The Hysteria actor, who is gay, was asked on ITV1's This Morning about his recent claim that he "can't think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads".
"Listen, the good news on this is I'm not applying for any sort of public office," Everett said.
"I don't want to be an MP, I don't want to be in the council, I'm just an individual with my own life and the things that I want to do myself."
He continued: "I'm not against anybody doing anything. I think the reason that's great about living in England, is we can do more or less what we want.
"Science moves on, there are all sorts of new things that we are able to do - we'd be fools not to do it.
"I'm not one of those people who wants to say, 'Oh no, you can't do that, we've got to pull the clocks back'.
He added: "Just I, personally, feel like that. But it doesn't mean to say... I have lots of gay friends with children, I have lots of gay friends who have got married, I've been to lots of gay weddings, but I'm not big into marriage straight or gay to be honest.
"I'm very out of kilter with the rest of the world, I realise, but you know, I'm just an individual, I'm not trying to sell anything and I don't want to upset anyone and I'm not trying to have an official opinion about anything."
