Julia Roberts won’t go to her sister’s wedding & doesn’t want to pay for it

Julia Roberts

There are some celebrities that would probably make a really great sister — such as Jennifer Lawrence, Mindy Kaling, or Jennifer Garner — and many more who would be positively insufferable to share parents with. I’d dislike it immensely if Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, or January Jones (even though I love her hair) was my sister.

Also on the bad list? Julia Roberts.

It was only a few years ago when the Enquirer reported that Julia made rude and obnoxious comments about her sister’s weight, and it was said that she was “disgusted” by Nancy’s appearance to such a degree that she was rolling her eyes and making terrible comments behind Nancy’s back. At the time of that story, it was said that Nancy was so upset that she wasn’t speaking to Julia at all, but I guess they made up in time for Nancy to invite Julia to be a bridesmaid at her upcoming weekend. Julia has turned her sister down, but it actually sounds like she has a good reason. Here are the details from this week’s issue of the Enquirer:

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts is staying away form her sister’s wedding, a source says, because she hates the groom and doesn’t want to get stuck with the bill!

Nancy Motes — the star’s younger half sister — asked her famous sibling to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming nuptials to John Dilbeck. Julia not only said “no” — she’s even refusing to go as a guest, the source added.

“Julia doesn’t think much of Nancy’s husband-to-be,” revealed an insider. “She’s convinced he’s sponging off Nancy, who doesn’t have that much money in the first place. They moved out to L.A. from Georgia, and John was working at a Panda Express restaurant. But he quit his job after Nancy landed a gig as a production assistant on “Glee.”

John recently made a splash by getting down on bended knee and proposing to Nancy in front of cast and crew members on the Hollywood set of the hit FOX show. Ironically, the source says it was Julia who got Nancy the job by pulling strings with show creator Ryan Murphy, who directed the 45-year-old actress in the film Eat Pray Love.

This is just the latest in a long list of battles between the sisters. In 2005, Julia exploded when she caught Nancy, 37, snapping pictures of her then-newborn twins, Phinnaeus and Hazel, at the actress’ home in Taos, N.M. And in 2011, the two got into a heated fight after Julia made disparaging remarks about Nancy’s weight.

“Now Julia won’t go to her wedding because she’s worried Nancy will try to tap her for more money,” said the insider. Apparently the sisters’ mom, Betty Motes, is trying to play peacemaker and patch up the feud before Nancy walks down the aisle later this year. But the insider said: “Julia told her not to hold her breath.”

[From Enquirer, print edition, May 20, 2013]

I can’t blame Julia for not wanting to be taken advantage of to pay for Nancy’s wedding. Not only is a fancy ceremony not essential, but if Nancy’s betrothed is as much of a freeloader as this story indicates, then Julia is right to suspect that she’d be asked to open her wallet. Sure, Julia has more than enough money readily available to pay without blinking, but I firmly believe that adults should be able to pay for their own nuptials. Parents or siblings can help out if they volunteer to do so, but a bride insisting that someone else pay for “her day” is just childish and wrong.

    I wish I had boycotted my friends wedding. It may have forced her to seriously evaluate her decision to marry that scrub shes with. Hell, she’ld be thanking me now instead of acting like we failed her for not snapping her out of her love-haze. Good for Julia. She has bigger balls than I did.

    • wiffie says:

      It’s funny. in America’s Sweethearts she played the heavy frumpy sister of a movie star. Who knew in real life she was the bitch?

      • Me Three says:

        How do you know she’s a “bitch?” I just don’t get the nastiness directed towards her. We have no clue whether or not she said any of the stuff she’s supposedly said. It seems like all her siblings just want to use her. Her family seems to use her. I would get very tired of it if I were her as well. And, I’d bet she’s done more “lending” of money to them all then we’ll ever know,

        As someone who’s always had a job and been responsible, I’ve been asked for money and help by many “friends” and I can tell you it gets tiring. Especially when it’s the same people over and over and they are in the situation they are because of their own choices.

