Uma Thurman and Quentin Tarantino are said to think the "timing is right" for them to pursue a relationship.
The blonde actress and director, who helmed her in the Kill Bill movies, looked close as they posed on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in France last month. Uma only split from her fiancé Arpad 'Arki' Busson in April, but it is thought Quentin has been on hand to make her feel better.
"Uma and Arki's relationship had been over for a long time and, when Uma and Quentin both ended up single, they felt the timing was right," an insider told British magazine Closer. "Quentin helped heal her broken heart and they finally made the decision to be together just before they went to Cannes."
Uma has 22-month-old daughter Luna with Arki, along with Maya Ray, 16, and son Levon, 12, with her ex-husband Ethan Hawke. Her friendship with Quentin has been questioned over the years and they previously insisted they were "too close" to be a couple. Quentin has never been married and previously dated the likes of fellow director Sofia Coppola and actress Julie Dreyfus.
However, after rumours emerged that the filmmaker had loved the 44-year-old star "for years", it is thought the pair are ready to settle down.
"Now they've got the ultimate happy ending - Quentin would marry her in a heartbeat," the source added.
The pair are even thought to have shared a villa during Cannes as they reignited their spark.
"There has always been an attraction," a source previously told Us Weekly. "She has indulged from time to time, and that's how their relationship has always worked."
