Benedict Cumberbatch on Photobombing U2, Tom Hiddleston & Wet T-Shirts

U2, Benedict Cumberbatch
U2 were nominated for an Academy Award for best song for “Ordinary Love” at this years ceremony, so the band were in attendance. Perhaps their most notable, and definitely their most widely seen moment, involved actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who jumped behind them, photobombing them.

Cumberbatch recently did an interview with Time Out London, where he discussed the humorous incident.

Representing darkness is Adam (Tom Hiddleston), a centuries old vampire with long black hair who spends the majority of the film in black or dark colors. He has been writing and recording music, including famous pieces that have been credited to other musicians – because that’s the way he wanted it.
