Russell Brand sounded off on same-sex marriage in a HuffPost Live appearance this week.

Touching on controversial marriage equality statements made by Jeremy Irons and Bill O'Reilly, the 38-year-old comedian and actor tells host Josh Zepps, "It's silly to legislate bigotry."

"Let people be married to each other if they want to," Brand noted. "People are too entrenched in fear."

The star got even more candid when Zepps asked if he'd been mistaken for being gay himself.

"I once masturbated a man to the point of orgasm in a public bathroom, but it was for a television program," he confesses in the video below, before clarifying: "I was just young and on drugs."
