Defending a woman's honor! Talk about swoon-worthy!

Keira Knightley was chatting with Elle UK and revealed to them that her good friend Benedict Cumberbatch actually punched a journalist for her because the guy said something rude about her!

The incident happened a very long time ago, but reportedly Mark Kermode, of BBC Radio 2, referred to Keira as "Ikea Knightley," (because her acting "was so wooden") within earshot of the Sherlock actor and he punched him!

Well, the punch was in jest, and only on the arm, (not across the face) but the next time Keira saw him, she was surprised to hear that he had, indeed, stood up for her!

She asked him:

"When I saw him again, I said, 'Did you punch a journalist?' and he was like, 'I f***ing did.' Everybody needs a friend like that."

Who knew these two were such good pals?!?

Man, we can only IMAGINE how nice it must be to have Benedict as a buddy!

Handsome AND does the right thing for his friends? AH-MAZING!

    You're such a hypocrite. Just reading the Tila Tequila story about her threatening to hit someone yet this fool actually does and you're praising him. I stopped visiting this site a long time ago and I was right to leave. Scum!
