Sherlock’s Bennedict Cumberbatch says he wants a baby but can’t get anyone pregnant, and wants to get stoned and do a comedy!
According to Now Daily, the star, who split from The Thick Of It actress Olivia Poulet after more than 10 years together in 2011, has wanted children for years but wants to be in a serious relationship before he makes the leap to fatherhood.
Speaking to the website, Cumberbatch commented: “I’ve been broody since I was 12, but I can’t just get anyone pregnant, it has got to be the right person,
“I mean there are always moments and meetings and chance encounters. But to make meaningful relationships is very hard at the moment.”
He could have his pick however, as he has gathered a legion of loyal fans, the self-named Cumberbitches, of which the multi-award winning star commented to the Telegraph Magazine:
“When I’m told of my sex-symbol status and all that nonsense I find it laughable, silly,
“I’m 36 and I’ve been looking at this same old mush all my life.”
Maybe a change of image would help find the posh Sherlock star a new lady to settle down and procreate with, and the actor believes that a leap from serious to silly may be just what the Doctor (Watson) ordered:
“I’d love to do a slacker comedy where I’m just getting stoned”
And who better to help him get in to the role than his latest co-star, Brad Pitt!
Cumberbatch has just finished filming his first film role, playing baddie Khan in the new Star Trek flick, and is due to star opposite Brad Pitt in drama Twelve Years A Slave next year.
Of his co-star, Cumberbatch commented:
“Brad Pitt, Clooney – they’re in a really privileged position where they are the men who get film screen net [a share of box office receipts], and there are about five people in the world who can do that,’ Benedict tells Independent Radar.
“They’re great people to emulate as a business model.”
