Months after the death of her half-sister Nancy Motes, Julia Roberts opens up to WSJ magazine about her grieving process.

"It's hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead," the 46-year-old star said. "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."


Roberts' sibling passed away in February at age 37 of an apparent drug overdose. She was the youngest sister of both the actress and her actor brother Eric Roberts, 57.
