Benedict Cumberbatch punches journalist for Keira Knightley

Jun 5 2014, 2:20pm CDT | by

Benedict Cumberbatch once "joke-punched" a journalist for bad-mouthing Keira Knightley.

The 'Atonement' star defended his stunning co-star by lashing out after a member of the press reportedly said something rude about her at an event.

Speaking in the July issue of ELLE UK magazine, Keira recalled: "When I saw him [Benedict] again, I said, 'Did you punch a journalist?' and he was like, 'I f***ing did.' Everybody needs a friend like that."

Despite her budding friendship with Benedict, 37, one thing the pals won't be doing together is karaoke as the 29-year-old actress hates singing in front of people.

She explained: "I hate karaoke. Like, I really, really hate it. I have to be so drunk I'm nearly about to fall down before I sing in front of anybody. It just terrifies me.

"But, also, among the people you go with, there will be somebody who secretly has an amazing voice, and you're just like, 'F*ck off.'"

As well as her hate for public singing, the brunette beauty also has insecurities when she's out and about doing her every day routine because she gives off a "bad energy".

She said: "I have an on/off switch and, when I'm doing publicity, I'm absolutely OK, but when I'm not working and people come up to me, I've not got the head on to handle that. I don't give off a nice energy and that makes me still feel awkward. I think it's dreams and fantasies. People want you to be a specific kind of person and if, in the flesh, you're not, that can be tremendously disappointing."

Film Festival Fashion Fails!

Sep 11 2014 1:36pm CDT | Source: Celeb TV

Hollywood invaded Canada for The Toronto International Film Festival and left their fashion sense in the States! Robert Downey Jr. showed up to the Dolce & Gabbana TIFF party in a suit that looked more like pajamas. Kristen Bell's baby bump style had us confused. And guess which look we thought was more suited for a Star Wars game? You'll have to see Keira Knightley's frock to believe it. And check out the beautiful Julianne Moore's poorly fitted dress that was ...

Keira Knightley’s TIFF style, Stella, Chanel & more: which is your favorite?

Sep 11 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I was so obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch this week that I sort of forgot to cover Keira Knightley’s fashion for the most part – her (fug) Dolce & Gabbana dress barely got a mention the other day. But Keira was really bringing the fashion p0rn to TIFF this week, and it’s worth discussing. First off, we have this lovely navy Michael van der Ham dress that she wore last night to the (very windy) carpet for Laggies. I would ...

This Woman's Question For Benedict Cumberbatch Will Make You Cringe With Horror

Sep 11 2014 9:35am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

We all know that Benedict Cumberbatch has very dedicated fans, but sometimes the more overeager of the self-proclaimed "Cumberbitches" can make things a bit awkward for the star. Benedict joined the cast of his new film, The Imitation Game, in Toronto on Tuesday to screen the Alan Turing-centered flick and take part in a Q&A. Unfortunately, while at the Q&A, things got a little weird when one female fan asked Benedict point-blank if she could "feast on [h ...

Best Actress Race, Still on for Julianne Moore? Still Alice

Sep 9 2014 10:17pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Everyone's talking about it: This year's two female acting categories are, at this admittedly early date, looking extremely thin. In the lead actress category, of what has already been screened, the one and only slam-dunk contender is Reese Witherspoon (Wild). Of what is still to come, Meryl Streep (Into the Woods) could get in, Amy Adams (Big Eyes) is always a possibility and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) has a plum part — but really, who knows?This possible opening has been recognized b ...

Toronto, Day 5: A Different Steve Carell And The Sad Tale Of Alan Turing

Sep 9 2014 7:39am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Steve Carell is not unrecognizable in Foxcatcher, from director Bennett Miller (who also made Moneyball and Capote) but it's instantly clear that his transformation is meant to be substantial. Carell plays the very rich and very strange (and very real) John du Pont, who in 1996 killed Dave Schultz (played here by Mark Ruffalo), an Olympic wrestler who was working as a coach in the elite wrestling program du Pont operated on his enormous estate. The story begins with D ...
