Hollywood superstar or not, Julia Roberts isn't forgetting the little people. The Oscar winner recently was spotted at a Los Angeles-area youth basketball game on the arm of steady beau Daniel Moder. Apparently, Moder's nephew plays on one of the local co-ed teams, and Roberts was there to help cheer on the aspiring Kobe Bryant.
But it wasn't a member of the paparazzi who blew the erstwhile Pretty Woman's cover it was her former Mystic Pizza co-star William R. Moses, whose 9-year-old daughter, Remi (with ex-wife Tracy Nelson), plays for the opposing team. "I'm the assistant coach and I was sitting there, and I look across [the court] and Julia was sitting there with her boyfriend," the 42-year-old actor recounts to TV Guide Online. "They were there watching his nephew.
"It was the first time I had seen her in at least 10 years," adds the onetime Falcon Crest heartthrob, who played basketball while a student at the University of Southern California. "She looked great... She looked really happy. We said 'hello' and gave each other a kiss. She's really something. It was really good to see her."
Moses who last year celebrated the birth of his second daughter, Grace (his first child with new bride Sarah) admits that while working opposite a then-19-year-old Roberts in 1988's Pizza, he knew that a star was about to be born. "She was young and fresh and clearly going places," he recalls, "and was really a tremendous force to reckon with even at that age."
