Calm down, Cumberbitches. Or, rather, one Cumberbitch in particular. Benedict Cumberbatch, who is known for having some rather passionate, dedicated fans, is maybe wishing they weren’t so right about now, as the “Sherlock” star has found it necessary to call in the police after an obsessed female fan made repeated trips to his London home and left mysterious red ribbons to the building and his car, according to the Sunday Mirror.
“Benedict is used to people mobbing him wherever he goes and he’s a good sport about it. But this individual has taken things to the next level and there was no option but to pursue official action,” a source says. “Turning up at professional events is one thing but arriving uninvited at the family home is quite another. It might be that she thinks it’s harmless, but it does feel a bit sinister. Leaving red ribbons is obviously a bit of a game, but it does feel quite dark.” You don’t say.
