Benedict Cumberbatch & Prince William had a bromance at Windsor Castle

Benedict Cumberbatch in a castle!!! This might be the best Cumberp0rn of all. Benedict was one of an elite few invited to Prince William’s special fundraiser held at Windsor Castle last night. The fundraiser was for The Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital, which is one of William’s long-time patronages (he’s president). William went all out for this fundraiser, and by that I mean he asked Ralph Lauren to make Windsor Castle look super-fancy. Duchess Kate did not attend. She was “babysitting” – that’s not my word. That’s the word the UK papers are using.

In addition to our Cumberboyfriend, the guest list also included Kate Moss (she flat-out asked William where his wife was, and upon hearing that Duchess Kate was nowhere around, Moss began flirting with William), Emma Watson, Cate Blanchett, Cara Delevingne, Helena Bonham Carter and of course Ralph Lauren and his family. You can see the motherlode of photos here. It actually looked like a beautiful event. Most of the ladies wore Ralph Lauren, and I think my favorite look was Emma Watson’s.

The evening was a success, Ralph Lauren announced plans to fund a new breast cancer center at the hospital and William praised Lauren extensively. As it turns out, Helena Bonham Carter is quite the monarchist, and she confessed that years ago, she had drunkenly asked William to be godfather to her daughter (he declined). As for Cumberbatch… he and William were seen in deep conversation early in the evening, and Cumby told reporters that William “is just a stand-up guy.” Boy crush!

    I love Emma, but I’m not a fan of her look. I think Cate Blanchett looked the best.

    And Kate Moss flirting with Will after she made sure Kate wasn’t around, what an a-hole.

    • Emily says:

      Haha I’m the opposite. I can’t stand Emma (I find her fake and even a bit Goopy), but I love her look.

      • harpreet says:

        Check out the Daily Mail’s video. Branson and Lady Rose are behind Kate Moss looking bored when Kate is chatting up William.

      • Juliette says:

        Kate’s husband was standing right next to her. I don’t think she was seriously flirting with William.

  2. Liz says:

    Emma looks lovely.

  3. Hello Kitty says:

    Hump Day Cumby is the best Cumby of them all!

    What’s Cumby up to these days? Is he filming anything?

    • Duri says:

      He is chilling at the moment. It looks like he won’t be filming at all this year as Lost city of Z has been pushed to next year (it was supposed to shoot coming June). No clue if he signs something new which might film this year.

      I honestly feel that Benedict and Robert both will drop out of this film as they keep staling the shoot of this film and will sign on to something else.

    • 'P'enny says:

      @hello kitty

      seems his films this year have all been postponed. he is going to have a corker of a 2015 though.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Cumby seems to be very busy going to hoity-toity parties & hob-nobbing with the elite. Let’s hope he gets a job one of these days & WHEN is Imitation Game ever coming out?

      People have no business going to parties & slacking about when Sherlock is not being filmed & will not be seen again for at least 2 years! It’s annoying.

      • Lindy79 says:

        IG was announced for a 14th Nov release yesterday.

        Blame Gatiss and Moffat for no Sherlock. Despite them banging on about having the next 2 series planned, they apparently haven’t written anything so even if Benedict and Martin wanted to and were available this year they can’t do anything without a script.

        He mentioned a quiet project at that Polish film festival but folks are speculating it’s more of an independent short film than Sherlock 🙁

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Ah…thank you, Lindy. :–}

        I can well believe that Gatiss & Moffat are the culprits. I’m sure they believe that the passionate & devoted Sherlock fans will be waiting, drooling, for their return whenever they get into the mood to start working on it. No rush—we’ll wait. Perhaps some conceit over the success of their creation? Just sort-of kidding with that.

        I’m venting a bit because it does annoy me that the only show I like this much isn’t going to be seen again for a long time.

      • Lindy79 says:

        EC No I think you could be on to something there. I mean the first episode in series 3 showed they are more than aware of the fan base and what goes on in the darker corners of it and took the mick about it. I know BBC can’t force them to do anything but it does surprise me they don’t put more pressure on them given the huge ratings winner it is for them.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        You’re right about the fan-pandering. It was a bit shocking, & so glaringly obvious. I don’t think they had to work nearly as hard on Season 3. I guess they thought they’d “Give the ladies what they want!”

        I still say that Sherlock would not have done that to John at the end…the train, the bomb, the hyena-laughing at John’s distress. I am still agog about that!

      • Lindy79 says:

        @EC yes I liked the actual reveal and the decreasing quality restaurants but that part of the ending… I know Sherlock isn’t meant to have social skills but it just felt wrong. He knew how much it had hurt John, and I get him trying to get John to forgive him but it was cruel which is something that didn’t fit the character.

      • Delorb says:


        Cruel? This is the same guy who stomped on a dying man, killed a man in cold blood and told Mrs Hudson to ‘do shut up’. Okay, the last one was hilarious, but still.

        My take on that scene is that he still doesn’t understand how things work. He basically thought John would be hermetically sealed in Bakers St waiting on his return.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Both Martin Freeman and Mark Gatiss are very busy doing other projects these days. It was a joy to see Gatiss on Game of Thrones the other night and he’s also working on a Mapp & Lucia series, after having just finished work on Frankenstein and appearing in Coriolanus.

    • MissMary says:

      He has several things lined up but no films right now: this event, Hay Festival, the Chelsea Flower show with his mother (I know a lot of people are bitching about that but frankly, it’s kind of cute and it’s good PR esp b/c it’s on the day the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be there), then the Hamlet shindig starts with read throughs and run throughs and performance… And there was some scuttlebutt that Sherlock would start filming in 2015 now so… he’s keeping busy a bit it seems.

      • GeeMoney says:

        I thought that Hamlet was postponed until 2015? Can you do a run through for a play a year in advance?

      • MediaB says:

        Yeah, hamlet’s not until 2015 so unless he’s got something seriously up his sleeve, it looks like a quiet-ish year of odds and ends until Imitation Game campaigning plus last hobbit film shenanigan in Nov/Dec. If TIG is seriously in the running for big awards then I doubt he’d want to be filming Lost City in January… Then it would be Sherlock, then mid-year Hamlet prep would start in earnest.

