Ian McKellen just shared the most handsome throwback photo of himself to Twitter this morning (26 July).

In a short and sweet tweet, the Lord of the Rings actor simply wrote: ‘#TBT 1960s The Black’

Talk about a stud, hey.

It’s not the first (or even second) time he’s shared a cute little throwback photo of himself and we’re certainly not complaining.

Neither are the people who responded to this latest shot.

One Twitter user replied: ‘You dont look a day over amazing.’

Another responded: ‘Such an amazing, beautiful photo of such a handsome and very talented young man who would go on to become a legend and an icon. That gaze and those eyes haven’t changed at all in the decades since this photo was taken and now. Pretty impressive.’

But mostly people replied with thirsty gifs.
