Hindustan Times Article: Benedict Cumberbatch

Is newly-married Benedict Cumberbatch the perfect husband?

  • Sanya Panwar, Hindustan Times, New Delhi
  • He might not have won the Best Actor Oscar on Monday, but Benedict Cumberbatch, without doubt, enjoyed the show and felt like a winner (he raised eyebrows when he was caught on camera swigging from his hip flask, couple of minutes into the ceremony). And he was ready to show us how madly in love he is.

In case, you missed, Cumberbatch and his new wife Sophie Hunter made the cutest and most loved-up duo on the Oscars 2015 red carpet. They took their newly-wed bliss to the awards gala with some very sweet red carpet PDA. The following photos of the couple are sure to warm your heart.

Cumberbatch, 38, who tied the knot with his pregnant fiance Sophie, 36, on Valentine’s Day, couldn’t be more in love and basically proved he’s the most caring man alive.

The newest ‘it’ couple held hands and lovingly gazed at each other after making a grand entrance. But the cutest moment came when Benedict held Sophie, kissed her hand, and touched her baby bump. Heart exploded.

We particularly love that Benedict asks his wife the same cute question on every red carpet. We know that despite being an actor and director herself, Sophie isn’t quite as experienced as Cumberbatch when it comes to red carpet appearances and Benedict does all he can to help her hold it all together.

The always thoughtful (and now publicly passionate) Sherlock star makes sure to check on his lovely wife by asking her this one cute question, every time they hit a high-pressure do together,”Are you okay?”

At the BAFTAs earlier in February, Benedict turned to Sophie as they were practically blinded by flashbulbs and asked: “Are you alright?”. And, as he made his way over to the gaggle of press waiting for him to do interviews, he turned back and asked this, “Are you sure you’re gonna be alright Sophie?”. Now, ain’t that sweet?

And then at the Oscars on Monday, Benedict did the exact same thing as they posed for photos on the red carpet. And then kissed his brand new wife on her cheek. Yes, we were jealous.

Need another reason to admire Benedict, the husband? Try this: The Imitation Game actor seemed content to let his bride steal his thunder by wearing a daring gown that almost concealed her baby bump but showed off lots of leg.

So, at the Oscars, while Benedict went with a smashing white tux, Sophie channeled old Hollywood glamour in a red dress held together with safety pins. And the good husband Benedict is, he proudly let his new wife steal the spotlight at Hollywood’s biggest night.

And if asking Sophie, again and again, if she was ‘okay’ with the overwhelming amount of attention was not enough, Cumberbatch indulged in some serious passion and packed in some PDA by warmly embracing his pregnant wife as she showed off her bump, soon after they got married. The lovebirds stopped to indulge in some rare PDA three days after their big day, when they stopped to admire the views of the ocean along California’s iconic Pacific Coast Highway, while on their road trip honeymoon..

The precious moment came at a petrol station as Sophie showed off her blossoming bump in a summery dress. With their first child together due in the spring, the couple stopped to fill up their car, where Sophie threw her arms around her man and gave him a big kiss. Ok, Benedict and Sophie are juts too cute!

Hunter and Cumberbatch announced in early January that they’re expecting a child together and married in a simple, intimate ceremony on Valentine’s Day on the Isle of Wight.

Mr & Mrs Cumberbatch At The Oscars :) – Daily Mail

Benedict Cumberbatch and his pregnant wife Sophie looked incredibly loved up as they attended the 87th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday evening.

It was a special night for the actor, who was nominated for his role as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, but sadly lost out to Eddie Redmayne.

However, it looks like Benedict was well prepared to drown his sorrows with a hip-flask he jokingly swigged from throughout the live broadcast.

The British actor took a swig from the silver canister during Neil Patrick Harris’ opening monologue, just when the camera cut to the Best Actor nominee.

Benedict, 38, wore a stand-out white tuxedo jacket over black trousers and a bow tie as he walked the red carpet at the Hollywood And Highland Center.

Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be for the Imitation game star, but he took home the real prize, in the form of his wife Sophie Hunter, who looked absolutely stunning at the event.

Despite her bump starting to show, Sophie didn’t play it safe in the sartorial stakes either. She rocked a Lanvin asymmetric dress that featured a cut-away side – very risque indeed for someone expecting, but it looked fabulous!

She completed the look with a classy up-do, a gold cuff, clutch and heels, which really set off her look.

Sophie wore a stunning red one-shoulder dress by Lanvin and a matching slick of ruby lipstick. Her hair was styled into a Hollywood retro up do which flattered her features.

They later attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party where Benedict indulged in a cocktail or two, while Sophie stuck to soft drinks.

At the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts he chatted to Joan and Jackie Collins as well as Naomi Watts who presented an award with.

The actor also caught up with Selma star David Oyelowo who was sadly overlooked in the Best Actor category for his turn as Martin Luther King.

Meanwhile, Benedict’s parents are backing Eddie Redmayne to win the award. Cumberbatch is nominated alongside the Theory of Everything star in the Best Actor category.

Whilst Timothy Carlton and Wanda Ventham are ‘proud as punch’ of their son, they think Eddie will pip him to the post.

Wow: Sophie's dress had a daring thigh-split going up the side which showed off her gold strappy sandals 

All that glitters: She teamed her number with a gold clutch bag and wore drop earrings

So cute: Benedict brought his parents along on the night. As his son spoke to the media, his father leapt up waving his arms for a photobomb prank

Newlyweds: They gazed into one another's eyes as they walked the red carpet together

Wanda told The Sun On Sunday: ‘I’m so proud. I’m as proud as punch. We got here yesterday and we are so excited and happy. Though I think Eddie will clean the board.’

Timothy added: ‘It’s such an exciting moment for us as a family. I don’t think even a good luck charm will work. Unless we count! I’m very proud. As an actor we understand how hard he’s had to work to get to this point.’

Benedict brought his parents along on the night. As his son spoke to the media , Carlton leapt up waving his arms for a photobomb prank.

Happy couple: They shared some romantics moments on the red carpet earlier at the ceremony

‘I’ve wanted to do that ever since I saw Ben photobomb U2 and Meryl Streep ‘, Carlton said later. ‘This was certainly the best place to photobomb your son’, said Carlton.

Cumberbatch’s parents are both actors and they also play the same role on Sherlock.

The star has had a great year so far, after tying the knot with Sophie Hunter last week.

Benedict Cumberbatch has officially tied the knot with his fiancee Sophie Hunter, according to Us Weekly.

Us Weekly has confirmed that the couple got married in a private ceremony at the 12th century St Peter and St Paul’s church in the Isle of Wight.

The couple had a stunning reception with close family and friends at the Mottistone Manor, an insider revealed. The venue includes a 20th century garden backdrop and ‘Mediterranean-style charm’.

This is the first marriage for both Cumberbatch, 38, and Hunter, 36.

All guests had reportedly been sworn to secrecy over the location, with workmen spotted on site earlier this week putting up several white tee-pee tents. Roads near the supposed venue are said to have been closed off for the celebrations.

Martin Freeman, Benedict’s Sherlock co-star, is rumoured to have been among the celebrity…
