Ian McKellen Turned Down $1.5 Million Offer to Marry Couple Dressed as Gandalf

Ian McKellen has revealed that he was offered $1.5 million to dress up as Gandalf and marry a “very famous couple,” but he turned it down.

“I was offered one-and-a-half million dollars to marry a very famous couple in California, which I would perhaps have considered doing but I had to go dressed as Gandalf,” the legendary actor told the Daily Mail. “So I said, ‘I am sorry, Gandalf doesn’t do weddings.’”

The celeb couple was reportedly Facebook co-founder Sean Parker and his wife Alexandra Lenas. They got married back in 2013 with a Lord of the Rings themed wedding and all of the guests were given custom clothes to fit the theme.
