Benedict Cumberbatch has further proved himself to be nothing but consummate gentleman after failing to describe the word booty.
Yes, poor Benedict got all flustered during a game of ‘Three Word Stories’ played with Jimmy Fallon.
All the pair had to do was take it in turns to construct a story using three words each at a time.
So far, so easy.
The twist was, however, that the object of the game was to steer each other to a say secret word from a deck of cards.
And Benedict’s word? Booty. Cue more British umm-ing and err-ing since Hugh Grant in Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Highlights from Benedict’s attempts included ‘A beautiful, big…’ and ‘You’ve gotta shake..’. Kim Kardashian’s name was also thrown into the mix at one point too, just for good measure.
So here it is in all its awkward glory:
The ‘Imitation Game’ actor recently shocked fans after his engagement to long-term girlfriend Sophie hunter was announced in The Times.
Never one to do things in the celebrity limelight, Benedict, 38, shunned Twitter and decided to announce his new relationship status via the traditional art of a newspaper advert in the ‘Forthcoming Marriages’ section.
Speculation of an engagement first came to light last month, when reports claimed Benedict had flown to Edinburgh to ask Sophie’s mum, Anna, for permission for marriage, because he’s quite the traditionalist.
Anna was asked about their relationship, to which she replied “Watch this space. You never know,” causing another 28439 rumours to pop up.
Now Benedict knows the rules to Three Word Stories, perhaps he’ll be able to teach Soph?
