Eric Roberts, once a well-known actor, experienced a decline in his career due to his destructive habits and womanizing. As a result, he found himself cast in lower-quality films, which is disheartening considering his undeniable talent.
Coming from a family with a background in creative arts, with a director father and an actress mother, Eric held his younger sister Julia in high regard. However, their relationship suffered when their parents separated.
Eric pursued acting in the UK and returned to Hollywood with great aspirations. Starting with minor roles, he eventually achieved a breakthrough after a motorcycle accident left him with a distinctive facial scar.
He excelled in portraying “bad guy” characters and gained considerable popularity. Enjoying the glitz and glamour of stardom, Eric’s personal habits and relationships posed challenges for him.
Julia also entered the realm of Hollywood in pursuit of her own success, and Eric initially supported her. However, their relationship became strained over time.
While Julia’s career flourished, Eric found himself accepting nearly any role to sustain his desired lifestyle.
Their disagreements escalated when Julia sided with Eric’s former partner in a custody battle involving their daughter.
This created a profound divide between the siblings, despite Julia’s efforts to maintain a connection.
Nevertheless, Eric managed to establish a strong bond with his daughter, who has since become a renowned actress in Hollywood.
