"Shameless" star William H. Macy's responses to a series of random questions asked during an interview with Men's Journal are beginning to pop up after his wife Felicity Huffman was charged in an elite college admissions scam that led to dozens of arrests last week.
Fans began pointing out the irony of Macy's answers after learning the actor's wife was allegedly connected to the nationwide scandal.
During the interview, Macy was asked to share the "best advice" he's ever received.
"Never lie. It’s the cheapest way to go. Lies cost you a lot, and they’re never worth what they cost," Macy told Men's Journal at the time.
He also revealed the success to his more than two-decade marriage to Huffman: communication.
"Never lie. It’s the cheapest way to go. Lies cost you a lot, and they’re never worth what they cost."
"Sooner or later you’re going to have to talk about it. My wife likes to talk, but I’m not a fan of talking because talking leads to communication, and from there it’s a slippery slope to feelings, and then the next thing you know, you’re living in your life. Nobody wants that," Macy said.
Macy was then asked to discuss the "human qualities" he despises the most.
"Dishonesty. Self-delusion. Lack of character," responded Macy, before slamming President Trump.
Dozens of people blasted Macy's answers, painting the actor as a hypocrite after his wife was accused of paying $15,000 disguised as a charitable donation so her daughter could take part in an apparently rigged college entrance exam.
"As the kettle said to the pot," one Twitter user replied to Macy's past interview.
"I bet he is singing a different tune now," another suggested.
"Whoops! When your words come back to bite you in a big way," a third added.
Court documents stated that a cooperating witness met with Huffman and Macy at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he "controlled" a testing center and could have someone secretly alter her daughter's answers. The person told investigators the couple agreed to the plan. The "Desperate Housewives" star was arrested on Tuesday before being released on $250,000 bond. Macy has not been charged.
