After series four, all of these articles started popping up about Benedict and Martin having a "frosty relationship," never interacting outside of the show, not having the warmth of people who have worked together for years, etc. It's strange that these rumors are only starting now and that no one working on the series has contradicted any of it. What is your take on this?
Honestly? Same song and dance happens after every season. Like personally I hate the paps and the gossip rags, like ffs, they treat celebrities like these ethereal beings. Like my BEST FRIENDS ALL LIVE IN DIFFERENT CITIES. I don’t spend every fucking waking hour talking to them or driving 2 or 5 or 10 or 24 hours to see them every week. Like Ben and Martin have JOBS and FAMILIES and LIVES. Like, they’re doing normal adult things???? I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE NOT CONSIDERED HUMAN BEINGS?? Like, I ship freebatch ‘til the end of time, but good god, even I KNOW that they have actual LIVES and know that they are still friends when they’re not on set. Good god.
ANYWAY. That’s my gripe with rags. I don’t believe it for a second. I have eyes:
AND NEVER FORGET WHEN MARTIN REACHED OVER TO TOUCH BEN:
Their body language speaks volumes to me. Anyway, even if they did have a frosty relationship, that’s honestly none of anyone’s business but their own.