      • Froop says:

        Hamlet has been pushed back to next Autumn, it’s not happening this year.

        It looks like he’ll just be doing PR/public appearances/general famewhoring until after the summer. In his most recent interview on Polish TV in Krakow he said he was working on ‘an independent film I’m not going to talk about’, plus The Imitation Game which will include a cringeworthy monster Oscar campaign courtesy of Harvey W.
        I wouldn’t be surprised if he dropped out of something since I don’t see how he’ll fit everything into 2015. Hamlet will take up nearly half the year, LCoZ, Richard III, Blood Mountain might be happeneing too… possibly Sherlock again.

      • Lindy79 says:

        I think the flower show is quite sweet. If you’ve listened to the radio interview from 2011 with him and his mum, they have a good bantery relationship.

      • GeeMoney says:

        A quiet year might be good for him, though… he strikes me as the type who likes to work himself to death. He could use the break.

      • Lindy79 says:

        He had an insane 2013 and was working solidly for 2012 (doing the bulk of the filming for 2013 releases). It’s the nature of acting, you get crazy periods and slower ones. Comparing similar actors Fassy, Hiddles, they all had it too and the exact same things were said. They go from being overexposed to having nothing lined up.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Don’t forget Hollow Crown Part Deux. Prepping to play Richard III is a project in itself.

      • Lindy79 says:

        I’m really looking forward to it!

      • 'P'enny says:

        Shakespeare is massive prep, I couldn’t even begin to try and learn one line, let alone huge speeches worth. The pressure will be crazy. I take my hat off to Cumby, learning two in what will be one year.

      • MissMary says:

        oooooh, I misread about Hamlet! I thought it was this autumn! whoops.

      • Katie says:

        I agree, GeeMoney. Super honest, he looked like hell for awhile and it appeared to be from his schedule. Not sure if having 2015 being just as bad if not worse than 2013 is the right way to go but at least he got a break. He’s not in his 20s anymore.

        He’d need to be practicing, memorizing and studying for Richard III/Hamlet now, however. Neither play is something you can just drop into a few months before.

        MissMary, the flower show makes total sense to me too; I’d want to do something like that with my mom if given the chance.

      • Isadora says:

        @’p’enny: I always wonder how actors remember all their lines, esp. in theatre where you’d better not mess it up and with such massive stuff like Shakespeare. It’s quite insane to me. Or my memory is really underwhelming considering that a lot of people do Shakespeare plays, also ordinary people in theatre groups or in school or whatever.

        Maybe it’s good that Gatiss and Moffat are slower about the next Sherlock season. If they did a lot of fan pandering in Season 3 (which I haven’t seen yet) they maybe ran out of ideas. A recreational break can be good at times.

        Speaking of recreational breaks, yes, it’s common that actor’s have crazy years and years with not much to do. I think Hiddles had a slight advantage last year because a lot of his public appearances were bound to Marvel stuff, so they didn’t appear as random. But in the end it’s all the same. As long as neither of them turns into Mischa Barton, everything is okay.

    • Hello Kitty says:

      I’m so impressed with the level of intel the Cumberbitches here have! So I guess we have charities until the fall when the Alan Turing bio comes out. Hopefully he pops by Jimmy Fallon or something in the meantime.

  4. Kali says:

    If men truly learn the power of them wearing a well tailored suit, many women around the world are well and truly f*cked. Honest to god, this is becoming a massive problem for me…. *unf*

    In the ladies, I really love Emma’s outfit. It reminds me of a softer/gentler version of that white shirt/fancy skirt outfit Sharon Stone wore to the Oscars back in the day.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      But Kali, if all men started parading around in beautifully tailored suits, we would soon start longing for the days of them parading around in jeans and t-shirts.

      • Kali says:

        True, very true. The suit only brings such joy because the wearing of them is so very rare (at least among the men I hang around with….).

  5. Esti says:

    Is it just me, or is Cumby’s suit too tight? It looks like he’s holding himself super carefully so he doesn’t pop a button.

    I like Emma Watson’s look a lot. Cate Blanchett’s was okay from the front but did wonky things to her chest in profile.

    • malina says:

      I think the sleeves are a tad too short!

    • 'P'enny says:


      he looks like he is standing like a plank of wood, badly posed for cumby. He’s normally better than that.

    • AG-UK says:

      Also have you or anyone else noticed how his hands are in the same positin in EVERY photo when he’s in a suit/tux at a formal event. Not beside him but the way they are curved like a mannequin? Or is it just me

      • Lindy79 says:

        Yes..I like it though. : /

      • Lilacflowers says:

        It is his “I’m being photographed” pose. Most actors/actresses seem to have a go-to pose when being photographed at events.

    • kri says:

      @Kali- I am so in agreement with you about tailoring. That man was born to wear formal dress Yum, yum.

    • kri says:

      His posture is exquisite.

  6. EscapedConvent says:

    I love Ralph Lauren as a designer & I’ll bet that event looked beautiful after he was through with it. Going to look for pics.

    Didn’t Cumby just wear Ralph Lauren’s white tie & tails to the Met Gala? I think he did.

    I’m glad to see Cumby making a new friend, but I was really hoping he would spend the evening chatting with Lady Bonham-Carter. I think she would put him into a spin & it would be very entertaining.

    • Lindy79 says:

      I’m still holding out, only a few pics from inside have emerged so I’m hoping there will be more.

      There is this one of him trying to get out of a pic/walking past but e can’t hide those cheekbones…

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Yep, that’s a Cumby cheekbone all right.

        Am I the only person who jumps out of her chair a bit when she sees Cara D’s eyebrows?

      • Lindy79 says:

        No they are rather noticeable. That seems to be her thing. The pictures of her smiling aren’t great, she has a rather derpy smile. Moody staring seems to suit her better.

        Her hair also looked like mine when I’m running out the door and can’t be arsed (which is most days).

        I know Kate is a fashion icon, and I get that truly, but here with the no hair or make up effort it doesn’t suit the event or look. She can normally pull off that boho chic thing but with the dress, it just looks out of place.

    • Isadora says:

      I think most people there looked quite presentable. So much better than the Met Gala (which is considered to be such a fashion event and still everyone looks awful). Btw I think The Batch wore Tom Ford there.

