Biography

Since then, Roberts has become the highest-paid actress in the world, topping the Hollywood Reporter's annual power list of top-earning female stars for four consecutive years (2002-2005). An unprecedented $25 million was paid to Roberts for her role in 2003's Mona Lisa Smile. As of 2007, Roberts' net worth was estimated around US$140,000,000.

Roberts was also the first actress to appear on the cover of Vogue and the first woman to land on the cover of GQ. She has been named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" eleven times, tied with Halle Berry. In 2001 Ladies Home Journal ranked her as the 11th most powerful woman in America, beating out then national security advisor Condoleezza Rice and first lady Laura Bush.

In 1993, she co-starred with Denzel Washington in the successful The Pelican Brief, based on the John Grisham novel. She also starred alongside Liam Neeson in the 1996 film Michael Collins. Over the next few years, she starred in a series of films that were critical and commercial failures, primarily because she was cast in roles that strayed too far from her film persona. She broke her losing streak with the hugely popular comedy My Best Friend's Wedding (1997), and eventually regained her earlier reputation as an actress who could open a movie and guarantee box office success. She then starred with Hugh Grant in the popular 1999 film Notting Hill. In that same year she also starred in Runaway Bride, another movie with the famous Julia Roberts-Richard Gere duo.

As of February 25, 2007, Roberts's films have grossed $2,203,765,451 at the American box office making her the biggest female movie star in history and reaching this feat with only thirty films to her name. She was also placed at the pinnacle of the Ulmer Scale, a comprehensive guide to the global star power of actors and directors in independent and studio films created by James Ulmer, ahead of such other luminaries as Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks. This was partly owing to her ability to attract filmgoers solely on the basis of her name's appearance above the title and without the support of a male co-star, something few other actresses are able to do.

At the Christmas '98 premiere of Stepmom, Roberts appeared with actor Benjamin Bratt. In late June 2001, Roberts and Bratt announced they were breaking up. "It's come to a kind and tenderhearted end," she said of their relationship.

Roberts met her current husband, cameraman Danny Moder, on the set of her movie The Mexican in 2000 and they began an affair. He was already married to Vera Steinberg Moder at the time and it has been widely reported that Roberts offered Danny's then wife $250,000.00 to agree to a divorce. After Moder's divorce was finalized, he and Roberts wed on Fourth of July 2002, at her ranch in Taos, New Mexico.

On November 28, 2004, they became the parents of fraternal twins, daughter Hazel Patricia and son Phinnaeus Walter. They had their third child, son Henry Daniel Moder, on June 18, 2007 in Los Angeles.

Roberts bought a penthouse in Manhattan's Gramercy Park neighborhood. She reportedly loves to shop anonymously, buying her own organic greens on weekends at the market in nearby Union Square. She and her family divide their time between their homes in New York City, Malibu, Venice Beach, California.
