Baftas 2015: the rise of the trophy husband
Guess who is the trophy?
Exhibit B: Benedict
Cumberbatch, whose fiancee, Sophie Hunter, is a theatre and opera director
who speaks fluent French and once won the Samuel Beckett Award for writing and
directing. How sweet that she has settled for a lowly actor!
Except she’s quite good but not entirely fluent, she has a noticeable accent that native French speakers have pointed out. Plus she technically didn’t win the SB award/grant, the group she was in did. But it’s pure shade, questioning her achievements in light of her CV fluffing and calling her a coattail-rider/golddigger in so many words. She does act like she is better than BC because she is that ridiculous.
