Angry McKellen Slams Wikipedia.com

Actor SIR IAN MCKELLEN has launched a scathing attack on Wikipedia.com after seeing an inaccurate profile of his life on the popular internet encyclopedia web site. The LORD OF THE RINGS star is unimpressed with the careless biography available to members of the public and wishes the internet site would update his details so fans aren't misled. Complaining to film magazine, Empire, MCKellen moans, "It's thoroughly objectionable. It's just taken, as the basis of my career, an article that was written about five years ago, why doesn't someone correct it?"

Sir Ian's comments have surprised me If Sir Iancan find time with his busy schedule to delve intohis biography in wikipedia ,( the vanity of the man ) he could find two minutes or so todiscretely ask for amendments.I'm even more surprised to find HIS honoured namein any encyclopedia. Now Sir Laurence Olivier is a different matter altogether!!Yours etc etc.....
