Julia Roberts Weighs In On College Admissions Scandal

March 18, 2019


Everyone in Hollywood is talking about the college admissions scam because of Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman's involvement. 

The latest celebrity to comment is Julia Roberts. She was asked about the situation while doing international press for her movie "Ben Is Back", where she plays a mother trying to help her son who is struggling with addiction.

Roberts said, "to bring the college situation into the mix, 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. I feel that, in this story, this mother is trying to say, 'I have so much faith in you, I have both of our faiths until you can find the faith in yourself again.'"

She was one of many who have addressed it. Over the weekend Selma Blair, Jim Carey and even Danielle Fishel made posts about it on their social media.
