That time that web site thought Patrick Stewart was gay
At least Patrick Stewart has a decent sense of humor.The former “Star Trek: the Next Generation” star was misidentified as gay by the Guardian in an article about “X-Men” co-star Ellen Page’s recent coming out.
“The third paragraph originally said, ‘Some gay people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, think Page’s coming out speech is newsworthy.’ This should have read, ‘Some people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart,’” a statement from the newspaper read.
Stewart, who married longtime girlfriend Sunny Ozell in September, took it in stride, posting to Twitter, “It makes for a nice change. At least I didn’t wake up to the Internet telling me I was dead again.”
