Here are some Patrick Stewart bits (I used to work for him, indirectly):

  • He once broke up with a girlfriend by FAX.
  • He's a pretty cheap guy, after years as an underpaid actor (before Star Trek).
  • I once accidentally set off his car alarm (he drove a Jaguar at the time).
  • He looked really goofy back when he had hair (I've seen pictures).
  • He's shorter than you'd expect.
  • He once cold-called Holly Hunter for a date after seeing her in The Piano.
