Anonymous said: What is this thing about Benedict saying he is taking and people asking him personal question? What happened? Don't have to tell me if you don't want yo.
This article from Vulture can explain things better than me.
I’m posting the “important” part, in case you don’t want to read everything:
Then a woman got up to the mic and declared, “Benedict, I actually think you’re quite yummy.” Everyone laughed. So she repeated herself. “You really are quite yummy.”
"When is the question coming?" Toronto Film Festival director Cameron Bailey interjected. The woman said she had two really important questions, both for Cumberbatch, of course. One was what part of the role of WWII hero codebreaker Alan Turing did he identify with most. And the second very important question, keeping with the theme of the film, which "is that it’s okay to be a little bit different… Would I be able to feast on your yumminess?"
Keira Knightley slapped Cumberbatch’s leg she was laughing so hard, then turned toward him, exaggeratedly anticipating his answer.
Cumberbatch, beet red, composed himself. "I’ll answer the first part of your question, which is… Christ. Sorry, I’m taken. I did not go into this Q&A about a gay icon who killed himself at 41 thinking I’d have to answer questions from someone who wants to taste my deliciousness.”
I LOVED his answer btw like really I didn’t think I could love this man more than I already do, bUT DAT ANSWER GUYS
(We don’t know though if he’s really taken, if it was just an excuse or if he meant to say “i’m taken aback”)
If you think this sort of behaviour is okay, I want absolutely nothing to do with you, full stop.
Yeah that kind of crap is really not cool and it ruins it for all the other fans who may have had good questions. These sorts of really creepy inappropriate questions keep cropping up a lot lately with various celebrities and its not fricking funny all it doe is make everyone uncomfortable and make the person you’re asking the question to not want to do Q&A’s.
