On screen they may be enemies, but Ian McKellen has revealed he will be marrying Sir Patrick Stewart.
Appearing on the Jonathon Ross Show at the weekend, Sir Ian said that he would be marrying the man who plays his arch-nemesis in the hit X-Men movies.
"I'm going to marry Patrick," Sir Ian tells Ross.
"I'm going to officiate at his wedding."
When Ross asks Sir Ian how he's allowed to marry Sir Patrick and his partner, Sunny Ozell, he replies: "I don't know, but in Massachusetts, in the middle of America somewhere, you get a friend along, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married."
Sir Ian added that he done it once before.
"I've done in once before with two guys having a civil partnership, I was crying my eyes out."
Both renowned British stage actors, McKellen and Stewart found wider fame in Hollywood with The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Star Trek: The Next Generation, respectively.
