However, one person not happy with the fact that everyone knew about it before she had a chance to announce it, and that one person is Zoe herself!

America's Sweetheart, no more!
The Julia Roberts we all know and love apparently has another side to her.
A much meaner and more dark side!
Julia's half sister Nancy Motes claims Julia used to make fun of her weight so much that she eventually couldn't take it anymore and received gastric bypass surgery.
"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.’"
Julia helped Nancy a bit with her career by getting her a production assistant job on Glee, but soon after, she became depressed, and got a little heavier - which Julia made fun of again.
That's when the half sister underwent the surgery. She now weights 155 pounds which is about half of what she used to weigh.
Regarding her relationship with Julia - she said:
“I think we’re both trying to change our opinions of each other. It’s a work in progress, it’s not going to be fixed overnight, nor do I think it’s going to be fixed by me just getting skinny."
Nancy's personal life is going well for her though. She's due to be married next spring.
Maybe Julia and her will make up soon, so they can make the wedding a family affair!
Although who would want such a critical person in their life anyway? Sounds like Julia needs to get some sensitivity training… or you know, just needs to learn how NOT to fat shame others!
