Director DAVID O RUSSELL is so grateful to UMA THURMAN's father ROBERT for inspiring his latest movie I HEART HUCKABEES, he based the central character on him.

The KILL BILL star's dad taught Russell ancient texts at college, and was such a profound influence on the young film-maker, Russell used DUSTIN HOFFMAN's detective character to pay homage to him.

He tells British magazine EMPIRE, "I was taught by Robert Thurman. He's one of the most brilliant scholars in the world, completely unpretentious but an expert in Sanskrit and all these ancient texts.

"The detective played by Dustin Hoffman is actually based on him."
