Stewart Looks Forward To Old Age

STAR TREK actor PATRICK STEWART is looking forward to reaching his 65th birthday this year (05) - because he will get a free bus pass from the British government.

The veteran actor will reach the milestone in July, and has been discussing the advantages of getting old with his X-MEN co-star SIR IAN McKELLEN.

Stewart says, "Age has never really been an issue with me. I get a bus pass this year.

"I had a drink with Sir Ian McKellen on his 65th birthday last year. He waved his bus pass in my face and said, 'I am going to take advantage of this.'

"What's good enough for Sir Ian is good enough for me."
