Who is Julia Roberts husband Daniel Moder? Bio, facts, net worth.

Over the years, Daniel Moder has had a series of different roles but all behind the camera. Moder has worked on the creative side of things all his life, ranging from cameraman to cinematographer. His association with movies is also how he met his future wife, Julia Roberts. An A-lister actor who needs no introduction, Roberts is known for her role in the romantic comedy film Pretty Woman (1990). Since then, Roberts has named three Golden Globe Awards, from eight nominations, and has been nominated for four Academy Awards. She ultimately won the award for Best Actress for her performance in Erin Brockovich (2000). Despite her professional success, Roberts had her fair share of personal troubles, which lasted until she met Daniel Moder. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Daniel Moder.

Early Life:

Daniel Richard Moder was born on the 31st of January, 1969, to producer Mike Moder and Patricia Ann Watz. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Moder spent most of his siblings, John, Jyl, Jane, and Debbie.
