Wolverine set out to demolish the Twittersphere on Thursday without brandishing a single claw. Instead Hugh Jackman, who plays the iconic X-Men character, aimed for the heart by tweeting out a pic of him and co-star Patrick Stewart (who plays X-Men's Professor Charles Xavier) having dinner together with the caption, "Father and son reunion.
#Logan #Charles #Wolverine"
It's no secret that X-Men stars Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart have enjoyed working together throughout the past 17 years. As the story goes, Patrick Stewart decided to retire from the franchise (the same year as Jackman), after an emotional viewing of Logan, where the two thespians held hands and shed a tear together.
Back in March of this year Stewart told Good Morning America:
I was sitting alongside Hugh, and the movie was playing so beautifully, and we got to the last couple of minutes, which is very intense, very emotional, and I suddenly felt Hugh had taken my hand, and he was squeezing it, and then I saw him just do this [wiping an eye], and I thought, ‘If Hugh Jackman can wipe away a tear, I can wipe away a tear.’ As the credits rolled, I realized, you know, there is no better way to say goodbye to this than at this moment with a film like this, because it is so beautiful.
The chemistry between you two is wonderful to witness— TenderRevolution (@RevoltTenderly) November 30, 2017
It's too much attractive in one picture, to be honest.— SouthernBelleBear🐻 (@JesTheBelle) November 30, 2017
I am totally comfortable saying that’s a whole lot of sexy in one photo. I wish I looked like either one of you.— @WilsonFrontier 🖖🏻 (@WilsonFrontier) November 30, 2017
