And Now We Are One

‘CAN Julia Roberts make it to her first wedding anniversary with a husband in tact?

A bike and, er, another one

That’s the big question as the Pretty Woman star approaches the 11-month mark with current beau Danny Moder.

But the signs aren’t looking good, with the National Enquirer having this week to report that the couple’s marriage is in crisis.

It says the 35-year-old Roberts is preparing to turn her back on Hollywood to try to save the relationship – but it may be too late.

Moder apparently told his wife ”It’s over” after one of their frequent rows – and he’s then supposed to have announced that he’s going back to his first wife, Vera.

A close pal takes up the story. ”Julia begged Danny: ‘Please don’t leave me! I can’t live without you! I’ll do anything to save this marriage.”’

Anything, says the Enquirer, could include buying a place in Hawaii and relocating there for 18 months.

”I want to find a tropical paradise for me and Danny, as far away from Hollywood as I can get,” she reportedly told a friend.

Hawaii’s not exactly as far away from Hollywood as you can get, but it is thankfully in the good old US of A and therefore not full of nasty foreign types.

”This is Julia’s last desperate attempt to save her marriage,” a pal tells the magazine. ”She couldn’t take the embarrassment and humiliation of having yet another failed relationship.”

With so many behind her, you would have thought it was water off a duck’s back by now.

But even friends don’t think a career break or marriage counselling will save this one.

”It’s one thing for Julia, who is worth millions and has reached her goals by winning an Oscar, to step back and take a break from the business,” says a pal.

”But for Danny, it might not be such a great move to have Julia around all the time.”

The couple got married on July 4 last year. This year, July 4 might be independence day for them both.
