We also asked him what Sherlock would be like in bed. Becuase, you know, so many people were asking...
Now, in the final instalment (sorry about that), see what Mr Cumberbatch had to say on the subject of Sherlock's BFF Molly, and his nemesis Irene Adler.
ELLE UK: Would you like Sherlock to shag Molly?
ELLE UK: Would you like Sherlock to shag anyone?
BC: Oh he has. He shagged Irene Adler. They definitely got it on that night they had together when he rescued her from a beheading [laughs]
ELLE UK: No they didn’t
BC: Well that’s for me to know and you to not know.
ELLE UK: Would he even enjoy sex?
BC: Oh yeah, even if it was for queen and country or for some purpose, yeah. You wouldn’t know the difference, you know [laughs]. He’s sociopathic, he could probably do that, I think
ELLE UK: Well, it sounds pretty uncomfortable…
BC: Was it uncomfortable when he kissed Molly?’
ELLE UK [All soppy]: Awww, nooooo
BC: No it wasn’t, was it!
ELLE UK: It was a GREAT kiss.
BC: A great kiss!
ELLE UK: The hair thing…
BC [mock pompous voice]: Hmmm that was my idea
ELLE UK: Did you practice that first?
BC: No, no I didn’t practice it, I just fucking did it. I had loads of glass in my hair [He does the hair thing. I faint] and I just go for the girl.
