Julia Roberts and Danny Moder are one of Hollywood’s most private couples. They are rarely ever photographed together and they don’t really give the press many details about their life together. We’ve managed to dig up some interesting little facts about romance, so check out these 8 things you didn’t know about the couple’s relationship:
8. He Was Married When They Met
He was married when they first met on the set of The Mexican in 2001 to Vera Steimberg, a makeup artist, and she was dating actor Benjamin Bratt. Moder was the film’s B Camera First Assistant and Roberts was starring in the movie alongside Brad Pitt. His marriage was already strained when he met the actress because both he and Steimberg were on location frequently, and six months after he and Roberts met, he moved out of the home he shared with his wife. Vera Steimberg was reluctant to give Moder a divorce and, according to Roberts, she made things really difficult at times, so Julia reportedly paid her $400,000 to hurry the proceedings along.
