In a world of imminent doom and existential dread, the beacon of light that is the love shared between actors Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart gives us hope.
Two interviews dropped Wednesday featuring Stewart describing how he and McKellen became inseparable and it’s the dictionary definition of adorable, to be honest. With one of the most well-known bromances in Hollywood spanning 20 years, the Picard star told both Wired and Playboy about his “love” for McKellen and no, you’re crying, OK.
“Gay men have played a part in my life as colleagues and friends,” Stewart said to Playboy. “But none so significantly as Ian. I love him and I’m in love with him. So is my wife, and it’s mutual.”
