PULP Fiction detailed the lives of LA mobsters, a boxer, a gangster’s wife and petty criminals in a thrilling crime movie that took the world by storm.
Director Quentin Tarantino’s iconic 1994 flick was granted the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
It is now celebrating it’s 27th anniversary – but just what has happened to the key members of the cast?
Here we take a look into the rollercoaster of fame that followed.
John Travolta played philosophical hitman Vincent Vega in the iconic movie.
He scooped a host of distinguished awards for his portrayal as the heroin-loving character, including an Oscar nomination.
More fame followed for the Grease frontman, who went on to star in American Crime Story: The People Vs OJ Simpson and a re-vamp of Hairspray.
Yet while he soared to success on-screen, off-screen, he suffered huge sorrow.
The star’s son Jett died on a family holiday aged 16 and Travolta later became involved in a $25m extortion case surrounding the death.
His wife, Kelly Preston, tragically died in 2020 after a two-year secret battle with breast cancer. She was 57.
At the time, John paid tribute to his wife’s “courageous fight.”
This month, John paid a touching tribute to her on what would have been her birthday.
Uma played Mia Wallace, the wife of gang boss Marsellus Wallace, who danced a mean twist with John Travolta’s character.
She was just 24 when she took on the role but since then has starred in hit movies Batman and Robin, Les Miserables and re-collaborated with Quentin in the Kill Bill series.
In 2017 she burst onto Broadway in The Parisian Woman.
This saw her scoop a Broadway.com audience award for the favorite leading actress.
Off screen Uma, 51, is a mom of three and was previously married to Gary Oldman and Ethan Hawke.
SAMUEL L JACKSON
Samuel plays Jules Winnfield, a hitman who initially works alongside Vincent Vega.
He recited Bible verses before slaying his victims but, after what he calls a “moment of clarity”, he quits to “walk the Earth.”
Pulp Fiction was Samuel’s 13th movie but he has spanned the decades and gone on to star in further Quentin movies including Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.
He is a firm favorite in the Marvel movies as well as starring in Die Hard With A Vengeance, A Long Kiss Goodnight and A Time To Kill to name a few.
Samuel is a dad of one and married to producer LaTanya Richardson.
