Julia Roberts Half Sister Nancy Motes Suicide. Whos To Blame?

It is also during this time the younger Nancy Motes would turn to abusing opiates. An abuse that she was warned to put away. Motes had told in the past that she was known as Julias fat little sister and that she had been taunted by Julia Roberts over her weight, leading to Motes to undergo drastic surgery in June 2012 in the hope that her older sister, Julia would finally approve of her. Never mind if Nancy Motes had come to approve of herself. It makes me feel incredibly hurt and very sad, Motes had told in an interview. When youre in a family of very, very exceptionally beautiful people its intimidating. Motes, who described herself as an awkward child who was bullied at school, could not compete with the success of her very pretty and very popular sister. She once told: When I was in high school and she was an adult, she would just let me know that I was definitely overweight. She would make it quite clear to me and in a not so nice manner. Julia did not want to see me go down that path [of acting] So I just got a lot of criticism from Julia, which was very discouraging for me. After graduating from high school in 1995, Motes auditioned for roles in Hollywood while working as a waitress.
