Benedict Cumberbatch On His Fiancée Sophie Hunter – ‘It’s Amazing We Met Each Other’
A lot of fuss has been generating around Benedict Cumberbatch’s new leading lady and fiancée, and now the actor has decided to officially introduce Sophie Hunter to the ever-curious public eye.
It’s amazing to find somebody you love
The British actor attended the Hollywood Film Awards where he talked about his role as Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game,” and the 38-year-old Benedict spoke proudly about his loved wife-to-be.
“It’s an amazing thing to find somebody you love. It’s amazing to find somebody you love at all, let alone somebody who loves you back in the same way and to the same degree. And if that is amazing, well, considering how busy both Sophie and I are, it’s a minor miracle that we met each other at all in the way we did,” Benedict admitted.
“To have Sophie in my life is something I am extremely grateful for and very excited about. It’s a bit of a golden moment for me right now and I am loving it.”
The two started at the beginning of this year and the two managed to keep their relationship low profile for quite a while, until Benedict decided to go public with the news of their engagement earlier this month.
“I think I’ll be having a very private wedding,” said Sherlock star who went public with the engagement via traditional announcement in The Times.
“I would have done that even if I had not been in this strange, heightened position that I am of being a famous actor. It was really an announcement to my friends and my family, because, believe me, as many people as I told after the moment, I couldn’t spend all my time on the phone.”
No official news about when we can expect the wedding itself. Stay tuned.
