A tabloid claims Julia Roberts‘ husband, Danny Moder, is upset about his wife saying she finds Tom Hanks “super hot.” The story is completely ridiculous. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
Roberts made the comment last month during the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony for Hanks’ wife, Rita Wilson. After describing her Larry Crowne co-star as “super hot,” the actress added, “Yeah, I said it. Now everybody knows.” According to the Globe, Roberts’ remarks have triggered problems in her supposedly “rocky marriage” to her husband of 16 years.
“Danny couldn’t believe she would say something like that at a time their marriage is in trouble,” a supposed source tells the magazine. “He’s getting sick of her putting on this girlish flirting act in public.” The alleged insider adds, “It’s embarrassing because a lot of people know that he’s struggling to keep their relationship alive.”
The untrustworthy outlet conveniently leaves out a very key part of the actress’s speech. Roberts was honoring Hanks’ wife at the time, and told the crowd, “I have been lucky enough to know her long enough to learn things that we have in common: devotion to our mothers, endless joy of our families, super hot husbands.” Roberts gave the same compliment to her own husband, despite the Globe trying to make it appear as if the actress got up on stage at the ceremony and started randomly fawning over her former co-star.
Meanwhile, the idea that the actress and her husband are having marriage problems simply isn’t true. Roberts posted an Instagram tribute to Moder in honor of Valentine’s Day in February. In January, the happy spouses showed a ton of PDA at the Golden Globe Awards. Following the ceremony, the actress shared an Instagram photo of the two kissing in their car.
And just a few months ago, Roberts gushed about her husband during an interview on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop podcast. The actress called Moder her “favorite human” and said marrying him changed her life “in the most incredible, indescribable way.” It’s also worth noting, Roberts addressed false tabloid stories about her marriage in her Harper’s Bazaar cover story a few months back. The actress noted that divorce stories printed in magazines “still hurt my feelings, because I’m so proud of my marriage.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to call out a tabloid for alleging that one of Roberts’ former co-stars was coming between her and Moder. We recently busted the Globe‘s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for falsely claiming Roberts was leaving her husband for George Clooney, her co-star in Money Monster and the Ocean’s Eleven franchise. This latest article involving supposed jealousy over Hanks is more fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
