Benedict Cumberbatch is opening up about how he saved a man’s life as an alleged attempted robbery was taking place in London.
The Avengers: Infinity War actor, 42, humbly addressed the reports of an incident he helped stop last November while on The Ellen DeGeners show on Monday. Cumberbatch seemed hesitant to speak about what transpired but told host Ellen DeGeners he “didn’t think twice” about getting involved.
“I heard you were in London and you saved someone from getting robbed,” DeGeneres, 60, said.
“Basically, yeah. I feel weird about this because I haven’t talked about it at home — it became this huge furor,” the actor said. “I saw a Deliveroo bicycle delivery guy surrounded by some guys on a very cold November night. I just stopped the Uber we were in, got out and tried to intervene and tried to calm the kids down.”
