Angry McKellen Slams

Subscribe to Ian McKellen alerts

Actor SIR Ian McKellen has launched a scathing attack on after seeing an inaccurate profile of his life on the popular internet encyclopedia web site. The LORD OF THE RINGS star is unimpressed with the careless biography available to members of the public and wishes the internet site would update his details so fans aren't misled. Complaining to film magazine, Empire, MCKellen moans, "It's thoroughly objectionable. It's just taken, as the basis of my career, an article that was written about five years ago, why doesn't someone correct it?"
