You know, I never really thought about the similarities between Christian Grey and Sherlock Holmes before. But after seeing the snaps of Dakota Johnson and Benedict Cumberbatch at lunch together on Tuesday, I can't help but compare the two.
The Fifty Shades of Grey actress seemed to be having a grand old time with the Golden Globe nominated actor, who portrays the title character on BBC's Sherlock, the day after both attended the Met Gala in NYC. Did y'all know they were even friends?
It's kind of funny that they are though, since Dakota plays Anastasia Steele opposite Christian Grey, who most definitely at least starts out as a high functioning sociopath, and Benedict plays a self-proclaimed high functioning sociopath as Sherlock. Huh.

Anyway, just like sweetie Jamie Dornan seems nothing like his totally intense character in real life, neither does Benedict Cumberbatch. In fact, the Brit decided to have some fun with the paparazzi, and place a napkin over his head under his sunglasses, and give the photogs a thumbs up.
How freaking cute is he? And I love how Dakota is laughing here, just enjoying the silliness of it all. Her life has changed so much in the past several months since she landed the Ana role, and it's only going to get more intense leading up to the big Fifty Shades premiere in 2015. Having friends and having fun is a very good thing.
Jamie Dornan and Benedict Cumberbatch are both completely endearing and totally hot. And lucky Dakota Johnson apparently gets to enjoy the company of both of them.
Who would you rather have lunch with -- Jamie Dornan or Benedict Cumberbatch?
