Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart kiss, McKellen ‘proposes’ at ‘Star Trek: Picard’ premiere

The Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart bromance seems as strong as ever on the red carpet this week.

The “X-Men” co-stars and friends reunited at the premiere of “Star Trek: Picard” in London.

McKellen, 80, got down on one knee as if proposing, People magazine reported.

But sorry Magneto fans, Stewart is already married to Sunny Ozell; their 2013 wedding was officiated by none other than McKellen, the BBC reported then.

Then McKellen got up and planted a kiss on Stewart.

"Star Trek: Picard" starts 20 years after the end of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" with a retired Picard living on his family's vineyard. Other cast members from the series will appear including Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis and Brent Spiner. They will be joined by Allison Pill and Santiago Cabrera, The Advocate reported.

Originally Stewart declined to bring Picard back to life, but reconsidered thanks to the "ideas and concepts" the new series brings, The Standard reported.

“Star Trek: Picard” premieres on CBS All Access, the network’s streaming service, on Thursday.
