SIR PATRICK STEWART---A NOBLE SUPPORTER OF THE TERRIERS

Talking soccer with Sir Patrick Stewart
  Sir Patrick Stewart is known in London's West End and on Broadway as a noted Shakespearean actor but in the northern English town of Huddersfield he is better known as a fervent supporter of the Terriers---the nickname for Huddersfield Town Football Club.

  The 75-year-old actor, who was knighted by the Queen in 2010 for his services to drama, has supported the club all his life and is also president of the club's academy for developing young talent.

He is, he tells me, very happy with the performance so far of the club's new manager, the German-American David Wagner who until joining Huddersfield in November was with Borussia Dortmund and he has high hopes for next season. 
  
 The club's best years, however, were back in the 1920s when it became the first English club to win three successive league titles, a feat which only three other clubs have matched, and none has bettered. They also won the F.A. Cup in 1922.

Sir Patrick, who spent seven years as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation and later as Professor  Charles Xavier in the X-Men movies, is a most unstuffy and down-to-earth knight.

  Currently starring in the TV comedy series Blunt Talk, He loves to laugh, tell anecdotes and he talks freely about his life and career.

  He married his third wife, Sunny Ozell, who is 38 years his junior, in 2013 in a ceremony conducted by his good friend Sir Ian McKellen.

  "I have not spent much of my adult life single," he says frankly. "The first time I was married for 23 years.  I've had girlfriends and relationships, some of them which were wonderful and ended happily and some of them didn't." He smiles ruefully. "I like the company of women very much and I've never been a great one for lads' night out, you know, going to the pub and downing a lot of beer and afterwards going for kebabs or an Indian meal which is usually what happens. 
  "I like to be in the company of  women and that has from time to time led to relationships;  so I'm very happy with that."

  1. Wait, so she's 37 and he's 75? And presumably they have been together for a few years, at least one or two before they married in 2013, which means she was about let's say 30 or so and he was.....68.....sorry, somebody pass me the bucket to puke in...I'm sure she would have found him as alluring if he wasn't rich and famous. Yes, I totally agree with myself on that.

  3. Having talked at length with Sir Patrick I totally agree with Andy. There is nothing deviant or wrong with his relationship with Sunny. They both seem very happy.

    1. Yes, he's happy cos he's got a younger chick to bang and she's happy cos she's got a rich and famous husband, ergo some prestige in life. Duh. QPR

  5. The reasons older men chase younger women have less to do with sex and everything to do with a profound desire to reassure themselves that they've still got "it." "It" isn't just physical attractiveness; "it" is the whole masculine package of youth, vitality, and, above all else, possibility. It's not that women their own age are less attractive, it's that they lack the culturally-based power to reassure men's fragile, aging egos that they are still hot and hip and filled with potential. Awwww, so they are actually doing it for themselves. How "manly". RRR
