Single Benedict Cumberbatch Takes Michael Fassbender To Oscars After Party Instead Of A Girlfriend, Single ’12 Years A Slave’ Stars Have A Boys’ Night Out


Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch and his “12 Years A Slave” co-star Michael Fassbender both appear to be single, so the friends had a boys' night and partied sans girlfriends at the AGO Oscars after-party after the awards ceremony.

Cumberbatch, 37, and Fassbender, 36, had a lot to celebrate – their film won Best Picture! Both actors have important supporting roles in "12 Years A Slave," with Ford playing a relatively benevolent slave owner who sells main character Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) to Fassbender’s character, an unbearably cruel slave owner.

“12 Years A Slave” scored major acting nominations, but only Lupita Nyong’o took home the prize, a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as abused slave Patsey. Fassbender and Ejiofor both scored nominations, Fassbender for Best Supporting Actor and Ejiofor for Best Actor, but lost out to “Dallas Buyers Club” actors Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor) and Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor).

Entertainmentwise writes that Cumberbatch and Fassbender were joined at the after-party by their co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor, 36. Ejiofur brought his longtime girlfriend Sari Mercer as his Oscars date and also celebrated at the Governors Ball after-party.

After the boys’ night out, Cumberbatch was snapped leaving the AGO party with his publicist, Karon Maskill – no Oscar romance for him. Fassbender was also seen leaving the party alone, apparently single despite earlier rumors linking him to Gerard Butler’s ex-girlfriend, Madalina Ghenea.
