TAOS, N.M. (AP) _ Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts married her cameraman boyfriend Daniel Moder early Thursday at her 40-acre estate outside Taos.
The wedding marks Roberts' second trip down the aisle. The star of ``Runaway Bride'' and ``My Best Friend's Wedding'' was married for 21 months to country and western singer Lyle Lovett.
The darkness of the cool New Mexico morning concealed the details of Roberts' wedding but provided the perfect backdrop for the midnight ceremony.
``Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder married during a midnight ceremony before family and friends at their home in New Mexico,'' Roberts' publicist, Marcy Engelman, told The Associated Press about an hour after the ceremony.
Engelman declined to give any details about the couple's nuptials, the bride's attire or the guest list, saying, ``This is all we're going to release at this time.''
A big white tent was seen on Roberts' estate Wednesday afternoon and the town was crowded with photographers and reporters, some of whom camped outside her gate.
A pitch-black sky was dotted with millions of sparkling stars as music and laughter could be heard coming from Roberts' home into the early morning hours.
The rumors heated up this week when The Daily Mail of London reported that 50 guests were being flown from Los Angeles to New Mexico for some sort of celebration at Roberts' estate. The paper said George Clooney, Roberts' co-star on ``Ocean's 11,'' was to be among them and that invitees were to wear white linen.
``Pretty Woman'' (1990) remains Roberts' biggest hit, with a domestic gross of $178.4 million. Her other $100 million hits include ``Notting Hill,'' and ``Erin Brockovich,'' for which she received a best-actress Oscar in 2001.
Roberts' love life has been tabloid fodder for years. She broke up with actor Benjamin Bratt last year after dating him for nearly four years. He went on to marry actress Talisa Soto in April.
Roberts broke up with Kiefer Sutherland in 1991 on the eve of their wedding. She also was linked to Jason Patric, Dylan McDermott, Matthew Perry and Liam Neeson.
