Who Knew Film Director[The Notebook}Nick Cassavetes Was A Homophobic Incest Approving Kinda of Guy?


The Hollywood film director behind beloved romantic drama, The Notebook, has proved himself a true champion of love by admitting he doesn't think there is anything wrong with incest. 
In an interview about his new movie, Yellow - which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend - Nick Cassavetes defended his protagonist's affair with her brother. 
The Alpha Dog director reasoned that since he had no personal experience in the matter, he didn't believe he was in a position to condemn incest and went on to compare it to gay marriage.

After The Wrap described a scene in which the heroine, Mary, goes to visit her brother in prison as 'tender and affecting' and showing  'no judgement of the relationship,' Cassavetes explained why he went that route with the character.
'We started thinking about [incest],' he said. 'We had heard a few stories where brothers and sisters were completely, absolutely in love with one another. 
'You know what? This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want.'

'Who gives a shit if people judge you?' he continued. '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? 
'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.'
The movie took three years to make owing to recurring funding problems and was finally finished with Cassavetes' winnings at the casino. 
Starring ex-wife Heather Wahlquist, the story follows a women addicted to pain-killers who loses her teaching job in Oklahoma. 
Of his decision to add the element of incest, he recalled: 'Something had to happen to this character that was traumatic and beautiful and made her a pariah,' he said. 'She's a wipeout of a mess. But I hope people root for this character, damaged or not.’
