William H Macy Called Daughter’s College Application Process ‘Stressful’ Months Before Admissions Fraud Scandal

The Wrap Tuesday, 12 March 2019 ()
William H Macy Called Daughter’s College Application Process ‘Stressful’ Months Before Admissions Fraud ScandalWilliam H. Macy’s comments about his daughter’s college application from several months ago resurfaced on Tuesday following news of his wife Felicity Huffman’s arrest as part of an alleged admissions fraud scheme.

“We’re right now in the thick of college application time, which is so stressful,” Macy told Parade magazine in January, discussing his oldest daughter.

Huffman was one of 46 people arrested on Tuesday, with authorities accusing the “Desperate Housewives” star of paying $15,000 into a bribery scheme that hired entrance exam administrators to cheat on behalf of prospective applicants.

According to an affidavit, Huffman paid “to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter.” The document added that Huffman “later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her youngest daughter, before deciding not to do so.”

Macy was not identified by name in the affidavit or charged.

The couple’s older daughter Sofia, 18, is a student at Los Angeles High School of the Arts and an aspiring actress, according to Macy’s interview.

“I am voting that once she gets accepted, she maybe takes a year off. God doesn’t let you be 18 twice,” he said at the time. “I know from casting, if you need a 25-, 26-year-old actress, there are a lot of them out there and they’re really good. But if you need a 15-, 16-year-old actress, it’s tough. Sofia looks young. I think this is an opportunity for her. But it’s just my opinion, and we’ll see what she wants to do, what Felicity thinks and how the chips fall.”

“My daughter Georgia, she’s interested in politics, political science and pursuing that. She’s in a very academic school and killing it,” he said.
