Julia Roberts Reacts to College Admissions Scandal, Calls It Sad [Video]

With stars like Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman accused of bribing their kids’ way into college, many celebrities have publicly reacted to the massive university admissions scandal. Among them is Julia Roberts, who recently voiced her own disapproval of the scam.

“That to me is so sad. Because I feel, from an outsider, that it says a little bit, ‘I don’t have enough faith in you,’” the 51-year-old said during an interview on ET Canada Live to promote her new movie, Ben is Back.

Roberts went on to explain how she and husband Danny Moder have tried to raise their own three kids to be independent and self-sufficient. “[We] are very aligned on that front, I think that we live a very normal experience with our children,” she said, adding that “obviously we have advantages that we didn’t have as children. But I think that’s the unique part of it, coming from the childhood that I have.”
