Patrick Stewart’s Awesome Response To Mistakenly Being Outed

CelebDragRace - Patrick Stewart finalAlthough we have always fantasized that Patrick Stewart might be gay, we long ago came to terms with his heterosexuality. Sure, he’s a sophisticated, sensitive actor who’s not above a little musical number, but his heart belongs to ladies.

But, whoops, the Guardian mistakenly identified him among the gay people who offered support to Ellen Page. “Some gay people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, think Page’s coming out speech is newsworthy,” the British paper wrote.

They later corrected the mistake, but when the Poynter Institute noted the gaffe, Stewart himself chimed in.

Maybe the reporter was just confused by Sir Patrick’s frequent association with Sir Ian? The two are as adorably chummy as platonic friends can be. And now if you’ll excuse us, we have some Picard/Gandalf slash fiction to write.

      WTH? Come on! Yeah, he’s straight and so is that old queen who played the part of Frasier. If he’s straight…then so is Ricky Martin.

      You can always tell how comfortable a man is in his sexuality when he is incorrectly outed by how he reacts to it. Compare Stewart to Jackman.

      I feel like I have a non-sexual crush on this guy. The encyclopedic knowledge of Shakespeare, the rich baritone voice, and the self confidence to publicly poke fun at his own sexuality – all under a Starfleet uniform.

      @patricklee5150: Kelsey Grammer is definitely straight, so yes – they’re both straight.

      @jwrappaport: I believe the word you are looking for is ‘homosocial’.
