Actress Kathy Bates has said she would love to play a lesbian role opposite Uma Thurman.

Bates, who plays a gay woman in the upcoming film Tammy (out July 2), told Michigan gay weekly Pride Source that she thought Thurman was “pretty cool.”

“I could see doing a movie with her and having a lesbian relationship – although I'm much too old for her,” she said with a laugh.

In Tammy, Bates plays Lenore, a lesbian woman in a relationship with Susan (played by Sandra Oh of Grey's Anatomy.)

Bates said she was “absolutely in love with Sandra.”

“[L]et me just say that she really brought our relationship to bloom,” Bates said. “She brought a lot of love and warmth, and it was her idea to have wedding rings – because of course! – which I hadn't thought about, and also, to think that our relationship is the healthiest relationship in the movie.”

“She brought just so much love,” Bates added.
