New York: Julia Roberts` half-sister, Nancy Motes , who is the daughter of the star`s mum Betty Lou and step dad Michael Motes, has revealed that the actress used to regularly taunt her about her weight problems.
Motes told the New York Daily News that she felt incredibly hurt and sad when her sibling used to make sure that she never forgot about her weight.
Motes, who once weighed in at almost 300 pounds, said that the years of mental torment pushed her to have a gastric bypass surgery in June 2010 and she has now slimmed down to 155 pounds.
The production assistant on the hit show `Glee` is now hoping for reconciliation with the actress.
Motes asserted that they are now both trying to change their opinions of each other and it`s a work in progress.
