In an astonishing interview with NBC’s The View, the actor who played Professor X announced he is applying to become an American so he can oppose the US President and his politics.
The Hollywood luvvie, who is best known for his role Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek and as Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men franchise, said it was the best way to fight for justice and equality.
"Maybe it's the only good thing as a result of this election, I am now applying for citizenship," Stewart said.
"Because I want to be an American too because all of my friends in Washington said 'There's one thing you can do, fight, fight oppose, oppose! But I can't do it because I'm not a citizen."

He also said: "The first night we were in Washington, I had the worst night sleep for years and years”, referring to a tweet he sent out where he took a swipe at the Republican President.
The tweet read: “Had the worst sleep of my life last night. But I was sleeping less than 300 yds from where Donald Trump sleeps. Could there be a connection?”
Stewart is one of many Hollywood stars who have hit out against Donald Trump, as a number this year’s awards ceremonies turned political.
As Meryl Streep accepted a lifetime achievement trophy during the Golden Globes, she used her speech to slam the Republican.

Referring to the moment in the election campaign when he seemed to mock a disabled reporter, the 67-year-old said: "It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I can't get it out of my head, because it wasn't in a movie. It was real life.
"And this instinct, to humiliate, when it's modelled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody's life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.
"Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence invites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.
“We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage."
Host Jimmy Fallon and award winner Hugh Laurie also took shots at President Trump on-stage at the ceremony in Los Angeles.
While Ashton Kutcher used his opening speech at the SAG Awards to hammer the temporary travel ban.
“Good evening, fellow SAG-AFTRA members, and everybody at home, and everybody in airports that belong in my America,” he said.
"You are a part of the fabric of who we are. And we love you and we welcome you."

The Oscars 2017
And after the 2017 Oscars ceremony witnessed one of the biggest disasters in awards season history, as La La Land was accidentally announced as Best Picture, when Moonlight had really won, the 45th President of the US took the opportunity to hit back.
He said: “I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end.
Trump added: “It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening.
“I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.”
