Uma Thurman joined the cast of "Savages" last April, she was set to play Lively's onscreen mother in the adaptation of Don Winslow's drug-fuelled piece of pulp fiction. "It was so intense, in fact, that we ended up cutting characters from the book, like the mother," director Oliver Stone said. "She was a good character -- Uma Thurman played her beautifully -- and the scenes were good, but you don’t have time, you know? We have one goal in the movie, and you go out that gate and it's like a horse race."
