Stephen Colbert on Jeremy Iron's 'strong feelings' on gay marriage

Posted on

While giving an interview to the Huffingay Huffington Post, Jeremy Irons used his lusciously British voice to say that he “doesn’t have a strong feeling either way” about gay marriage — before rattling off a list of his feelings about gay marriage. If they weren’t strong, they were very strange, including this: “Could a father not marry his son? … Men don’t breed, so incest doesn’t cover that. Now if that were so, then if I wanted to pass on my estate without death duties, I could marry my son.”

Let’s all ignore the fact that this is legally impossible and skip straight to when Stephen Colbert makes fun of him in the Report house-style — equally savage and loony. Start the video for the reference to pigs; stay for the reference to wolves.

Take a look at both the HuffPo interview (which begins at 29:50) and takedown below.
