Ian McKellen Does Not Have Prostate Cancer

British actor Ian Mckellen watches Switzerland's Roger Federer play against Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro during their group B singles match in the round robin stage on the sixth day of the ATP World Tour Finals tennis tournament in London on November 10, 2012.

Yesterday, the news went around that Ian McKellen has been battling prostate cancer for years. Well, McKellen's agent has since denied this, saying, “No, he does not have prostate cancer," and that his quotes were "taken out of context and from an interview from years ago." Either way, it's great to know he's healthy.
