I didn't think it was possible for me to love Ian McKellan more. I was wrong. The star of the Lord of the Rings
films/Shakespearean stage icon (also, have you seen his film version of Richard III
? It's incredible) was apparently asked
by Taylor Swift to be part of the cadre of stars joining her on stage on the 1989 tour, but he refused. God bless you Gandalf/Magneto. You might be an X-Men villain, but, now, you'll always be a hero in my heart.

If your feelings were hurt, Tay-Tay, well, you know what you can try to do.
