Director Nick Cassavetes

I'm OK with Incest!

9/10/2012 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0910_nick_cassavetesarticleWriter/director Nick Cassavetes supports the phrase "If you can't keep it in your pants, keep it in the family" ... claiming there's nothing wrong with a little incest.

Cassavetes, whose new film "Yellow" features a brother/sister relationship, compared the taboo act to gay marriage while promoting the movie in Toronto this weekend.

Cassavetes explained, "Who gives a s**t if people judge you? I'm not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you're not having kids -- who gives a damn? Love who you want. Isn't that what we say? Gay marriage -- love who you want?"

He continued, "If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody ... except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”

On a related note, here's a photo of Angelina Jolie kissing her brother on the mouth 12 years ago.

I kiss my family in the lips too, I didn't knew I was committing incest. lol I know a lot of families that do it too.

Why just post a photo of Angelina and her brother. Why not Javier Bardem and his mother? They also kissed on the lips at the Oscars. Or Penelope Cruz and her sister? lol

This comment is for all the Bible thumpers, and in what I know and have read EVE was ADAMS sister, unless you all think we spawned out of the ocean. You will all find out in the end that we are all each others brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, and we are ALL ONE human family. Have a nice day.

There should be boundaries to freedom. Never mind morality, but where is the diff. between right & wrong anymore. It`s like we have so ran out of shock factor & story lines that we have to resort into perversion of everything else. There was gay marriage, now this. Give them and inch they will go for a mile & more..This kind of argument is just so lame & it feels like they are trying to make different versions of porno themes to translate into the big screen, to mass mind set & legislated laws.. That is not the world I am looking forward to for the future generations..This shall not be our mark in the history.

So, judging by these poll numbers, 8% of the voters are from West Virginia.

It isn't the same as gay marriage because you are born gay. Incest in nearly every case (in modern society) comes from a screwed up family life. However, it shouldn't be illegal as long as both people are adults. What is morally repugnant and what should be illegal are often two different things.

This is exactly what's wrong with the whole 'gay rights' movement. Next the pedos will be crying about taboos, not being able to help who they love, and more crap about 'equal rights'

Only a place like Hollywood would love the idea of incest... First driving it down my throat that being a white/male/christian/heterosexual is the ABNORM, and being ethnic/metro-homosexual/atheist is the NORM... Folks I'm checking out before the train wreck.... Alllllllll Aboarrrrrrrrrd!!!!!!!

I knew it. Once gay marriage becomes legal, then all these other folks, like those into polygamy and incest, will want the same rights as gay folks.
