Before anyone thinks otherwise, let me state that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are both insanely attractive and talented men. That is the understatement of the year. And it turns out they’ve always been that way! The above image is of Stewart in a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 1977. The loincloth look suits him – to say the least. And he’s not alone in his handsome-ness. Stewart told the New York Times McKellen was “the most gorgeous young man on the British stage” in a recent joint interview (which you can see after the break), and Tor dug up photographic evidence.
Check out Ian McKellen in equally skimpy attire as Coriolanus after the break.
