Benedict Cumberbatch Once Punched a Journalist for Insulting Keira Knightley!

Benedict Cumberbatch poses for photos while attending the Men’s Final during the 2014 French Open held at Roland Garros on Sunday (June 8) in Paris, France.

Also in attendance at the match was Oscar-winning actor Jean Dujardin.

In a recent interview, Keira Knightley revealed that Benedict once punched a journalist for saying something insulting about her. BBC Radio 2 reviewer Mark Kermode said a rude comment about her acting ability and then referred to her as “Ikea Knightley.”

“When I saw [Benedict] again, I said, ‘Did you punch a journalist?’ and he was like, ‘I f***ing did.’ Everybody needs a friend like that,” Keira said (via BBC).

FYI: Benedict is wearing a Lacoste parka and polo shirt.
