Sir Patrick Stewart was nearly unrecognizable when he showed up in a wig, false lashes and a pink dress for an event in Los Angeles, California to promote season two of Blunt Talk.

"Something is happening in Hollywood tonight. #blunttalkseason2," the 75-year-old actor captioned a photo of himself in the makeup chair on Monday.

Stewart went all out by donning a statement necklace, black heels, a pair of pantyhose and a silver clutch bag. After showing off his look, the Star Trek: The Next Generation star got quite the compliment when the Twitterverse started comparing him to 70-year-old actress, Dame Helen Mirren.
