Welcome To Benedict Cumberbatch’s School For Memorizing Complicated Lines of Dialogue

'The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies' London Premiere

School’s in session, so listen to Professor Cumberbatch, students!

Benedict Cumberbatch dished to People on the key to memorizing all those painfully long, complicated lines of dialogue on his hit show, Sherlock. And now, he’s sharing his nuggets of wisdom with the world! People reports:

“There are two things. I memorize them very painstakingly and slowly. And I try to exercise, and stay off the cigarettes, booze and caffeine when filming, so I’ve got this good, healthy oxygenated blood and can think fast.”

Still, even a three-time Emmy winner and classically trained actor like Cumberbatch can have some trouble with the lines from time to time.

“There’s always a moment when I get behind and I’m having a messy day, and I’m just kind of going, ‘Sorry …. ‘ But by and large, you have to be really disciplined,” he says.

Cumberbatch, who recently announced he’s expecting his first child with his fiancée, Sophie Hunter, also says the lines can be harder to do depending on the season they’re shooting.

“It can be hell when you’re standing on the side of the Thames in January with the winds … you can’t even move your jaw, so trying to do one of the long passages of deduction is really physically hard,” he says. “You have to warm up, remember to use your diaphragm.”

And shooting in the studio can be equally tough. “It’s really hot with the huge studio lights. When it comes to speaking fast, you really just can’t be tired or unhealthy in any way, or it’s going to be that much more work for you.”

Ugh, acting sounds difficult. That being said, I hear craft services are a great reward for lines learned.  Benedict, any words of advice on best snacks on a shoot? Asking for a friend.

Chad Michael Murray Is Married…And Going To Be A Dad

'Cavemen' Los Angeles Premiere

Wait, what? Apparently, Chad Michael Murray is a married man and a future dad, the actor’s rep confirms to Us Weekly!

Yeah, I know. That was…quick!  The One Tree Hill alum, 33, secretly married his Chosen costar Sarah Roemer, and the two are expecting their first child together.

“Chad and Sarah are extremely happy and excited, and enjoying their life together,” Murray’s rep told Us in an exclusive statement. “We please ask that their privacy be respected at this special and personal time.”

And really there’s not much about these two before this!  Last Thursday Murray was spotted holding hands with Roemer at ABC’s Winter 2015 TCA party, and wearing a suspicious looking ring.  But the two have only been dating since August!

I know what you’re thinking- who the eff is Sarah Roemer? She’s best known for starring opposite Shia LaBeouf in the 2007 thriller Disturbia, as well as the films Fired Up! (2009) and The Grudge 2 (2006). Yeah, you know, movie stuff?

Congrats on a whirlwind courtship, marriage and pregnancy, you crazy kids!

Chris Hemsworth Thinks His Sexiness Is On The Decline

Chris Hemsworth On The Set Of 'Cyber'

Uh, Chris Hemsworth? You’re People’s Sexiest Man, you can’t say that stuff!

The actor stepped out at the premiere party of his film, Blackhat yesterday and yes, he was still definitely swoon-worthy in a Dolce & Gabbana Suit and new ‘do!

Of course he’s gorge, but the really surprising thing is that the dad of three (India Rose, 2, and twins Sasha and Tristan, 9 months) thinks that his sex symbol status is…humorous?

“That’s pretty funny!” the actor, married to Elsa Pataky since 2010, laughed in response to the term on the red carpet. “It might be over though. I might have hit my peak, and now I’m on the decline.”

UH, you need to have your head (and maybe your mirror) checked, sir.