    • Ducky La Rue says:

      @Sophie – that’s just a no-win situation. If you don’t go to their wedding, they’ll be angry that you weren’t supportive, maybe implying that things would have worked out better if you hadn’t been causing trouble between them. If you DO go to the wedding, and it all falls apart later, then you’ll get the “why didn’t you warn me?”

      I tried (with my sister) to get her to slow down and think about it before getting married. But, aside from that, there’s not much you can do. They’re an adult and it’s their decision.

      Oh, and to keep it on topic with the story: absolutely agree that people should pay for their own wedding. I would attend, though, despite my reservations about the groom.

    • dino says:

      I boycotted my best friends wedding and we have barely spoken since. I was not about to support her marrying a loser who was abusive in every sense of the word and also refused to work. when they had a stillborn child they cremated the baby’s ashes. when they broke up like a year later for a little bit he called her on the phone so she could hear him smashing the babies ashes on the sidewalk.. winner winner eh?

  2. Cirque28 says:

    Julia seems to become more and more sour with each passing year.

    But I agree: pay for your own wedding. And bended knee or not, there’s nothing romantic about a proposal from someone who has no source of income. It’s basically saying, “How would you like to be the lucky little lady who gets to take care of me for the rest of your life?”

    • NerdMomma says:

      I second this! A man without a job should not be proposing!

      • Cherry says:

        That’s a little old-fashioned, don’t you think? Is a man really worth whatever he’s earning? I’d rather marry a good guy with no income (I have a good job myself, thank you very much) than a rich a##hole.

      • Vickyb says:

        Really NerdMomma? Can a woman accept a proposal if she’s unemployed?

      • Dani says:

        Neither men nor women should be thinking of getting married if they don’t each have a job. One income, regardless of how large it is, isn’t enough and even if it is, will generally cause issues in the long run. If you can’t hold down a job you probably can’t hold down a marriage.

      • Vickyb says:

        Dani, I have to disagree. Sometimes one income is enough. Mine is enough at the moment. My husband’s was enough when I was on maternity leave.

        If you’re saying that both people should be employed when they get married, does that mean they have to both work continuously? How many couples can you name where one of those involved wasn’t working (I can think of plenty of successfully married people)? Sometimes it’s choice, sometimes it’s circumstance. What if one of the people loses their job? Again, in this financial climate, I can think of plenty of couples that have been hit by redundancy. How long would it be acceptable to search for an appropriate job within your field, before you worry that your lack of job may soon mean lack of marriage, and you head for a job in Maccie Ds?

      • Susie says:

        To the person that said that “neither man nor woman shouldn’t get married if they can’t hold a job” (I’m writing to you DANI): THIS is by FAR the most ridiculous statement here!
        This country’s GREATEST Generation was raised with one parent at home, and the WORST generation IS being raised with 2 incomes. Do the math! Year after year, it’s just getting worse, but you go ahead, thinking that, you’ll need that cash so your kids can be raised by someone else.
        YOU shouldn’t get married if you don’t trust your partner.

      • Cirque28 says:

        @everyone: I was speaking from my own perspective of receiving repeated proposals from a man who had no intention of ever looking for work. But it’s true– support comes in many forms. If the emotional support had been there (it sooo was not!), it might have changed things.

        There’s a huge difference between “I’ll handle this and you’ll handle that and we’ll build a life together” vs “You’ll build our life and I’ll hang out on the couch playing video games like a moron.”

        PS: Liz Lemon and Dennis Duffy. Nuff said. ;)

      • jwoolman says:

        NerdMomma- if my parents had waited until they were both making gobs of money, neither I nor my brother would exist. My mother actually quit a good-paying job (for the time) after she married so she could handle the household and kids. That was full-time enough and more… Maybe some people today have an exaggerated idea about what they need to raise a family. You don’t need a bedroom for each kid or designer clothes or gourmet food or a MacMansion. And you don’t owe your children a private school education or a college education. If they want to go to college, let them work for it. You can get a good education anywhere. I mooched off mom for four years (free room and board) and worked for my books and clothes, got a scholarship for tuition. My brother got student loans. We walked to school while in college.

