Benedict Cumberbatch on Meryl Streep: ‘I just couldn’t act, I was in awe of her’

You know this is The Year of Cumberbatch, right? It’s also The Year of McAvoy (he has a bunch of movies coming out in 2013), but today I just want to talk about Benedict Cumberbatch and his amazing 2013. This summer he stars in his first big-budget popcorn flick Star Trek Into Darkness. Then he has Twelve Years a Slave (with Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, etc). Then at the end of the year, he’s got three major films for the awards season – the second Hobbit film (The Desolation of Smaug), August: Osage County and The Fifth Estate, where he plays Julian Assange in what will probably be the first of ten Assange bio-pics. I’m just saying… for the Cumberbitches, 2013 is a GREAT year.

Anyway, I have some assorted Cumberbatch news today. First off, Star Trek Into Darkness has a new international trailer and OMG OMG OMG.

I truly hope that the film (which I will see in theaters) is full-on Cumberbatch. Like, I hope the trailers aren’t lying to me and Cumby is only in the film for like 10 minutes. I hope Cumby is THE STAR. This film looks so good, but let’s be real – I’m only going to see it for Cumberbatch. I don’t give a crap about Chris Pine or anyone else.

Next up: a charming quote from Cumby about working with Meryl Streep in August: Osage County. Meryl is pretty much the star of the ensemble film, and the film just had its first test screening and everyone is talking about how Meryl is going to be nominated for the Best Actress Oscar AGAIN. If she’s nominated for this, it will be her 17th Oscar nomination, I think. Anyway, Cumby is in the film and he said this about working with Meryl: “We had one scene around the table with Meryl and I just couldn’t act. I was in awe of her. She is spellbinding to watch. She really is extraordinary. If you ever have the luck to watch her, she is fantastic.” He’s so cute. I want him to play Meryl’s young lover (in another film, something saucy).

Here are some pics of Meryl at LAX yesterday – I think it’s kind of cool that Meryl gets pap’d at the airport! Better her than Vanessa Hudgens, you know?

    The more they focus on Benedict in the Star Trek promotions, the LESS I want to watch it.

  2. Eve says:

    You bitches back the f*ck off!

    OMG, he looks DELICIOUS in this — that’s it: that’s my favourite alien lizard look. That’s how he looked in our imaginary wedding.

    • Jenna says:

      You want me to help shank skanks for you?

    • T.Fanty says:

      That Star Trek pic is totally worth a shanking. Bring it, woman!

      • Eve says:

        *SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNG*

        (sound of the unsheathing of a shank).

      • Amelia says:

        What the hell are your sheaths made out of Eve?! I think I might have to upgrade my armour if my C/B mercenary business is going to work out … Shit. I need to find a new supplier.

      • Eve says:

        Think about the hardest metal you can find — well, it isn’t made out of that…because I like when the shank breaks and a piece is left inside the wound (festering).

        Oooops, reread your comment. Thought you’re talking about the shanks themselves. The sheaths are also made out of metal (I like that loud, distinctive sound a shank makes when being unsheathed — plus, it scares some less brave bitches away before any actual shanking happens).

      • Amelia says:

        Actually, I did mean the shanks, that was my mistake! Good to know about the sheaths too, though. I assume they are fittingly ornate also?
        At the moment I’ve got an image of you standing in a yellow jumpsuit like Uma Thurman preparing to throw down with anyone who threatens your all-around Cumby dominance…

      • Eve says:

        You mentioned Uma Thurman in a yellow jumpsuit but I couldn’t help thinking “Big Bird” (and Big Bird holding a knife is a hilarious thought).

        Yellow doesn’t flatter my colouring, I think (I’m an olive-skinned, brown-haired girl).

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @ Eve,

        Well then, I shall use another method of mind-alteration. Miss Eyre’s lavender tea is kind of an odd flavor anyway, so you may not even notice you’re being sedated.

        Fanty, Miss Eyre, et.al,

        It’s COLD in this freezer, you guys! Anyone?

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Eve after having to go on a shanking rampage recently to protect My Viking and Chemboy from these wenches I’m finally sympathetic to your plight. Use me as you see fit, I’m awfully good with a hunting knife and nunchucks.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Hey! I’m going to recruit EsCon and Miss Eyre. I hear the latter is deadly with knitting needles and a crumpet-toasting fork.

