It maybe be Prop 8 ‘D-day’ in California – but Irish actor Colin Farrell has already made-up his mind about gay marriage.

The legendary womanizer is going to be his gay brother Eamon Farrell’s best man at a legal wedding this summer, has learned.

The star’s brother is set to marry his partner Steven and his famous sibling has agreed to take part in the ceremony.

Eamon Farrell and his partner will get married in a European city where it’s legal for same-sex couples to get wed.

But not being able to tie the knot in either Ireland or Great Britain has left the groom-to-be both upset and frustrated.

He said: “We have to get married abroad. It’s absolutely terrible. We have to go somewhere legal, which narrows it down to about five countries.”

And he scorned efforts from both British and Irish governments to allow people to cement their relationships through civil unions.

He added: “I want to be able to get married. The Government’s paper on civil unions is only for gay people. If you are straight you can’t have one. So that’s not fair either. If you want a civil union you should be able to do it, if I want to get married I should be able to do it.”
