It’s time to delete Sherlock from the series record as the Brit actor reportedly gets a girlfriend…
Sherlock actor and ultimate-cheekbones-possessor Benedict Cumberbatch is no longer a viable romantic life option. Page Six are reporting the British actor has found love. Cumberbatch’s last major relationship was with fellow thespian Olivia Poulet. The couple were together on-and-off for twelve years before ending things for good in 2010. Afterwards there appeared to be a dryspell. No more. Rebecca Eaton, a producer with Masterpiece Theatre dropped the bombshell at a panel at Cannes and why are we only hearing about this now? Eaton was talking about Obama nearly ripping Lady Grantham’s dress at a White House dinner with the Downton Abbey cast when she illuminated the audience on her other job. Eaton claims to be “helping British hottie Benedict Cumberbatch find a new love interest. She wouldn’t say whom the “Sherlock” actor has met, but she said it’s time for all those “Cumberbitches” — the name used by his huge base of female followers — to move on.”
We just did a quick google and Tom Hiddleston still seems to be single so transfer your feelings for Handsome Men of the British Empire on over.
