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.’