        If you’re frugal, you’ll find that having one parent at home all day allows for a lot of savings that can make living off one income feasible. Obviously such a plan can be derailed if anybody has healthcare issues since the American system is so ridiculous, or if the parent drawing a paycheck is no longer able or is missing. That’s why the ideal would be for both parents to have the ability to get a job outside the home as needed or for both to work part-time and trade off. But you really don’t need the gobs of money you may think. And please don’t get your identity all wrapped up in your paying job. You can lose a job for lots of reasons that have nothing to do with your worth. You are more than a job. My mother didn’t have an outside job for many years, but she worked plenty at home and as a volunteer and was certainly valuable to her kids and others.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        If a guy clearly doesn’t want to work, do much of anything, get an education, etc, then you shouldn’t marry him. It’s not the same as someone home raising the kids or being a writer or artist. And the same for a woman. People should be able to be equal partners and be able to pull their weight if need be. My friend married a guy none of us could stand, who claimed he was an artist, but did absolutely no work and just stayed home, watching TV. He finally agreed they could have a child- ONE child- whom he did stay home with, but had her watching TV too. Her parents had to step in and help with bringing the kid to preschool. You KNOW when someone’s crap. I make a little more than my husband, but he works his butt off.

    • testington` says:

      I think she’s always been a giant bitch and just the modern internet era makes it harder for people like her to hide behind their PR bullshit. I remember over 10 years ago hearing stories about how rude and mean she was when she stayed at a hotel a friend of mine worked at.

      • Amanda_SB says:

        +1

        I could say the same thing – about having a friend who worked at a hotel she stayed at and what a b***h she was to the staff. I can also add that I personally worked with her on 2 movies and she is most definitely a nasty, evil, vile woman. I am definitely not a fan. That being said, she shouldn’t have to pay for the wedding and if she doesn’t want to be a bridesmaid, that’s her choice. Let it go. I wouldn’t want somebody that negative in my wedding anyway.

  3. LadyMTL says:

    I’m not a Julia Roberts fan but I can’t fault her for saying no. Just because she’s crazy rich doesn’t mean that she *has* to fork over the cash for her sister’s wedding. And yeah, if the guy is as big a loser as it seems she’s better off staying away.

    • Lucinda says:

      I don’t get where it’s saying she’s being asked to pay for the wedding. It sounds like an assumption she’s making (or an excuse she’s using). I also really dislike Julia Roberts though.

      Honestly, if you don’t like the groom, say your piece and then go to the wedding anyway. It’s your sister for God’s sake. Support doesn’t equal agreement. You go to support your sister and love on her, then you love on her again if you turn out to be right, but you don’t say I told you so and you are thankful if you turn out to be wrong. I think Julia’s gigantic ego is the bigger problem here.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I agree, Lucinda. She could do what a lot of us do when we disapprove of the person our friend is marrying—go to the wedding to show support for your friend–it’s not your wedding & you don’t have to love the groom!

        Julia Roberts has always seemed like a self-centered bitch to me. Has she really made public remarks about her sister’s weight or appearance in general? That would get her uninvited to my wedding all by itself, thanks.

        The Roberts family sounds kinda screwed up. Weren’t Julia & Eric on the outs for years & she didn’t speak to him? That’s all I’ve ever heard about that. I won’t assume anything just from that, but Missy sounds a bit full of herself.

      • Irishae says:

        Agreed–where does it say that Nancy asked her to pay for anything? Rich people are perpetually paranoid about their cash. That’s usually why they have soo much of it. Julia and her sister obviously have a terrible relationship.

        Personally, if I had millions upon millions of dollars you bet I’d chip in for my sister’s wedding, without having to be asked! Also, I’ve tried the ultimatum with my best girlfriend before her wedding and let me tell you–horrible idea. Love is intoxicating. All you can do is be supportive and scream “I told you so!!” later.

