Julia Roberts, Lyle Lovett

Julia's low profile went out the window in 1993 when, at age 25, she secretly married country singer Lyle Lovett after dating for just three weeks. The two first met after appearing in “The Player,” although they did not share any scenes together. At the time, Lovett was in a relationship – in fact, he and his girlfriend were hoping to meet the actress during filming! – but soon enough, he and Julia were head over heels. Then on June 25, during a weekend break from shooting “The Pelican Brief,” the odd couple threw together a last-minute wedding in just 72 hours in Marion, Indiana. Fellow celeb Susan Sarandon served as a bridesmaid and Sarandon's daughter Eva Amurri was a flower girl. The affair was jaw-dropping to both fans and his conservative Southern family. Julia’s $2,000 slip dress was so thin, “You could see her belly button!” one of Lovett’s relatives complained to People magazine. Worse yet, the bride was also barefoot! Just 21 months later, Julia and Lovett called it quits.
