Stupidity and Hypocrisy: Die Hard

Jeremy Irons really, deeply, passionately cares for the planet.

Launching himself as a green campaigner, Irons has revealed plans to make a documentary about sustainability and waste disposal, likening himself to Michael Moore, the controversial film maker, although “not as silly”.

Nor bloated, hopefully.

“One always returns to the fact that there are just too many of us, the population continues to rise and it’s unsustainable,” he said in an interview with The Sunday Times. “I think we have to find ways where we’re not having to scrap our effluent junk and are a really sustainable planet.”

Tucked away in the middle of the article:

Irons, who owns seven houses, including a pink castle in Co Cork, Ireland, believes a new economic vision is needed in the wake of the global financial crisis.

Seven houses! Seven! When I was growing up, my family didn't own a house -- because my dad as a foreign worker in Saudi Arabia wasn't allowed to own property. I've lived my entire life in rented facilities. So, that means that I have, like, infinite moral superiority over Irons in this arena.

Jeremy Irons is now officially silly.
