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."

Duchess Kate & her family could get a private screening of ‘The Imitation Game’

Oct 13 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Did you guys see this People Magazine article a few days ago? It’s all about whether People Mag should refer to The Artist Formerly Known as Kate Middleton as “Princess Kate” or “Duchess Kate” or “Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge” or whatever. We’ve had that debate so many times before. Back in 2011, just after William and Kate got married, I made the editorial decision to refer to her as “Duchess Kate” in headlines, even though ...

'The Imitation Game' will not feature Alan Turing’s sexuality as a major plot point

Sep 18 2014 3:28pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

The victory of The Imitation Game at the Toronto film festival, from which I’ve just returned, seals the deal for the biopic of Alan Turing to dominate the Oscars, just as previous winners 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire have in years gone by. The Brits are coming! Again! So why my sinking heart? Partly it’s because – unlike 12 Years a Slave – The Imitation Game simply isn’t very stirring. It’s neither turkey nor lion, a solid three-star job. Benedict Cumberbatch i ...