      • Thiajoka says:

        Exactly what I was thinking–some big assumptions about the sister and fiance are being made with limited information.

        I consider it within the realm of possibility that Julia Roberts could be such a bitch as to malign the character of her sister and the sister’s fiance by trying to make herself look better. Who the hell wants to take life advice from the woman who single-handedly supplied America with all those broken romance gossip stories for so very many years. Just because Julia is wealthy enough to pay for her own mistakes doesn’t mean she’s got enough good judgment to preach about her sister’s relationship.

      • Emily says:

        This.

        And every time I even dared breathe that maybe a friend’s boyfriend wasn’t the greatest person in the whole wide world, the friend has dumped me, sometimes forever. Women who choose men who are bad enough that their friends feel the need to say something are exactly the same women who get angry when the friends say something.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        I read another story that claims Julia helps her sister out financially already, and they have disagreements surrounding the amount of money Julia already gives her. So that’s why Julia is putting her foot down on paying for the wedding. *shrug*

      • stinky says:

        Emily – Emily – Emily
        HOW RIGHT YOU ARE

  4. paola says:

    I don’t know.. she always seemed such a bitch to me.

  5. PHD Gossip says:

    She keeps wearing the same pair of black sandals.

  6. cat1 says:

    The article does not say anywhere that Julia R was asked to pay – just that she is worried she would be. Traditionally the bride’s family pays, as in the mom and dad, so I feel CB went off a bit there, reading into this…

  7. Anastasia says:

    Julia is married—she can’t be a bridesmaid, anyway, can she?

  8. Kiddo says:

    There is so much discord in the family, it’s not surprising.

  9. Cam e says:

    A married maid of honor is a matron of honor
    Not sure what a regular ol married bridesmaid would be

  10. truthful says:

    while I agree with the financial part, Julia seems to always be a “crabby Patty.”

    I like Eric Roberts the most.

    boy he used to be hot

  11. Lol says:

    well… I can’t fault Julia… especially as it seems she’s still helping her sister out, pulling strings to get her a job. The sister sounds a bit like a freeloader to me who figured she’s got a rich, famous sister, she can pump for money.

    • Micki says:

      Sounds like it doesn’t it?
      Besides I don’t think the sister respects Julia’s privacy priorities (photos of her kids srory).
      I don#t get why the weight thema is such a big deal.I know a pair of sisters who make such snide and bitchy remarks to each other you can only stare…Julia is a majot bitch so I doubt she kept her sister in the dark about her opinion.

      Stll she helped her find a job.
      I find it sad she won’t go to the wedding but it’s her personal decision.
      And there is also the “mute” presure on you to offer to pay “freely”…I’ll resent it too.

  12. Thora says:

    Julia doesn’t want to go because she won’t be the centre of attention.

  13. Wif says:

    She should suck it up and go to the wedding as a guest. She doesn’t *have* to pay for anything other than a gift. Family should support one another, even if their choices aren’t the best, because people get to live their own lives. My best friend married a man I haaaaaaaated, I stood in her wedding (and look miserable in all the pictures) and 20 years later they are still happy. She clearly understood him in a way I couldn’t and over time I grew to see why they work. If I hadn’t attended that wedding I would have regretted it now.

    • bluhare says:

      I’m with you. She should go (unless it’s being taped as a media event) and support her sister. I was maid of honour at my sister’s first wedding, hated the guy, me and my dad made a bet on how long it would last, but we supported my sister because that’s what she wanted and all that would have happened was a big fight with her furious at everyone.

    • Irishae says:

      My best friend basically married the Scumbag Steve meme. I got all bitchy and didn’t go. It ruined our friendship and it’s a huge regret of mine. Julia needs perspective, this is her sister.

      Playing devil’s advocate, let’s say Julia did go to the wedding and there were paps and OMG photos of her were taken from a lense parked football fields away…what harm does that do exactly? When was this woman’s last movie? Good press? I’ll wait. It would do her far more good to go than not! Which headline is better: “Julia supports sister at dream wedding” or “Julia snubs own sister and refuses to attend wedding”?

