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."

The Colorado town of Telluride usually has a population of about 2,300, but it grows considerably for its annual film festival.; Credit: David McNew/Getty Images If the Academy Awards were a baseball game, the Telluride Film Festival would be batting clean-up. Opening Aug. 29 and running through Labor Day, the 41st annual festival in this remote mountain resort doesn’t aim to be a bellwether for anything Oscar-related. Yet festival programmers in recent years have demonstrated an in ...

Julia Roberts in a blue Elie Saab mini at the Emmys: exhausting or adorable?

Aug 26 2014 6:55am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

SO MUCH JULIA. Julia was one of the few “movie stars” who deigned to appear at last night’s Emmys. And much like Matthew McConaughey, Julia lost her Emmy race (to Fabulous Kathy Bates) and her sore-loser face made me laugh and laugh. And then there was some instant-karma when I made my sore-loser face when Benedict Cumberbatch won and he wasn’t even there. So, karma is a bitch. Noted. Plus, ...

I Took the Ice Bucket Challenge . . . but Not For ALS

Aug 25 2014 10:33am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

I've always been a philanthropic person. As a child, I spent many nights setting tables and serving food at fundraising dinners. In college, I joined a dance company that volunteered with various organizations and also donated all the proceeds from its annual show to charity. But when a friend recently dared me to douse myself in ice water to benefit the ALS Association, I had some hesitations. Now, before you judge, I'm not one of those haters who thinks the dare does not ...
