Julia Roberts Talks About Half-Sister's Overdose for First Time

Julia Roberts Talks About Half-Sister's Overdose for First Time

Julia Roberts looks breathtakingly beautiful on the cover of WSJ. Magazine‘s May 2014 issue.

Here is what the 46-year-old The Normal Heart actress had to share with the mag:

On the tragic 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.”

On what it means to be a ‘celebrity’ today: “I don’t consider myself a celebrity, [at least not] how it is fostered in our culture today. I don’t know if I’m old and slow, but there seems to be a frenzy to it.”

On starting a family after working 18 years: “By the time we had kids, I had accomplished things and felt secure about that part of my life. I was so joyful moving into the family phase of my life in a sincere way.”