  14. JL says:

    If she got the sister a job, and the “Groom” is working at Panda Experss then IMHO they don’t need to get married at all.

    They need to grow up, get real jobs and be content with a courthouse marriage by a judge and accept that’s what their lifestyle pays for.

    What next, hey sis the baby needs diapers? We can’t pay our rent…on and on.

    I mean real love doesn’t demand a fancy wedding or any special dresses, reception, flowers or any of it.. do you want a wedding or a marriage?

    • JayL says:

      We don’t even know for sure that this woman & her husband expect anyone to pay for their wedding. It only said that Julia “suspects” they do. That’s not a whole lot to go on.
      And someone wanting their sister to attend their wedding is not asking too much.

      • TG says:

        If Julia suspects they want her to pay for it she probably has years or evidence to back up her suspicions. I despise people who mooch off of others. I couldn’t agree with Bedhead more about adults should pay for their own darn weddings. I have a large family and most of them don’t have much money and I live far away from them so when I gots tried I did it at the courthouse for $100 just the 2 of us this way I didn’t have to feel giult tripped in to paying for my guests gas, car rentals, planes, etc. I didn’t want to hear their bi*tching or lame tongs about not having any money to come. I am with Jilia on this one. Rich people or anyone for that matter don’t like to be used.

  15. kay says:

    but has her sister actually asked her to pay?

  16. Anoni Mus says:

    Looking at the pics it strikes me: Julia Roberts is so plain! She has lost the movie star looks, if she ever really had them.

    • Cazzee says:

      Who was it who said -

      “At twenty, you have the face God gave you; at fifty, you have the face you deserve.”

      Julia’s face is looking very deserving lately.

    • Jayna says:

      She isn’t plain, but she’s just a 45-year-old attractive woman, nothing special. She was never what you would call sexy, but in her younger days she had that coltish quality about her with her long legs, slender. Facewise, she had a real sparkle, an “it” factor. Her smile lit up the screen, beautiful, expressive big brown eyes. That sparkle she had in her 20s is gone as she’s gotten older, which is what made her special.

  17. Debbie says:

    Don’t like Julia but I see no reason to fault her for this. It sounds like she is just trying to protect her sister and her finances which is not bad or wrong.

    Although I am curious what happened to Julia’s pr team, I mean there was a time you never would have heard a bad story about Julia and now they are all you get.

    • Lia says:

      The best PR team can’t save you if you have someone who is actively selling stories to tabloids. And it doesn’t have to be someone close to her. I believe most “sources” are acquaintances who happen to hear bits and pieces of personal info through friends and family

  18. Jayna says:

    Julia had a barbecue and casual, low-key wedding on her ranch. So she isn’t exactly someone who would think an expensive wedding is necessary. I highly doubt her sister asked her to pay or would. I thought she and her sister were really tight. I’m sure Julia has been generous to her over the years if she only has one sister, because the older sister she adored.

  19. maggiegrace says:

    Julia needs some Crest strips for those chompers.

  20. Sugarrbunny says:

    While I agree with not wanting to be stuck with the bill Julia Roberts is a vile human being. Her ‘a low Vera’ shirt when the woman’s whose husband she was sleeping with wouldn’t divorce him fast enough for her. To sleeping with or trying to sleep with every costar regardless of their relationship status to running away with her groom’s best man he day before her wedding to Kiefer Sutherland.

    This is not a nice person. Period. Don’t confuse the roles she plays with her actual character

  21. Ginger says:

    I started to read this with the caveat in mind that Julia can be a first class biatch but found myself siding with her if there’s any grain of truth to this story. UGH! What’s happening? I’m siding with Julia Roberts.

  22. Green Is Good says:

    “A Low Vera”. Enough said.

    Julia Roberts is a C-U-Next-Tuesday.

