Forget the hunks in front of the camera. As Julia Roberts made clear in her surprise July 4 wedding to cameraman Daniel Moder (left, whom she met on the set of The Mexican), it’s the guys behind the lens who make the best husband material these days. After all, Anne Heche hitched herself to camera operator Coleman ”Coley” Laffoon last September, Holly Hunter was married to Steven Spielberg’s longtime director of photography Janusz Kaminski, and E!’s Revealed host Jules Asner is dating director Steven Soderbergh, who shoots many of his own films.
