Sir Patrick Stewart is an ally to the LGBT community, but he's not gay.
The "X Men" actor had to clarify that after he was recently mistakenly outed by a British newspaper.
In an article about actress Ellen Page coming out, The Guardian included a line saying "Some gay people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, think Page's coming out speech is newsworthy." The error caused Stewart to share his amusement on Twitter.
"Well @guardian it makes for a nice change," he tweeted. "At least I didn't wake up to the internet telling me I was dead again."
Stewart is besties with openly gay actor Ian McKellen but married Sunny Ozell in Sepetember 2013.
The paper later ran a correction stating "This should have read 'Some people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, think Page's coming out speech is newsworthy."
