Ricky Gervais: Irresponsible Parents Should Be Sterilized

Ricky Gervais: Irresponsible Parents Should Be Sterilized

British comedian Ricky Gervais is proposing a new method for population control: sterilizing the “stupid” people, UK’s Times Online reports.

The 48-year-old star of The Office says too many children are born into poverty and unfit situations.

It’s not too many people, it’s too many people with nothing, too many unwanted children, too many people who are poor and struggling, as opposed to too many people. If they all had a good quality of life, no one would complain. What there is, is too many useless people. Too many people who shouldn’t have children.”

Gervais’ solution involves imposing a limitation on who should be allowed to breed. “Yes, based on … stupid, fat faces,” he said. “If there’s a woman in leggings, eating chips with a fag in her mouth, sterilize her.”

Another example of irresponsible parenting: “brainwashing” by forcing religion upon one’s kids, said Gervais, an outspoken atheist.

Is Gervais a hypocrite? He is childless and has been with his partner, producer and novelist Jane Fallon, for 25 years. He said they decided against having children because it would be “too much hassle. We just didn’t fancy dedicating 16 years of our life to it,” he said. “And there are too many children, of course.”

What do you think of Ricky’s bold statements?

    Naomi Watts & Her Bundled Up Boys

    Naomi Watts bundled up her two adorable boys – Sasha, 2, and Kai, 1 – while she ran some errands around New York City on Monday (February 1). Dad, Liev Schreiber, was not spotted with the group.

    The 41-year-old King Kong star recently opened up about raising boys.

    Oh yeah, there’s a lot of testosterone. And I’ve got two male dogs. I know — I’m desperate. In Australia, all my girlfriends, we come together and take up a lot of space.”

    The busy mom-of-two has four movies set for release this year: Mother and Child, Fair Game, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger and Dream House.

    Dave Grohl: Fatherhood Has “Changed Everything I Do”

    Dave Grohl: Fatherhood Has “Changed Everything I Do”

    Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl recently told TIME magazine that his foray into fatherhood has definitely left him a changed man.

    “I used to tour nine months of the year,” he explains. “Now I don’t like being away from my kids for more than 12 days.”

    He goes on to say that his life as a father is definitely reflected in his music:

    It’s changed everything that I do. When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.

    Dave and his wife Jordyn Blum Grohl are parents to 3 ½-year-old Violet Maye and 8-month-old Harper Willow. The couple will celebrate their 7th wedding anniversary this summer.
