Benedict Cumberbatch Wears a Napkin on His Face For Lunch With Dakota Johnson (PHOTOS)

He may play a “high functioning sociopath” on BBC’s Sherlock, but in real life, Benedict Cumberbatch knows how to have a laugh! The 37-year-old actor showed off his silly side while lunching with friends in NYC on Tuesday, May 6.

The Golden Globe-nominated actor was spotted grabbing a bite to eat with 50 Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson. (Who knew they were friends?!) The duo were joined by an unidentified female as they dined at a restaurant on the Lower East Side.

Benedict didn’t seem all too concerned about being photographed by the paparazzi — in fact, he used the opportunity to flaunt his sense of humor. The actor jokingly hid his face underneath some napkins while flashing a thumbs up to the camera.

One day earlier, Benedict walked the red carpet at the 2014 MET Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The actor put on his serious face as he donned a Ralph Lauren tuxedo, while pal Dakota looked stunning in Jason Wu.
