Julia Roberts Weighs In On The College Admissions Scandal
Julia Roberts took a firm stance against the actions of those involved in the college admissions scandal.
The “Pretty Woman” actress weighed in on the scandal while promoting her new drama “Ben Is Back” in the U.K.
Roberts and her husband have three kids together, 14-year old twins and an 11-year old son. They try to keep the experience relatively normal for their kids, Roberts said.
“My husband and I are very aligned on that front, I think that we live a very normal experience with our children. Obviously we have advantages that we didn’t have as children,” Roberts told ITV. “But I think that’s the unique part of it, coming from the childhood I have. You do need to know how to make your bed and do your laundry and make one meal. These are important life skills.”
“They have to run their own race,” she continued. “They have to have their own experience.” (RELATED: Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Loses Sephora Collaboration Amid College Admissions Scandal)
