The couple tied the knot on July 4, 2002, at their ranch in Taos, New Mexico, after meeting on the set of their 2001 film “The Mexican,” at which Moder was a cameraman.
They are parents to 16-year-old twins, Hazel and Phineas, and 14-year-old son Henry.
On Sunday, Roberts celebrated not only American Independence Day, but nearly two decades of marriage by posting a photo of herself and her half-mate on the beach together.
Actress Rita Wilson was among celebrities to react to the post, writing in the comments section: “Happy anniversary! Celebrate big on the 20th!”
Roberts was previously married to singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett from 1993 to 1995, while Moder was married to makeup artist Vera Steimberg in 2002.
In 2015, the “Pretty Woman” star lifted the lid on their romance, saying that the secret to a happy marriage was kissing. She also revealed that she enjoyed being in her husband’s company on set.
“If we have to go to work together and come home together, all that work time, when you come home and go ‘Oh, darling, how was your day?’ … we did all that during the day and in the car,” Roberts told Xtra TV. “And by the time we got home, we were able to put everything away, which was really enjoyable.”
In 2018, she praised Moder, describing her as a “terrible human being”, discussing her life and work balance during another chat with Extra. “We’re having a lot of fun.”
Roberts can next be seen starring alongside Sean Penn and Dan Stevens in the TV series “Gaslit”, a modern take on the Watergate scandal. The political drama is set to air on Starz later this year.
