build empathy. We tell kids that they actually can help someone else. It gives them strength and purpose and connection with other humans.”
On aging: “Getting older is a fact of life. By living mindfully you understand that there are many transitions in life. You just go through them. But it’s wonderful to know you’re aging, because that means you’re still on the planet, right? It’s all about how you make it. It’s all in your mind.”
On the secret to her longterm relationship with Russell: “A lasting relationship isn’t about marriage. It’s about compatibility and communication. And you both need to want it to work. If one person does not want it to work, it isn’t going to work. Intention is the key. It’s also about not losing yourself in each other. Being together, two pillars holding up the house and the roof, and being different, not having to agree on everything, learning how to deal with not agreeing. Everything’s a choice.”
