Sir Ian McKellen Helps A Star Trek Fan Propose To His Boyfriend! You Shall Not Pass This Video Up!

sir ian mckellan helps star trek fan propose

This is so sweet!

South African director Brett Best wanted to have Sir Patrick Stewart help him in his proposal to his Star Trek fanatic boyfriend Khalid Shawwa.

Unfortunately, Patrick was unavailable. Fortunately, his bestie Sir Ian McKellen was there in his stead.

Here was Gandalf's message for Khalid:

"Khalid, I've got bad news for you. It's good news as well. But the bad news is Patrick Stewart is married. I married him. Well, no, I was the minister at the wedding. He's not available. The good news is that Brett is available. So, think it over. Do the right thing."

We hope Khalid did, and said "yes," and that the two will have a Next Generation of kids.

Ch-ch-check out the sweet proposal…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, & Hugh Jackman Reveal Their AMAZING Impressions Of Their X-Men Co-stars! Watch HERE!

michael fassbender ian mckellan james mcavoy impressions hugh jackman x men days of future past

Due to the crazy time travel nature of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy are playing the exact same characters as Sir Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart years apart.

Sounds like it could be a challenge for an actor, not only getting the character's voice right but getting another actor's as well!

Good thing Michael and James are such quick studies! They do darn good impressions of their counterparts! And Hugh Jackman has some secret impressions of his own!

Find out who does the best Ian…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The world was delighted when X-Men starlet Ellen Page came out on Valentine's Day, but she wasn't the franchise's first openly gay cast member! Not even close!

Ian McKellen, a.k.a. present day Magneto, has been openly gay since 1988!

In the X-Men films, Ian's character fights on behalf of an unjustly disenfranchised group of "mutants." Well, that's no coincidence!

As it turns out, when director Bryan Singer approached the legendary actor and begged him to accept the role, he suggested that Ian view the mutants' plight as a metaphor for what the LGBT community endures in real life!

Ian confessed:

Tell it, Gandalf! Snap snap!

Ian McKellen is straight up one of the coolest dudes (there are actually two 'coolest dudes' and he's one of them) on the planet, and we are so proud to hear that he's helped pen an open letter about Russia's anti-gay laws!

He teamed up with 27 Nobel laureates to drop a letter filled with knowledge on Russian President Vladimir Putin!

Ian even cited his bona fides as "aka Gandalf/Henry V!"

The letter was printed by London's Independent newspaper:

Aww! Liv Tyler is such a sweetie!

The Lord Of The Rings actress came out to support co-star Ian McKellen at the opening night of Broadway's Waiting For Godot in NYC on Sunday.

Liv opted for an adorbz black frock underneath a velvet navy coat, which she paired with opaque black tights.

The rest of her outfit was very simple with just a quilted black purse and Lanvin leather flats as accents.

Even her hair and makeup looked natural, except for a touch of pink gloss.

Clearly Liv knows what works best on her!