  23. Dawn says:

    Julia is NOT a nice person. She used her older brother to get a break in show biz and never looked back. She had an attitude because her current husband was married and his pregnant wife wanted to work on their marriage. Her sister should be happy not to have her there since she thinks the world revolves around her and money.

  24. JayL says:

    Julia should not be casting judgments on other peoples’ relationships. She has had her own issues.

  25. MAC says:

    I skipped my aunts wedding. My entire family was against it. All of her friends were too. She did it anyway. The guy controls her entire life. If you want to talk to her you have to call him. Good luck seeing her. She makes all the money & had it before the marriage. She is an adult I just stay away from it.

    I don’t know about paying for your own marriage. I have seen a few times where parents or close friends gave the money as a gift. But i wasn’t demanded or even asked for. I payed for my own.

  26. dorothy says:

    Yeah well Julia has such a stellar track record with morals etc… considering she had an affair with her now husband while he was married.

  27. ReelChildofHell says:

    That cackle of hers would be enough for me to want to keep her away from any social gathering that includes alcohol.

  28. Chicagogurl says:

    Go Julia. God I wish I could say no to my BIL and future SIL’s wedding. She’s a pot-stirrer, self-centered and rude. She was a complaining bitch to us our entire wedding day and 2 years out and all she talks about is this frickin wedding she’s having (and she’s not working). They assumed my husband and i would stand up in their wedding (we are moving out of state and going through a financial rough patch) – never even asked. Between the two of us, it’ll be about $600 for outfits and she still expects a present. In fact, she’s already told me that they’d like cash to help pay for their honeymoon and that she’s expecting everyone to give them cash for the “fund”. We got nothing from them. Then my MIL (who is the greatest woman) is talking about a shower for her neice next month and SIL starts talking about how she wants us to throw her a shower, themes, etc. and again, could we ask people for money to help pay for the wedding. I would love to say count me out but my in-laws would take serious offense. Anyone ever dealt with a rotten SIL?

    • Fancyamazon says:

      I’m with you. I don’t think that Julia should have to support her sister’s choice of husband, and if she has been asked to pay money for the wedding then I really don’t have any problem with her saying no. Just because you have more money than your sibling does not mean you are obligated to cater to their every lifestyle decision, especially if they are living above their means.

      And I absolutely HATE it when I am asked to give money as a wedding gift in the invitation. It makes me not want to attend, let alone bring a gift. It is rude. If you can’t afford your honeymoon then wait a while to have it.

      When I bring a gift to a wedding, it is sometimes money if I know that the couple can really use it, or a gift if they do not. But I don’t like to be told to bring one at all.

    • Lana says:

      My SIL lured my brother back to her with a baby that wasn’t his yet she insisted it was (the baby was already born and is the spitting image of the real dad – they still haven’t told the poor girl), treated him and us like dirt for years then recently decided to leave him but announced she was coming back not long after because she didn’t like living on just her income – we suspect she was having an affair on him at work seeing as she started taking off her rings every morning. Still, my idiot brother took her back so it’s his fault now.

  29. serena says:

    I guess she isn’t in the wrong this time, I would do the same as Julia. It’s unreasonable to pay for your sister’s wedding.

  30. KellyinSeattle says:

    I think Julia is generally disliked for her “A Low Vera” activities….seems she really did a number on her hubby’s ex wife..I do like that she stays out of the limelight , for the most part, and keeps her kids out of the public eye, too. When she married Danny, I thought , this will never last..but so far it’s still going. But her teeth and gums….wow! I think she was a real beauty at one time, and she’s okay now…Her niece, Emma, looks a lot like her (and probably has the attitude, too)…

    • TG says:

      I think Julia’s marriage has lasted because he worships her she is the star some celebs Ned to be number 1 and that is probably what is going on there though she does seem to be very low key but I agree the “a low Vera” shirt was bad. I guess I like Julia anyway

  31. Shelby says:

    Have never understood her appeal

  32. Patrice says:

    Am I missing something here? What does showing up and supporting your sister-as a bridesmaid or even just a guest-on what is likely to be one of the most important days of her life have to do with paying the bill and/or feeling that her fiance is a free-loader? Does Julia actually believe that not showing up is going to somehow make Nancy stop loving the guy or something??

