Benedict Cumberbatch accepts his GQ award 2014

GO HOME YOU’RE DRUNK 

Benedict Cumberbatch, the ubiquitous Sherlock star, found that you can always rely on friends to keep your feet (rather crudely) on the ground. Presenting him with the GQ actor of the year award, Dan Stevens, star of Downton Abbey, said that his pal had a face like a “startled otter” and recalled:


“I first met him when he was the hyper-intelligent Stephen Hawking. He then gave a genius turn as the hyper-intelligent University Challenge captain in Starter for Ten. For years since he’s been a hyper-intelligent super-sleuth, a hyper-intelligent Star Trek baddie and we all eagerly anticipate his hyper-intelligent Alan Turing. He must be a truly sensational actor because, in real life, he is thick as pig s***.”
