Listen, Patrick, buddy. You know we’re all big fans of your work, as well as your hilarious social media presence and your many home videos of your new foster dog. But listen to me very carefully: WHAT ARE YOU DOING. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
To be fair, there actually is a reason Patrick Stewart looks like this (although he can look however he wants, he’s Patrick Stewart); it’s actually an image from last year when he dressed in drag at a screening and panel discussion for his TV show Blunt Talk. Jeez, imagine getting all dolled up and thinking you look pretty dang hot as a gender presentation other than your own, and then finding out later that you actually looked exactly like someone who everyone hates. It’s like if I started occasionally dressing as a man in 2014, and then a year later realized I bore a strong resemblance to Martin Shkreli. I don’t know I’d be able to handle that.
Luckily, Patrick Stewart is much more confident as a person than I am, and is clearly taking the comparisons in great stride. Who knows, maybe there’s an Saturday Night Live cameo in it for him? Just saying, Kate McKinnon can’t do everybody in Trump’s cabinet at the same time.
