There are many games we would like to play with ELLE cover star Benedict Cumberbatch. Sadly he refused the ones involving pub quizzes, Rubik's Cubes and naked wrestling. So we played Word Games instead, on the set of our exclusive cover shoot. You can get the issue here and we will mail it to you anywhere in the world. We're nice like that.

You know the score… We say a word, he says the first thing that comes into his head.

Damn, he's cute. Enjoy.
