Ian McKellen Considers Planning Funeral Rehearsal for Himself

The 'Lord of the Rings' star already envisions how his funeral arrangements would be like, planning it to be quite the party.

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.

In an upcoming documentary, "McKellen: Playing The Part", the beloved thespian reveals he'd like his "celebratory" memorial to take place in a theatre, adding, "(It would be) free admission and I'd want a lot of beautiful people (there).

"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!' "
