July 19, 2019 (Los Angeles, CA) – ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT caught up with Angela Bassett and Patricia Arquette at a press day for Otherhood, where they candidly discussed co-star Felicity Huffman's college admissions scandal, and how they've lent her support during this difficult time.
"Well, I left her a message because I do think she's, I mean, I haven't spoken to her, but I feel that she's sincerely truly sorry and feels she made a humongous mistake," Arquette said. "I think she dealt with it the best way that you can deal with it, but I know she's probably carrying a lot of shame and guilt and all that stuff."
"That’s all I can really do, is just leave her a message and say, 'You know, I think you handled it the best you could've and I know you feel terrible about this,'" she continued. "We're thinking about you."
Bassett shared similar sentiments, telling ET, "I think she's handling it like a grown-up person. She's handling it like a grown woman."
"It's a brave thing and a courageous thing," she added.
Arquette continued to praise Huffman throughout our interview. The actress said, "We all make mistakes in life."
"I know we're in a time where we hold people accountable and there is a great part of that and we need to do that," she explained. "But the other part, that we are human, we're not perfect people. I know I don't want to be held, you know, that I'm supposed to be a saint."
