Since her debut in the 1990 movie “Pretty Woman,” which is still one of the parts she is best known for, Julia Roberts has been one of Hollywood’s top leading women. The celebrity has won multiple awards for her performances, including three Golden Globes and an Academy Award.
Roberts, who was born on October 28, 1967, in a region close to Atlanta, Georgia, always dreamed of becoming a vet. But when she became a little older, her ambitions altered, and she made the decision to relocate to New York City to pursue an acting career. She joined a modeling agency there and started acting training.
Roberts’ leap of faith clearly paid off, as she has since gone on to become one of the most well-known and enduring actors in history. Roberts also has a reputation for being incredibly attractive and friendly, which has helped her win even more admiration from both reviewers and fans.
The actress, who ranks among the most well-known individuals in the world, makes an effort to keep her family and herself out of the spotlight. Roberts married cinematographer Daniel Moder in 2002 instead of another celebrity, in line with her reserved personality.
The two met while working on the set of the film “The Mexican,” in which Roberts played the major role and Moder served as cameraman. Phinnaeus and Hazel, identical twins, both 17, and Henry, a boy, all 15, are their three children.
Roberts has tried her best to maintain a quiet life with her family over the years while yet giving viewers a peak into her adorably romantic relationship with Moder. Continue reading to learn more about their lovely 20-year union.
The actress had to go through a number of possible suitors before she finally met her soul mate, so her path to discovering true love was anything from straight. Roberts frequently dated her co-stars or other actors after initially becoming famous in the late 1980s. Liam Neeson, Dylan McDermott, Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Matthew Perry, and Benjamin Bratt are just a few of the renowned men she has dated over the years. She also shared a short union with Lyle Lovett.
After years of being a runaway bride, during which time she had one marriage and other engagements that she called off on her own, Roberts eventually met the one when she met Moder, the man who would become her husband. Despite not being an actor like the most of her ex-boyfriends, Moder and Roberts did meet on a set. Cameraman Moder had contributed to the 2001 film “The Mexican,” which featured Roberts and Brad Pitt.
Before the pair began dating, there was just one tiny problem: Moder was still legally wed to his first wife, Vera Steimberg, when he met Roberts. Even though, Moder divorced shortly after, and their romance was revealed to be genuine. On July 4, 2002, they exchanged vows at Roberts’ property in Taos, New Mexico. Phinnaeus and Hazel, identical twins, were born in November 2004, and Henry, their third child, was born in June 2007.
Despite being one of Hollywood’s leading women, Roberts has done a good job of maintaining a relatively quiet existence throughout the years. The actress has occasionally allowed her admirers to see a small portion of her personal life, though.
Roberts surprisingly revealed how extraordinarily special the bond she had with Moder during her conversation with Gwyneth Paltrow for the GOOP Podcast in 2018. She uttered:
“I believe that meeting and marrying Danny was the first major “seismic change” in my life. That was the first time I felt like my life will never be the same in the most amazing manner imaginable.
She praised her spouse even more, calling him her “favorite human.” Added her:
He is unquestionably still my favorite person right now. More than anyone else, I’m interested in what he has to say or his point of view. In that regard, we are quite fortunate. We really adore one another and delight in each other’s company.
Roberts proceeded by saying that everything was extremely simple for them and that their behavior had “some type of some explicable harmony.” If Roberts’ entire adoration for Moder wasn’t already plain, she made it crystal clear when she said:
He was the wisest choice I’ve ever made,
Roberts and Moder have been wed for an amazing 20 years at this point. The actress shared a touching Instagram message to mark the occasion. She posted a photo of her and her husband sharing a tender kiss along with the hashtags “TWENTY” and “can’tstopsmiling” and “can’tstopkissing,” respectively.
Moder is without a doubt the one Roberts has been looking for, and the two of them have raised their children as a loving family. Roberts and Moder “really feel like soulmates,” an insider said in 2020, adding that the pair is “determined to remain together for the long run, whatever it takes.”
