She admitted she was sexually naive when she appeared alongside John Malkovich in the movie, reports femalefirst.co.uk. She was 18 then.
"I could not stand being the inflatable sex doll everyone wanted me to be. I was naive, sexually, when I made that film and it felt paralysing to be thrust in to this overtly sexual image which had nothing to do with who I was," said Thurman. The movie had a sequence wherein Malkovich seduced her.