      • Eve says:

        @ Miss Kiki:

        Your help is much appreciated.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @T.Fanty,

        I am here at the ready, Fanty. I am slugging down high-octane coffee & am
        freshly exfoliated. I wish I had Miss Eyre’s skill with sharp implements. But for weaponry, all I have in the house is a vicious Klingon Bat’Leth, which I don’t want to touch & cannot pronounce.

        Instead of getting into a slut-brawl, I am going to study Scientology, very very fast, so I can simply glare at Eve, sternly, intimidating her & causing her to drop the slutshanks. If that doesn’t work, I am just going to jump up & down on the sofa until back-up arrives.

      • T.Fanty says:

        *tapping toes, waiting for Miss Eyre and EsCon to show*

        I might have to be back later for the Cumber-games. I have to get some writing done today. Let me know when the carnage begins.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Fanty! I hope you’re back soon—Eve has locked me in a freezer. All I know is it’s a freezer in a secret location. Please ask Miss Eyre to bring tea before frostbite sets in, & if she can find me.

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh dear. I must ferry the Heir and Heiress to school so i will miss this particular round but I shall be back to help out. I am leaving a muffin basket and some Lavender Ice Tea – you ladies need to stay hydrated.

        Who am I backing today? Just so I don’t stab the wrong alliance (so embarrassing)

        @Mayor Kiki – I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want CHemboy. I will scrub your floors in vinegar, sew you new drapes, brush you cat just please, for the love of all thing heavenly, work something out with me. I mean, your not using him when your sailing on the Viking Ship of Dongness.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Miss Eyre,

        I hope you will return like this:
        http://www.novaroma.org/vici/images/Lmatubenhurchariots.jpg

        but on a stage-coach, and with knitting needles.

        @EsCon – we will find you! Just warm yourself with thoughts of Cumby’s fiery loins. Once you’re out, we can have him massage your chilly bits.

      • Jenna says:

        I got your back, Eve! *sharpens shanks*

      • Eve says:

        @ Jenna:

        They’re getting bold, aren’t they? I may have to switch from shanks to machine guns soon.

        @ EsCon:

        If Tom “OT Level 9″ Cruise hasn’t been able to control me (and make me watch his movies), do you really think you will? Bitch, please.

      • T.Fanty says:

        *psst, Jenna – she doesn’t share. We do. And we have McAvoy as a back up. And teacakes.

      • Eve says:

        @ T.Fanty:

        How new are you here? Jenna and I used to share my former CB husband Chris Evans.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Rats. That was before my time.

        And.. Chris Evans? Have some pride, woman! That’s like putting down a glass of Veuve to talk about when you used to drink Colt 45.

      • Jenna says:

        @T. Fanty: Truth! Me & Eve got into a MAJOR shank skank fight over Captain Sexy but we learned to share until I got full custody of the Star-Spangled Dong. But then I moved onto being a Hardy Harlot (I still have the rights) but as of late, I’ve been all about the walking sex that is Karl Urban so…you’re out of luck sorry; I’m with Eve. Besides McAvoy doesn’t butter my biscuit. :(

      • Eve says:

        @ T.Fanty:

        Hey, my former CB husband is a perfectly lovely man.

        But then there was that gonorrhea rumour, him going back to Minka Kelly and…Benedict Cumberbatch speaking on my thighs happened.

      • T.Fanty says:

        A gonorrhea rumor? Nice.

        Isn’t he supposed to be nuts? Or is that Chris Pine. The two are fairly interchangeable as far as I can tell.

      • Eve says:

        Well, he’s a bit of a paranoid and has some insecurity issues, but at least he’s honest about it.

      • j.eyre says:

        @ T. Fan – oh my. I have the back half of a Citroen I took a chainsaw to, pulled by a team of Pomeranians – I am not sure it will make the same entrance as your photo. I do have a new plume for my bonnet, though, so I’ll look the part at least.

        @Jenna – what does that mean “McAvoy doesn’t butter my biscuit?” Are you speaking a language other than Earthling? Is it code? Or are you honestly saying you can gaze upon the Mighty Mac and not want to sell you children – present or future – to feel those lips somewhere on your being? My word I envy your superhuman resistance.

        I remember the Captain Sexy wars (I was still a lurker then). I just saw a picture of him that reminded me why you guys fought over him.

