Uma Thurman has paid £6.15 million for a 13-room home previously owned by Yorkshire-born romantic novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford in New York’s exclusive River House complex.
The picky residents committee — which has turned away celebrities down the decades including Hollywood star Diane Keaton — took three years to agree on the Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction actress as a suitable neighbour.
Legend has it that the late Joan Crawford was so outraged at being asked to apply to live in the block she arranged for a giant neon Pepsi sign to be positioned opposite it.
Thurman is said to love her new apartment’s cosy library and wood-burning fireplaces.
