‘I Think I Can Wait’: Benedict Cumberbatch ‘No Longer In A Hurry’ To Get Married

Benedict Cumberbatch may have been spotted getting close to Russian model… but don’t expect to hear wedding bells any time soon after the Sherlock actor revealed in a recent interview that he is in no rush to settle down and have children.

Admitting that he was always thought he would have a wife and children by his mid thirties, the actor who turned 37 on July 19, told Elle Japan:

“It is a wonderful thing to get married young and become a father. I used to think that I’d get married in my mid-30s and have children. But now I think I can wait. I’m no longer in a hurry to get married.”

The actor, who is due to return to the set of Sherlock later this month to continue filming of the third series, also revealed that he’s a fan of women who have a good sense of humour.

“A woman who knows that she doesn’t have to get all decked out to look good is sexy. A woman who can make you feel smart with her conversation skills is also sexy. I believe the sense of humor is important.

“I also think someone who is good at working with others is sexy. It’s like playing a tennis doubles match. You need to be able to work well together if you are to stay as partners for a long time.”

Whilst the actor is in no rush to get married, he did insist that he wouldn’t rush into proposing to someone. Benedict added: “I would like to first get to know the partner and build a trusting relationship before making the commitment.”

Meanwhile, it appears the identity of the mystery woman who was spotted holding hands with Benedict over the weekend has now been revealed as Benedict’s friend and  actress Charlotte Asprey.

Revealing that Charlotte who went to the same theatre school as Benedict, was helping the actor celebrate his birthday, a source told the Mirror: “Charlotte has been friends with Benedict for a number of years now.

“She joined him to celebrate his birthday along with several of their close pals and some of his family members.”
