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.

Sean Penn Has Filed to Adopt Fiancee Charlize Theron’s Son Jackson!


Can you imagine Sean Penn as your dad?!

Well, that’s just what Charlize Theron’s 3-year-old son Jackson will have to start getting used to, sources reveal to Us Weekly:

“Sean always knew that to truly earn a place in Charlize’s heart, connecting with Jackson was one of the most important parts,” a pal close to the Gunman star, 54, tells Us.

The couple got engaged while on a trip to Paris this past November. While they haven’t secured a wedding date yet, they’re definitely taking steps to make things permanent.

“There is still talk of adopting again and giving Jackson a brother or a sister,” the insider adds of the husband-and-wife to-be.

Penn was previously married to Madonna and Robin Wright and is already dad to daughter and model Dylan, 23, and son Hopper, 21. So this will be marriage number three for Penn, and number one for Charlize. Personally, Sean Penn gives me the creeps but I love Charlize, so together they’ll make a celebrity couple that is fairly mediocre to my personal celeb tastes. Way to go?

Zooey Deschanel Is Engaged!

Zooey Deschanel & Jacob Pechenik Stop For Snacks In Studio City

Zooey Deschanel is not only pregnant, she’s engaged!

News of Jacob Pechenik popping the question come on the heels of  news that the two are expecting their first child together. Deschanel is due to give birth this summer…I wonder if the two will marry before then?

Pechenik and the New Girl actress first stepped out together in August after Zooey’s split from screenwriter Jamie Linden, whom she dated for two years. They presented themselves as a couple at the 2014 Emmys, posing together at the Nokia Theatre.

Zooey was previously wed to Death Cab for Cutie vocalist Ben Gibbard, but they split in 2012. Sounds like Zooey is liking the Chad Michael Murray MO of doing things– marriage and pregnancy ASAP!

Topher Grace is gettin’ hitched!

A source confirms to People that the  That ’70s Show star, 36, popped the question last week to actress Ashley Hinshaw, and she said agreed.

I know what you’re thinking: who is Ashley Hinshaw and what is she doing with my childhood crush Topher Grace? Well, Hinshaw, 26, is actually a working actress, having had roles on True Blood and Agent Carter, and recently joined the cast of HBO’s True Detective for its second season. Not too shabby…

Meanwhile, Grace has been shooting the indie musical comedy One Shot with Taye Diggs, Anne Heche and Rob Riggle.

Do you think the That 70’s Show Cast will be invited to the wedding?
