Jeremy Irons Gay Remarks: Mocked by Stephen Colbert

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Earlier this week, Jeremy Irons' gay marriage comments - musing on whether this would lead to incestuous situations in which fathers married their sons in order to avoid estate taxes - received major backlash.

But not from Stephen Colbert!

The Comedy Central host stood up for Irons, first by defending his view that "living with another animal, whether it be a husband or a dog, is great," by explaining:

"See? He's cool with whatever. A sexless marriage with a wife, a sex-filled marriage with a dog."

By quoting Irons, he assured viewers that as long as you say you don't have a strong opinion at the start... and then conclude by wishing everyone the best... you can say anything you want in between!
