Benedict Cumberbatch Officiates at Gay Wedding in Spain
British actor Benedict Cumberbatch officiated at the wedding of a longtime friend in Ibiza, Spain today. Gorgeous, amazing setting. And before the random speculation begins, BC himself is not gay, nor do I think he is ordained as this FB poster says. It was a civil ceremony.
These pictures are currently public on FB, but they may disappear if the participants catch wind that they're making the rounds on the internet. Personally, I'd want the whole world to see this glorious moment.
He should officiate at every wedding, just because when he speaks the most ludicrous drivel sounds devastatingly important and romantic.
From Star Trek dialogue to hand-written wedding vows, he makes it all sound wonderful!
Is BC gay?
R3, you have rather bad reading comprehension, do you not?
It's possible Ben got one of those mail order ordinations you can get in the U.S. John Waters did it so he could officiate at the wedding of Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder (which never came off, but he did baptize Traci Lords.)
ya, he's gay
He appears to be dressed as Sherlock, and can that be Mark Gatiss and his husband?
Cool! What a setting too!
Sorry, I didn't read r1's link before posting. I'm ready for my spanking now.
that's Ivan Massow's FB. He's aged into a handsomer, openly gay version of Morrissey.
Just reading about Ivan - interesting life and some good photos ( check out Joan Collins).
What happened to BC's thread, I can't seem to open it.
I've been wondering too, has it been deleted, and why?
It's not deleted I still have it on my thread watcher but when I click on it it just keeps loading and loading.
Just the mention of his name puts his awful voice in my head. I always think of Monty Python, esp the upper class twit of the year. The winner shot himself.
Buuump what happened to the BC thread do we need to hire Sherlock holmes?
Nothing extremely interesting has really happened anyway (watch that jinx it). But he'll be at TIFF.
August will be a pretty quiet month for him as he'll be wrapping up the third series finale of Sherlock. September is going to be a huge month for him with the triple premiere at TIFF. Can't wait.
While I'm sad the previous BC thread fell into a loading limbo, I'm glad this one's still around.
Can't wait for his next 4 films, the TIFF coverage and the speculation on the next gal holding hands / kissing him.
Wow, I have to say I can do without the speculating on his love life. Of course, I would like to know who he is dating but spare me the venom and trolls on this thread.

August is anything but quiet in Osage County.
R22 wink wink.
There was a gay wedding between two of the producers of Tired Old Queen at the Movies. Tired Old Queen dedicated the movie 'Maurice' to them.
I forgot he filmed Little Favour when he was so thin for Sherlock. He looks so dead without some muscle...
I know it wasn't his nature frame and hard for him to maintain but his body was so hot in STID
Holy Fucking Gorgeous. Everyone should get married there (or a fabulously reasonable facsimile) and Benedict Cumberbatch should officiate for us all. I'm sure he did a smashing job.
Cumberbitch @R21 - I'm so sorry, but you've accidentally wandered into the wrong website. Bon chance.
And then I felt the Cumberbitches cry out in terror and suddenly silenced.....Seriously though, how can you not still love someone in some way after dating them for 10+ years (when it didn't end in complete disaster). Looks like that one person on here was right about some harboring affection.
R27, I agree. I wonder how Olivia feels about Benedict or even considered of getting back with him, despite all the recent gossip with the blonde and red-haired ladies? Whatever happens,I hope it all works out for them. I thought he and Olivia were a cute couple.
Well she was the one who broke it off (according to here so grain of salt)
I wonder if he and Olivia will get back together once his career starts to slow down a bit. They were a really cute couple and sometimes it is easier to try to fix what's wrong in an established relationship than to try to build something new with someone else.
That awkward moment when you're filming in costume but bystanders can't tell if it's you or the character because of the fashion choices you've made in the past.....
Officially dropped out of Del Toro's Crimson Ridge.
Could just be overcommitment and he had to lose something and didn't want to drop the Turing project, but I wouldn't be surprised if there's script problems too.
Second high profile drop out (Emma Stone was the first) and heard Del Toro was trying a massive script rewrite.
It could be Oscar campaign, another project, or serious exhaustion.
The Assange film opens next month, right?
It must be oscar campaigning. If he gets a nomination with 5th Estate he can definitely turn it into a win with his next movie and that movie is not del toro's horror flick. I doubt he will win with Fifth Estate but as I said if he campaigns right for the nomination he will win with the Imitation Game next year.
I know I said it was a possibility for an Oscar campaign, I don't know if BC is actually seriously dying to have serious fame and recognition like other actors in his position *cough* Hiddleston *cough* so who knows what the reason is. Emma Stone dropped out too so it's possible that it was creative differences.
Wonder how long it took Hiddleston to call Del Toro to line up for the sloppy seconds?
I was literally just thinking that. But Coriolanus....
If he's straight and there are a bunch of dim straight cunts who are talking about him, why are they doing so on a site for gay people?
Oh, haven't you noticed, r39? DL is now the official internet Fangirl Central.
R39. I guess because he's very popular right now and people like to talk about him. Annoying at times but that's just the Internet for ya. No need to be insulting. I'm guessing you wouldn't be too happy if somebody spoke about gay people posting on predominantly straight sites in the terms you used. So maybe be a bit more accommodating. It will pass.
I was really disappointed that he dropped out of Crimson Peak. Supposedly it was supposed to be a pretty sexy role and we really haven't seen that from Benedict yet. I really wanted to see if he had finally figured out how to kiss properly.
R42 maybe that's why he's out?
After Wentworth,will it be Benedict`s turn?
Wentworth Miller was no surprise though. Never heard anything about Cumberbatch. So I'm guessing he's either straight or extremely good at pretending to be. And given his tendency to say too much in interviews I'm sure he would have dropped a few clues by now so I'm betting on straight. But then again I hardly ever win a bet.
His kissing skills really are godawful. He seriously needs to practice.
I volunteer to be his practice buddy.
Cumberbatch is certainly husband material.
Bumping the thread for this article. Since when the model was an heiress?? Sorry to judge but she's judging harshly on the English folk's (male & female) mannerisms and drinking. Good luck with the play and reality show...at least she spoke nicely of Cumberbatch.
