Patrick Stewart, is that you?

The British actor was almost unrecognizable on Monday when he donned a pink satin dress, a blonde wig and heavy makeup while promoting his show Blunt Talk in Los Angeles.

"Something is happening in Hollywood tonight. #blunttalkseason2," Stewart captioned an Instagram picture of himself getting all dolled up for the event.

Social media users took notice of the 75-year-old's new look, with some comparing Stewart to Helen Mirren.

"Glorious. Well done sir. Helen Mirren, amirite?" one tweeter wrote.

Another Twitter user quipped, "channeling Helen Mirren there."

The 75-year-old was joined by stars Jacki Weaver, Elvis Mitchell and Adrian Scarborough at the event, which included a special screening of the Starz comedy and a panel discussion.

The series follows Walter Blunt (Stewart) as he moves to Los Angeles to host a nightly cable news show.
