Sir Patrick Stewart has admitted that he just can’t get enough of smooching with other men.

The X-Men actor, who is straight and married to wife Sunny Ozell, locked lips with his on-screen colleague Sir Ian McKellen earlier this year at the première of film Mr Holmes.

Appearing on Conan O’Brien’s talk show Conan, the actor addressed his fondness for kissing men.

He said: “I knew what I was doing! It took Sir Ian by surprise a little bit.”

“We are very good friends, and quite intimate friends. It seemed appropriate! That is how we greet eachother or say goodbye.”

“But Ian isn’t the only one. I don’t want you to think I am a one-man guy!”

He adds that he would like to kiss Sir Sean Connery – with “maybe a bit of tongue” – adding that he is “entirely” comfortable.

The actor then moves  to snog O’Brien, saying: “You were looking at me in a way!”

The TV host jokes: “That was fantastic! I felt passion… you’re an iconic actor, a great man, and we kissed, and I felt like you suddenly accepted me as your better!”

Sir Patrick Stewart adds of two men kissing: “Who says it’s unacceptable? If you say it, it will happen!”

The actor recently laughed off a report mistakenly claiming he is gay, saying: “Quite frankly, I was utterly flattered by that assumption.”
