Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged. (Not to you.)
There are many ways a stranger can ruin your life. Spill coffee on you in the subway. Talk to you while you're alone together on the subway. Push you in front of the subway. But one way you never expect a stranger to ruin your life is by marrying some other, pretty stranger, a stranger you had no idea the first stranger was even serious with, like, didn't he just do an interview where he talked about dating casually? Did that mean nothing?!
Another day, another eligible bachelor off the shelf. First George Clooney, now Benedict Cumberbatch is preparing for married life.
The actor's engagement to Sophie Hunter, a theatre director, is announced in The Times today.
"Congratulations to the happy couple." (Insincere.)
