Gandalf the Broke?

Ian McKellen, currently playing Waiting for Godot's Estragon in Australia, tweets:
'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.'

Hmm, maybe underpaid actors could augment their incomes...