      • Jenna says:

        @ J. Evre: The “McAvoy doesn’t butter my biscuit?” is indeed an Earthling language, simply meaning that no tingle, or other reaction happens to the biscuit when I gaze upon this ‘Mighty Mac’.

        Ah, the “Captain Sexy Wars”…I remember them fondly……and the armory that was brought out to fight them. I must say, these CumbyBitch Battles are rather tame.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @j.eyre,

        Miss Eyre, I absolutely love the idea of your Pomeranian-drawn chariot. It strikes fear into my heart. I hope your little Poms have been to the hairdresser/groomer to get that smooth Teddy Bear hairdo, as the sight of tiny teddy bears hauling your war chariot will make bitches stop & re-consider.

        Your new bonnet plume is lovely.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Miss Eyre,

        And once you are done raining down terror on these cheeky wenches, it would be really fun if you could just drive EsCon and I around town in it for a while. Possibly to the tune of the Beastie Boys’ Sabotage. EsCon and I will presume that BYOB (bring your own bonnet) applies.

      • j.eyre says:

        @EsCon and T. Fan – I went with the lion cut for the Poms this season – isn’t it sublime! I am glad you like the new bonnet, I know the chintz is a bit racy for me but I figured, with the breakup and the new relationship – why not step outside my comfort zone a little.

        Now, we have a few issues: Mayor Kiki has aligned with Eve and Jenna. I have just formed a tenuous alliance with Eve myself (and I am so sorry about cutting your hedges, EsCon, but I had to see into that window. I will replace them as soon as Eve let’s me). Since the Mayor is being so selfish with CHemboy, I may have to enter into full combat with her and we know how loyal Eve is. I have never actual fought Eve and that scares me. I am so sorry to drag you into yet another battle but I was able to throw Hiddles over my shoulder and make off with him (making sure nothing dragged on the ground, lest my evening’s plans be spoiled). I can barely sustain CHemboy’s weight on top of me on the settee, trying to lift him and go anywhere would throw my back out.

        And now Jenna is here with her magical ability of being impervious to The Mac’s allure – we might be out of our depth here. But she seems to be throwing shade on our Hissy Fits saying they pale to the mighty battles of old. Oh ladies – what do we do?

        I think we Amelia to chime in. she is always the voice of reason in these matters. Or, at the very least, she can bring some of her lovely fancy fondants to tide us over.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @Miss Eyre,

        Jane! If this isn’t the very pinnacle of duplicity! After everything we’ve been through, you are setting up an alliance with Eve, who would just as soon shank me (and has) as invite me in for coffee?

        I have just had to take all of my delicate linen handkerchiefs out of storage, hand-wash them, hang them on the clothesline to dry (first I had to find a clothesline—Walmart, ladies) & iron them, simply so I could weep bitter tears over the temporary loss of my ally.

        That run-on was for thee, Fanty.

        And it pains me to say this, as I was so looking forward to a ride in the Pomeranian chariot.

        @Eve,

        Somewhere in these comments, a remark I made about slipping an herbal sedative into your coffee with my Renaissance poison ring may have disappeared. I certainly hope that was not misunderstood as a death threat—it was only a suggestion that you take a wee nap. ;-)

      • Eve says:

        @ EsCon:

        No need to explain yourself — in the context of these threads, even a death threat (via poisoning) sounds perfectly reasonable.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @EsCon –

        Here’s Mr. Cumberbatch, looking bemused at your grammatical problem (although, it really wasn’t so bad):
        http://static.tumblr.com/f6c20f401c5d295387e65918f211a218/9jj4dwi/SeUmh0bqe/tumblr_static_tumblr_mf37xkjhjq1s0ar23o1_500.png

        As for Miss Eyre’s betrayal: I say we unleash the madwoman in her attic. Unless that is actually Eve.

        ETA: While looking for a hot cardigan pic, I stumbled across this:
        http://static.tumblr.com/55540293d9f2167f8d52523b576e602c/ylthikw/LhJmfpusw/tumblr_static_benedict-cumberbatch5.jpg

        For once, I am entirely at a loss for words.

      • j.eyre says:

        @EsCon – First of all, you did a marvelous job on the ironing. Really, vast improvement, well done.

        Secondly – *gasp!* They were just hedges! And you said you didn’t like them anyway. You think I would shank you? Have you seen my aim? Why do you think I drive the ambulance – I am more dangerous doing that than entering into battle.

