Benedict Cumberbatch has spoken out about his low key engagement announcement.

The Sherlock actor has told USA Today at a screening of The Imitation Game in LA that the method of announcing his and Sophie Hunter’s intention to wed is what he would have done if he “wasn’t famous”. (USA Today)

Cumberbatch and Hunter’s engagement was announced via a short notice in The Times last week.

The actor said:

It was a way of telling our friends who we hadn’t been able to tell before (they saw) some grainy shot of a ring on her finger.

USA Today reports that Cumberbatch greeted his Imitation Game co-star Matthew Goode (married to Sophie Dymoke) on the red carpet with “we’ve both found Sophies!”.

Too much cute!


Meanwhile, Geri Halliwell has followed suit, putting her engagement announcement in The Times too. 


Has Cumberbatch started a classy celeb trend?
