Benedict Cumberbatch conducts civil patnership

Jul 24 2013, 3:48am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Benedict Cumberbatch has officiated a same sex wedding.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star married one of his closest male friends and his partner in a civil partnership in Ibiza on Saturday night (07.20.13) and although he was nervous because it was the first time he carried out the duty he was honored to do it for his pal.

He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "It's a very private, lovely thing to be asked to do. Of course I'm going to make a joke after it if it goes well - 'I do weddings.' Next will be children's parties and bat mitzvahs. It was mainly Jewish and gay audience."

Among the guests in attendance was writer-and-journalist Julie Burchill, who described the ceremony as a great occasion and a "blast".

She said: "The hotel was lush, the bridegrooms were beautiful, and the man who married them (to each other) was Benedict Cumberbatch -- so yes, it was quite a blast."

Benedict flew into Ibiza on Friday (07.19.13), which was his 37th birthday, and the same day he discovered he'd been nominated for an Emmy for his performance in 'Parade's End', and the actor admitted two things just added to the special weekend.

Speaking about his nomination, the 'Sherlock' star said: "My friend doesn't even know this. I've been so busy trying to get luggage from one airport to another, I haven't even gotten around to telling him. I managed to tell my mum and dad, who are over the moon."

Chris Hemsworth did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge too: cute or too many clothes?

Aug 19 2014 10:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I really don’t understand why men aren’t taking off their shirts for the Ice Bucket Challenge. It also occurs to me that Tom Hiddleston failed to nominate his friend Chris Hemsworth during his Ice Bucket Challenge. I guess Tommy wanted to name-check his big brother Benedict Cumberbatch and his new BFF Luke Evans. What is going on with Luke and Tommy, by the way? They seem exceptionally tight these days. Anyway, Chris Hemsworth did the challenge and posted it ...

Tom Hiddleston takes the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS, doesn’t take off his shirt

Aug 19 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

By now, I’m sure all of the Dragonflies have seen this and already collapsed into a damp dragonfly pile. But for the rest of you, Tom Hiddleston accepted Nathan Fillion’s “nomination” to do the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness for ALS (although Tommy is a little dyslexic so he hashtagged #ASL – American Sign Language, huzzah!). Yesterday, Tommy joined Chris Pratt, Robert Downey Jr. and others ...

Tom Hiddleston Does Ice Bucket Challenge, Nominates Benedict Cumberbatch

Aug 18 2014 1:42pm CDT | Source: PopSugar

We've seen tons of celebrities participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but Tom Hiddleston's might be our favorite yet. The British actor channeled his usual charm as he accepted the challenge across the pond from Nathan Fillion, and he graciously wore a white shirt while doing it - we've never seen ice-cold water look so hot. The best part comes at the end, but we're not sure what we're more excited about: ...
