Robert De Niro Takes on College Admission Scandal: ‘You Can’t Do That’

On Wednesday, actor Robert De Niro was joined by producer Jane Rosenthal as they announced the lineup of the 18th Tribeca Film Festival.

“Extra” spoke with De Niro, who weighed in on the college admission scandal that has been dominating headlines, with Lori Loughlin and Felicity Hoffman due in court Wednesday. He said, “I feel very bad for them, but I don’t understand how you do that. I didn’t do it with my kids… One of my kids did not make it, they just did not make it academically, and they didn’t go — sorry. My other one did… You don’t want your kid ever to think they got in in a way that’s not totally proper and correct — you can’t do that.”