        She gave me shirtless CHemboy – what was I to do? He was shirtless and wet. WET. You think me impregnable? Have you not seen how little it takes to raise my petticoats? Heavens, I make Mayor Kiki look like one of your Mother Superiors (well, no, nobody can do that).

        Well, I am just… I don’t know… I… pass me one of those lovely linens so I might dot my eyes. Abandon you – how could you even think to imply such a damnable slight against me? OH – and now you made me use my potty mouth.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Thank you, Eve! That’s very gracious of you! Even when you were shanking me last week, I reminded myself that it wasn’t personal.

        Was it??

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ MissEyre – I would like to respond, but I am too busy smarting from the sting of your betrayal. And I would like you to remember that Thor’s hammer only allows itself to be handled by those who are worthy.

      • Jenna says:

        Sooooo, are the CumbyBitch Battles over, or…. *cleans off shanks*

      • j.eyre says:

        @T. Fan – *ahem* may I remind you that you and I “met” by you putting one of your shanks to my throat because I was backing EsCon up over Jaguar Holmes.
        @EsCon – Did you not throw me in front of the 914 bus last month because I pointed and said “I want that” to a photo of a scarf that just happened to be on the same page as a Sherlock advertisement? (My neck is much better now, thank YOU)

        Did either one of you consider for ONE MINUTE how useful it would be to have someone on the inside with Eve? Did it not dawn on you that I put this all in place for you? And now look, Eve will never trust me again.

        I have given you both tea, scones, a shoulder to cry on, medical assistance at all hours of the night and day, bacchanalian orgies and soap. Eve has given you what? Tetanus? Staff infections?

        I saw my chance when she presented me with CHemboy Rising On a Clam Shell and I took it. And now that plan is shot to heck. Any more ideas?

        (Please don’t ever imply that I won’t be able to hold Thor’s hammer – it makes me cry.)

        *narrows eyes* T. Fan – did you see Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter? Remember how he was fun and light until he got angry and then spoke in a haunted Scottish accent? Here this next part in a haunted Scottish accent:

        Nobody touches the B!tch in the Attic. She is mine to do with as I see fit. You go near that attic and you will find yourself IN the attic – and you don’t want that. Not my attic.

        Now, profiterole?

      • Eve says:

        “And now look, Eve will never trust me again.”

        AS IF I ever trusted you…

      • j.eyre says:

        @Eve – Oh thank goodness. I trust this means you will still provide me with shirtless CHemboy photos? I feared my shoddy ruse being exposed might cut off my supply.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Oh, Miss Eyre. As if I could stay mad at you.

        Perhaps I’ve just been desensitised by Eve, but I do not feel your threat. Plus, the scottish accent makes me think less of Depp, and more of our forever dongs from the North.

        I will, however, gladly accept the profiterole.

        I have no baked goods in return, but I trust you shall accept this peace offering:

      • T.Fanty says:

        And can somebody please comment on the pic of sweaty Cumby with a lamb, because I’m not sure whether it will be haunting my dreams or my nightmares tonight.

      • j.eyre says:

        T. Fan – well it is nice to have that nastiness out of the way. I will be gone next week and I would hate to leave with us still miffed with each other *side eyes Hiddles*

        As for the lamb shot – oh good, he received it. I know how hard you worked on that. I do love his “Dr. Livingstone” look. It brings up images of humid jungles, unexplored waterways and mosquito netting… much mosquito netting. I leave you to your lambscapades tonight – and good luck there – I have my plans, thanks to you and that lovely, lovely pair of arms you provided.

        Two personal notes – I am still slugging through Fingersmith. I have moments were I am reading rapid fire and them it slows to a crawl – did you go through this? I keep thinking it must be done soon and look to see my Kindle tell me I am only 41% into it. Keep on keeping on?

        Secondly, editor wants the shirts. Insufferably Literary for sure and three others plus a generic and PlumeNotes will get its own!

        Ciao darling, Mr. Rochester has just handed me a martini so I am off. See you tomorrow *swak*

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Well, I seem to have missed some action. Drat!

        @ Fanty, I can help you with the Cumby lamb photo. This is one of his most ridiculed outfits for obvious reasons. The poor dear has absolutely no idea what goes with what or where to wear it. (I have a headache from that sentence.) He actually went to a movie premiere dressed like that. The lamb freaked me out until I learned that this pic was taken at the premiere of “Tamara Drewe.”

