You may have heard that Patrick Stewart recently got into a tiff with British comedian James Corden at the Glamour Awards. Stewart took a lot of heat in the press for insulting Corden over his weight. Just one week after being knighted in recognition of his lifetime of work in the theatre, the mainstream press seemed to be gunning for Stewart.
Here are some clips from the incident:
Now, it seems they’ve made up. At the Channel 4 Comedy Gala last week, Stewart and Corden appeared in a skit together. Stewart wore his familiar Captain Picard uniform (from Star Trek: The Next Generation) while in bed with Corden. They talked about how they wanted to go back to how things used to be in their relationship.
If you’re in the UK, you can view the footage at the Channel 4 site (at the 1:07:00 point). Unfortunately, the video’s not currently available to other countries. TrekMovie has posted this screen capture:
They could call it “I’m f**king Patrick Stewart,” heh. Well, maybe that will shut up the press.
