Posted Thursday February 27, 2014 6:13 PM GMT

With her new film "Nymphomaniac" set to hit theaters March 6th, Uma Thurman pitched in on promotional efforts by covering the latest issue of Net-A-Porter's The Edit.

The 43-year-old actress looked absolutely gorgeous in designer duds from Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Louboutin for the Giampaolo Sgura-shot front page while opening up about everything from her big acting return to raising a newborn in her 40s.

On her acting hiatus:
"I certainly feel really fresh. You can wear yourself down. The hammer gets dull. A philosopher friend of mine once said to me, 'I find that I get more work done when I'm not working.' If I don't step away, my work becomes very boring. When I do really get back to work, I think it will all feel different. You change a lot in two years as a human being as well as a performer. I’ve never had such a big step back. So it will all be new for me. It will feel as if it’s the first time."

On her working with new directors:
"There is no greater quality in a director than precision. When you work with great people, half the battle is meeting them. Everyone is scared of everyone else. There’s a lot to get over, to get everyone to calm down and sit down like old musicians, pick up their instruments and start playing. Those are the greatest pleasures. They don’t happen all the time."

On her youngest child, Luna:
“I was so surprised at how many things seemed new again. You’re a different person. When you have a child in the early side of your child-bearing years – which for a New Yorker means there’s still a two in front of your age, as opposed to a three or a four - you’re changing so much as a person; you’re so volatile. You think you’re grown up, but you’re a child yourself. It’s different to be at a point in your life where it’s just... Stunning. Having a child is like having your heart get out of your ribcage and walk around the room. But then your heart gets car keys – and lipstick.”
