“I’ve had prostate cancer for six or seven years,” he tells the magazine. “When you have got it you monitor it and you have to be careful it doesn’t spread. But if it is contained in the prostate it’s no big deal.”

He adds: “Many, many men die from it but it’s one of the cancers that is totally treatable so I have ‘waitful watching.’ I am examined regularly and it’s just contained, it’s not spreading. I’ve not had any treatment.”



Ian McKellen can next be seen in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which will be released December 14, 2012.
