Here's Jeremy Irons creepin' everybody out, again. A little more than a month after suggesting that women should be totally cool with playful pats on their butts, Irons took a break from his busy schedule of not being in any quality movies since, like, The Lion King (unless you count Kingdom of Heaven?) to insinuate that legalizing gay marriage will make it so that fathers and sons will start shacking up. Take it away, Jeremy:

"Could a father not marry his son?" Irons asked HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps. Irons argued that "it's not incest between men" because "incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don't breed," and wondered whether same-sex marriage might allow fathers to pass on their estates to their sons without being taxed.

But, Irons didn't stop there. Oh, no. He had to bring the whole animal thing into it because of course he did.

"Living with another animal, whether it be a husband or a dog, is great," he said. "It's lovely to have someone to love. I don't think sex matters at all. What it's called doesn't matter at all." [Huffington Post]

Ugh. In case you missed the entire news cycle over the course of the past few days, Irons isn't alone. Here's Jon Stewart, on Wednesday's episode of The Daily Show, making fun of people who equate bestiality to homosexuality.