    Only Julia Roberts and her (allegedly) painfully overinflated ego could think that being asked to be a bridesmaid (a huge honor BTW) is the same thing as being asked to “open her wallet.” This story makes no sense.

  33. judyjudy says:

    I won’t judge. Sister stuff can be very complicated sometimes.

  34. emma says:

    but it’d be so easy just to attend the wedding and not pay for anything…

  35. JP Ladue says:

    “This is just the latest in a long list of battles between the sisters. In 2005, Julia exploded when she caught nancy, 37, snapping pictures of her then-newborn twins, Phinnaeus and Hazel, at the actress’ home in Taos, N.M.”

    Since when is taking pictures of your Niece and Nephew something to be “caught” doing like it was illegal or a no-no?

    Ah, Ghoulia. Never change. I’m sure her family was just thrilled with Danny when Julia decided to marry him. I’m sure they were thrilled when she bolted from her wedding and hooked up with the best man. Sit your judgmental bony butt down, Julia Roberts!

    Nowhere in that piece did I read where there was actual evidence Nancy asked her for money. Of course, Ghoulia would think someone wants something from her. Shrews often think the world revolves around themselves. See Paltrow, Gwyneth

      Her personal life and attitude were front and center for years, up to and including the way she ended up with her current husband. The altar dumping was just one of the first chapters. And based on that summary of how snotty she acted at a party a couple of years ago tells me she likely hasn’t changed much. She is probably the type who only acts nice to males. I think she’d be a less than nice sister or friend to any woman.

  37. Palermo says:

    Almost everything I have ever read about her makes me not like her at all. She has definitely lost whatever looks she might have had.

  38. Mario says:

    Everything I’ve read about Julia makes her seem like a mean spirited, selfish bitch. It’s really disappointing, I used to love her as an actress but when you find out how horrible a person is in real life it makes it hard to watch them act in a film. Julia doesn’t speak to her brother Eric either which is odd considering how he helped get her career started before his turned into a train wreck. Maybe someone should lock Julia, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez in a room together and see how long it takes for them to rip each other to pieces.

    • Christin says:

      I just posted above that Julia would likely be a less than nice sister or friend to a woman because I think she is one that brightens up only around males. However, her disdain and years of disliking Eric suggest she’s equal opportunity on the sibling front.

    nuptials. the word is nuptials. that is all.

    I think she is horrible. Where did it state her sister even asked for her to pay? She just makes that assumption. Yes Julia, everyone is jealous of you and will expect you to pay because you have so much (said sarcastically). Ironically Julia has nothing if she is THAT paranoid and egotistical. There is a psychiatric diagnosis for that. And if you treat your sister that way, then I can’t imagine how you treat everyone else. I am totally convinced now that the BLIND ITEM last week was her. A nannies nightmare with verbal abuse and unpaid overtime. Everyone dreads her.

  41. Christin says:

    We’ll probably be hearing and seeing more from her as the release date for the Meryl movie approaches. No doubt she’ll be trying to capture the limelight again.

    The movie in reference was covered here a few months ago, with GREAT comments:

    Only on a horse farm would she be considered beautiful.

  43. kim says:

    wait, where does it say that julia’s sister is “a bride insisting that someone else pay for ‘her day’”? all i get from this story is that nancy asked her sister to be a bridesmaid and julia shut her down. AND then mom asked julia to please play nice and julia told her to stuff it. who knows what this guy is like? so he was a waiter; that’s his big crime? we don’t know why he left his work — if he was let go (the job market HAS sucked) or what. why is julia broadcasting this ugly stuff? maybe she’s a little sensitive, being the breadwinner in her own little nuclear unit. frankly, i think julia’s tacky as a dime-store purse.
