All the way back in 2013, Jeremy Irons was asked about his thoughts on same-sex marriage during an interview with HuffPo and the anus slit on his brain shat out a gurgling stream of WHAT. Jeremy mouth farted up some shit about how gay marriage shouldn’t be called gay marriage, because that’ll lead to fathers marrying their sons for tax purposes. That sounds like the plot of the sequel to “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” that nobody asked for. The interviewer brought up the fact that a father couldn’t really marry his son due to a thing called incest laws. Jeremy then said that a father getting with his son isn’t incest since they can’t make a baby together. A picture of Jeremy Irons’ mind ended up on the side of millions of milk cartons since he obviously lost it. He later tried to clean up those messy statements. Cut to today….
During an interview with Out Magazine, Jeremy’s 29-year-old son Max Irons, who kind of looks like a morph of Daniel Radcliffe and Eddie Redmayne, was asked about his dad’s words. Max wasn’t really familiar with what his dad said, so he had to look it up a few months ago.
“I remember thinking, You don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re thinking through a problem out loud. I know my father, and his views are similar to mine: As long as you don’t harm anyone else, what you do and who you love are nobody’s business. He has since clarified as far as I understand, and truth be told, if you pushed him to explain what he was talking about, I don’t think he’d actually know.”
Translation: Shit my dad says!
Out wasn’t done and gave Max the full transcript including the part where Jeremy said that gay marriage may lead to Zales selling an Incest Is Best collection. Max’s only response was, “Well, my father hasn’t proposed to me recently.”
This is the dark part of nepotism. Nepotism is great, because jobs land in your lap and you can always count on your parents’ friends to put you in their movies. But it’s all easy fun and easy games until some interviewer asks you about the stupid shit your famous dad said two years ago. Well, at least Out Magazine didn’t bring up that mess of an interview from 2005 where Jeremy said that children under 16 are “immensely attractive” and his son was a “god” at the age of 12 and that “parental love is sexual.” If Out brought that up, Max would’ve quit civilization and spent every waking moment searching the land for a real-life vampire to glamour that quote out of his brain.
