made me think twice today. The Hobbit star was mistaken for a homeless man in his shabby clothes for his latest play, Waiting for Godot.

McKellen's comment on a stranger's kindness to him will touch your heart:

During the dress rehearsal of 'Godot', I crouched by the stage door of the Comedy Theatre, getting some air, my bowler hat at my feet [and] seeing an unkempt old man down on his luck, a passer-by said, 'Need some help, brother?' and put a dollar in my hat.

McKellan's good Samaritan, who didn't even recognize him, just goes to show that you can't judge people by their appearance.

Share this if you think kindness is always worth it!
