This clip of Sir Ian McKellen and One Direction sharing the sofa is a case in point. It appears that the Hobbit star is as enamored with 1D as they are with his work as Gandalf the wizard. McKellen even went to see the band when they were on tour in New Zealand while he was filming the seemingly endless Peter Jackson series.
As usual, Harry steals the show by admitting he might have skipped school to watch the first trilogy, and then tells McKellen, "You're amazing!" What's a wizard to do except return the compliment? Then Harry snuggles up to his shoulder. Cue Internet bursting into flames. You're a wizard now, Harry!
Patrick Stewart better watch out, because it looks like his X-Men buddy has a new best friend. (Cosmopolitan)
