Pretty woman Julia Roberts doesn’t seem to get along too well with her siblings.
She was estranged for quite some time from her famous brother, actor Eric Roberts, because she did not agree with his lifestyle choices and even took the side of his ex-girlfriend over custody of his daughter Emma.
Julia Roberts also had a rocky relationship with half-sister Nancy Motes. She did not agree with her sister’s choice of a mate and reportedly flipped out when Motes took photos of Julia Roberts twins.
Roberts accused her half-sister of attempting to sell the photos and then promptly cut her off.
But the problems began long before. Motes discussing her famous sibling told the New York Daily News,
When I was in high school and she was an adult, she would let me know that I was definitely overweight. She would make it quite clear to me and in a not-so-nice manner…My weight has fluctuated my entire life. So i got a lot of criticism from Julia, which was very discouraging for me.
Motes took to twitter after being cut off and send a series of tweets slamming Julia Roberts,
So my ‘sister’ said that with all her friends & fans she doesn’t need any more love. Just so you all know ‘America’s Sweetheart‘ is a B—-!!
Do you want to be a fan of someone so cruel? She’s not even that good of an actress. Happy you totally F—ed with me?
My own family has abandoned me.
Julia Roberts pretty woman or pretty cold
Sadly Nancy Motes is now dead. While the family statement said it is an “apparent overdose,”, Motes may have taken her own life.
Could Pretty Woman Julia Roberts have an ugly, mean-hearted soul like Motes tweets suggest?
Ironically Julia Roberts is now part of a celebrity lineup encouraging others to reach out to people to combat loneliness, in an Oprah production titled Just Say Hello.
