Danny Moder is best known as the husband of Julia Roberts, who gushed to her pal Oprah about how much she worships him. What she didn’t gush about was the fact he was married when she started dating him.
Moder was married to Vera Steimberg Moder, a make-up artist who probably makes a one-tenth of one-percent of the income Julia Roberts makes. What Julia wants, Julia gets, and she apparently wanted Danny Moder after her break-up with Benjamin Bratt (who very quickly married Talia Soto after his split with Julia.)
Julia was quite unhappy that Vera Steimberg Moder did not simply roll-over and give her cheating husband a divorce. So Julia went public with her distaste for the woman whose marriage she destroyed. She famously mocked Vera by wearing a mean-spirited shirt in public that said “A-Low Vera.” Now, that’s class! No wonder Danny Moder was so willing to dump his wife for her. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that Julia could open doors for him, and ensure he would go from a lowly cameraman to a “cinematographer.”
