Los Angeles, USA -- Uma Thurman regrets her father never encouraged her to follow his Buddhist faith, because it meant she couldn't be rebellious.

The "Kill Bill" star's father, Robert, was the first westerner to become a Tibetan Buddhist monk, but never pressed his religious views onto his children.

Thurman says, "My father didn't impose his religion on us as children to the point that maybe it would have been nice to have a little more -- something to rebel against."
