Uma Thurman Caught In Awkward Kiss at Event: 'She Feels Violated'


Uma Thurman found herself in an unexpected lip-lock at amfAR's 23rd Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Cannes, France, on Thursday.

Thurman was helping to auction off the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show experience, which included two tickets to brand's annual runway show and a pair of tickets to the exclusive after-party. With a bid of $196,000, Fiat heir Lapo Elkann was declared the winner, and he celebrated by planting a huge smooch on the 46-year-old actress -- all the while keeping his cigarette in hand. However, Thurman's rep told ET that the feelings were not mutual.

"It is opportunism at its worst. She wasn't complicit in it," the Pulp Fiction star's rep said in a statement. "Somewhere in his head he must have thought it an appropriate way of behaving. It clearly wasn't. She is very unhappy that this happened to her and feels violated."

Images of Elkann kissing Thurman that appeared online have since been taken down.

Meanwhile, Thurman appears to be spoken for, as she's been seen out with hotelier Andre Balazs. The two broke up in 2007 after three years of dating, but were seen vacationing in St. Bart's in March of last year. What's more, Thurman also attended the 2016 Met Gala with Balazs earlier this month.
