Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart have been best friends for a long time.
The pair even went to Broadway with a Pinter and a Beckett play just for the fun of it.
And recently they took their friendship to the next level.
On the red carpet for Star Trek: Picard, McKellen approached his friend and was received with a peck on the cheek.
Following that little peck, McKellen immediately got down on one knee and proposed to Stewart.
Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart did that. Absolute icons with the best friendship. I have to stan https://t.co/Hux6ienn3p— Lotte Winter #TeamDivina 💖💛🌈💙💚🌻👻🍉🥝🍒 (@Lotte Winter #TeamDivina 💖💛🌈💙💚🌻👻🍉🥝🍒)1579200774.0

Long story short, they've always been an adorable couple.
