‘Sherlock’ Star Benedict Cumberbatch Reportedly Has a Girlfriend

Benedict Cumberbatch is breaking his Cumberbitches’ hearts! According to a report, the 37-year-old titular star of “Sherlock” has found herself a girlfriend.
Page Six reported that Cumberbatch is already taken after he was introduced to an unnamed woman.

PBS “Masterpiece Theatre” producer Rebecca Eaton helped the star find his love interest, and apparently she’s been successful in doing so that she could only advise his fans to “move on.”
“That might also explain her other job: helping British hottie Benedict Cumberbatch find a new love interest,” the article reads.
“She wouldn’t say whom the ‘Sherlock’ actor has met, but she said it’s time for all those ‘Cumberbitches’ – the name used by his huge base of female followers – to move on.”
The rumour wouldn’t sit well with Cumberbatch’s legions of female (and some male) fans. The “Star Trek Into Darkness” actor is the Internet’s boyfriend, whose face is plastered all over social media sites, including Tumblr.
It’s not like Cumberbatch has been loveless throughout his life. He had dated actress Olivia Poulet for more than a decade before shortly going out with artist Anna James. However, after their breakup in 2012, the charismatic actor has remained single, which suited his fans just fine.
So if the report is true, whoever he is currently dating must be tough enough to handle his Cumberbitches as well.
Meanwhile, makeup artist Claire Pritchard-jones has revealed some behind-the-scenes secrets from the BBC series “Sherlock.”
At the Sherlock Holmes Convention in Vienna, Pritchard-Jones said that Cumberbatch’s curly locks turned green before filming began. His hair was dyed dark to resemble the famed fictional detective, but the makeup team didn’t foresee that his bleached hair would turn green with the combination of bleach and dye.
Needless to say, they had to make an emergency appointment to the hairdresser to get the colour right.
