    Billionaire Sean Parker had a lavish, Lord of the Rings-themed wedding back in 2013. Now, it's come to light that the Napster founder and Facebook's first president offered to pay actor Ian McKellan $1.5 million to dress up as Gandalf and officiate the wedding. McKellan said no.

    "I was offered one-and-a-half million dollars to marry a very famous couple in California, which I would perhaps have considered doing but I had to go dressed as Gandalf," McKellan told the Daily Daily Mail (via AV Club). "So I said, 'I am sorry, Gandalf doesn't do weddings.'"

    The offer was reportedly made by an intermediary, not Parker himself.

    Parker spent an estimated $4.5 million on his wedding to singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas in the woods of Big Sur, California. He even hired Lord of the Rings costume designer Ngila Dickson to make Middle-earth outfits for all 364 guests, including Metallica's Lars Ulrich and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, to wear for the event.
