Photo of Ian McKellen with One Direction becomes internet hit
12:33pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Bolton
SIR Ian McKellen is the new addition to boyband One Direction — if this photo is anything to go by.
The picture has been circulating on social media sites such as Twitter and Buzzfeed after tweeter Jack Morrissey uploaded this photo of the Lord of the Rings actor standing next to cardboard cutouts of the boys, which was taken on Sunday night at a theatre in California, and it went viral.
The band, who have just released a 3D concert film This Is Us are reported to already have already grossed £3.5 million at the British box office and made $17 million (£10.9 million) in the US.
Although it is unlikely that the 74-year-old former Bolton School pupil actually watched the film, it is good to see that he has still got a sense of humour.
