Benedict Cumberbatch loves Sophie Hunter because she’s so accepting of his fame.
The 38-year-old ‘Imitation Game’ star admits it’s tough to retain a sense of normality given his huge fan base, but insists his soon-to-be-wife handles the attention brilliantly.
He shared: ”I want to normalise this part of our lives.
”She’s proud of my work, she’s proud of me, and she loves me. That’s the bottom line, isn’t it? That’s one of the reasons it’s a good fit. It could be a really difficult thing, but she’s just so in command of it.”
Asked whether the couple – who met on the set of 2009’s ‘Burlesque Fairytale’ – intend to start a family in the near future, he told People: ”I’ve got to be very coy on that one. Very silent.”
And despite achieving incredible levels of fame, Benedict insists he still appreciates the simple things in life.
He explained: ”I’m a homebody. I love to stay in at night, light a fire, have a whiskey and watch a movie or read a good book.
”People forget about books. They’re always just turning on the television, but reading a good book is the most nourishing thing you can do.”
