Hollywood star Uma Thurman has been spotted cosying up to former love JOHN CUSACK in the wake of her devastating split from cheating husband ETHAN HAWKE.

The Kill Bill actress was reportedly spotted at New York restaurant TOKYO BAY being consoled by GROSSE POINT BLANK star Cusack, whom she briefly dated after splitting from her first husband Gary Oldman 11 years ago (92).

And, according to British paper THE DAILY EXPRESS, a source says, "She looked miserable and he was being very attentive.

"They were huddled together deep in conversation all evening."

Cusack, whose most recent celebrity romance was with Meg Ryan, was said to be devoted to Uma following their brief love affair.

The source adds, "He's carried a torch for her all these years and never believed she'd be free after she married and had children.

"But now he's thanking the gods and moving in fast."
