why have I not seen this before?
Sir Ian McKellen, on whether he prefers Legolas or Aragorn
“In the Fifties and Sixties, the life of a gay man was a secret. Homosexuality was illegal, so you didn’t draw attention to yourself. But coming out is the best thing I ever did and I’ve never met a gay person who didn’t think the same. Even now there are young actors who want careers as romantic leading men and the best thing is not to reveal you’re gay. I suppose I used to wonder if I’d be allowed to play Romeo if I came out. Eventually, I thought if you compromise to the extent of lying about yourself, is there any job in the world that’s worth that? I don’t think there is. It’s still a sensitive issue in Hollywood, though.” (December 2012)

Ian’s facial response is just brilliant. LIKE OH YES LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT.
So, I made reaction gifs. Feel free to use. :D