        IMDB says that it’s a comedy loosely based on “Far From The Madding Crowd.” As Thomas is my Hardy (more than Tom—calm yourselves, Tom Hardy Ladies) I don’t know how I could have missed this. So I’m going to have a look.

        Cumby, then more of a dork than now, doesn’t seem to know how silly he looks. The lamb was a prop from the film, which is set in the English countryside (of course it is.) But the HAT. No one has been able to explain the hat. Everyone just points & laughs. Cumby is known for loving headwear, but almost none of it ever fits him, as he has that alien head.

        But you noticed, I’m sure, that his hats in Parade’s End fit him beautifully! I loved him in the Derby.

        So, have good dreams, T.Fanty! Have dreams of Ben & his little lamb!

      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Miss Eyre,

        Hooray for the t-shirts! I dare say that if you were to print “insufferably literary” onto an ugly trilby hat, Cumby would buy a dozen. Enjoy your week off. I’m actually off to Toronto myself next week, so it threatens to be *very* quiet around here.

        Stick with Fingersmith. There was a while, about a third of the way in, where it started to drag, but it really picks up the pace in the second half. What bit are you up to? Enjoy your martini and tell me tomorrow.

        @EsCon – I don’t know if that does make it any better, actually. While I enjoy the idea that there is a middle-aged farmer in him that is trying to escape, his clothing is, on the whole, utterly atrocious, and it makes me think of Eddie Redmaye’s recognition of his girlfriend’s involvement in his sartorial choices. You don’t see any of this nonsense going on when Olivia Poulet was in the picture. On the upside, dressing as he does will minimize the likelihood of gay rumors.

        Night, all!

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Fanty,

        Sigh—-that pic of Cumby, bemused. If this is the look I will get from him, I plan to run-on until the end of time.

        Oh! I never thought that Eve might be Jane’s roommate in the attic! Oh, no no no. This would call for an entirely new set of Thornfield blueprints. & the kitchen would have to be kept locked permanenty. Where is Eve getting all of these shanks?

        J.eyre,

        Miss Eyre, i am so sorry I made you cross. I was a bit shocked at first about your new alliance, but I asked Cumby to read to me from the Book of Revelation, & that calmed me right down.

        I feel just awful about that bus-pushing incident. I thought that I had convinced you, while they were re-setting your bones in the ER, that you had simply lost your footing, what with the petticoats & the dainty slippers, & that I had nothing to do with your being in the path of that bus.

        I see now that you were attempting to get “inside” but Jane, being a double agent is very very stressful & so time-consuming! May I remind you that the dong sweaters cannot knit themselves? The Embassy has been calling for days about that back order. I don’t know how much longer I can hold them off.

        So, in the words of Princess Buttercup to Wesley the Farm Boy-turned Pirate, “I will never doubt you again.”

        And if you had simply offered the profiteroles before disclosing your clever sham-alliance, I wouldn’t have even noticed anything else.

    • marie says:

      haha.. he looks cute in the Star Trek photo, but he still does nothing for me.

      However, I would totally watch a movie with him as Streep’s young lover.

    • Dani says:

      Fully blame my love for Cumberbatch on you ladies ^^^ but I’ll sit this one out, don’t feel like being shanked.

      Never watched a Star Trek movie before…this will be my first.

  3. Amelia says:

    I’m so glad Cumby is doing well professionally. It’s not often you get to see someone exceptional break out and successfully juggle film and television commitments. What I really love about Benedict and Martin (Freeman) is that they’re still determined to keep going with Sherlock and aren’t cutting ties with Moffat & Gatiss at the first whiff of big screen success.
    And lastly; STAR TREK, OMFG. Some things were made to be watched on the big screen.
    “I am better.”
    “At what?”
    “…Everything.”
    I’m sure you are, Mr Cumberbatch, I’m sure you are.

  4. Kaye says:

    I want “Year of Cumberbatch” on a tee shirt and/or coffee mug.

  5. someone says:

    he looks really good in the first picture! and i never usually say he looks good unless he’s in motion and he’s speaking with that beautiful deep voice of his. oh, cumberbatch.

  6. T.Fanty says:

    Yes, I would.

    Oh, sorry. I just assumed you asked. My instinctive response to seeing a picture of Cumby is to decide on a position.

  7. Jenna says:

    I TOTALLY thought that said: “p0rno flick” instead of “popcorn flick”. Sorry, I know it’s still too early for my gutter mind.

