Ian also shared an inspiring message about his experience at the march, referring to President Donald Trump as “President Breaking Wind.”

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.

The first teaser trailer for Emma Watson‘s highly anticipated movie Beauty and the Beast has been released!

The clip only gives as a brief look at the 26-year-old actress as Belle in the live-action movie. We see as she enters the Beast’s castle and discovered the rose under the glass.

Ian McKellan Responds to Sam Smith's Oscars Speech

Ian McKellen has responded to Sam Smith‘s shout-out during his acceptance speech at the 2016 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 28) in Hollywood.

The 23-year-old singer won the award for Best Original Song and said that Ian once mentioned that no openly gay man has won an Oscar before and he’s proud to be the first.

This statement is untrue as Dustin Lance Black won an Oscar back in 2009 for writing the movie Milk and he called the singer out for the mistake.

“I’d said no openly gay actor had received #Oscars – that doesn’t detract from @samsmithworld achievement. Congratulations to him & all others!” Ian said to clarify that he was only speaking of actors.

Pictured inside: Sam switching up his outfit to attend the Vanity Fair Oscar Party with “Writing’s On the Wall” co-writer Jimmy Napes.

FYI: Sam is wearing dunhill Bespoke at the party.

Helen Mirren Worried Hubby Taylor Hackford Wouldn't Make Love To Her Again After She Played 'The Queen'

Helen Mirren rocks a floral dress while attending a special cocktail reception for her latest film Women In Gold held at the House of Elyx on Wednesday (December 2) in New York City.

The 70-year-old actress was joined at the event by Alan Cumming, Ian McKellen, model Lindsay Ellingson and Paul Iacono, who all came out to show their support. Absolut Elyx CEO Jonas Tahlin hosted the event.

Earlier this week, Helen gave a hilarious speech at the 2015 Gotham Independent Film Awards while accepting her Lifetime Achievement Award.

“I’ll have to you a story about The Queen,” Helen told the audience. “When the film was first screened at Venice, I’d never seen it before nor had my husband, Taylor (Hackford), and the first shot is of me completely in all the regalia and the wig and everything, and I turned to look at the camera, and my husband lets out this huge laugh because he’s never seen me dressed as The Queen before. So I leaned over to him and I said, ‘Darling do you think you’ll ever fu*k me again?’”

“Between you and me, ‘Yes’,” Helen joked. “This isn’t on television is it? Are we safe?”
