Patrick Stewart's Perfect Twitter Reaction To 'The Guardian' Outing Him As Gay

By Dustin Rowles | Celebrities Are Better than You | February 20, 2014 | Comments ()


Last week, in writing a piece about why Ellen Page coming out shouldn’t have been a big deal, a contributor at The Guardian inadvertently identified Patrick Stewart as one of Page’s gay supporters, which was troubling, I’m sure, to only Patrick Stewart’s new wife, Sunny Ozell. More troubling were the dashed hopes of thousands of gay men when The Guardian corrected the piece.

Patrick Stewart, to his credit, took it in stride.

After all, how could he be gay? He has straight friends!

Of course, he does spend a lot of time with Sir Ian McKellan, who is gay.

Oh, well. That answers that, then. It’s too bad, though, because if you could catch gay, I know plenty of gay men who wouldn’t hesitate to cough all over Patrick Stewart.

    He's not gay, he even had an affair with an overweight asian chick.

  • StefJam

    Hey, I'm a straight guy, and he still sets my phaser to stun. I'd definitely run a level 3 diagnostic on his primary power couplings.

  • crackblind

    A couple of months ago I mentioned to a friend that Sir Ian had married Sir Patrick and my friend said he thought Sir Ian was seeing a hot younger guy. I explained the joke (McKellen performed the ceremony) and my friend was shocked that Stewart was straight. Seems a lot of people do think he already caught the gay.

  • Dennis Albert Ramirez

    maybe the guardian never saw those adorable videos of patrick stewart giving his lady acting lessons

  • You'd think Sir Ian would have let him go if he knew there was a chance they could become the cutest gay couple ever?

  • BlackRabbit


  • Sara_Tonin00

    I've never seen a man eat so many chicken wings! (haven't checked yet; anyone eat me to it?)

  • bastich

    Maybe the Guardian writer had just watched "Jeffrey"? I'll admit that Stewart had me sold.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I believe this would be an appropriate place to point out Sir Patrick's script ideas:

  • What makes this better is the knowledge that Stewart really did ask for more action scenes for Picard in the TNG run.

    So whenever I see him toting a phaser rifle in First Contact, I imagine him in a scene like this, but talking about busting caps in fools. It brings sunlight into the darkest of days.

    EDIT: That smiling nod he does at the mention of female nudity should have won him ALL THE AWARDS. ALL OF THEM.

  • PerpetualIntern

    This remains one of my favorite things ever.

  • Classic

    Seriously can we crown him something in the US? I feel like we need to crown him

  • Helo

    This is why Picard >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Kirk.

  • Wrong.

  • Helo

    Picard is Professor X, Kirk is TJ Hooker. Come on. Those Priceline commercials are an embarrassment to the Enterprise.

  • Guest

    Stewart >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Shatner? Yes.

    Picard > Kirk? No.

  • JustOP

    Maybe, but we can all agree on one universal truth.
    Rikers Beard>>>>>Riker>>>>>>>Picard/Kirk

  • Helo

    Who are these "Stewart" and "Shatner" persons you speak of?

  • kinoumenthe

    Well played, dear sir or madam or other.
    Well played.

  • Helo

    Sir on the streets, madam in the sheets. Just doin' what I can.

  • emmalita

    I really want to steal this.

  • Stephen Nein

    It's the showtunes. It's always the showtunes. Jim Kirk wouldn't be caught dead in Pirates of the Penzance, because he's too busy being Horatio Hornblower-y.

  • BWeaves

    Yeah, but Shatner really thinks he can sing. He put out an album. He's sung in movies. AAAAAAAAAAAAH!

  • thatsmrsnyder

    As if there needed to be another reason.
