Jeremy Irons Compares Gay Marriage to Incest
Jeremy Irons says that he doesn't have "strong" feelings about gay marriage, but the actor does have some controversial and bizarre thoughts.
In an interview with HuffPost Live, the Oscar winner and Borgias star said he's worried that the legalization of same-sex marriage would "debase" marriage and could lead to incest in order to get a tax break.
"Could a father not marry his son?" Irons said, explaining that incest laws wouldn't apply to men since they don't breed.

Irons continued to insist that he was neutral on the subject, adding: "Living with another animal, whether it be a husband or a dog, is great. It's lovely to have someone to love. I don't think sex matters at all. I don't think what it's called matters at all."
