Now, THIS is the celebrity story that we like to see!   And it’s one every Hobbit would be proud of!

Ben Coyles of England was celebrating his birthday by doing a pub crawl dressed as Gandalf the Wizard from the Lord Of The Rings and Hobbit movies and books.   He’s a big fan.

And as he was walking from one pub to the other…who did he bump into…but none other than Sir Ian McKellen himself (the legendary actor who played Gandalf in the movies).

Coyles said later that McKellen was really cool, happily posed for a picture with him, and wished him a happy birthday.   Nice, Sir Ian!

Incidentally, Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King (the final film of the trilogy) has been re-released in movie theaters for a limited time.   See the details with THIS ARTICLE.

Check out the footage below!   This is how it’s done, celebs!
