Hollywood beauty JULIA ROBERTS has been stunned by a scathing television attack - from her estranged brother ERIC. Struggling actor ERIC ROBERTS claimed his sister was useless in the hit movie ERIN BROCKOVICH - even though she's up for a Best Actress Golden Globe next month (11MAR01) for the performance.
Eric, 41, insists that the world's highest paid actress - she gest $22.5 million (£15 million) a film - has become "too big for her panties". Speaking on radio "shock jock" HOWARD STERN's TV show, Eric whined, "I got her first role for her - but she's turned her back on me for years." (TM/WNTST/MCM)
