EXCLUSIVE: How 'Doctor Strange' Star Benedict Cumberbatch Feels About Being Called the 'Internet's Boyfriend'

By
With a projected opening weekend of $75 million, Doctor Strangeis getting plenty of buzz lately, but the film's star, Benedict Cumberbatch, has been attracting attention from the ladies for years.
The Oscar-nominated actor has been called the "internet's boyfriend" for the plethora of memes and tweets that have been made by adoring female fans.
One fan tweeted, "Sometimes when I'm sad, I picture a shirtless Benedict Cumberbatch slowly eating an apple fritter. Try it!"
Despite the flattering comments, Cumberbatch pointed out that he's off the market.
"Most people know that I'm married, so that's it," Cumberbatch told ET while promoting Doctor Strange.
Cumberbatch wed theatre and opera director Sophie Hunter last year. The couple has one child together, 1-year-old son Christopher.
In Cumberbatch's upcoming Marvel superhero movie, Dr. Stephen Strange's journey begins when his hands are ruined in a devastating car accident. After exhausting all medical possibilities for mending his damaged hands, the famed surgeon flies to Nepal looking for a more exotic option -- which he finds in the form of The Ancient One, a mystical mentor.
Under her tutelage, Strange learns of multiple universes and supernatural powers and in the process becomes a target for those who want to abuse magic for evil purposes.
