The “X-Men” stars attended the premiere of “Mr. Holmes” in London, England on Wednesday night (June 10) and Patrick grabbed Ian and kissed him on the mouth to show his support for McKellen’s latest project. Stewart’s wife Suzy Ozell looked amused at the gesture and the shutterbugs went nuts.
This Friday (May 23) “X-Men: Days of Future Past” invades theaters nationwide, and this morning (May 19) James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart did some last-minute promotional duties on “Good Morning America.”
Given that they both play Professor Xavier (in different time periods), McAvoy admitted he studied Stewart’s past work in order to be as accurate as possible.
The “X-Men” costars, who have been working together on the Broadway production of “No Man’s Land” and “Waiting for Godot,” posed for a variety of tourist-style photos that ended up on Stewart’s Twitter account.
