After Julia Roberts and Danny Moder began dating seriously, it appears Vera Steimberg wasn’t ready to split from Moder, who she’d been with since 1997. Steimberg even allegedly refused to sign divorce papers. As the rumor goes, Roberts was upset at Steimberg’s refusal, which reportedly prompted her to conduct a public shaming of sorts. Roberts was spotted in West Hollywood rocking a DIY T-shirt that read, “A Low Vera.” Many took this as a jab at Steimberg, though Roberts insisted it was not.
During her 2003 talk with Oprah Winfrey, Robert maintained she didn’t have any ill intent when she wore the shirt. “You know what that was about? It was private,” Roberts told Winfrey. Even though she wasn’t trying to be controversial, the film star doubled down on wearing the top, adding, “I stand by my T-shirt.” Ultimately, Steimberg gave in, and the divorce was finalized in June 2002. The following month, Roberts and Moder married in an intimate ceremony at Roberts’ Taos, New Mexico ranch. However, Steimberg had strong feelings for Roberts even after the dust settled.
