Patrick Stewart Does Reddit AMA

Yesterday Patrick Stewart took part in one of Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” sessions. Via E Online:

Patrick Stewart is kind of like the Hollywood version of a unicorn. He’s a very rare combination of brilliant, funny, down to earth and most importantly, royal. Whenever you have the pleasure to be in the presence of Sir Patrick, you should count yourself as lucky. Which is why we knew that his Reddit AMA was going to be good. After all, his Twitter account is something of a masterpiece, and conducting an Ask Me Anything is basically one giant Twitter post. The actor signed up for his first Reddit foray to promote the premiere of his new comedy Blunt Talk, which sees him teaming up with fellow comedian Seth McFarlane. On whether Star Trek actor Jonathan Frakes is better with a beard: “With a beard, preferable, because it tickles when you kiss him.” On his worst habit: “Slurping when I drink…anything.” On hobbies he’d like to pick up: “Yes! Deep-sea diving and mountaineering. There’s something about going up and down that turns me on.”

The banter between Reddit users is also entertaining.

    One of my favorite from the AMA Reddit:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/3hq15d/i_am_actor_patrick_stewart_of_yorkshire_xmen_star/

    xerxeslaw: Hi Patrick! Frakes with a beard or cleanly shaven?

    sirpatstew: Frakes with a beard, preferable, because it tickles when you kiss him.

    Context: They reunited the whole cast at the Calgary Comic Expo, and when Patrick
    Stewart came out he went for the lip lock with Jonathan Frakes.

    I think that’s Wesley (Wil Weaton) clapping on the right. 🙂

      “Number One, I order you to take a Number Two!” (My fave Beavis&Butthead line)

    • J Ascher

      Oh, the things I would have done with Riker!

      P.S. I actually saw Frakes and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi) at a Star Trek Convention in 1990.

    I’d love to put a cute bone in his body. I find Patrick Stewart to be one of the sexiest men to ever exist!

    Ive had the pleasure and he is lovely in person. Star Trek Convention here in Las Vegas every year. Two weeks ago had the bizarre opportunity of a meet and greet with William Shatner and Joan Collins. Now how often does an opportunity like that come along. My hubs is the trekkie, but its always fun to go.

  • TexasBoy

    Met him in Vegas years ago, at a Video Software Dealers convention. What a great guy, a person that is genuinely nice.

  • Bj Lincoln

    I would love to go to a convention. I have been a fan since it first started. I don’t like pictures of family hanging around. I find it a little unnerving. I do have a picture hanging in my office that greets me every day. It’s a beautiful Bl/W of Sir Patrick.

    • Christopher

      I would love to go to a Sci-fi Con, or a Comic Con, but the problem is that they’re just too damned expensive. I doubt that we’ll EVER be able to afford to go to any future events.

      • Bj Lincoln

        That’s the biggest issue for us as well.

  • Halloween_Jack

    Reddit seems to have recovered somewhat from the recent debacle, which involved the sudden (and unjustified) firing of Victoria, the popular AMA moderator/assistant.

  • JCF

    Oh Sir Patrick, you don’t have an non-cute bone in your body (at any time). Sorry!

    As much as I adore Sir Patrick, I absolutely cannot fucking stand Seth McFarlane. No thanks.
