(contactmusic.com ) - Uma Thurman finds it odd how she is hailed as a Hollywood sex symbol - because she was so ugly as a child. The Kill Bill beauty insists she was an ugly duckling growing up, claiming her features were so strange it looked as if they were "taped to the side" of her head.And the 37-year-old former model didn't expect big shot movie producers to come flocking due to her beauty, so she concentrated on being a high-school geek instead.She says, "I had baby fat and a big nose, big lips and big eyes that looked like they were taped to the side of my head."I was tall, really young and I had a funny name. I had not grown into my features. I was just trying to make it from history to English class and still feel good."I didn't feel doors were going to fly open for me for being cute, so I worked hard at everything."
