Meet Hazel Moder, Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder’s teenage daughter who made her red carpet debut at the Cannes Film Festival 2021
Taking style notes from her superstar mum, Hazel looked relaxed in a butterscotch yellow button-up lace dress and a pair of chunky black Mary Janes. She topped off the simple look with a casual ponytail.
Hazel was all smiles for the cameras as she supported her cinematographer dad, Daniel Moder, at the screening of his new film, Flag Day.
But aside from being a celebrity kid, what else do we know about her?
She has a twin brother
Born on November 28, 2004, Hazel Patricia Moder came into the world alongside a twin brother named Phinnaeus. Their famous parents welcomed them just a few years after the couple met on the set of Roberts’ 2001 comedy film, The Mexican. Hazel also has a another brother named Henry, three years younger than her and Phinnaeus.
She appeared in one of Julia Roberts’ films
Despite making her red carpet debut only recently, Hazel is no stranger to the entertainment industry. The fashionista-in-the-making had a minor role as in her mum’s 2016 romantic comedy-drama film, Mother’s Day. Meanwhile, Roberts revealed on Good Morning America that among her slew of classic films, she can’t wait for Hazel to see My Best Friend’s Wedding.
She has a bright future in ... athletics?
With an award-winning actress mum and cinematographer dad, it is more than possible that Hazel might follow in her parents’ showbiz footsteps one day. However, she is notably active in her school’s sports activities as well. She and her mother have been photographed numerous times at her football games and on her father’s Instagram feed, she’s seen enjoying outdoor activities such as swimming and biking.
She was named one of the “cutest celebrity babies”
In 2006, the hit TV series VH1: All Access included Hazel and her twin in their “Top 20 Cutest Celebrity Babies” episode: her first ever television appearance.
She is the sole heir to Roberts’ “heritage collection”
Another perk of being an A-list star’s daughter is getting your hands on your mum’s vintage couture pieces. Roberts shared with People in 2017 that she is particularly saving her iconic black Valentino column gown for Hazel, which she wore to the 2001 Oscars to accept her best actress award.
“I have this little space in my house that my husband refers to as the heritage collection. Things I go, ‘I can’t get rid of [this], what about Hazel?’” she told the magazine.
