Whether in hits (The Simpsons, The Da Vinci Code) or misses (Cats), Sir Ian McKellen has transcended fame to become a treasured icon thanks to his award-winning work on stage (King Lear, Richard III) and screen (The Dresser, The Good Liar). The esteemed Englishman won a Tony, a Golden Globe, a SAG, and seven Laurence Olivier Awards! That’s to say nothing of the statuette Mr. Man has in his pants every time he sees Ian shed his threads on camera! In fact, the skintastic star received an Oscar nomination for his shirtless turn as James Whale in the biopic Gods and Monsters (1998). Yet McKellen is best known for playing the wizard Gandalf in Peter Jackson’s fantastical The Lord of the Rings trilogy (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King) from 2001 to 2003 and The Hobbit spinoffs (An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug, The Battle of the Five Armies) from 2012 to 2014 as well as for portraying the supervillain Magneto in the comic book blockbusters X-Men (2000), X2: X-Men United (2003), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). We guess that means he’s XXXX-rated! Actually, that’s almost true when it comes to Ian’s revealing role in the R-rated flick Priest of Love (1981). As the risqué writer D.H. Lawrence, McKellen exposes his chubby when skinny-dipping with Graham Faulkner. While they frolic in the ocean, we can see their full frontal nudity and bare backsides. Talk about beach bums!
