In this video Benedict speaks about his looks and English heritage.

I’m not a typical beauty.” - Benedict Cumberbatch, BAFTA NY In Conversation [x]

[Sherlock] shouldn’t be someone you want to cosy up with. You should feel compelled by his company, but you should really know how dangerous he is.

What is Benedict's favourite food, drink ,books and hobby ?

Which London shops do you rely on?

I love Beyond Retro and charity shops for everything a man needs, from shoes to suits. I rely on sample sales at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane for T-shirts, original prints and one-offs. For food, I go to an Italian delicatessen called Giacobazzi’s near South End Green, Hampstead. For books, I visit Daunt’s and Foyles but I also love taking a book up to the fifth floor at Waterstone’s in Piccadilly and looking out across the skyline.

What’s the best meal you’ve had in London?

At Blacks, the private members’ club in Soho, because they’ve got a diverse seasonal menu with an Italian influence. I enjoy everything from the foie gras and terrines to the lamb roasts and offal.

What was the last book you read, and name some of your favourite authors?

Michael Darlow’s terrific biography of Terence Rattigan. Nabakov, Dostoyevsky, Dickens, Paul Auster, William Boyd, Ian McEwan, Martin Amis, Julian Barnes, Nancy Mitford, AS Byatt, Beryl Bainbridge, Hilary Mantel, Andrea Levy… Must get on and read more of them!!!

Do you have any hobbies?

Horseriding and scuba diving and motorbikes

You are the most polite human being. Nothing will change my mind. Even that swearing *winks*

Worst ‘internet meme’ ever too, it makes me gag.

@ NorthernSoul54 Hey Jen, I’m a friend of Helen’s - big shout out from Hobbit land aka LA. I hope you get to see the movie and enjoy it. - BC

The ring. RT @dr_mikki: #asksmaug if you were accumulating your own dragon’s hoard, what would you want as the prize of your collection?

The invincible dragon’s got to rule them all surely.

Smart. Original. Mod. RT @_LauraHolmes_: #AskSmaug How would you describe Martin Freeman in 3 words?

More than I can say in a tweet. RT @RachelFerron_TW: #AskSmaug how much do you love your fans?

RT @vereentjoeng: Cumbercupcake: Benedict in Red Velvet Suit on Red Velvet cupcake yum! #HobbitPremiere #AskSmaug pic.twitter.com/B39JhSZHad

An astonishing addition to the edible collection. One day, I will have to eat myself.

RT @JenCappelli: @TheHobbitMovie #AskSmaug 
Who would win in a sass-off? Smaug or Martin? ….can dragons give the middle claw?

Martin, obviously. Smaug gets pretty clumsy in a rage until he flies. Then, I suppose he might have time to give the birdy.

Yes, one day. RT @CeceCalabrese: #AskSmaug  Do you fancy a go at the Director’s Chair?

My grandfathers. I never met either. RT @b_smoraes: Is there a person (alive or dead) you would like to spend a day with? who? #AskSmaug

Neutron cream… better for your skin ;) RT @britishmenRhot: Which felt weirder on your face? Neuron cream or motion capture dots. #AskSmaug

My father read the book to me as a 7-year old child. RT @highsockmojo: #AskSmaug what/who did you use as your inspiration for Smaug?

Goat pie or dwarf cake. RT @Cholesteroldoc: What’s your favorite pie? Or are you a cake loving dragon? #CumberCakeCollective 

RT @rosiescot: #AskSmaug If you lived in Middle Earth, would you like to be a Hobbit, Elf, Wizard (yes, staff, beard, & all) or a Dwarf? X

I’m quite happy being a dragon, thanks. Oh, and the Necromancer - a disembodied spirit of evil. Less time in the make-up chair!

Is twitter treating you okay? @holmesexuals Yes, so let’s break it.

what was your favourite line in the movie? #AskSmaug@swiftsherlock I am… death.

#AskSmaug What kind of music do you think Smaug would enjoy? @PondsAt221B Liberace. A little bit of Burt Bacharach. And Enya.

If you could play any cartoon character/superhero/villain from your childhood, who would you play???? #AskSmaug@__mystique Puff the Magic Dragon.

#AskSmaug what would be your ideal christmas present? @tennanteleven Some free time. And a sea view.

#AskSmaug if you could master one other skill (apart from your glorious acting), what would it be? maybeginger You’re very kind. Flying would be nice. Piano and French are more realistic though.

would you rather breathe fire or be able to fly? #AskSmaug@fondueatspeedys Fly. Fly. Fly. And maybe fart fire while flying. To fly faster.



The answers so far. Pondering if he farted and left….
