Is it strange to anyone else that Joshua Jackson's dad actually spoke out about Diane Kruger & Norman Reedus?

Joshua Jackson's dad is breaking the No. 1 rule of celebrity scandals: Stay quiet.

While fans of longtime couple Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger are trying to piece together the confusing gossip about Kruger's potential affair, Jackson's dad has no qualms about speaking out to defend his son's girlfriend.

Last weekend, Kruger and The Walking Dead star Reedus were spotted drinking whiskey and making out in a New York bar. Sounds like a great time... if the man in question is your boyfriend and the paparazzi aren't there to follow your every move.

Still, according to Carter Jackson, one night of indiscretion may not pose a problem for his son. "Basically, I think Diane has been a wonderful influence on Josh, so I wouldn't say anything bad about her. Josh is just, in Hollywood, this is a rare, good kid."

He continued to praise the couple's relationship, saying, "Josh has been raised in a really tough business, and I think he's really a sweet kid, and I think Diane is, too. So you see I'm not going to say anything about my attitude towards the particular incident... I had some wild parties in the Village, that's for sure!"

Does Josh feel the same way?
