Despite hardcore fans hoping for Tom Hiddleston to be Benedict Cumberbatch's Best Man during his Valentine's Day wedding, that was not the case.
As it turns out, the "Avengers" star didn't hold Best Man duties although he did witness his friend's "magical" ceremony to his pregnant wife, Sophie Hunter, in the Isle Of Wight.
Some reports also suggested that Cumberbatch could have asked his "Sherlock" co-star Martin Freeman to be his right hand man but according to People Magazine, that also wasn't true. Cumberbatch's "The Hobbit" co-star did not even attend the nuptials.
So if Martin Freeman nor Tom Hiddleston weren't Benedict Cumberbatch's best man, who was?
People reported that the Internet sensation asked three friends to stand by him during the special day. None of them were famous except for one.
According to reports, he asked fellow British TV personality Robert Rinder to be one of his best men. Known as Judge Rinder, he is reportedly the UK's version of "Judge Judy."
Rinder is also a columnist for The Sun in addition to appearing in the ITV courtroom show.
Cumberbatch reportedly wanted to have genuine childhood friends with him when he tied the knot with his lovely wife on Feb. 14.
"They kept it pretty quiet. They were friends before either found fame," a source told People about the pair's friendship. They attended Manchester University together and kept their connection close ever since.
"The Imitation Game" star even officiated his friend's civil ceremony with long-time love Seth Cumming back in 2013.
