Although he is best buds with another Sir who is gay, Sir Patrick ain’t. Though I’m sure plenty of gay men wish he were. 😉 I’m glad to know that Sir Patrick is the kind of man who takes it all in stride.
In a column for The Guardian, Jane Czyzselska celebrated Ellen Page’s coming out, trumpeting three cheers for her public disclosure and cited Sir Patrick Stewart as an example of a gay actor who praised the “Juno” star for her bravery — one problem, the Star Trek actor isn’t gay. Oops!
‘”Some 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,” Czyzselska wrote. Stewart has been married to jazz singer Sunny Ozell since September 2013.
