Benedict Cumberbatch kisses wife Sophie Hunter at the premiere of his film The Power Of The Dog


They tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on the Isle of Wight in 2015.

And Benedict Cumberbatch and wife Sophie Hunter were more in love that ever as they packed on the PDA at the premiere of his film The Power Of The Dog amid the 78th Venice Film Festival on Thursday.

The actor, 45, cut a very dapper figure in a sharp black suit as he cosied up to his theatre directer partner, 43, who looked lovely in a white and red patterned gown.

Benedict teamed his suit with a crisp white shirt and black tie, finishing off the smart shoes with shiny patent black shoes.

While Sophie was radiant in a billowing a-line gown which featured thin straps, pockets and pleating on the skirt.

The beauty finished off her striking look with quirky earrings and a pop of bright red lipstick, while her brunette locks were styled into an elegant bun.

In a recent trailer for The Power Of The Dog, Kirsten was seen being tormented by co-star Benedict’s character.

The Western drama is the film adaptation of Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel and sees Benedict, 45, star as cowboy Phil Burbank.
