Jeremy Irons: ‘I have the natural tendency of a benign dictator’ https://t.co/1c1JztY5l6— Guardian Film (@guardianfilm) March 24, 2016
"“Take abortion,” he says. “I believe women should be allowed to make the decision, but I also think the church is right to say it’s a sin. Because sin is actions that harm us. Lying harms us. Abortion harms a woman – it’s a tremendous mental attack, and physical, sometimes. But we seem to get that muddled. In a way, thank God the Catholic church does say we won’t allow it, because otherwise nobody’s saying that it’s a sin.”
Jeremy also said that..
- Marraige is better for relationships because they're "quite hard to get out of"
- His earlier worry about the legalisation of gay marraige being a gateway to incestuous marraige, was really about tax because he has "developed a life which seems to need a relatively high income"
- The US election is “maybe the end of democracy"
