Read Time:1 Minute, 27 Second





In his recent Saturday Night Live monologue, British actor Benedict Cumberbatch joked about the controversial Oscars incident where Will Smith slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith. 

Cumberbatch said, “”I really am thrilled to be back hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’. It’s been a really fun, great week.”

He said, “I have to be honest, though, because most of the sketch writers pitched me sketches every day, and most were about Doctor Strange – which is great, I love the guy, I love playing the character … but I have been in other films.”

He joked that Lorne Michaels – the executive producer of Saturday Night Live – asked him what other films he’d appeared in, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The actor added: “I said, ‘Well, like The Power of the Dog. And he said, ‘Nobody saw it.’ I said, ‘Come on, man, I was nominated for an Oscar for that.’ I mean, I didn’t win. I was beat by Will Smith.” He then added: “No, not physically! Not physically!”

Smith smacked Rock during the Oscars ceremony, after the stand-up comedian made a joke about his wife. The Hollywood star subsequently described his behaviour as ‘shocking, painful, and inexcusable’.

Meanwhile, Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Madness has opened to a good response from both critics and audience. Directed film Sam Raimi, the film is lauded for being starkly different from other Marvel films.
