12 photos of X-Men’s Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart to warm your cold heart

xmen days of future pastThe world is a dark place. Murders, kidnapping, human rights issues — it’s enough to make a person lock themselves away and cry in their bed alone. Luckily, we have these two guys to bring the joy back into our lives.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past hitting theaters this weekend, what better way to pump us up than by displaying some major bromance between two key actors of the film, Sir Ian McKellen (Magneto) and Patrick Stewart (Professor X). Of course, the movie doesn’t help move the needle in the aforementioned atrocities of the world, but maybe that’s why we can’t get enough of X-Men.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past year, the Internet is all aflutter over the public display of bromantic affection between these two. Patrick is the ultimate gay man’s best straight male friend, because any time someone questions his sexuality, he embraces the rumors and just holds hands with McKellen with a smile.

Though, who really cares anyway? It’s refreshing to see Hollywood actors and media sites talk about positive stuff (like undying, ultimate friendship) instead of smack-down talk and gossip.
