Sherlock star remembers 'erotic' moment
Benedict Cumberbatch had his first kiss when he was 11 – or at least he thinks he did.
The Sherlock star says he fondly remembers the moment he locked lips with a girl in watery surroundings.
‘[It happened] underwater. Mary. I was 11,’ says Benedict, 36.
‘The wettest lips you could possibly kiss.’
But the actor, who was educated at prestigious boarding school Harrow, admits there’s a chance he may have actually kissed a boy before his memorable encounter with Mary.
‘I think that was definitely my first kiss. Unless I’d kissed a boy at school in a f*cking play,’ Benedict tells The Times Magazine.
‘Which would ruin that very erotic Humbert Humbert-like memory I have of my first female obsession.’
