73-year-old Sir Patrick Stewart has married his longtime girlfriend, Brooklyn singer and songwriter, Sunny Ozell, who is 35. I’d like to say I’m shocked by their age difference, but nothing in Hollywood shocks me anymore. I’m a bit gross out by their 38-year age difference. Creepy. I’m 36, and my grandpa isn’t much older than Patrick.
Anyway – back to the news. The pair tweeted the picture above, saying “Yes, married.” Patrick’s best friend and ‘X-Men’ costar Ian McKellan officiated the nuptials.
“I did my part,” McKellan, 74, posted on his Facebook page, alongside a photo showing the actor sporting his “Doctor of Divinity” license and a T-shirt reading “Minister.”
Stewart and Ozell have dated since 2009, with some hints recently that a marriage might take place.
McKellan appeared to let the cat out of the bag during a March appearance on the British talk show The Jonathan Ross Show when he said, “I’m going to marry Patrick. I’m going to officiate at his wedding.”
And on Saturday Ozell Tweeted a photo of her feet, toes painted red, immersed in crystal-clear water, lake stones at the bottom.
“Don’t tell me you’re getting cold feet!!!!” one of her followers responded.
The marriage is Stewart’s third. He was previously married to Sheila Falconer, from 1966-1990, and Wendy Neuss, from 2000-2003.
Hopefully FOURTHS time the charm for Patrick?
