Benedict Cumberbatch in 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness'

Benedict Cumberbatch repeats as guest on the American comedy show ‘Saturday Night Live’ and take the opportunity to congratulate the women in your life on Mother’s Day. Basically around this point the British actor has built his initial monologue, a start that, as you well remember, the writers of the program write and go through the approval of the guests. So Cumberbatch just wanted to laugh with his life, except for one exception… But what an exception.

The actor, before paying tributes to his mother and his wife, clarifies that they always remember him for his role as Doctor Strange, although he has done more things. He gives the example of ‘The power of the dog’, a film for which he was nominated in the category of Best Actor at the 2022 Oscars. In line with this, it was when He threw the pullita at the notorious incident of the night: the slap that Will Smith unleashed on Chris Rock following an unfortunate joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Cumberbatch underlines the aforementioned nomination as an achievement, despite the fact that in the end Smith, nominated in the same category and finally awarded, beat him up. “I didn’t win. I got beat up by Will Smith… Not physically!. After this moment of genuine laughter among the attendees, came the occasional point: “I went to a boarding school outside of London, the same sounds to you, it’s called hogwarts, got a remarkable reaction; or the joke around the parental life of the interpreter and his partner, Sophie Hunter, who raises their three children while Cumberbatch dedicates himself to “go around dressed as a wizard”. “We are on par, if you think being a mother is difficult, try doing this”adds the actor while moving his hands like his character in the movies.
