Stewart Appearance On 'The View'

Patrick Stewart appeared on The View recently, where he revealed to former co-star Whoopi Goldberg that he had been intimidated by her.

As seen on YouTube, working with Goldberg was Stewart's first time working with an actress who had won a prestigious award. "To begin with, I was a little intimidated by her," Stewart explained. "Miss Goldberg here joined our show. I think I'm right, the same year that she won her Academy Award. And it was astonishing to me that an actress at the very peak of her career should, as I was told, ask, ask if she could appear on a syndicated science-fiction television show. And so I hadn't met any Academy Award winners before that, so I was a little intimidated. I loved doing those scenes with Whoopi. I wish she had appeared more often."

Asked if Professor Xavier would be returning in a future X-Men movie, Stewart replied, "Perhaps you didn't stay right to the end of the movie. A lot of people didn't. They rolled these interminable credits. Well there was one more scene after the credits and it was a suggestive scene. There was some way in which the professor is going to return."

Stewart also spoke about working with Sir Laurence Olivier. Stewart began to lose his hair in his teens and began to wear a toupee, taking it to auditions with him. "I lost my hair when I was a teenager and it was awful and I thought most of my life, especially the fun part of my life which would be hanging out with women like you was over," explained Stewart. "So I had this wonderful toupee made and I used to wear it to auditions so that I could show myself as two actors for the price of one. With toupee, without toupee. And I auditioned for Sir Laurence Olivier wearing my toupee...I took it off and I did my second piece and afterwards he said, 'Do that again.' I said, 'You want to hear one of my pieces again?' 'No, no, no, no, no. Put it on and take it off again.' That's the only impression I made on him."
