Date: 31st March 2001
JULIA ROBERTS and BENJAMIN BRATT have fuelled reports that they're headed to the altar - after Bratt admitted they've "set a date".
According to New York gossip columnist LIZ SMITH, someone in the OSCAR night (25MAR01) crowd whispered to the actor, "Are you going to get married?" to which he grinned and answered, "Well, we set the date. But no, I won't tell you when it is!"
Roberts, who carried off a Best Actress Oscar for her role in ERIN BROCKOVICH (2000) at Sunday's (25MAR01) awards show in Los Angeles, has been dating the former LAW AND ORDER star for over three years. The couple now live together. (LE/LAT/CPT)