      I think Emma Watson looked especially lovely and Helena Bonham-Carter was perfect – she stayed with her usual style but downplayed for the occasion.

      And I don’t watch Downton Abbey, so I know absolutely nothing about this Lily James girl, but… I mean, she’s very pretty, young and (for the moment) blonde. And she’s not a Russian model. Go for it, Benny!

  7. mkyarwood says:

    I love the Carolina Herrerra combo in general. I wonder if Lily James was the only Downton lady in attendance…

    • Tatjana says:

      Laura was there too. And Alan.

      • mkyarwood says:

        I dunno why that amuses me so much.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        It was reported that HM would be gifting one of the Sandringham properties to William for his 30th birthday. It was unreported which one but many assumed it would be Anmer Hall. It is one of the choicest homes and William has been quite fond of it since boyhood. The estate is less than two miles from the queen’s residence and the Hugh Van Coaxums, longtime friends of William’s, also live very close by. so few were surprised when Anmer was gifted to the Cambridges last year.harry, whose official residence had been the palace, took up residence in the cottage once frequented by William and Kate before George was born.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Oops, wrong parking space.

      • AM says:

        Thanks, Dame. I understand that Anmer is a nice place to live, it just seems odd when so much of their social life (polo, Kate’s parents) is centered so far away. Then again, perhaps that’s not a consideration when one has friends who are always willing to lend their helicopters.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Lol that and if you live too near your getaway spot it soon ceases to remain one.

  8. Emily says:

    Seriously, where was Kate? I would have thought that she’d love this sort of event.

    • MissMary says:

      “Officially” she was taking care of George at home.

      • Emily says:

        Yeah, but who believes that?

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        The Marsden patronage is one William inherited from his mother and it’s particularly close to him. The palace has stated in the past that, with some exceptions, the couple intend to sponsor/focus on different charities, ostensibly to broaden the benefits of their involvement.
        The BAFTAs, for example, are William’s thing, as are most of the celebrity intense events.
        Kate does not appear to be that starstruck and I suppose we will all have to wait that much longer to see what it is she plans to engage in.
        *insert an eyeroll with crossed fingers for eternal optimism*

      • AM says:

        Remember when it was announced at the end of the tour that they would be taking two weeks off before taking up a rigorous slate of engagements?

        …Still waiting, Kate. It also seems like William’s upcoming engagements have to do with the Football Association. Only glamorous “work” may apply.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Their post tour press claimed that they would have a low profile summer with baby George. Harry has his own South America/Italy tour coming up and I believe KP wants him to shine as WillKat did down under. Not that there is much danger of the Cambridges stealing anyone’s thunder.
        But doesn’t it speak volumes about the convenient truths manufactured by PR? Conflicting and crafted to fit whatever is going on at the moment, imo.

      • Juliette says:

        “Babysitting” is staying home with George, a personal assistant, and two nannies…
        Besides overseas “tours” (also known as luxury vacations), Kate and William rarely do ANYTHING together. Lately, Kate doesn’t even accept wedding invitations if William is attending. For a married couple, that is very odd behavior.

      • AM says:

        Katie Nicholl, so who knows what the truth is, but in one breath it’s they’ll be hard at work and the next is “low key summer”. This way people can defend Kate by saying “she’ll be working soon” and then defend her when she doesn’t work by saying “oh but she’s taking the summer off with the baby”.

        Sort of OT, but you ladies likely have the answer – why did they choose Anmer as their country home? Seems far away from Gloucestershire/Berkshire.

      • LAK says:


        Snarky comment: it was free! If you think about it, these 2 don’t have a track record or even the desire to make a home of their own from their own financial means. They seem to passively go through life accepting freebies where ever they find them. It never feels like it’s their own particular desire, but that they are making the best of things.

        Nice comment: it was a gift from HM. It was probably the nicest property available on the list that didn’t need too much work done to it.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Agreed. That’s why it’s better just to wait and see what *actually* happens with these two.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Anmer Hall comment posted in the wrong spot. It’s actually upthread. Oops.

      • AM says:


        Bwahaha! It was free!

      • Delorb says:

        More morning sickness or taking it easy with the 2nd?

      • AM says:

        I’ve wondered this, Delorb, but we know she wasn’t pregnant as of 2-3 weeks ago.

    • HappyMom says:

      I know. Wow. Clearly she’s not star-struck, because otherwise why would she skip this???

    • Hautie says:

      I normally avoid these threads about the Royals… but… I am honestly beginning to think that there is something “off” about Kate not being allowed to attend these events. I don’t believe for one moment she sat this one out… of her own free will.

      Especially one where high end clothes and lots of PR are involved.

      And had the “Firm” wanted her there. Kate would have been front and center. I really do think there is something about how the media loses their minds, when she shows up for something. That pisses off the old guard.

      So they really do limit her exposure. I don’t believe for one moment that she waited all these years, to get married. Move into the castles… only to sit and wait for William to come back home from a gorgeous Ralph Lauren decorated, Charity event.

      As much hate that is thrown her way for being lazy. I really do suspect that she is being purposely held back from events.

      And would not be surprise that Charles is a bit bugged, about Kate’s popularity. Like he hated how Diana had the same pull with the public.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        I can certainly see why you feel this way and although none of us are qualified to say whose opinion is right or wrong there are, however, some indications that no one is “officially” holding Kate back.
        Charles did struggle tremendously with Diana’s enormous, eclipsing presence/popularity. But he is heir to the throne, in his 60s and posesses more confidence, focus and (his version of) charm than he has in his life. The dynamics one has with a spouse in no way resembles those one has with one’s own children. We have had no evidence to suggest that Charles is anything but proud and supportive of his children. If he were threatened I believe he would prevent Harry from sponsoring worthy causes – by all accounts Harry is fast becoming the most popular young royal, after Kate, and exudes his mother’s indominatable charm in spades.
        William and Kate make their own schedule so if you suspect any ulterior motives for Kate’s absence at the dinner I would look a little closer to hone 😉
        Kate honestly may not be at her best in large scale events scheduled for longer than 2-3 hours. William may be shielding her from criticism/scrutiny until she can improve. It’s also possible that the Marsden patronage is something he is unwilling to share and didn’t feel like trailing in Kate’s wake. Still a bit nutty when she shows up to something, you know?
        And lastly, she could have been glad to avoid the dinner. Maybe she was curled up in front of Netflix surrounded by Joe Malone candles and tucking into a pint of fat free, sugar free, lactose free, additives free, flavor free, ice cream free ice cream.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Well the Firm certainly doesn’t want another Diana situation, not that Kate has that kind of pull or personality—nothing to worry about there. She’ll never have that magic.

