Cumberbatch sparks dating mystery
Benedict Cumberbatch has sparked rumours that he's dating Liv Tyler after the pair were snapped leaving a cinema together.
The Sherlock star, 36, and Hollywood actress, 35, emerged together from the ArcLight cinema in Hollywood earlier this week.
Days previously, the pair were both spotted at a post-Emmys party - after Benedict lost out at the TV awards to Kevin Costner for his role in Hatfields & McCoys.
The British actor, who split with the actress Olivia Poulet last year after 12 years together, recently said he enjoyed the fact that Sherlock had made him something of a pin-up.
"I've punched well above my weight this year. And that remains very much a secret... I find it hysterically funny ... It's a giggle. I wield it with a massive smile," he said of his love life.
The rumours that Lord Of The Rings star Liv, the daughter of Aerosmith star Steve Tyler, and Benedict are dating follows reports that they will be co-starring in the film Phoenix - a story of a couple dealing with a one-night stand.
Mother-of-one Liv split from Royston Langdon of the British band Spacehog in May 2008.
She has said: "I wouldn't be capable of having a casual fling. I'm far too sensitive, and I just wouldn't have any pleasure from it."
