Julia Roberts’ life from Hollywood exes to cameraman husband and film star niece

Julia Roberts has been one of the leading ladies in Hollywood since the 1980s with starring roles from Pretty Woman to Notting Hill and Erin Brockovich.

Over the years she’s also dated some of Hollywood’s most famous men, but chose to settle down with someone a bit lower in profile, in a film cameraman.

Julia, 54 , has also now got a niece making her own name as a Hollywood star, showing that the talent really does run in the family.

Julia’s first big Hollywood romance came in 1987 when she dated her Satisfaction co-star and future Taken actor Liam Neeson, 69.

The two dated for a year before calling it quits in 1988.

She then fell for another co-star, Dylan McDermott, future American Horror Story star, who played Julia’s husband in Steel Magnolias.

The pair actually even got engaged during their two year relationship but Julia called things off in 1990 before they ever tied the knot.

Julia then met singer Lyle Lovett on the set of The Player, where the two found they had immediate chemistry.

So much so that Julia broke her streak of unsuccessful engagements marrying Lyle in 1993.

But the marriage was short-lived, the couple calling things off by 1995.

Matthew Perry was one of the stars of friends

Julia was also rumoured to have dated Friends actor Matthew Perry between 1995 and 1996.

It was in 2001 though that Julia finally met her now husband Danny Moder.

Then working as a humble cameraman the two couldn’t be together as he was married to wife Vera Steimberg.

But when they divorced later that year it wasn’t long before Danny, now a cinematographer, and Julia got together and they wed in June 2002 just a month after his divorce was finalised.

Since then the couple have remained happily married and have three kids together, twins Hazel and Phinneus, 17, and son Henry, 14.
