Uma Thurman looks different. The actress was sporting a new look on Monday when she walked the red carpet for the premiere party of “The Slap,” her new NBC series. A number of outlets are calling Thurman “unrecognizable,” invoking the red carpet appearance last October by a different-looking Renee Zellweger. The Daily Mail is freaking out, asking, “What has Uma Thurman done to her face?”

It seems like much of the startling appearance can be attributed to Thurman wearing her hair slicked back and mostly forgoing makeup except for red lipstick. It’s not as though Thurman has been out of the public eye for an extended period. Just by wearing bangs and more makeup for an NBC press tour event less than a month ago, the star looked more like her usual self (see below). Not that it will stop the usual speculation about plastic surgery that tends to follow women whose appearance changes.

“The Slap” also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Melissa George, Thandie Newton and Zachary Quinto. The eight-part series will examine the repercussions of a moment when an adult man slaps a child. It’s based on a book and early Australian TV drama. It sounds intense. Even more intense than not wearing mascara to a red carpet event. Nevertheless, Thurman’s face is generating headlines. Take a look at the pictures below, and tell us what you think. The first picture is from January 16, the second from Monday.
