JeremyIronsPhotoNew comments from Jeremy Irons are causing a massive backlash today, after the Oscar winner proposed that new laws allowing gay marriage could lead to parents marrying their children.

In an online interview with Huffpost Live, the 64-year-old actor suggests that allowing gay marriage could debase marital law and lead to a father marrying his son, all so the son could avoid paying inheritance taxes. The full quote is as follows:

“I don’t know, I mean, it’s a very interesting one, that, and I don’t really have a strong feeling, but I see that what we had in England, which was not marriage, but a union you could make if you were gay if you wanted to make a civil partnership. Same rights, not the name. It seems to me that now they’re fighting for the name and I worry that it means somehow we debase or we change what marriage is. I just worry about that. I mean, tax wise it’s an interesting one because you see, could a father not marry his son? It’s not incest between men. Incest law is there to protect us from having inbreeding, but men don’t breed, so incest wouldn’t cover that. Now if that were so, that if I wanted to pass on my estate without death duties, I could marry my son and pass on my estate to him. I think the lawyers are going to have a field day with same sex marriage. I just guess they are. I don’t have a strong feeling either way, I just wish everybody who is living with one other person the best of luck in the world, because it’s fantastic. (I’m) also a man who has a dog that he loves. Living with another animal, whether it be a husband or a dog is great. 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.”

So basically, Irons just completely shrugged off gay marriage as a way to beat the system, and compared it to having a pet?

So far, Irons’ remarks have provoked outrage from gay rights advocates and supporters everywhere. No comment has been released from the actor in response.

Nick Lachey Rewrites Hit 98 Degrees Song Amid Coronavirus Quarantine

Published

on

This video will remind you of two things: Nick Lachey is actually a gifted singer. And at age 46 he is still quaran-FINE!

Picture it. The year is 1998 and the boy band craze is at its peak. You turn on the radio. Your ears perk up as you hear the four beautiful men of 98 Degrees sing about the torture of having to let down their side pieces so they can try to be true to the girlfriends that love them. The word “coronavirus” has never even been uttered. It was a simpler time.

Fast forward to 2020 when it seems like you can’t turn on the tv without some sort of news break interrupting your scheduled programming to warn you about the latest dangers of the viral pandemic. With the spread of the virus ever growing, celebrities have been taking to social media to urge fans to isolate themselves so we can all stay safe and healthy. Nick Lachey, 98 Degrees heartthrob and host of the new dating show Love Is Blind, is the latest Hollywood star to jump on this bandwagon.

Lachey took to Instagram to debut his updated rendition of “The Hardest Thing,” the boy band’s certified gold single. “Yeah, it’s the hardest thing we’ve ever had to do. To stay stuck in our house, just watching all this bad news. It’s the hardest thing we’ve ever had to try. To stay six feet apart when we go outside,” the blue eyed beaut sings. “Nothing to do, no sports on TV. Washed my hands so much that they started to bleed. Damn this quarantine. It’s the hardest thing we’ve ever had to do. But in the end it’s worth it. Together we will get through” he continues. The video ends with Lachey reminding fans to stay safe before being jumped on by his enthusiastically adorable son.

Danny DeVito Passionately Urges New Yorkers To Stay Home…And Twitter Agrees!

Published

For the love of Danny DeVito, stay home!

The world is in a dark place right now and I am not sure how much more bad news we can handle. That’s why when I saw Danny DeVito’s name trending on Twitter I froze. Our great nation could very well crumble if anything bad was to happen to such an icon right now. With extreme trepidation I clicked on the social media link and was relieved to see that good ol’ Danny boy is just strumming up hype because he is passionately urging New Yorkers to stay home.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Governor Andrew Cuomo has been driving New Yorkers to stay home and has taken every precaution short of shutting the state down completely to help prevent the virus from spreading. Because New Yorkers can be hard headed, it doesn’t hurt to have some famous friends reiterate your message. Big names like Lala Anthony, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller have all made appearances on Cuomo’s social media pleading with New Yorker’s to heed the governors warning. Only one celebrity was able to make it to Twitter’s trending page however and that was none other than Danny DeVito. DeVito’s message is simple…stay home! In the two minute video, DeVito reminds fans that it’s not just up to the elderly to isolate themselves. “Young people can get it and they can transmit it to old people and the next thing you know – I’m out of there” says the actor. We must save him!

Twitter went into a frenzy with many users agreeing that we need to stay home for Danny. One user wrote “When Danny speaks, I listen.” Another passionately wrote “If you idiots kill Danny DeVito I SWEAR TO GOD.” One promoted DeVito from the icon status I previously awarded him and said “WE GOTTA PROTECT WORLD TREASURE DANNY DeVITO.” 

Take a look at the video below and for the love of the newly minted national treasure, stay home!

Amy Adams Has Finally Joined Instagram And She Is Melting Our Hearts!

Published

on

The world has endured raging brushfires, rising floodwaters and a viral pandemic…and that’s just in these three short months of 2020. From every devastation, however, a hero emerges…and today that hero is Amy Adams.

Amy Adams has finally joined Instagram and not just to post selfies or pictures of her dog…although a cute dog pic can definitely brighten anyone’s day! Instead, Amy has joined Instagram to partner with her friend, Jennifer Garner, on Save With Stories, a place to watch celebrities read children’s stories. The goal from these posts is to attract donations to raise funds for Save The Children and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry. Amy outlines how the donations will  “make sure that families know how to find meals when schools are closed, support mobile meal trucks, food banks and other community feeding programs, provide educational toys, books and worksheets, and support out-of-school-time programs to help kids make up for lost time in the classroom.” These efforts are especially needed right now as school closures can affect nearly thirty-million children.

In the nearly 8-minute video, Amy reads The Dinosaur Princess, a story written by her daughter Aviana Olea Le Gallo. Amy also flashes pages from the story which are artfully illustrated by her husband, David Le Gallo. I hope melting of the heart is not a symptom of the coronavirus because mine is officially a puddle!

I am all for being social media positive while being socially distant! Check out Amy’s first Instagram post below!
