Could you say no to $1.5 million for a day’s work?
That’s what English actor Ian McKellen has said he hid in a recent interview with The Daily Mail.
“I was offered $1.5 million to marry a very famous couple in California,” the 77-year-old actor said.
So why did he turn the offer down?
The actor would have had to don his Gandalf costume again, the character he performed in the movie adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
The offer allegedly came from the billionaire founder of online music company Napster, Sean Parker, who had a $10 million Lord of the Rings-themed wedding in 2013.
