Vera Steimberg is a famous Hollywood make-up artist, having worked for top actresses like Zoe Saldana. She has established herself as one of the most prominent make-up artists in the Industry.

Vera is also popularly known for once being married to cinematographer Daniel Moder. The Argentinian make-up artist was born in 1973 in Buenos Aires.

The Scandalous Spilt Involving Julia Roberts

The relationship between Steimberg and her ex-husband Daniel Moder ended horribly. Their breakup was the talk of the town at the time, and even to this day, their split makes it into everyone's celebrity scandals list. It's because their separation involves Julia Roberts.

Julia Roberts came into the picture of their relationship in 2000. They met in a movie set of Brad Pitt's The Mexican. It didn't take long for Julia to start developing affection toward him. She was also in a relationship at the time with Benjamin Bratt.

Daniel started liking her shortly after, and he eventually divorced his wife in 2002. The relationship between Julia and Daniel became an even bigger talk as both of them wed in the same year. They tied the knot in July 2002 in New Mexico.

With all the speculations, Julia denied that she wasn't the reason the two broke up. She said that he sorted his relationship while she sorted hers before they decided to take their relationship to the next level. She said:

He sorted his whole thing out, separate and apart from me, and I sorted my life out, separate and apart from him. I think that’s the only reason we were able to ultimately fall in love with each other and be together.

Her Stance on Diversity & Inclusion

The issue of diversity and Inclusion has been a hot topic for a while. Steimberg has made it very clear her stance regarding it. She approves of this idea and believes it is the standard that should be set in movies.

Oscars Academy a while back implemented the change in their association. They invited new members to join them; fortunately, Steimberg was one of them.

Vanity asked her about the new set of practices, to which she said:

The perpetual exclusion of underrepresented groups is an indignation that deserves this type of attention. Our voices have not fallen upon deafened ears, and it’s been a long time coming. I’m excited to see them turn a new leaf and look forward to the positive impact this will have.
