Liar, liar, pants on fire! William H. Macy went OFF on liars prior to the college admissions scandal. In an interview with Men’s Journal magazine, the 69-year-old praised his wife, Felicity Huffman, while slamming dishonest people.

“Never lie. It’s the cheapest way to go. Lies cost you a lot, and they’re never worth what they cost,” he told the outlet in February. When asked: “What human qualities do you most despise?” the Shameless actor fumed, “Dishonesty. Self-delusion. Lack of character.”

Macy has publically stood by his wife’s side during court dates this past week. “I married very, very well,” he boasted at the time. “It’s great fun for me to watch Felicity. I love the way she mothers our daughters. And her career — I find myself getting lazy and slowing down and losing my drive. My wife is doubling down.”

The Desperate Housewives star, 56, and Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin were indicted on Tuesday, March 12, on charges related to a nationwide cheating scam, In Touch previously confirmed. According to court documents, there were arrest warrants granted on March 11 for Loughlin, 54, and Huffman for “conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.” Huffman, in particular, is alleged to have paid $15,000 to a purported charitable contribution in order to have her eldest daughter’s SAT scores increased.

Prior to her indictment, Huffman posted a blog post on her now-deleted parenting site What the Flicka? warning against lying. “You think you’re so smart and sneaky and while you will get away with it a couple of times — maybe even more times than not — at some point you’re going to get cold-hard busted,” the post, which was not written by Huffman, read.

As for how Macy handles regret? “Like the flu — you let it run its course,” he remarked to MJ. Foreshadowing? Sure sounds like it!
