One of America's biggest box-office draws, the Academy Award-winning actress' movies have earned over $2 billion in cash over the years, from Pretty Woman to Erin Brockovich.
Worth over $250 million, her salary per film is now in the $20 million range, making her one of the largest power players around.
Sidestepping the 80's "Brat Pack," the hitmaker's early role in Mystic Pizza was followed with an Oscar nomination for Steel Magnolias, and the prostitute-with-a-heart-of-gold Disney hit Pretty Woman.
Before settling down into her now relatively quiet lifestyle, Roberts grabbed media attention for her high-profile Hollywood love life.
Previously engaged to Kiefer Sutherland, she broke it off in the early 90's to run away with Jason Patric. She eloped with Lyle Lovett, divorcing him in 1995. She's also dated Matthew Perry, Daniel Day-Lewis, Liam Neeson and Benjamin Bratt, but is now happily and quietly married to cameraman Danny Moder. They have twins, Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus Walter.
