The Logan actor has shared a clip of himself meeting his new foster dog - a pit bull named Ginger -and obviously Twitter has practically imploded with love.

"Thank you for that, that was a very nice greeting," Stewart replies.

Fans were also lapping it up, and praised the star for fostering a pit bull, as the controversial breed has recently been banned in Canada's Montreal.

Stewart then posted a second video of Ginger too busy licking Stewart's bald head to take part in his swimming lesson. He added the caption: "The swimming lesson that wasn't. Our foster pibble Ginger is perfect afternoon company. "

Meanwhile, Stewart has shared his political views on Donald Trump as US president, telling Esquire that he doubts he'll last two months in office before being impeached.

"But [being called a "luvvie"] that doesn't bother me at all," he said. "I don't give a shit about that. Early on, I said that Trump would only make it two years. I'm now inclined to say two months."

He also recently announced that he was retiring from X-Men after Logan.