    Anywho, I’ll be seeing this movie for Karl Urban. Horrible comb-over and everything because I want to hit that man with the power of Thor’s hammer. DAYUM! Unf!

  8. mkyarwood says:

    Haha, Meryl looks SO impressed. Love it.

  9. Tish says:

    Praying to the box-office gods that STiD will do great, domestic and overseas. Plus critical-acclaim like the first one. Who cares about those obnoxious Trekkie purists? I hope Orci, Lindelof and Kurtzman wrote a strong script. I just want Trek and Cumby to succeed and have longevity in Hollywood.

    From reactions to the screenings, Cumby has great accent, sweet, sad and heartbreaking in A:OC. Plus he sings and plays the piano. Great, great contrast to his Sherlock and STiD roles.

  10. Katie Too says:

    If cheering for the villain is wrong I don’t wanna’ be right.

    Also explosions and space and sexy girls! My inner teenaged boy just got excited!

    • j.eyre says:

      I am almost there with you except I worry about one of my few rules in film:

      I cannot brook ANYONE taking out the Golden Gate Bridge. They run into Alcatraz in this trailer so you know the GG will suffer. I couldn’t handle Ian McKellan doing it and I am not sure I can forgive The Batch either.

      At the very least, He will get a time out.

      Other than that – carry on.

      • T.Fanty says:

        I used to feel the same way about Big Ben/houses of parliament/ Statue of Liberty / Empire State Building, but then I realized that would effecively bar me from watching most action movies, so I lowered my standards (which is in many ways, the story of my life).

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I know what you mean, Jane. If anyone ever tried to blow up the Colosseum, I would wake up Titus Pullo & go medieval on their ass (es).

        I haven’t the foggiest idea why, but I have some strange sort of allegiance to the Gherkin and The Shard.

        And St Paul’s Cathedral.
        I can live with Parliament getting bust into itty bitty pieces (damn you, Cameron!) but if anyone touches those bits of London, sh*t is going to go DOWN. I don’t care how hypnotically alien and sexy you are, nobody messes with my city and gets away with it.

    It will be her 18th nomination-but no matter how good she is, she probably won’t win it, since she won in 2012. The Academy doesn’t really do “back to back” awards like that.

    Meryl has FANTASTIC airport style

    She’s so lovely

    This looks GREAT! I love the whole cast! Seriously I love them all, from Cumby and Chris Pine (who does vulnerable really really well) to that second guy from the left playing the guy who does that thing. The first one was insanely fun, I already know I’ll see this minimum twice.

    Wow—-that trailer. ~shiver~ “I will walk over your cold corpses.” Cumby looks Eee-vill. Brrrr.

  15. Reece says:

    He’s walking surrounded by Red Shirts, they’re all gonna die!!! *fangirls*
    I’m guessing/hoping the blonde is some major plot point cuz I’m sick of looking at her already.

    Wow, I’m actually not repulsed by that header shot of him.

  17. T.Fanty says:

    Okay, actually was able to just watch the trailer. One, I’m sure Cumby had good reasons for blowing everyone up, and two, if he speaks. Like. That. for the whole movie, it’s actually going to be a little annoying.

    Is it bad that even as a Trek fan, I kind of want him to kick James Kirk’s ass? It’s not a good thing when the audience finds the bad guy more interesting than the hero.

    ladies, ladies, ladies…Peace and Love! Please, put away your slutshanks so we can enjoy The Cumby, :)

    How amazing would it be if Meryl won again next year? God, she is just amazing. I truly believe Meryl Streep is the greatest screen actress in the history of cinema. Better than Garbo, Hepburn, Davis, etc. She is just on a level of her own.

    …Okay, that’s the end of my fangirl gushing. But how can you not gush over Meryl Streep?!

    By all the holy mercies – that voice is indeed God’s gift to women.

  23. I Choose Me says:

    Gah! His voice is soooo lovely. He’s giving me the vapors at work. Can’t wait to see this movie. More for Spock though than Cumby. Y’all have made me climb aboard the Cumby train but I fear respect Eve too much to get hung up on her man. Besides I gotta maintain good health for Fassy and Hiddleston. Can’t very well do that if I’m recovering from shank wounds.

    I love that this post has more than twice the number of comments of the Gosling post.

    Cumberbitches are the new Hey Girls.
