The Guardian "Outs" Sir Patrick Stewart


X-Men star Sir Patrick Stewart laughed of being called a ‘gay actor’ by The Guardian.


The actor was described as gay in a recent article about actress Ellen Page. The article mentioned that Stewart congratulated Page on Twitter for her recent coming out speech at HRC’s Time To Thrive event. However, it got one fact wrong.

The Guardian piece read, “Gay people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, think Page’s coming out speech is newsworthy because a high-profile and surprisingly politically aware young actress has decided not to play by the rules that so many closeted Hollywood actors are advised to follow if they are to enjoy mainstream success”.

Although it has been amended since, Stewart found the humour in the mistake, tweeting:






Stewart married  jazz musician Sunny Ozell  in September 2013, with Stewart’s X-Men co-star Ian McKellen performing the wedding ceremony.
