Movie sex symbol JULIA ROBERTS received the perfect Christmas present - an engagement ring from lover DANny MODER. Lowly cameraman Dan, 32, is reported to have popped the question to PRETTY WOMAN (1990) star Roberts over the festive period.
And Roberts was happy to accept the proposal - even though her lover could only afford a $4,900 (£3,500) one-carat diamond ring. Julia says, "I'd have been happy with an elastic band. "
The couple, who met on the set of MEXICAN, the (2001), have only been dating for six months. They met soon after Roberts split from TRAFFIC (2000) star BENJAMIN BRATT. British tabloid newspaper The Star claim that the couple plan to marry next summer (2002), as soon as he divorces his wife Vera. (NB/WNTST/ES)
