Eddie Redmayne went undercover on the internet for GQ magazine and found this question: “Why are British gentlemen so charming? Like Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, David Beckham, Benedict Cumberbatch, etc.”.
His answer? “I know why Benedict is so charming, because he’s a phenomenal actor and a kind human being”.
He also said he would absolutely like to work with Benedict and Tom Hiddleston in a Three Musketeers or a James Bond movie. Here’s the video:
During an interview to Brazilian entertainment website Omelete, which followed the Marvel Studios panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in São Paulo earlier today, Kevin Feige said the Multiverse is the ”is the next step in the evolution of the MCU”. Take a look:
The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is gonna crack it wide open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series just before it, that’s not WandaVision, and for movies just after it in a big, fun way.
Evening Standard‘s Magda Ibrahim was at The Fayre of St James charity Christmas concert on Tuesday and told the newspapers’ podcast the reading Benedict did at the event was actually of an extract from a book he’s writing!!! She said:
He didn’t kinda give us too much of a clue about what the book is called or when it’s gonna be out but he and when went into the pulpit, he just said to us ‘yeah this is gonna be the first reading of this excerpt from this book and you’re all the first people to actually hear it’, which was quite exciting, and he said the only other people who’d heard it had been his editors so, I mean, it was quite an interesting reading, really. He described it as being quite unique and it was, yeah, definitely. I mean, I suppose I describe it as sort of stream of consciousness, really, but the bit that he read, it kind of tied in quite nicely with the event because it was sort of talking about the fact that you’re born and you become this individual but then, gradually, things happen and you realize you’re actually part of a wider community.
Here are the clips we’ve got of his readings thanks to @cateblanchyes and @kovalchuk_mary, who shared them on Twitter and Instagram, respectively:
[…] Instantly recognizable. You stand anew. Remade. You’ve rebuilt yourself, but you are different. […] You become a heroic, unique embodiment of both the things you cherish and the things that cause you pain. As you grow into this living idea, you become instantly recognizable among the millions of faces in the world. You become that which you think you are. You stand before the world and you say ‘I am here and this is who I am’. But there’s an influence at work […] and positions in the locus of the divine. Together, we are equal.
How Benedict of Benedict, to write a book exploring such themes. Hopefully, it won’t be long until we get more information about the book!
Update on 1st December
This post has just been updated to include another video and its transcription and to correct an error. Even though I (Gi) had included the aforementioned video in our post about the event, I still somehow failed to include it on this post. I also completely misunderstood the very last word of the very last video. My apologies!
Tonight Benedict attended the eighth The Fayre of St James, a charity event promoted annually by the Quintessentially Foundation in partnership with The Crown Estate in benefit of a particular charity. This year, the one in question is The Felix Project, which works against hunger and food waste, collecting surplus food from trusted suppliers and delivering it for free to other charities and schools so that they can offer healthy meals to the most vulnerable. They provide enough food for nearly 3 million meals per year for their 200 partners.
Hosted at St James’s Church in London, the event is a massive celebration of Christmas, featuring live performances, carol-singing and festive readings. Here are some pictures and videos of the evening:
Finally! The day has arrived and BuzzFeed Celeb uploaded to their Youtube channel the video of Benedict playing with puppies while answering fans questions. Cute doesn’t even begin to describe it. Watch it below
Check out our gallery to see screencaptures from the video:
Two young British privates during the First World War are given an impossible mission: deliver a message deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldier's brothers, from walking straight into a deadly trap.
