Julia Roberts, allegedly, left her husband, Danny Moder, for her Pretty Woman co-star Richard Gere.
Julia Roberts has been subjected to various rumors as an actress. Recent reports targeted her marriage and claimed that she dumped her spouse to be with Richard Gere. One outlet alleged that she was “secretly in love with him.”
Julia Roberts and Richard Gere rumored romance
Last year, OK! Magazine published a report claiming that Julia Roberts wanted to be with Richard Gere. It alleged that Roberts was “secretly in love” with her Runaway Bride co-star.
The outlet added that there was an “intense chemistry and bond” between the two actors. Roberts’ “powerful connection” has reportedly “caused a problem in her marriage.”
“Richard’s always been the one that Julia’s turned to in tough times, and she feels like no one knows her as he does. Julia can’t help but wonder if she should’ve been with Richard all along,” a so-called source said.
“Julia knows she’d be risking it all for love, and the word is, she thinks it might be worth it… People have always thought she’s secretly in love with him,” the insider added.
The source also alleged that once Roberts is single again, it would lead Gere to question his marriage to Alejandra Silva. Everyone reportedly found the two “perfect for each other.”
Roberts and Gere are just friends
Gossip Cop debunked the report and said it was completely fabricated.
One should take the report with a grain of salt for several reasons.
First, Julia Roberts is not leaving her husband. In fact, she is very happy with her married life.
Second, this isn’t the only rumor involving Roberts; that is not true. There were also claims linking her to George Clooney.
Third, Richard Gere is very contented and happy with his family life, too.
What Julia Roberts said about her marriage
Julia Roberts is very happy with Danny Moder. In fact, in a past interview with Gwyneth Paltrow, she admitted that there was a “seismic shift” when she met Moder. And until this time, he is her favorite person.
“He truly, to this day, to this minute, is just my favorite human,” Roberts said.
Also, Roberts has addressed the quality of his marriage with her husband in a previous interview. She admitted that it hurts her because she is very proud of her union with Moder.
“It can still hurt my feelings, because I’m so proud of my marriage,” Roberts said.