        @Dame Snarkweek,

        I am going to laugh for the rest of the day at the vision of Kate you put forth, especially the Jo Malone candles!

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Lol, she loves the grapefruit ones. I imagine women like her and Victoria Beckham burning vanilla scented candles while nibbling half of a flax bar – hoping like hell their taste and olfactory senses get confused.

      • AM says:

        Agree with you here, Dame, re: Kate not being held back. I also want to point out that the majority of events she has done in the UK since giving birth have been sparkling evening engagements. Certainly, if Charles or Buckingham Palace were holding her back, they wouldn’t want her to be on the front pages in evening gowns.

      • Esti says:

        AM, I don’t think that’s true. I think it’s been more day time events (a couple of hospice/hospital visits, something at the Art Room, the Irish Guards on St. Patrick’s Day, the Mandela condolence book signing, etc.). She’s obviously also done several fancy evening events, but I don’t think they’ve been the bulk of her schedule.

        As Dame Snarkweek said above, the palace has said that Kate and Will will primarily do separate events in the UK and that’s generally been the case. I don’t think there’s some conspiracy here, this is pretty normal for them.

      • Sarie says:

        Of course things are crazy when Kate shows up at an event, it happens so rarely that it is a huge deal when ever she dose. If the thinking is to hold her back to avoid overshadowing others that is ridiculous. If she were to do more events the interest would eventually sort of even out. Which leads me to believe that she may not be doing as much “work” to keep the novelty up.

      • AM says:

        Out of 19 official engagements between George’s birth and the start of the tour, 9 were sparkly evening events. So I was wrong because that’s not a majority, but the 19 includes things like Rememberence Day and St. Patrick’s Day (mandatory events) and the Mandela condolence signing (unexpected). I do still maintain that her schedule has been heavily weighted toward the glamour events.

        I do agree that the separate events are pretty normal for them. They spend time apart, that’s just what works for them.

      • Juliette says:

        Regarding Hautie’s assessment, I think it has some ring of truth. However, I do think there is a bit of Kate’s laziness at play too. A bit of both: Kate not pushing to be involved with more events, AND Kate not being scheduled by the powers that be to be at these events.

        William seems to have a bit of Charles’s inferiority complex (I will say – at this point however, William’s envy is MUCH less pronounced). But, his comment that Lauren would have preferred his wife to him is telling. Comparatively, Charles was sick with jealousy over Diana’s popularity. It likely stings him to this day that she will always be more beloved. Having the courtiers keep Kate’s engagements minimal and not too glitzy may be a way to keep her popularity reigned in.

        That said, Kate does not have Diana’s fire. Kate is much older than Diana, she’s already formed her ways, and her ways are playing second fiddle to William and spending a great deal of time at the gym, shopping, or with her family. Kate’s “public” personality has failed to take off, she hasn’t been given much practice at it either by her light schedule, and nobody is pushing her. She’s not going to push for herself either.

        They are all living in the shadow of Diana’s ghost.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @Dame Snarkweek,

        Hahahaha! That’s pretty brilliant. I think I’ll try that with my sad little Yankee candles & make myself believe that I’m eating strawberry buttercream or something.

        Grapefruit, you say! Oh, this is going to torment me.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        You made me laugh 🙂 And now strawberry buttercream cupcakes are staring at me, swinging a pendulum back and forth in front of my face, intoning ‘join us, join us’

      • LNG says:

        @Dame – what a great response. Often on these stories I find that new (or less regular) commenters get told off or told on no uncertain terms that they are wrong for having a different opinions. You response was informative and interesting (and hilarious!) without being patronizing.

        I’m very interested to see how this all plays out. I am really torn on whether they are just lazy or if there is some sort of other plan. I am very interested to see what William announces as his next move. I do think that Kate takes her cues from William and that she will never work more than he does.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Thank you for your kind comment. We royal loonies occasionally get a bit passionate lol but I know we all truly want every exchange here to be wonderfully conversational, informative and respectful. Your comment cements my determination to do just that 🙂

        I’m also straining to find some meaning in the Cambridge’s engagements, or lack thereof lol. Something to indicate a step in a certain direction in step with or independent of Charles. Pretty fascinating, really. I know that the RF used to have a biannual long range planning meeting to consider what tone they would take and who would do what in order to further that iniative. It seems that there may no longer be agenda crafting to that degree these days but who knows?

      • FLORC says:


        The day Kate works more than William is the day those Diana taking light from Charles/William theries carry weight. And that will never happen unless Kate wants to blaze her own trail and not do what she must to please William (aka her life since 2006).

        Also, looking forward to William’s next move. Will it be taking on his royal duties or more procrastination and vacations? Especially with the Queen bowing out of that order of the Bathe event he would know it’s time for him to get it together.

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Hi FLORC 🙂

  9. Duri says:

    He looks so good, he should wear Ralph Lauren more often. Prince William got nothing on Benedict.

    I liked Emma and Cate’s look.

    I have a question to all the readers here, why is Douglas Booth invite to such events (also saw him at Met Ball) ?? He hasn’t don’t anything extraordinary in his career and from the interviews he seems like a tool.

  10. Ronia says:

    Emma is a class act. Cate is always elegant. As about the duchess and the silly excuses for her absense, I already said what I had to say. Inexcusable if it were her decision and plain stupid if it were someone else’s.

  11. 'P'enny says:

    Helena B Carter looked really smart and her make-up was good. She made a real effort for once, I think she left her hubby at home though. I wonder if she was Benny’s date? andKate Moss looks like an old hag, and the photos of her, here, show us her un airbrushed proper age.

    And further Benny news, he will be at the Chelsea Flower show with his mum, awww and at the Hay Literary Festivals. He’s keeping busy during his down-time, and still his “friend” will back in London shortly. I am sure his ‘best mate’ can rub it in, how brilliant his filming experience was in his stead ;-p

    • Duri says:

      Well that mate should be careful of what he says because no offence that role only came to him after Benedict left. Had he not left the role,that so called mate would be the one sitting idle.

