The Best Answers To Come Out Of Ian McKellen Taking Over The Hobbit Twitter Feed Yesterday

[View All on One Page]

We already love Sir Ian McKellen a great deal but a recent takeover of the official The Hobbit twitter feed reminds us why. The thespian was asked questions by fans via an #AskGandalf hashtag and answered so many, the account hit their maximum for the afternoon. But don’t worry, plenty was said and we’ve documented it here for posterity. Hit the jump to see which were our favorites (the questions are on the right). We’ve ranked them by how many favorites they received from users.

Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Oh bless his soul for that response to the Aragorn/Legloas question. Let out a small gasp and giggle, though I’d like to spend BOTH the evening and night with Aragorn.

    Oh that was wonderful! I am so in love with that man… in a total platonic way where I would still snuggle.

    I wish Sir Ian many years left. He always makes me laugh and knows how to be exactly what tounge in cheek should be.

    If only he could express his desire to skip that question, by means of some spoken phrase, or even a single word. Unfortunately…

    Well, clearly, you cannot pass on such a question.

  • Jim Gordon

    I’m probably reading this wrong, but did you refer to Irish people as British?

    No love for Eowyn? Poor girl got railroaded by Tolkien at the end though :/

    No offense to Eowyn but she’s not my cup of tea?

    … well.

    This post is about Ian McKellen. And … he comments on specific characters. I… don’t know what you’re expecting at all.
