Despite being an A-lister, Julia's wedding back in 2002 was incredibly low-key. Not only did Danny propose with an emerald engagement ring worth a reported $4,000 - which is very modest when it comes to celebrity engagements - nobody even knew their wedding was happening until they got there.

The couple had known each other for less than two years when they got married at her ranch in Taos, Mexico. When they first met, Julia was dating Benjamin Bratt and Danny was married to Vera Steimberg.

But both relationships fizzled before they then became a couple. Julia insisted: "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."