      • Camil says:

        “that role only came to him after Benedict left”

        tbh, I think that doesn’t matter anymore. The film is completed now.

      • 'P'enny says:


        I think he will tease the Cumby’s curls off, and boast about all the kinky stuff he got up too :-p

      • Camil says:

        @P’enny there are news of High Rise!… I need a Hiddles thread 🙁

      • Sighs says:

        Ugh. Sienna Miller? Should we make bets on how long it will take her to get her ho-claws into Hiddles?

      • Intro Outro says:


        You won’t believe it but we actually already managed to start discussing it in the previous Fassy thread 😀

      • 'p'enny says:


        we did make a start this morning, UK , Lol.

        I am very excited for the new casting, but Sienna Miller has left me fuming and i have sent her a letter by killer-pidgeon that she flirts or as much comes on to Hiddles the whole of Celebitchy Lady Garden Crew, Dragonflies, Hiddlesstoners and those who have no name will blatantly stab her! with a blunt knife. She is a tart, without a heart.

      • Camil says:

        LOL a killer-pigeon-ninja

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Duri, why should he be careful what he says TO Cumberbatch? Cumberbatch didn’t give him the role, he still had to earn it. And no, we don’t know that he would have been idle. He possibly could have been offered other roles if it hadn’t been announced that he would be spending nearly 3 months on Crimson Peak.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Sighs, doesn’t Sienna Miller have a kid now? Isn’t she involved with someone? Nobody needs her and all her baggage getting involved with co-workers on set at this point.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @’p’enny, somehow, with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns that your sentiments generate, I suspect Sienna may be getting your hands off message even without the killer ninja pigeon! And she had better take heed! Yes, I am really excited about the casting news. Only last night, we re-watched Henry IV, Part I in which Tom mimics Jeremy so brilliantly and then this morning read the news about jeremy’s casting as Royal. They work so well together and he’ll be wonderful in that role. Did someone say James Purefoy has also been cast? As Wilder? Or the other neighbor n Laing’s floor (I think he’s an accountant or something and I totally forget the name). They have quite a bit more casting to do before filming in July with the roles of Alice, Eleanor (is that the other woman’s name? the one with the cat?) and the wives of Royal and Wilder.

      • Sighs says:

        Lilac- I believe she has a fiancé and a child. Like that’s ever stopped anyone in Hollywood. Hasn’t she wrecked more than 1 couple? (Not that it’s only her fault, it takes 2)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Sighs, yes, she has quite a track record. Behavior that she seems to have inherited from her parents, but maybe a daughter of her own may have changed her views.

      • Isadora says:

        @Sighs: She tried to wreck Balthazar Getty’s marriage although he seemed to have decided that a divorce is too expensive and got back with his wife. And wasn’t she the reason for the divorce between Jude Law and Sadie Frost? And she was with Law (who’s not a saint either) when she had her fling with Daniel Craig (who was also together with someone). I’m not sure about Rhys Ifans, but he was dating Iris Palmer back then? No idea. At least Tom Sturridge was single, I think. I hope for all people involved (and all the men she meets on future sets) that she now found happiness and stability with Sturridge.

        @Lilac: I love this scene in Henry IV, part 1! I think the fact that very gifted people who worked with Hiddles are ready to work with him again (Ken Branagh, Mia Wasikowska, Jeremy Irons) , speaks really well of his work ethic and acting ability.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Isadora, yes, it does. Josh Whedon said he was one of the hardest working actors he has directed. That scene in Henry IV was truly amazing, not the least because of the way he jumps onto that table. He and Irons have discussed in interviews how they prepared for it – he asked Irons to record the speech for him so he could practice from that, but he also captured Irons’s body language too and as the scene unfolds and Hal reacts to Falstaff, you see him shake off the mockery of the king and slip back into Hal just by the way he relaxes into the chair.

      • Isadora says:

        Has anybody seen the rumors on imdb regarding new film projects for Hiddles?

      • 'P'enny says:

        @Isadora and co,

        Brilliant film gossip, the Greek runner film sounds right up Hiddles street. He can speak Greek, and he can run! And the 2 hours to Midnight seems cracking story [more my thing], there is also a rumour about his involved as a supporting actor for 20,000 leagues under the Sun.

        But, I take this stuff with a fine grain of salt, until it is official. It sounds like agent leaking news to see how stuff floats.

        @lilacflowers, he certainly is a hardworking actor, apparently he is still on set for Crimson Peak this week. Jess and Charlie have gone home. Working to the very last day, and he didn’t seem to get the film-breaks the others did. [apart from a quick stop to Oliviers] Although to be fair, he is pretty quiet on his travels. I got the feeling, from tintenet goss, he was jet-setting a lot to LA last summer for the Disney & Marvel stuff and no one knew.

        The film about Greek runner is funded by Disney, sounds like this may go back to last summer’s hobnobbing in LA.

      • Intro Outro says:

        I was just about to groan “Another biopic???” when I realised Hiddes hasn’t done any biopics yet 😀

        Both projects sound very interesting. I’m more into psychological thrillers than biopics anyway, so I’ll be more excited about Two Minutes if it is confirmed, I guess. On the other hand, Greek occupation during WWII and its resistance movement aren’t widely explored in English-language cinema or books. I think this Kyriakides biopic might also turn out very interesting.

        Lets’ hope these rumours get confirmed then.

      • Intro Outro says:

        On another note: I’ve been wondering for some time if Hiddles is more like a PR/party animal or if he mostly keeps quiet when he’s not working. Is he very visible between projects? I know he (over)does all Marvel promo campaigns from beginning to end lol, but when not shilling for Marvel? Can anyone enlighten this (relative) newbie?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @’p’enny, Kyriakides won the Boston marathon in 1946, after doctors told him that he would probably collapse and die on the streets because he was so emaciated and had not trained during the Nazi occupation of Greece. There’s a statue of him near the beginning of the race course. Come here, Tom, I’ll gladly show you every one of those 26.2 miles.

