Benedict Cumberbatch thinks lockdown was great
Well he loved lockdown for all the right reasons. While a lot of us got depressed staying at home, but there are still manyyy out there (including myself) who loved staying at home. For Benedict Cumberbatch, Lockdown gave him plenty of time with his wife and his boys which otherwise he doesn’t get. Life slowed down, you had a moment to breathe, to experience all the small things that we wouldn’t get ‘time’ for normally.
Benedict Cumberbatch is not only A marvel superhero (Dr strange) but also a real life hero. Or we can say that he is real gutsy.
Dr. Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch saved a man from Muggers
The Sherlock Actor, saved a delivery man from attackers who were attempting to snatch and steal his bike. And co incidentally, the attack happened near the home of his fictional Character Sherlock Holmes, 221B baker’s street.
Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter were travelling on an uber through marylebone high street when benedict Cumberbatch (age:41 years old) noticed an attempt of robbery and mugging happening on the street. He instinctively got out of the car, and tried to stop the gang of muggers who were trying to steal the bike of a deliveroo cyclist. He tried them to get off of the cyclist.
The witness to this incident was their Uber driver, who at first had no idea that his passenger was a great Hollywood star.
He reported that Benedict Cumberbatch jumped out, ran over and pulled the muggers away from cyclist. However the muggers started ganging up around him and things looked like they were getting worse, that’s when the Uber driver, Dias, joined in. According to the driver, benedict had held off one guy and looked like ‘he knew what he was doing’.
The muggers tried to hit benedict Cumberbatch but he defended himself quite well and pushed them away. The muggers later ran away, without any harm caused to any party involved. As per the driver, muggers probably recognized that it was Benedict Cumberbatch and they ran away.
The metropolitan Police, did report the case but no arrests were made. The cyclist got injured but wasn’t hospitalised. And reportedly there were no stealing of items committed.
Looks like, he is not only a wonderful actor but he is also a self-less man who got guts.
Because how many people these days jump in to save others from street crimes or literally anything wrong that happens right in front of us?
