Julia Roberts and her husband, cinematographer Daniel Moder, first crossed paths on the set of her film “The Mexican” in 2000, a period when she was still in a relationship with Benjamin Bratt. Notably, Moder was married to Vera Steimberg at that time, leading to accusations of husband stealing. Moder filed for divorce a little over a year later, and once the divorce was finalized, he and Roberts tied the knot on July 4, 2002. Together, they share three children: twins, a daughter and a son, born in November 2004, and another son born in June 2007.

However, Julia Roberts has been involved in romantic relationships with actors Jason Patric, Liam Neeson, Kiefer Sutherland, Dylan McDermott, and Matthew Perry. Notably, she was briefly engaged to Sutherland, and their relationship ended just three days before their scheduled wedding on June 11, 1991. On June 25, 1993, Roberts married country singer Lyle Lovett at St. James Lutheran Church in Marion, Indiana. However, they separated in March 1995 and later divorced. Following her divorce, from 1998 to 2001, Roberts dated actor Benjamin Bratt.


After making her initial television appearance as a juvenile rape victim in the first season of the series “Crime Story” alongside Dennis Farina in the episode “The Survivor,” which aired on February 13, 1987, Julia Roberts transitioned to the big screen with her debut in the dramedy “Satisfaction” (1988). In this film, she starred alongside Liam Neeson and Justine Bateman as a band member searching for a summer gig. Notably, Roberts had previously filmed a small role in 1987 opposite her brother Eric in “Blood Red,” where she only had two words of dialogue. However, this project was not released until 1989.

Following early breakthroughs in films like “Mystic Pizza” (1988) and “Steel Magnolias” (1989), Julia Roberts solidified her position as a leading actress with a standout role in the top-grossing romantic comedy “Pretty Woman” (1990). Throughout the 1990s, she continued to dominate the box office with successful films, including romantic comedies like “My Best Friend’s Wedding” (1997), “Notting Hill” (1999), and “Runaway Bride” (1999). Her remarkable portrayal of the title character in the biographical drama “Erin Brockovich” (2000) earned her the Academy Award for Best Actress.

In the subsequent decades, Roberts sustained her success with notable films such as “Ocean’s Eleven” (2001), “Ocean’s Twelve” (2004), “Charlie Wilson’s War” (2007), “Valentine’s Day” (2010), “Eat Pray Love” (2010), “August: Osage County” (2013), “Wonder” (2017), and “Ticket to Paradise” (2022).

Venturing into television, Roberts received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for her role in the HBO television film “The Normal Heart” (2014). She also took on her first regular television role in the Amazon Prime Video psychological thriller series “Homecoming” (2018) and portrayed Martha Mitchell in the Starz political limited series “Gaslit” (2022).

Beyond acting, Roberts operates the production company Red Om Films, serving as an executive producer for various projects, including the initial four films of the American Girl franchise (2004–2008). Since 2009, she has been the global ambassador for Lancôme. Known for her substantial earnings, Roberts was the world’s highest-paid actress for much of the 1990s and the early 2000s. Notably, she received unprecedented fees of $20 million and $25 million for her roles in “Erin Brockovich” (2000) and “Mona Lisa Smile” (2003), respectively. As of 2020, Roberts’ net worth was estimated to be $250 million.