        Last summer, he had the Comic-Con appearance for Thor 2, re-shoots on Thor 2, did the Muppets and the Pirate Fairy for Disney, some OLLA stuff at film festivals, and then rolled into the PR for Thor and the US release of The Hollow Crown simultaneously, while prepping for Coriolanus. Very busy while people were saying he wasn’t busy.

    • Duri says:

      @ Camil—–I know it doesn’t matter because only thing matters is whose name is shown at the end credits. I am just replying to the unnecessary snark being thrown at Benedict by the poster above (who might be a Tom fan I guess). I am saying if he did not leave the film then Tom would be the one sitting idle which the poster considers to be such a bad thing.

      • 'P'enny says:

        i wasn’t being snarky – everyone who regularly visits this thread knows i love both of them and i am teasing. it’s become a ritual on this benny and hiddles thread to talk about both.

      • Duri says:

        well sorry I misjudged your tone then. I am new here and I did notice in previous two threads Tom was mentioned but I thought it was a mere coincidence. I think it’s very childish to bring Tom in Benedict’s posts and vice-versa (if that happens) because at most it seems like majority brings Tom here to praise him on Benedict’s expense, which I honestly don’t like. It’s good to bring him for fun once, twice not more than that. Again just my opinion.

      • 'P'enny says:


        posters here look for every opportunity to talk/comment bomb Cumby, Hiddles, Fassy, Hardy and Mcavoy in each other threads. It’s become socially acceptable for a lot – join in. It’s fun. There’s a lot of louuurve.

      • jammypants says:

        @Duri, last year Benny got mentioned in all Hiddles threads and it was to put down Hiddles. I don’t think either should be put down honestly. They’re both lovely (and have crazy fans that we all need to turn a blind eye to in order to enjoy them).

      • Duri says:

        heheh thanks for the invite, but right now I am a bit skeptical to do that. Maybe in near future I might jump in.

      • Intro Outro says:


        If you look through all recent Hiddles threads, none of them is devoid of Cumby 😉 Bring on the love, I say! As ‘P’enny has said – it’s become a game of sorts, and as long as it stays friendly and funny – I’m gonna enjoy all Brit threads in equal measure ^_^

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Duri, actually no, the majority way had been to tear Tom down to build Cumberbatch up until several of us starting pointing that out and now, for the most part, the hostilities have ceased and there is friendly banter. ‘P’enny loves both and jokes about them. The attacks on Cumberbatch have been reduced to one or two comments about aliens or ferrets or lizards, and those are not necessarily by Hiddleston fans. There are still a few who try to tear Hiddleston down to build up Cumberbatch but those are much rarer now and they don’t get much traction any more.

        Now, HIgh Rise, any one?

      • Intro Outro says:

        @Lilacflowers, I think Duri might have taken the comment on one of recent Cumby threads (where the poster said she was disappointed in Cumby and wanted to join Hiddles fandom) a little close to heart 😉 Also, to be fair, the previous Cumby thread kinda went in a very weird direction with people alleging rather unpleasant and judgmental things about him. I can see why someone who’s completely new to Celebitchy might be upset. But yeah, when I came to CB a couple of months ago, I went and read some archives and what you said about putting Hiddles down to build Cumby up was quite prominent. I’m glad the atmosphere has changed.

        High Rise is looking very interesting. I love Irons, I can’t wait to see him and Tom together on screen again! And, even though Miller is quite controversial, actually I think she and Tom will look interesting on screen. I still trust Wheatley. From his interviews I’ve gathered he’s the kind of director who sees outside the box and can make unexpected decisions which prove to be correct. We’ll see.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Intro Outro, when I read the book, I got sensations of claustrophia, and I’m not claustrophic. They can really set up a sense of tension and anxiety easily with narrow hallways, elevators, and darkness, which describes most of the scenes in the book. Tom and Jeremy have both said that they really enjoyed working together on Hollow Crown and their scenes together in that were fabulous, so this should be interesting. Miller, I think, gets most of her attention from her personal life but does seem to have some good reviews so if she does a good job, it should be interesting. My hockey team was just eliminated from the play-offs so I need to focus on this movie tonight. Either that or go looking for wherever Johnny Depp is filming locations for Black Mass near by, and I’m annoyed with him these days so that would just get weird.

      • Isadora says:

        What’s absolutely in Sienna Miller’s favor: I think she can pull off the 70s look perfectly. So I guess visually they’ll make a striking pair, although I’m still very curious how 70s Tom will look like lol.

        (Sorry about your hockey team, Lilacflowers! And look up Black Mass, film sets are always great even if Johnny Depp isn’t these days.)

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Isadora, we’ve had quite a few movies filmed in the area in recent years so I’ve seen several shootings and run into a few directors/actors. At least Black Mass is set here so it won’t be too confusing/annoying seeing recognizable locations in the film. American Hustle drove me crazy because so many of the locations used were really familiar to me and it was jarring to see them re-purposed as parts of another city. Black Mass will just be an issue of how well/badly they manage the accents or whether they make up an excuse for not being able to do the accent. I’m already having problems with the casting of Guy Pearce (whom I like) because the man he is portraying has a Napoleon complex and Pearce is taller.

      • Isadora says:

        Gosh, I’m jealous. These days they hardly ever film big things here, I guess you can have a similar scenery for far less money just a few miles away. Only “A Dangerous Method” was done here a few years back and I was booked as an extra except that I got sick right before the day of the shooting and couldn’t make it. So that’s the incredibly tragic story of how I nearly met Michael Fassbender lol.

      • Intro Outro says:

        Awww, sorry about your hockey team, @Lilac! And your extremely untimely illness, @Isadora! That must have sucked big time.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @isadora, perhaps you are meant to encounter Fassbender under different and even more exciting circumstances.

      • Isadora says:

        Thank you for your consoling words. The more exciting circumstances are a really nice prospect. 😉

    • Sixer says:

      Penny – what’s he doing at Hay? I will be at Hay (am every year).

      Scrub that – I looked it up. We don’t coincide. I’m there the first weekend. Surely it won’t be a mobbing, though? It’s hard to be at Hay unless you really want to be at Hay. It’s the back end of beyond. I book accommodation for the following year before I even attend the current year.

      • 'P'enny says:


        it’s ticketed and sold out anyway 🙁 I love Hay on Wye, been on holiday there. it’s my plan to make the festival one year.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Oh poo, you could have seen DUC in person!

