What's better than one classically-trained actor who is also noted for his later life geek-friendly roles and posting odd pictures online? Why, two such actors, of course. Sir Patrick Stewart (77) and Sir Ian McKellen (78) share a bromance so strong, it looks they have been destined to be together.

Both of them started out on the British stage before roles in television and film. Stewart gained worldwide fame for playing Captain Picard in "Star Trek: The Next Generation." McKellen hit it big with "X Men" and "Lord of the Rings". Stewart and McKellen met in the 1970s in the Royal Shakespeare Company. McKellen was already playing the great parts, but Stewart, who worshipped him, found him intimidating. The two men - both knighted by Queen Elizabeth - really bonded over their shared life experience while filming "X Men." The pair told CBS that they both turned to acting as an escape -- Stewart from his abusive father and McKellen from his early struggles as a gay but closeted actor.

Bored Panda has collected some of the funniest images, capturing the essence of their friendship to prove that all of us need a person to rely on. Including celebrities. From going on a Ferriss wheel to performing at the 62nd London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, these guys cherish their very quirky and very precious bond everywhere they go to. Scroll down to check out some of the funniest moments from their daily adventures and vote for your favorites.

Their drinking problem is obvious... they only have two hands apiece.
