This was one dangerous liaison Uma Thurman wishes she could have avoided.
The anxious-looking actress turned up this morning at a Lower Manhattan courthouse and confronted a former mental patient accused of stalking and harassing her.
Sporting a wool camel jacket over a black shirt and black slacks, the Kill Bill star entered the state supreme court building escorted by officers and ignored the throng of reporters and paparazzi tailing her.
Inside, Thurman took the stand in the trial of Jack Jordan, a 37-year-old Maryland native who was arrested last October outside Thurman's Greenwich Village apartment and booked on misdemeanor stalking and coercion charges.
Her voice just barely above a whisper, the 38-year-old Oscar nominee avoided all eye contact with Jordan, who sat quietly with his hands clasped under his chin.