      • Sixer says:

        Penny: not to blow my own trumpet – it’s a work thing, my area is publishing – but I can generally squeeze in to most things at Hay. I usually know someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows someone – and I’m good at sucking up! Outside the work stuff, I am seeing a Stephen Fry event for pleasure. Best I can do for you ladies!

      • Lindy79 says:

        Oh enjoy the Stephen Fry event!

      • LadySlippers says:


        If, um, you ever need, like um, an
        *assistant* to any of these star-studded publishing events, I do so EVER volunteer…
        You know, that’s what friends are for right?


      • Sixer says:

        Haha @ LS. I can assure you that these things are very rarely star-studded. Hay’s the exception, I swear. Most authors make peanuts. Plus, I am the lowliest of the low.

      • LadySlippers says:


        Oh I know! One day I aspire to be a poor author myself….

        *dreams of ramen (the only food I’ll be able to afford as an author) and 10 books being sold so I can call myself a ‘successful’ author (you know those 10 books are being purchased by friends and family, right?)*

      • Nighty says:

        @LadySlippers I’m just going to ask for something… Be a better author than the one who wrote 50 shades, so that I can enjoy your books… 🙂

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        If LadySlippers wrote a book with the text upside down and backwards it would be Nobel worthy beside 50 Shades.
        Having said that, however, I have no doubt LS could turn out a fine bit of prose if her comment style here serves as any indication.

      • Isadora says:

        I’m unselfish. I hope LadySlippers writes something like 50 Shades (which can probably done in 2 weeks while being completly drunk) and gets filthy rich in the process (like E. L. James). Reading 50 Shades was the only time I thought of ever becoming an author – can’t be that hard if this got published, right? It’s very encouraging, like watching Kristen Stewart acting or something.

      • LadySlippers says:


        I can confidently say I am a better writer than EL James. But then again, so was my daughter when she was in kindergarten. (Who isn’t a better writer? Plus, 50 Shades desperately cried out for a good editor. And I’m a team player, good editors are a must on my writing team)



        Thank you.

        *shuffles feet shyly*


        Ironically, one of my ideas is a romantic/erotic novel but geared for the New Adult market. But a much healthier relationship…. (I have stumbled across an erotic writer whose supposed to be fantastic. Just gotta read what he’s doing! I’m a big believer in reading to improve writing)

        Gotta get my migraines under control and then start writing again. I need strengthen several skills to get my mojo back. Those essential skills have atrophied with my poor health.

        (Ideas, however, are never lacking)

      • Isadora says:

        All the best to your mojo! 🙂 I don’t think I could ever be a writer, unfortunately. It’s not even the ideas because I’m an incredibly busy daydreamer but I tend to think in pictures, not necessarily in dialogues and to transform those pictures into descriptions is something I’m probably not very good at.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      @’p’enny, yes, Helena did look fantastic. She is a strikingly beautiful woman but tends to hide it under all that extraneous, often weird, stuff. It was nice to see her tone it down and don something lovely.

  12. GeeMoney says:

    Cumby looks great… love him!

  13. Abby_J says:

    Helena Bonham Carter looks beautiful. I mean, she looks almost normal. I am impressed.

    So how do these things work? Is the point to get money from the stars, or are the stars there to help OTHER people donate money?

    • Ronia says:

      Firstly, the “tickets” for the party raise a lot of money. Secondly, the presence of celebrities raises the media profile of the event which on its turn helps raise more money throught donations. Third, stars themselves usually donate separately from “buying” attendance. Aside from the celebrities, there were many researchers, big names in cancer treatment, etc. So it was also a way to showcase the people who actually work in the field and to provide them with the opportunity to make beneficial connections with potential donors.

      • Abby_J says:

        Thanks for the explanation! I know it seems that when fundraisers like this happen, they seem to focus on the stars (and that makes sense) so I figured that someone had to be opening their wallets!

    • Dame Snarkweek says:

      This was a dinner to honor Lauren for funding the new comprehensive breast cancer wing at the Marsden Hospital. So technically, those in attendance were most probably not asked to pay for their seating. However, the guest list was compiled from the hospital’s A list patrons and contributors. So, in a way, the guests have already “paid”
      When an event is described as a fundraiser then those in attendance pay hefty amounts to attend. Either way benefits the organization.

    • Ronia says:

      Yes, Abby_J, when we make such events (because I do that too) we always look for names to attract attention. It’s sad but otherwise the money raised is incomparable with what we manage to get, at the event or post-event, when media covers it extensively. Future sponsor/donor money is also very different when celebrities are present as we present the sponsors/donors with post-event reports. They do open their wallets too, celebrities I mean, almost all of them and almost guaranteed.

      • Abby_J says:

        Thanks for that! I figured that they made money, otherwise it would be kind of pointless, but I’m glad to hear that the celebrities aren’t just there to look pretty (although they all seem to manage to do that!).

  14. Talie says:

    It’s so interesting that for all the trash antics Cara Delevingine pulls, this is old hat for her. I’ve seen pics of her and her family mixing with Charles and William well before she was famous. You’d never know.

  15. PunkyMomma says:

    Oh! My Otter in a suit. Sigh. But the sleeves are too short.

  16. Allie says:

    I’m obsessed with Emma’s look! I love her lipstick too

    • FLORC says:

      It’s a classic and simple look. Very Carolyn Bessette imo.

    • Lindy79 says:

      I love it. Not 100% sure if it’s a little too mature for her but as an outfit for this event, I can’t fault it. She looks amazing.

  17. MissMary says:

    I was kind of holding my breath about HBC’s gown and I’m glad she went with her usual gothy-ness but didn’t go wild on it and looked classy for the event.

    Re BC’s lack of filming on tap of the rest of the year… I’m not going to be surprised if he turns up in a SunnyMarch gig again and that’s the “independent” he wasn’t going to talk about…

  18. Joanie says:

    Did Lady Whatserface, Benny’s rumored aristocratic gf, show up?

    • Duri says:

      sorry which lady?? what am I missing lol

    • Lindy79 says:

      There’s a lady in red (sings) sitting beside him in the video thing on Daily Fail but the tables were long so that doesn’t mean anything, she’s also in background of the Willam photo above but I think she’s with something else, is that who you mean?

