If Sherlock had sex... with Molly

The Sherlock Sex story, part II


So we interviewed Benedict Cumberbatch (read it here) for our December issue (buy it here and have it delivered straight to your door)


We made a very beautiful film of Mr Cumberbatch on the set. And we made another, very funny, film of him playing word association games (as he refused to do a pub quiz with us).

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?

BC: No!

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.
