Sherlock star had unusual meeting at Oscars party

Benedict Cumberbatch might have some extreme fans but his weirdest encounter wasn’t with one of his Cumberclan.

The actor, 37, has admitted that his strangest meeting with an admirer was at a star-studded Hollywood do when he was spotted by celeb fan Ted Danson.

Legendary TV and movie star Ted, 65, certainly didn’t hold back in showing his admiration for Benedict and even shoved the likes of Kristen Stewart out of the way to do so.

The Sherlock actor writes in a Reddit Ask Me Anything web chat: ‘[My weirdest fan encounter was] Ted Danson at a pre-Oscar party screaming across a floor of people like Leonardo DiCaprio, Ray Liotta, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, et al while pushing past them and knocking their drinks. “OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! IT’S FUCKING SHERLOCK HOLMES!”

Sounds like Ted is a fully-fledged member of the Cumbercollective
