Growing up in the shadow of your famous sister is no picnic for anyone…But Julia Roberts younger half sister, Nancy Motes says her famous sis would make fun of her weight ultimately leading to depression and obesity.”When you’re in a family of very, very exceptionally beautiful people it’s intimidating,’ said Nancy in an exclusive interview with The Sun (via DailyMail). “I think that growing up as Pretty Woman’s little sister has definitely made me try to see the person inside and not the person outside. A lot of my life I felt judged for my weight.” She says Julia would tell her she was overweight and even told her not to follow her to Hollywood when she was younger.
Motes finally got gastric bypass surgery in June 2012. But as just a few years ago in 2010 Julia was still commenting about her weight. Nancy is hoping to make amends with her sister and wants her to come to her wedding.
