The video below shows Sir Patrick sitting with his 38-year-old wife, singer-songwriter wife, Sunny Ozell, explaining to her a technique commonly known as the “quadruple take”. This kind of reaction is often employed for comic effect, usually not long after a particularly dirty double entendre.

In a recent statement supporting an Oxford University initiative to study the benefits of medical weed, Stewart said he uses pot on a daily basis to help ease the pain of his arthritis.

“Two years ago, in Los Angeles, I was examined by a doctor and given a note which gave me legal permission to purchase, from a registered outlet, cannabis-based products, which I was advised might help the ortho-arthritis in both my hands,” he said in a statement.

“This, it would seem, is a genetically-based condition. My mother had badly distorted and painful hands.”

Despite his support, you wont see Stewart rolling a spliffy anytime soon, with the actor preferring ointment, sprays and edibles.

“I believe that the ointment and spray have significantly reduced the stiffness and pain in my hands. I can make fists, which was not the case before I began this treatment,” he said.

“I have had no negative side effects from this treatment and the alternative would have been to continue taking NSAID’s, Advil, Aleve and Naproxen, which are known to be harsh on the liver and to cause acid reflux.”

Stewart said based on his experience, he enthusiastically supports the Oxford University Cannabis Research Plan.

“I believe this program of research might result in benefits for people like myself as well as millions of others,” he said.