    • MissMary says:

      If BC showed up with a woman or showed any vague interest in a woman, you can bet the Fail’d be all over that like a duck on a june bug by now. They’ve been trying to get some tea on him for ages.

      The artisto gf rumor is really just that, a rumor. She’s another of his “known one another for a while” female friends.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Jessica had her hair in a tight up style so it’s not her I don’t think (thanks to the indepth analysis of dresses and hairstyles from the DF) but either way he seemed to go stag.
        Given Lady Edith was in the same place as him again I’m shocked she’s not being linked with him.

      • Duri says:

        @Lindy79—yes Laura was there too. I remember her and Benedict were linked once by Daily Fail but never heard anything after that about them. I wouldn’t mind if he dates her, she seems sweet

      • Lindy79 says:

        The Downton crew went to Groucho Club afterwards. I love that the girls put their leather jackets over their dresses for it.

        No sign of Benny though, unless he was wearing a disguise.

    • LadySlippers says:


      Are you thinking from a few posts ago? They’ve been friends for ages and she’s actually dating someone else.


      You know, I’M a Lady. 😉

      (Except I only date him in the Garden *sniff sniff*)

    • Shiv says:

      Yes, Lady Kinvara was there and in a red dress.

      • Duri says:

        but the one sitting to Benedict was brunette not blonde, so clearly it wasn’t Kinvara sitting next to him

      • Lindy79 says:

        Ive never heard of her in relation to possibly dating him

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        Emile Sandee (sp)?

      • Joanie says:

        Yes, I meant Lady Kinvara, thank you. So she was there…I had a feeling.

      • MissMary says:

        @Joanie: As she’s titled, it’s not too surprising she’d be at an event hosted by one of the royals, esp as she’s a donor (or her family dontes) to Marsden.

      • Raven says:

        Looking at Lady K’s Instagram comments, it seems several of her friends and family were there so I’d imagine she was invited in her own right.

        I have no idea who the brunette seated next to BC is. But if he attended solo, he’s going to end up sitting next to 2 random people no matter what so I don’t think it means anything.

      • J says:

        I don’t think any dating rumors involving her are real – I mean she works in fashion and knows Anna Wintour – she would have been a perfect Met Ball date. And obvs she wasn’t there.

      • Encumbered says:

        I just have to say that Benedict does stag supremely well. He’s not someone who has to have arm candy at events and that along with innate social grace deserves respect. Of course, wearing a bespoke suit also makes him confident in social situations. And his ability to chatter on and on….And a glass or two of bubbly, perhaps. 😉

  19. Dame Snarkweek says:

    Cara looked pretty but her dress makes me think she’s about to play the piano or flute for a beauty pageant talent segment.
    Emma looks beautiful and she pulls off the dressed up socialite admirably. Only critique is her hair is too flat on top. A subtle rise would’ve added more elegance and refinement to her diminutive frame and balanced off the heavier, drapier seperates. Also she should have chosen between a dramatic lip and a dramatic eye palette, not both, imo, on a face so petite/young looking. Gomez often makes the same mistake in a misguided attempt to create gravitas.
    Kate looked surprisingly hard and overly painted, like a faux porcelain doll. In fact, she doesn’t look all that healthy. Her exposed leg looks gaunt – not just slender but more like there is poor muscle structure and undernourished skin.
    Cate knocks it out of the park.

  20. Merricat says:

    O…kay…I followed the link about Kate Moss’ “flirting” and looked at the pictures (with Kate’s words transcribed on them), watched the video, and I didn’t see anything even resembling flirting happening. She says “is your wife here?” he says something to the effect that she’s not, Moss says “so she’s not here?”, he confirms it, she says “what a shame!”. They exchanged a few more sentences (which the Daily Mail didn’t transcribe), and William then moved on to the next person in line. But apparently because she was smiling during the exchange and not looking completely grave, like someone died, that’s “flirting”. She didn’t reach out to touch him, she didn’t coyly giggle, she didn’t do anything flirty! She committed the crime of looking interested in conversing with him (smiling, maintaining eye contact with him).

      God, if that’s flirting I’m actually Aphrodite disguised as Nighty… 😛

      • Merricat says:

        yeah, turns out I’ve been flirting with EVERYONE I work with or meet! I better start acting disinterested and bored whenever anyone talks to me. o.O

    On a totally different topic, I feel so badly that Ralph Lauren hasn’t got a grandbaby! 70 something years old, he’s got three kids, two of whom are happily married following long term settled relationships, and not a single grandchild! Its got to drive him and Ricky absolutely mad. I know my mother would be incessant in her requests for grandchildren, were she that age and I was 40 and childless (I’m looking at you little miss Dylan’s Candy Bar).

    I have a sneaking feeling that Ralph and Ricky’s children all have a bit of Peter Pan syndrome, nobody wants to grow up and become a parent, they’d rather be the children who play forever.

      Some people don’t want kids. I don’t, and neither do my two siblings. My dad probably won’t get grandchildren. NBD.

      You’d Dylan is a friend of a friend and apparently, very driven. No fuss no muss type. Maybe she doesn’t want to create a womb with a view for her parents’ enjoyment.
      Besides, perhaps the Lauren’s daughter-in-laws do not currently want to have children. They actually get a vote, you know.

      • Juliette says:

        Yes, I do KNOW that the Lauren women are in complete control of their own wombs. I’m not a mouth breathing idiot.

        I can still feel empathy for Ralph that he’s not a grandfather. Becoming a grandparent is a massive joy in the later years of one’s life.

        I’ve never met Dylan, but I have met Lauren Bush Lauren on numerous occasions. I guarantee she will have a child one day, she openly loves children and is very involved with several children’s causes. She’s a lot younger than her husband and is probably just waiting for the right time. So, Ralph will have a grandchild, it just won’t be as soon as he would probably like.

    Kate and Emma are my definite favs from this event.

    Benny looks slightly uncomfortable in his suit.

  23. Amarbow says:

    Everyone looks very nice; Emma Watson and Zhang Ziyi especially. And Kate Moss’ husband: WOW! Why flirt with Prince William when you have him???

    Can I just say that Mr Benny knows how to wear a suit like a real man!
