Urgant Ivan, Ksenia Sobchak, Andrey Malakhov…Yes, anyone related to the entertainment industry, would dream of such a proposal rejected by British actor Ian McKellen.
According to Daily Mail, the star of the franchise “Lord of the rings” trilogy and “the Hobbit” could earn in the evening $ 1.5 million just again playing the role of Gandalf. But this proposal did not seem to Briton attractive and interesting.
“I was offered $1.5 million to marry a very famous couple in California, and I probably would have thought to do this. However, I had to dress up in a Gandalf. So I said, “Excuse me, Gandalf is not involved in weddings,” said McKellen.
Reporters learned that seeing Gandalf in the role of facilitator at their wedding, they wanted the co-founder of the service Napster and the first President of Facebook Sean Parker.
In 2013 he conducted his wedding to singer Alexandra Lenas. The ceremony was decorated in the style of the works of JRR Tolkien.
Note that without Ian McKellen stars this celebration was enough. So, among the guests was musician sting, actress Emma Watson and many others.
