Julia Roberts Opens Up About Nancy Motes’ Death

Julia Roberts Opens Up About Nancy Motes' Death

In a new interview with the “Wall Street Journal” magazine, Hollywood actress Julia Roberts has opened up about the untimely death of her half-sister Nancy Motes.

“It’s hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead. You don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone, but there are so many tragic, painful, inexplicable things in the world.

“But [as with] any situation of challenge and despair, we must find a way, as a family. It’s so hard to formulate a sentence about it outside the weepy huddle of my family.”

So sad! Hopefully she is resting in peace.

Julia Roberts Opens Up About Sister’s Suicide

Back in February, Julia Roberts’ half-sister, Nancy Motes, committed suicide.  At the scene, along with drugs used in the apparent overdose, there was a note found insinuating tension between the famous starlet and Motes.  In a new interview with WSJ Magazine, Julia Roberts addresses the loss of her sister and how the family is coping with the tragedy.

When asked about her sister’s death, Roberts’s face tightens as she pauses and looks toward the ocean. “It’s just heartbreak,” she says, tearing up. “It’s only been 20 days. There aren’t words to explain what any of us have been through in these last 20 days. It’s hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead.

“You don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone, but there are so many tragic, painful, inexplicable things in the world. But [as with] any situation of challenge and despair, we must find a way, as a family,” she continues before straightening up in her chair. “It’s so hard to formulate a sentence about it outside the weepy huddle of my family.”

One of the things that surely has helped Roberts through this time is her near-daily meditation. “Meditation or chanting or any of those things can be so joyous and also very quieting,” says Roberts, who has introduced the practice to her children. “We share and just say, ‘This is a way I comfort myself.’”

Roberts is promoting her upcoming role in the HBO film, The Normal Heart, directed by Ryan Murphy.  Sad family tragedy.

Julia Roberts Avoids A Home Intruder in Malibu!

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals B3

Everyone’s favorite Pretty Woman, narrowly avoided a crazed fan entering her property in Malibu back in January.  The intruder of Julia Robert’s home was promptly tossed head first into a cactus by her super awesome security team.  Radar Online reports that her ex-US military guards:

“One close neighbor, who saw the incident, explained to Radar: “It was about one in the afternoon when four sheriff cars came rushing down the road, they were white ones, which means it’s the chief in the area, they’re not messing around.  I thought someone had been murdered or there was a fire.”

“By the time I got there, the man was just crawling out of the cactus bush outside her property and the security guards were talking to the police.  One of them was boasting saying: ‘I’m an ex-Marine and I just picked him up and threw him head first into the cactus.’

Apparently, the creeper ran off and wasn’t caught by the police.  How scary!  For her but also because she has children.  I love that they threw him into the cacti.  That’s pretty amazing.

Ellen DeGeneres took an Oscars selfie we’ll be talking about for years

ellen oscars selfie

Ellen DeGeneres helmed the Oscars last night, and besides the award winners, there’s one thing everyone’s been talking about: her ultimate superstar selfie with some of the biggest names in the business. As you can see above, Ellen managed to get everyone together for a nice little picture. We’ve got our Jennifer Lawrence, our Bradley Cooper, a little bit of Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey, a cut-off Jared Leto, a sneaky Lupita Nyong’o and her brother Peter and even some Angelina Jolie!

The picture popped up on Ellen’s Twitter page last night and actually crashed the site momentarily as everyone furiously reblogged. It’ll be hard to beat that selfie, that’s for sure! As Ellen herself posted, “If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever.”

Julia Roberts Goes Blonde… Say it Ain’t So.

The 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals

America’s Pretty Woman has gone blonde just in time for this weekend’s Oscars.  You can see the picture here.  The August: Osage County star was spotted on Friday, walking around Los Angeles with her newly dyed locks.

This is Julia Roberts‘ first sighting since the news broke of her half-sister’s suicide earlier this month.  Nancy Motes left a long note blaming her famous sister and the tension between the two for her unhappiness. Roberts cancelled several appearances following the loss of her sister, though she is expected to attend the Academy Awards, where she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress.  (I think it’s going to Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle…)

Julia Roberts is a stunner with whatever hair color she has.  That said- I truly hope she has a different stylist helping her dress for this weekend than she did for the SAG Awards.  This pink ensemble is a bit tragic.
