NBC

"I feel terrified saying they're terrifying because they might come after me"

Keira Knightley has seen the Benedict Cumberbatch fandom grow from the time she first worked with him on Atonement in 2007 to their current film, The Imitation Game. She talked about the growth spurt with Seth Meyers on Wednesday's Late Night.

"It's terrifying," she told Meyers. "I mean, they're lovely. I feel terrified saying they're terrifying because they might come after me."

Knightley went on to compliment Cumberbatch's fans on their artistic abilities, although she joked that he attracts "hysterical sensitive artistic" types. The actress also shared an embarrassing story about her interaction with his fans, as well as a cute anecdote about her mother thinking Breaking Bad was a comedy.
