The actor knows how to unwind

Benedict Cumberbatch looks forward to simple pleasures when he gets a break from filming.

The busy Sherlock star, 37, loves to cook at home and take a leisurely stroll.

That’s his idea of relaxation.

Walking or running on Hampstead Heath, seeing my friends and family, cooking for myself, and the embrace of those I love,’ Benedict reveals in a Reddit Ask Me Anything web chat.

Beyond that, a whisky, the fire and a good book.
