Benedict Cumberbatch praises makeup

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie HunterBenedict Cumberbatch thinks makeup is ”wonderful.” The Imitation Game star admitted he has makeup to thank for concealing his jet lag, after only arriving in Los Angeles an hour before the start of the Golden Globes.

Speaking at the award ceremony – where he was nominated for Best Actor in a Drama Motion Picture – he said: ”I literally landed about an hour before the ceremony started. Makeup is a wonderful thing for men as well as women.”

The 38-year-old actor recently revealed that he and his fiancée, Sophie Hunter, 36 – who joined him at the prestigious award ceremony on Sunday night – are expecting their first child. When asked how he was preparing for the new arrival, he told E! News: ”Oh, you know, the usual ways.”

Meanwhile, Benedict previously revealed that his filming commitments mean he isn’t focusing on planning his upcoming wedding. When asked if he had started making preparations for the big day, he said: ”One thing at a time. I’m playing Sherlock now – just about to start – so my main focus is going to be on that.”

    His last comment is so telling. He’s too busy filming a TV series to make the mother of his child his wife. It doesn’t take long to get married, do it before a judge and then have a ceremony later. That’s what he would do if he wanted to get married. From what I just read, he doesn’t want to marry her. Not sure he even wants a kid with his flippant, “Oh you know, the usual ways. (Yawn)”
