Sir Patrick Stewart question

Sir Patrick Stewart’s Touching Response To A Fan’s Question

Written by

The actor famous for Star Trek Captain Jean-Luc Picard and mutant Professor Xavier, Sir Patrick Stewart was applauded for taking a stance on violence against women.

While at Comicpalooza, a girl asked Patrick Stewart a question about what the most important thing he’d ever done besides acting was. The 72-year-old star’s answer might surprise you.

The girl who asked Patrick Stewart the question, Heather, wrote about what happened on her Tumblr:

They were about to move onto the next question when Sir Patrick looked at me and asked me “My Dear, are you okay?” I said yes, and that I was finally able to move on from that part of my life. He then passionately said that it is never the woman’s fault in domestic violence, and how wrong to think that it ever is. That it is in the power of men to stop violence towards women. The moderator then asked “Do you want a hug?”

Sir Patrick didn’t even hesitate, he smiled, hopped off the stage and came over to embrace me in a hug. Which he held me there for a long while. He told me “You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now.” I couldn’t stop thanking him. His embrace was so warm and genuine. It was two people, two strangers, supporting and giving love. And when we pulled away he looked strait in my eyes, like he was promising that. He told me to take care. And I will.

    There are so many reasons whay patrick stewart is the man

    1: rocks the bald (and pretty much hasnt aged since 1990)
    2: prof charles xavier (the role he was born to play)
    3: captain jean luc picard
    4: avery bullock (seenyor booluck is no heeer)
    5: named alongside cindy crawford as sexiest person of the year in 1992 – for amiddle aged bald due that is a seriously bad ass acomplishment
    6: Taking on star trek to fund local theatre
    7: how much fun he has with sir ian mckellan ( seriously – who has more fun than these two dudes)

    This is my new number one though – the man is a true inspiration
