Vera Steimberg Moder – Biography, Facts About Daniel Moder’s Ex-Wife

Actors and actresses are known to look their best, or worst, depending on the character or situation they are portraying on set.

This is the role Vera Steimberg Moder has played in several films and TV shows and she is known as one of the best in her capacity as a makeup artist.

Having started on a low key with a lot of ups and downs, Vera has dedicated her life to making sure other people, especially the youngsters, get the opportunities they need to push them higher in life.

Vera Steimberg Moder – Biography

1973 was the year Vera was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but her exact birthdate is not given. Her childhood and family background, as well as educational achievements, have not been shared by the makeup expert either. She, however, revealed that she went after her dream job in her mid-20s when she left home for Los Angeles. Subsequently, she approached Hollywood stars to secure a job as a makeup artist. Evidently, she was good enough to impress bigwigs like Madonna and Eddie Murphy who hired her. She has gone on to work with the latter on several of his movies including Dream Girls, Dr. Dolittle 2, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, Daddy Day CareThe Haunted Mansion, Norbit, A Thousand Words and The Nutty Professor. In the latter, she takes most of the credit for the transformation of Murphy into the titular character who is an exact opposite of the actor.

From working with Eddie Murphy, Vera Steimberg Moder’s artistry spread across the streets of Hollywood, leading to more jobs. She has notably worked with Zoe Saldana in a lot of movies including The Losers (2010), Colombiana (2011) and The Words (2012). She wasn’t left out in the two recent box office blockbusters – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), and Avengers: Infinity War (2018).

Facts About Daniel Moder’s Ex-Wife

Relationship with Daniel Moder

They might not be in the best of terms currently but Vera Steimberg and Daniel Moder were once married to each other. They met on the set of one the movies she worked on – he was the cameraman at the time and they soon hooked up and ended up married in 1997. Five years of marital bliss wasn’t enough to stop Moder from looking at other women among whom is Julia Roberts. Unfortunately, Vera discovered this in a magazine, thanks to paparazzi. Daniel met Julia on the set of the film The Mexican in 2000. The attraction between them was so intense that it didn’t matter that Moder was still married to Vera and Roberts was in a relationship with actor Benjamin Bratt.

Divorce and Controversies

With trouble in their paradise, divorce papers were served and within the period of finalising it, Julia threw a massive shade at the makeup artist by wearing a T-Shirt with ‘Vera go home’ printed on it. Like that wasn’t enough torment, it was also rumoured that the actress forked out half a million dollars from her drool-worthy net worth which she offered Vera Steimberg Moder as motivation to get her to sign the divorce papers faster. She was apparently in a hurry to take Vera’s husband away. Nevertheless, this claim was never confirmed or refuted by both parties.

The troubled marriage officially ended in 2002 and in the same year, Moder got married to Roberts and they have been together since then, living with their three children. Vera had predicted that Roberts will suffer the same fate she went through at Moder’s hands but that is yet to come true.
