Julia Roberts is speaking out on the apparently drug overdose of her half-sister, Nancy Motes, with whom the actress had a tumultuous relationship.

"It's just heartbreak," a tearful Roberts, 46, told the Wall Street Journal in an interview conducted March 1, just one day before this year's Academy Awards.

"It's only been 20 days. There aren't words to explain what any of us have been through in these last 20 days," she said in the interview, released today.

"It's hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead."

Nancy Motes died inside her Los Angeles apartment of an apparent drug overdose on February 9, the star's family announced the following day.

In the interview, Roberts did not address rumors that Motes left a suicide note criticizing Julia, and instead focused on the grief surrounding her death.

"You don't want anything bad to happen to anyone, but there are so many tragic, painful, inexplicable things in the world," said the Academy Award winner.

What do Barack Obama, Nicole Kidman, and Justin Bieber have in common? They've all made a sex tape?

They're all left-handed, making them quite elite for more than just politics, movies, and music.

Between 7 and 10 percent of people worldwide are left-handed. Why does that matter?

Well, because quite a few of Hollywood's elite also happen to be southpaws, and an uncanny number of politicians around the globe are too, for that matter.

Take a look at this list of 21 left-handed celebrities to see the one thing that unites them all:

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.

Being left-handed is commonly associated with intelligence and creativity, not to mention those terrible ink smears along the side of their dominant hand.

Seriously, what's a leftie have to do to get the right kind of desk around here??

Despite their minority status, left-handed people are more likely to excel in music, math, and sports; based on scientific studies and anecdotal evidence, that seems to hold true. 

Just don't expect Bieber to be a poster child for International Left Handers Day.

Julia Roberts' half-sister Nancy Motes left a suicide note before her death, according to reports, and it looks to be focused on the Academy Award-winning actress.

"There was one page to her mom, telling her how much she loved her, and one page apologizing to [her fiancé John Dilbeck]," a source tells the N.Y. Daily News.

"There were three pages of rantings that her sister drove her to do this."

Dilbeck's brother, Conner, has been slamming Roberts on Facebook.

He says Nancy Motes "was driven to Take her Life" by the "Pure Cruelty of her Sister, Julia Roberts (yes Ms. Pretty Woman herself)" who did "everything in her power to Ruin her and my brothers lives."

Motes personally went off on Roberts on Twitter before she died.

Julia Roberts' late half-sister Nancy Motes, who died last weekend, appears to have called the Oscar winner out in a series of Twitter posts last month.

Motes termed Roberts a “b!tch” and “hag” as she vented, illustrating that their rocky relationship likely never healed prior to Motes’ untimely death.

Nancy Motes was found dead of an apparent overdose Sunday. In Tweets dated January 19, and written under the handle @Dabbs76, she allegedly wrote:

“So my ‘sister’ said that with all her friends & fans she doesn’t need anymore love. Just so you all know ‘America’s Sweetheart’ is a B—-H!!’”

She later added, “Do you want to be a fan of someone so cruel? She’s not even that good of an actress. Happy you totally F--ked with me?”

Clearly, she had an axe to grind, justifiably or not. Three days later, Motes, a professional dog walker, said that that her “own family has abandoned” her.

More than a few media outlets have recently been speculating that Julia Roberts is pregnant with her fourth child, based on some recent pictures.

She's not. Nor is she planning to be. Bump watch? Off.

The 46-year-old Roberts, mother to 9-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and 6-year-old son Henry, is done having children. She said is herself.

"Have you thought about adding more to the group?" David Letterman asked the star this week. "Oh, sure," Roberts replied, flashing her megawatt smile.

"Any chance?" Letterman prodded. "No," she respoded flatly.

Cross Julia Roberts pregnant off your celeb news wish list.

The acclaimed actress said she will be spending Christmas at home with the kids and her husband Danny Moder, "counting fingers toes and blessings."

Is Julia Roberts pregnant again? The speculation is swirling after she was spotted in Los Angeles with her stomach hanging out of a baggy sweater.

Julia was with her husband, cameraman Danny Moder, at his parents' home in L.A., when the infamous picture was snapped an the rumors began.

The couple has three children, and at age 46, one would assume she's not expecting any more, but at the same time, the picture speaks volumes.

Check out the image from this week at the end of the photo slideshow (which includes some from her past pregnancies) here and see for yourself:

She certainly wouldn't be the first star to get pregnant in their early or even mid-40s. Halle Berry, Uma Thurman, Mariah Carey and Madonna all come to mind.

Roberts also looked a lot different when seen in public earlier this fall.

Julia's rep has not commented on the topic, so until then, we ask:
