Hollywood director Nick Cassevetes came out in favor of incest in an interview with The Wrap.

The director of the popular romance "The Notebook" was out promoting a new film that features an incestuous relationship between a brother and sister.

“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?” Cassavetes said. “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.”

"This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want," he added.

Cassavetes film "Yellow" debuted at the Toronto Film Festival. It does not yet have a distributor.
