Thurman & Tarantino: 12 pictures of the inseparable pair over two decades

By
Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman are reportedly dating, 20 years after making Pulp Fiction.

Writer and director Tarantino has long referred to the actress as his "muse", while Thurman has often said that despite their differences, the pair are somehow very compatible.

Thurman recently split from French financier fiancé Arpad Busson, with whom she has a 21-month-old daughter.

Tarantino's motto has been: "I've made a choice, so far, to go on this road alone. Because this is my time to make movies."

We've delved into the archives and discovered 12 heart-warming pictures of the inseparable Thurman and Tarantino spanning two decades below:

1. The wallpaper, the cigar, Thurman's incredulous expression... These two look like a pretty cool couple as they promote the release of Pulp Fiction in '94.

3. This was actually taken in 2001, so we're not sure what excuse Tarantino or Thurman have for their eye-catching cowboy-style outfits, which they not only wore out, but to a screening party at the Cannes Film Festival.
