Julia Roberts, noted champion of moms, has broken her silence on the college admissions scam starring Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman. It’s a story that’s rocked the entertainment industry and drawn reactions from John Legend to David Mamet, and now it’s official: Julia Roberts is sad. When asked about how the scandal reflects on the lengths mothers go to, Roberts implored us to think of the children. “That to me is so sad,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Because I feel, from an outsider, that it says a little bit, ‘I don’t have enough faith in you.’” Roberts went on to explain that even though her kids have advantages, she’s made an effort to teach them important life lessons, like how to make their beds and “cook one meal.” Actually, that’ll look great on a college resume.
