Julia Roberts is breaking her silence regarding half-sister Nancy Motes' death in February.
"It's just heartbreak. 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."
The interview was conducted March 1st, just days before the Oscars—so the star was dealing with a lot all at once.
Nancy died of an apparent drug overdose on February 9th, leaving a grief stricken Julia and family to deal with the passing. The actress continued with the mag, explaining how the unit handled the tragedy:
"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."
There was no mention in the piece of the controversy involving Nancy's alleged suicide note proclaiming her hatred of the Pretty Woman star….
So we may never know Miz Roberts' thoughts on the matter, or if the letter was even real.
We're just glad Julia and family are dealing with their emotions head on. They continue to be in our thoughts.
