William H. Macy had no problem with nepotism and the two daughters in Hollywood long before his FBI wife Felicity Huffman was charged with her alleged involvement in an elite college scam.
He recently unearthed an interview with Entertainment Weekly. The "shameless" actor was shameless about favoring his family if they ever ventured into show business.
"You can help your children in this business, and nepotism works, and I have no problems with it," Macy said, assuming his daughters would go to acting.
He added, "If I can give them a leg, I would absolutely do it. It's a great way to earn a living." That's really it. "
The quote is the latest in a series of interviews that have persecuted Macy after the college admission bribery. He spoke recently with Parade about the seemingly grueling application process, which had passed through his eldest daughter.
"She's going to college … We're in the middle of the college's application time, which is so exhausting," he said in January.
"I agree that it will be accepted once, maybe it will take a year, God does not let you be twice 18 … But it's just my opinion and we'll see what she wants to do, what Felicity thinks and how Chips are falling. "
He also told the Men's Journal for his February issue The best life advice he ever got was" never to lie. "
" It's the cheapest way, "said the actor. "Lies cost you a lot, and they're never worth what they cost."
Although Macy was not charged or named in the college admissions case, his wife was among more than 30 defendants allegedly paying up to $ 6 million in bribes to ensure that their children were enrolled in elite schools. Huffman is being sued for allegedly making a $ 15,000 donation to a fake charity for her older daughter to cheat the SAT.
After a recent court case, she was released on a $ 250,000 bond.
