Benedict Cumberbatch thanks his wife and children as he accepts his Hollywood Walk of Fame star


Benedict Cumberbatch paid tribute to his wife and children as he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, saying his career “wouldn’t be half way through without you”.

The multi-award winning actor said his British status made the event “incredibly painful” but that he was also enjoying a “big ego stroke”.

He was presented with the award on Monday by director JJ Abrams and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

In a short speech, Cumberbatch thanked “a lot of reproach”, friends who he said would “would love to be here to take my anger away”.

“I’m British, so a part of me feels this is extremely painful. The other part of me is quite amused by this big ego stroke,” he said.

Turning to his wife, Sophie Hunter, he continued: “Your support, your honesty, sometimes withers as it is, your style, your grace, your beauty, your generosity. Your generosity and love is extraordinary.

“I really like this but it wouldn’t be half the trip if I went on my own without you as well as with you.”

He added that they have created a “wonderful family with three incredible people” and also thanked his sons for keeping him around by calling him a “stupid fart face”. “

“Someday, in disguise, maybe we’ll sneak out here and take a little picture together of dad’s star,” he said.

“But you are my little stars and I adore you.”
