The couple are incredibly secretive so it's no wonder that people keep asking…
Who is Sophie Hunter?
Well, turns out she's a pretty f*ckin' brilliant person! Like she's absolutely, 100% totally Benedict's perfect match!
Firstly, the 36-year-old grew up in Hammersmith, West London and gained a degree in Modern Languages from Oxford University. Oh, then she moved on to studying at the Jacques Lecoq school of theatre in Paris!
She met Benedict in 2009 on the set of the film Burlesque Fairytales, since she's ALSO an accomplished actress having appeared alongside Reese Witherspoon in 2004's Vanity Fair.
But that's not all she's known for, in fact, she's MOST known for her work as a director in the theater! She directed a play that toured North America titled 69° South and has directed a plethora of operas in various cities.
Not to mention the fact that she gained the prestigious Samuel Beckett award in 2007 for writing and directing her own play, The Terrific Electric, at the Barbican Centre.
Oh, and she's recorded an album, back in 2005 with Guy Chambers, that was entirely in FRENCH!
Impressed yet? We totally are!
Let's be real though, these two are the cutest! We ship 'em! Do YOU?
