Their IRL shenanigans have been well-documented online for years, with this turning into another page of the friendship scrapbook; McKellen even officiated Stewart’s wedding. But while fans may focus in on the kiss between Stewart and McKellen, that’s not all they managed. The look on their face when they see each other again is priceless and adorable.

The duo were last seen onscreen together in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Stewart has said earlier this year he’d be up for a “buddy comedy” with McKellen. Somebody get them a film together ASAP.
