Jeremy Irons on gay marriage: 'Could a father not marry his son?' Published: April 5, 2013

Academy Award winning actor Jeremy Irons said Wednesday that while he doesn't have much of a strong opinion either way on same-sex marriage, according to an interview with The Huffington Post, he believes it poses interesting questions, including whether allowing same-sex marriage would open the door for interfamilial relationships.

"Could a father not marry his son?" Irons asked HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps.
