Benedict Cumberbatch Visits 'Ellen' For the First Time & Talks Fans Calling Themselves 'Cumberbitches'
Benedict Cumberbatch is all smiles as he makes his very first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Wednesday (January 14).
The 38-year-old actor talked to Ellen about expecting a baby with his fiancee Sophie Hunter, photo bombing Meryl Streep at the Golden Globes, and opened up about his fans naming themselves the Cumberbitches.
“They did, I definitely didn¹t. That’s part of my problem,” Benedict expressed. “I just went ladies, this is wonderful I’m very flattered, but has this not set feminism back a little bit? Empower yourselves if you’re going to get silly about a guy with maybe a little bit more of a sort of you know a high-regard, self regard thing. But yeah, they were very sweet. They wrote back and were like well we didn’t mean any harm to feminism we¹re just having a little bit of fun with your name.”
