Has Julia Roberts — who’s been known to love ’em and leave ’em before — dumped beau Benjamin Bratt?
New York magazine reports that Roberts is giving the former Law & Order star the cold shoulder and that he hasn’t been to see her once on the set of her latest film, The Mexican, which is shooting in, you guessed it, Mexico, though Bratt was relatively nearby, shooting Miss Congeniality in Texas.
A source tells the magazine’s “Intelligencer” column, “At this point, they haven’t seen each other in months. It’s not necessarily over, but it’s certainly hit a crisis point.”
Encounter With Old Flame
No one will ever let the Runaway Bride star forget her former jiltin’ ways — she famously threw over fiancé Kiefer Sutherland for Rush star Jason Patric — and look with whom she’s been spotted again. Yep, Julia and Jason were just photographed by the Star tabloid hugging in a Los Angeles park, with Patric giving her a “full kiss on the lips” when they parted. Heck, that’s just Hollywood-style friendliness, right?
A spokeswoman for Patric says, “The only woman in Jason’s life is Christy Turlington,” his supermodel girlfriend of many years.
Julia’s rep insists that her client and Bratt are “still together … and very happy,” and also says that stories of a breakup are “absolutely untrue.” Bratt’s rep has refused to comment.
However, a source tells MSNBC columnist Jeannette Walls that this time it’s not Julia who’s having trouble committing. Says the insider, “Julia wants to get married. Benjamin isn’t as committed to the relationship. He wants to spend more time with his family in California.”
