AceShowbiz - Sir Ian McKellen is considering planning a funeral rehearsal, because he thinks his own send-off will be quite the party. The 78-year-old "Lord of the Rings" star admits he often thinks about death and he's happy with his own funeral arrangements.

"When I finished this (plan) I thought, 'Ooh, I'd love to go to that funeral,' so I hope I might arrange a dress rehearsal before I go."
But he isn't looking forward to his final years, adding, "As I see other people getting decrepit and unable to work, I think, 'Well, that may well happen to me!' "
