LOS ANGELES: Julia Roberts' half-sister Nancy Motes says that the actor used to bully her for being overweight when they were younger.

Motes, who once weighed nearly 300 pounds, insists that Roberts used to tease her mercilessly about her appearance.

"When I was in High School and she was an adult, she would just let me know that I was definitely overweight,"  quoted Motes as saying.

"She made me feel incredibly hurt and very sad," she added.

According to reports, Motes had also undergone gastric bypass surgery in June 2012.

Julia Roberts was not in Freedom Writers, that was Hilary Swank. It would be nice of Roberts to comment on this story, as she is such a huge public figure and bullying is a serious issue.
