HOBBIT NEWS - Ian McKellan and prostate cancer
Send good vibes to our Gandalf, because Sir Ian McKellan recently revealed in an interview that he's been living with prostate cancer for the past few years. He isn't too worried, though, because he says he's examined by a doctor regularly, and although he hasn't had treatment, the cancer has remained contained. He also assures us that it's one of the few cancers that is treatable, so he doesn't feel in any real danger. The 73-year-old has also had trouble lately with his hearing and a cataract. Yet Sir Ian has an indomitable spirit, and between stretches, regular exercise, and good healthcare, he says he feels just as spry as ever. Nevertheless, we wish Sir Ian the best of luck with his health!
