Scottish actor Alan Cumming keeps upsetting pal SIR Ian McKellen by talking about his large penis.

Cumming admits his X-Men 2 co-star has often impressed him with the size of his genitalia - and he can't keep the fact to himself. The actor says, "The last time I mentioned it in public the next day I was in London in a book shop and my phone rang and I answered it, and he went, 'Slut.'"

"I was like, 'Oh, hi Ian, are you in town?' 'Yes, darling, I was watching television last night, I saw you talking about my penis.'"

But that didn't stop Cumming from chatting about his pal's privates on Graham Norton's new American chat show THE GRAHAM NORTON EFFECT on Thursday night (08JUL04).

The cheeky Scot revealed he visited nudist beach Wreck Beach with McKellen while they were shooting X Men 2 in Vancouver, Canada - and the thespian's fans were very impressed.

Cumming revealed, "He said, 'I'd love to go to this nude beach,' and I'm like, 'OK,' so we took HONEY, my dog and we went to this nude beach.

"These girls came up and said, 'Are you Ian McKellen...?' and they gave him a big thumbs up for his (penis). I have to say that Ian is very well endowed."
