Relationship with Daniel Moder
They may not be in the best of health right now, but Vera Steimberg and Daniel Moder were once married to each other. They met on the set of one of the films she was working on – he was the cameraman at the time, and they soon had a relationship and finally married in 1997. Five years of marital bliss were not enough to stop Moder from seeing other women, including Julia Roberts. Unfortunately, Vera discovered this thanks to paparazzi in a magazine.

Faced with the difficulties in her paradise, the divorce papers were served, and during the time the divorce was finalized, Julia cast a massive shadow on the make-up artist by wearing a T-shirt with “Vera go home” printed on it. As if that wasn’t torture enough, the rumor circulated that the actress had diverted half a million dollars from her drooling net worth, which she offered to Vera Steimberg Moder as motivation to get her to sign the divorce papers faster. She was obviously in a hurry to kidnap Vera’s husband. However, this claim was never confirmed or refuted by either party.
The troubled marriage officially ended in 2002, and in the same year Moder married Roberts, and they have been together and living with their three children ever since. Vera had predicted that Roberts would suffer the same fate that she suffered at Moder’s hand, but this has not yet come to pass.
